Jessica the manager, she made our day.

Hotel nacional is a historic hotel, opened 1930. Last renovation at 1992. Hotel is very old and you should lower your expectations. 1-Wifi is free for hotel guests, for others 5 cuc per hour.2- Buffet breakfast is great, its complimentary3- The exchange rate in hotel also good same as airport currency4- concierge is very helpful, they book for us all dinner and show reservations.5- Rooms are old, they clean daily. Unfortunately sheets looks clean but they are stinky due to they probably don't have enough equipment in laundry.Overall it was a good experience, jessica manager she was very helpfull, changed our rooms, fixed the issues as much as she can. Thanks for making our trip much better

Best Hotel in Havana but below western standards

Nice hotel, lovely grounds, but food was awful.Staff were very friendly and could not do enough to help.I would go back to this hotel again but eat out in private restaurants.The architecture in Havana is beautiful.

Expensive & dated bedrooms

The grounds of this hotel is stunning and hotel is so big but the bedrooms were so disappointing, the bed gave me a bad back and rooms are small considering this is a 5* hotel. The prices of drinks were about £5.50 a drink of rum and coke

Old Charm that needs a bit of renovation

Gorgeous historic monument that stands out in skyline of central Havana. A short walk to Malecon where you can sit back and enjoy the sunset and people watch. This hotel has the old charm of Cuba, the foyer and lobby and ambiance is a must see - and don't forget to order a mojito and smoke a cigar in the picturesque 1930s courtyard. There's even two peacocks that add to the quintessential bygone setting.Saying that, when it comes to basic comforts we came to expect of a 5 star hotel; this place has a lot of work to do...Rooms need a renovation but on a contrary there is running hot water. Wifi, is complimentary if you are a staying and probably the best in Cuba; as wifi/internet is non existent. Breakfast has good choices but don't expect 5 star quality in terms of food and service. Also if you like to workout on your holiday, this hotel has gym but the equipment is outdated. This hotel has so much potential. With some significant upgrade on rooms and commercially minded management, this could be one of the world's top hotels. Overall this is a very good hotel, if you want to experience the real Cubano style; raw, simple and beautiful. THE GOOD *Hotel's historical charm and traditional Cubano style.*Hotel provides complimentary wifi for guests, but be prepared you need to log in and out when using an iPhone. *Complimentary Hotel tour every 10am Monday - Saturday.IMPROVEMENTS *Rooms need upgrading as they look a little outdated; bed linen and furnishings should be updated.*Toilets need to work, as our toilet did not flush properly. *Disclosure to guests of smoking and non smoking rooms. For non smoking rooms in a smoking floor they need to be air freshened.

Trouble with Gala Hotels

BE CAREFUL if you make your reservations for this hotel through Gala Hotel Group. I made a reservation for two rooms a few months ago -- costing some $4000. I had trouble changing the reservation. I therefore made a separate one DIRECTLY with the Hotel Nacional de Cuba. That went smoothly. Gala promised me 2-3 days to process my refund. It's been SIX WEEKS. I keep writing to them. My advice: Deal directly with Hotel Nacional. Avoid Gala. I look forward to Cuba!
