Hotel Nacional de Cuba
- What's Included
- All Inclusive Features
I admit I did stay at the hotel but walked around their elegant lobby and sipped on very tasty mojito! The hotel is very elegant and their grounds are beautiful. I was impressed with the staff. They were so polite and helpful. We exchanged currency at the desk, bout an tnternet card, and enjoyed the regal atmosphere here.
Stayed here for 5 nights. Definitely not a regular 5 star but I doubt u could find a better place in Havana. Internet is sketchy and slow. The restaurant by the pool is ok but inconsistent. They try hard and that's a plus. Line of taxis right outside the hotel and is just 10 mins to old Havana (10 cuc). Used the gym a few times and that was well equipped. The garden area outside is stunning. The service outside can be slow when it gets busy in the evening. They make a great Mojito. A very busy hotel in general. I would def stay here again if I went back to Cuba.
This is considered a five star hotel with good reason. Everything about it is steeped in dated elegance. The place is always bustling. As you enter you can still see the bullet holes in the wall from the revolution. There is plaque to commemorate this. In fact the hotel is a sort of mini-museum with portraits and paintings throughout its luscious grounds. Tours of the hotel, which is huge, are offered six days a week and take about two hours to complete.The grounds are most gorgeous at the back garden/bar are that faces the Malecon. There is seating and table service and lots of beautiful people. Service is good here. You can charge to your room, but you cannot pay with American dollars. This is true throughout most of Cuba. Prices are reasonable, but not cheap here for small plates and drinks. You cannot get a good vodka martini, but the rum drinks are a very tasty change.This is one of the few hotels that has a business center. You can use their computers for a fee. I had an iPad but had to go there most times to establish my connection. Internet service is very poor, erratic and slow. Attendants were as helpful as they could be spending perhaps as much as fifteen minutes getting me connected. There are hot spots (garden, pool area). I was lucky to be able to get service in my room most of the time, but that is not the norm. Forget social media. That is all blocked.The rooms are large, and comfortably furnished with old but serviceable furniture. Maid service is daily. The room is clean. Robes are provided, and there is a stocked minibar.There is an expansive dining room that serves a large buffet breakfast. There are musicians that serenade you with guitars and violins. Food is plentiful but not varied, and a few of us got sick after eating there. You have to eat and drink cautiously. There are signs in all the rooms warning not to drink the water. (They should also warn against the cut fruit.) If you get sick, there is another hotel a block away with an infirmary that they send you to. There are several restaurants and upscale event rooms in the restaurant. They are expensive even by American standards, but very popular. The biggest food bargain here is by the pool where you can order a Cubano sandwich which cannot be consumed by one person.The hotel changes money at registration for guests. There is also a currency exchange upstairs, but I could see no advantage. Change your dollars to Euros before arrival to avoid the 14% tax on American dollars. The hotel has many shops with good prices. You can see cigars rolled on demand. The prices for cigars is the best I saw on the island. Euros trade 1:1. There is no fee to convert the money back to Euros or dollars when you are going to return. Don’t worry. You will not have any leftover money especially if you have visited the lavishly stocked minibar in your room. Next time, I would have this locked right away. Their bookkeeping leaves a bit to be desired.If you want to make an excursion on your own, the hotel staff will arrange it for you. Don’t forget to take a ride in one of the old cars. Also take time to walk about on your own. There are good reasonable restaurants and flea markets only blocks away.This hotel is expensive but worth it.
This hotel is very elegant. The back of the hotel is beautiful with a great view. The rooms need to be updated and the plumbing in bathrooms is an issue but the rest of the hotel makes up for it. This is a must stay in Cuba.
Hotel with history, charming. But do not forget it is Cuba...I have dream to stay here and we did it.We've got a room with Malecon view, nice. Room is not so clean, a lot of dust. Looks nobody stayed in this room for long time. I would say room is not great.Hotel's lobby is magnificent.Restaurants are great. Mohito is the best in Habana, when sitting and sipping in garden bar with Malecon overview - relaxing!Just go along the floors and read the sings at historical rooms....
