Many famous people stayed at the Hotel Nacional de Cuba, right in the heart of Havana, such as Marlon Brando, John Wayne, Gary Cooper, Marlene Dietrich, Buster Keaton, Frank Sinatra, Ernest Hemingway and many more.

Very nice hotel

My family has stayed in havana before but this was our first stay at the nacional. you will be immediately impressed with the elegance and beauty of the hotel, grounds and staff. the rooms were neat and clean but the rugs should be replaced as they are starting to show their age. the free wi-fi was great in most of the hotel floors but spotty in parts of our room. the breakfast cafeteria offered a variety of foods, fruits, freshly squeezed juices, delicious omelettes to order and the best cuban coffee around. the hotel bar was expensive and the drinks were weak. the cleaning staff were perfect. the concierge staff were great to deal with. being able to change your currency at the hotel was a huge benefit. the pool was beautiful and well cared for. i would definitely stay here again and recommend it to family and friends.

Old hotel with charm but dirty

We had two rooms #314 and #323 and we requested and paid for ocean view rooms. 314 had marble flooring with a beautiful unobstructed ocean view. 323 had dirty blue carpet with food stuck on it and a very bad smell. the ocean view was very very tiny and you had to stand in the far right side to see it haha. the manager tried to move us but we couldn't find an ocean view room. the room wasn't amazing but the staff was very friendly, all the amenities we needed including great customer service, money exchang, food just so so but over all stay was good. i would stay here again just in a different room.
