Great Place!

My wife and I spent a week here in October. Stepping into the hotel is a step back into the glory days of Havana. Beautiful lobby with lots of woodwork, old clocks, Sevilla tile, and huge chandeliers. Check in was a breeze, very friendly staff with a currency exchange desk next to reception. We stayed on the executive floor which came with a delicious buffet breakfast and the most delicious coffee. Room was clean and spacious with an updated bath, in room safe, lots of storage and plenty of channels on the television. Pool area was great, both the original hotel pool as well as the more modern pool area. The back veranda was always so relaxing as well as beautiful. A great place to sit, unwind, have some drinks and listen to some great live Cuban music. Live peacocks walking around also!!! I would like to take a moment and tip my hat to the waitress named Yaimara. A lovely and very friendly young woman who worked so tirelessly each and every day running back and forth taking care of the customers and always with a smile on her face. My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would stay here again as well as recommend the property to others!

Ok: Here is the low on Hotel Nacionale...

Historic..Far cry from a Ritz Hotel and I wasn't expecting that! Rooms are exactly what you see on the website, just saying so you wont be disappointed. If you like history & nostalgia this is it! You can sit and have dinner at the same table as Fidel Castro. Sleep in the same room as Frank Sinatra Etc.....You must do the hotel tour, you will learn so much.Hotel Staff is everywhere if you need, manager is very helpful. Everyone is very nice, including the tourists. Leaving daily tips for the maid staff (few dollars on the pillow) goes a long way. Food is pretty good (you are not in the U.S.) shows are excellent and prices are cheap.YOU MUST CONVERT to the Cuban Peso. If you decide not bring US dollars (they charge 15%) then bring Canadian dollar, get it from your bank, I saved 5% overall. Breakfast buffet is free and its pretty good, huge selection. If you do outside tours go to the desk and get help, you should ask a few people about any questions you have bc you will get different answers! Everyone in hotel speaks English, but once outside, it can be tough. Very very safe everywhere in Cuba. You must bring all amenities you will need bc there is no where to buy, not even outside the grounds. No sundries store no snacks, good food out on patio. Nice pool, great massage, highly recommend.

Old but nice view

This hotel is one of the oldest in havana, which is there from pre-revolution times. The rooms are old but spacious. The best part is the open bar which ovelooks the malecon. Internet connectivity is bad in cuba and u have to buy cards at hotel reception.

Overpriced

Hugely overpriced, like all hotels in Havana. I would not stay here for a special occasion like a honeymoon or you will be disappointed. Do not expect Western standards. The accommodation is in need of extensive repair. There were ants in and around the coffee machine in our room (which was not complimentary anyway) and under the beds had not been vacuumed. Doors, sockets, lights, switches and air conditioning did not all work properly. There was a lot of noise from music downstairs so bring good earplugs. Even the famous mojitos at the bars outside were cheap (not in terms of price!) and inferior.However compared to everything else in Havana, it is a safe base which has necessary amenities like currency exchange, entertainment and a tourism desk. One good thing: there was a lot of choice at the breakfast buffet.

Hotel with lots of character.

My hubby and I stayed here recently on our 1st visit to Cuba.The rooms are a bit dated but this is more than made up by the character and vibe surrounding this hotel.I would highly recommend the hotel tour. Our guide Estella was very knowledgable and quite a charming character. She is a credit to this lovely hotel and her witty summarisation of past events made the tour all the more memorable.
