The Hotel Nacional de Cuba is considered a symbol of history, culture and Cuban identity. The guns that made up the old Santa Clara Battery are on exhibition at the garden, they were declared part of the World Heritage Site. The Hotel Nacional de Cuba was declared a National Monument and it was inscribed in the World Memory Register.
With its privileged location in the middle of Vedado, the center of Havana, it stands on a hill just a few meters from the sea and offers a great view of the Havana Harbor; the seawall and the city.
The Hotel stands out due to its refined elegance and its ancient splendor, which since 1930 has attracted a large number of personalities from the arts, science and politics, such as British Prime Minister Winston Churchill, artists Frank Sinatra, Ava Gardner, Johnny Weismuller, Maria Félix, Jorge Negrete, and scientist Alexander Flemming.

    There’s a fair bit of history and nostalgia in this famous Havana landmark.
    This is an iconic Havana location, and not to be missed. There’s no problem about non-guests visiting, and you’ll probably want to stay for a drink anyway. It’s great to sit above the Malecon with a cocktail, which will cost little more than you’ll normally pay elsewhere in Havana. As well as taking in the views, take a chance to see the huge gun emplacements, with guns manufactured by Krupp’s still in situ.
    Inside the hotel be sure to visit the area dedicated to the numerous famous guests who have stayed at the hotel, including Frank Sinatra and Ava Gardner. This room also includes statues of Compay Segundo and Nat King Cole.

    We have zero complaints about this hotel – Hotel Nacional de Cuba. Yes it is old, but there is a ton of history there. Our room was very comfortable and had everything we needed. Breakfast was phenomenal. Wait staff was attentive. Concierge was super helpful and called local restaurants to make reservations for us. Cigar shop was amazing. Mariela was our maid while we were there and she was so sweet and friendly and did a great job making sure our room looked great when we returned each evening. I highly recommend this hotel

    Lovely hotel in old city: The hotel is nice. It’s old but well-kept and clean. Each floor is a little different. We stayed in two different rooms (one at the beginning and one at the end of our Cuba trip). A/C worked well, plenty of room, nice bathrooms. Staff was always ready to help. The pool was nice. The restaurant for breakfast buffet had lots of options including filtered water.

    Exciting trip to Havana: Beautiful luxury hotel in the heart of Havana! We stayed on the 8th floor overlooking the gardens and the ocean. Breakfast buffet was lovely and the staff was very attentive. Hotel could do with a bit of an update but perhaps in Cuba you expect that old-style touch. Cannot wait to go back again!

    Perfect Vacation! We travelled as a family of 4 from March 11-18, 2020. This was our first time in Cuba so I don’t really have anything to compare it with. The hotel was fantastic it is a beautiful resort very clean and very modern rooms are spacious our room was cleaned daily and our mini fridge restocked. The beach is absolutely gorgeous. They were plenty of sunshades and chairs, Bluewater white sand. There was a lot of entertainment throughout the hotel and a lot of music and live performances which were very good.
    The hotel staff were very pleasant nice smiling happy the hotel was very clean we were there during the start of the Covid pandemic and hand sanitizer was offers at every restaurant every washroom and I seen staff continually disinfecting tables and door handles I felt very safe at this hotel and it’s not too far from the airport and pretty close to the town of Varadero
