Like the title states ... it was nice to say " I was there" being it's historical significance during Cuba's hay day. After a long day of exporting the city, we stopped in to have a drink and a quick bite. The building and the grounds were beautiful but the service was very slow, we had to try numerous times...

Must pop in for sunset but beware it is pricey. Unfortunately filled with tourists that are all on their phones. SO happy that we stayed in a place where we got to disconnect and learn about local life!

I didn't stay here - just came to look at it and have a drink. By all means come and look around as it is an interesting building, but don't expect any service! We went to have a drink in the outside area overlooking the sea. All I wanted was some coffee but was told I had to go to... More

Really neat place to check out and have a few drinks. Lots of history there, amazing grounds, and some cool views. But as with many hotels in this developing country, it is not even close to being up to date. This wouldnt be a problem if not for the price. You can find a better, cleaner, more modern and comfortable... More

The Nacional is one of the most famous in Cuba and an excellent value. The rooms were large and, surprisingly, the beds were very comfortable. There were several restaurants and bars, including a 24 hour cafe, a buffet and a higher end restaurant. The bar and seating just out back of the hotel is an ideal place to rest from... More

We ordered drinks at the outdoor bar to watch the Malecon, our waiter then proceeded to ignore us for 30 minutes and when he finally returned, he again attempted to take our order. The service was terrible and he had a poor attitude. Would not recommend.

We signed up to see the Cabaret show at the hotel. We got there (on the bus) 1/2 hr early, so we walked around the Hotel. Built in 1939 it is still very impressive, with a beautiful dining room and outdoor area to smoke in. The show room was less impressive. Very small, dangerous stairs with no railings and they...

Got cocktails here, not cheap, but nice view and historical. Sat outside, there's a little bar to get cocktails and beer.

We really enjoyed our stop into Hotel Nacional. The h otel has a park located in the rear that is absolutely beautiful. If you take the walking trail you will come across a tunnel system that was utilized by revolutionaries during the Cuban missile crisis. For a small donation, a guide will take you through the tunnels and give you... More
