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.

Old world charm and elegance

The hotel nacional de cuba is the perfect example of old world charm and elegance. from the moment you step into the beautifully tiled lobby to the elevators and the rooms, you feel like you have stepped back in time. the staff are friendly and extremely helpful - from the reception to the concierge, the cleaning staff and especially the breakfast staff. one morning a waiter asked if we had enjoyed the cuban coffee and on seeing there was none available at the time he quickly ran and made a special pot for us - too kind!
the rooms are clean and the ac works well - which is great as cuba is often very humid.
the grounds are a mix of historical significance and comfortable relaxation areas - the war tunnels are very interesting and there are several bars where you can relax with a traditional mojito. a very very pleasant stay.

I enjoyed our night here, and the terrace etc. the food needs improving - the buffet dinner was not kept hot enough and some was undercooked. otherwise a very enjoyable stay.

Extreme disappointment

We did not get to stay at the nacional hotel havana due to overbooking by the staff. we arrived without being notified of this and were treated very rudely by the reception staff and sent off to a substandard hotel out of town. very disappointed and greatly ripped off( $660us).

Old classic hotel, dated rooms

Really classy place, good location along the malecon and lots of history.

it also has wifi for purchase btw - which was pretty fast!

the one thing we didn't like were the dated rooms. dingy old blue carpeting, not too much light, and frozen in the 1980s.
