Great Cuban Sandwich

We stopped to visit and have lunch on the patio. While the art bar is interesting, I can't take so much smoke, but outside it's a great place to people watch and have a cuban sandwich. Caution: They are HUGE. The service is very slow - a pace you will get used to. The drinks usually come with the meal -ask for them first or you will sit for 35 minutes dying for a drink! I loved the old photos and the Hemingway Bar. We plan to stay here our next visit.

What an amazing place! You are immediately transformed back in time when you could envision the elegance this place had and still has! Everywhere I explored I was in a state of amazement. There is a old charm royal feeling you get as you walk through the lobby.I enjoyed several delicious cups of coffee on the oceanfront terrace, I could stay there for hours listening to stories of the history of this place..The guest it hosted is evident by the photographs on the wall. A great location it's close to everything! The view can't be beat! A must -See Classic Charm! Gorgeous!

The grand old hotel of Havana

We researched on where we should stay in Cuba and after a lot of deliberations picked the Nacional. It's rich history, prime location and the grandeur of the property are truly amazing. The hotel needs a renovation but overall its majestic lobby, dining area and grounds are mesmerizing.Grab a pinocolada at the bar and look at the celebrities who have stayed at the Nacional. It's like a guest list on Oscar night.A tour of the hotel is a must. From Sinatra's room to where the Al Capone stayed are available for viewing.Get a room with the view of the ocean. Have a stroll at dusk on the roads leading to the hotel.It's an icon of Havana and Cuba Despite availability of better accommodation there is nothing like the Nacional.

Definitely NOT a 4 or 5 Star Hotel

Our tour guide described the Hotel Nacional as a pig with lipstick. Ground floor and outside bars are fun to visit - a trip back in time (though cocktail prices are noticeably higher than at other local restaurants). Elevators often unreliable; we frequently had to ride in the staff elevator. The smell of mildew was very strong on the upper floors. Rooms just adequate; carpet was filthy. Staff disinterested and generally curt.

Ready. Get Set. Relax!

Grab a Natural Daiquiri, a cigar and a couch with some friends. Great service, grab a ham sandwich if you need a snack. Great hangout spot and beautiful hotel! It is not in Old Havana but it is definitely worth the quick cab ride for an evening after dinner. Did not actually stay in the hotel.
