A mythical palace, the Nacional takes us back to Cuba in the 1930s. Its lobby is as busy as a station, showing how popular it is with holiday makers.

    Location 4.79 /10

    Ideal location, if not a little far from Old Havana, the Nacional de Cuba overlooks the Malecon, to the west. It takes about 20 minutes to get to the airport.

    Accommodation 7.70 /10

    The rooms are not very stylish but are comfortable. Air conditioning, satellite TV, direct telephone for international calls, bathroom with bath, safe. Half of the rooms overlook the sea, while the other half open onto the town. 24 hour room service.

    Overview 8.45 /10

    The Nacional is a beautiful building built in 1930. It was last renovated in 1992, which would explain why certain places are a bit dilapidated, especially both swimming pools and the restaurant-buffet. It is surrounded by gardens overlooking the sea.

    Food and drink 7.45 /10

    Cuban and international cuisine in an old style setting.

    To know

    The Nacional de Cuba is a benchmark for hotels. It is just like an old fashioned palace: a prestigious name, an elegant setting, a unique location, a large capacity and very good service. Nevertheless, some parts of the hotel need renovation.

        Hôtel particulièrement agréable avec une vue époustouflante ! Il est vrai qu'il fait un peu vieillot et que l'immeuble devrait être rénové pour coller aux standards occidentaux mais pour un aventurier passionné d'histoire et de culture, c'est un endroit à ne pas manquer

        Hôtel de l'âge d'or cubain des années 50 ! Pleins de charmes, de Souvenirs historiques et Artistiques...depuis son ouverture en 1930. A vivre au moins une fois ! cela change des hôtels modernes et sans âmes.

      • Advantages

        Tout près de la "vielle Havane", au bord du Malecon

      • Disavantages

        Nous n'en avons pas trouvé. C'est un vielle hôtel, mais bien entretenu.

      The Inglaterra is the type of hotel that gives the town its sole. Ten minutes from Old Havana, on the immense Parque Central, the Inglaterra takes pride of place like an old palace that might have lost all its splendour. It is still charming.

      The former Hilton hotel has become the symbol of the American defeat. This is a major historical site in Havana, even though it is much less interesting for all other reasons. However, its location and infrastructure make it a pleasant and convenient location to discover the city. Furthermore its past gives this hotel a very peculiar atmosphere.
