There are several restaurants in the hotel. Can be packaged with the Cabaret Parisian Show with your choice of the restaurant, an excellent deal.

We found the service in this beautiful hotel very ordinary to say the least. One staff member was very helpful but once seated the rest of the staff were not interested maybe you should eat downstair it will be quicker....really

The Hotel Nacional de Cuba is more than a hotel, it's an experience, where history comes to life and stories unfold. Walking through the door you are transported in time, 1930, the home of the Buena Vista Social Club you cann still see the Legends here. If you are able we recommend that your stay includes a Saturday night as there is a variety of live music throughout the hotel, We loved lounging on the veranda listening to some great music, dancing in the courtyard under the stars. There is a wonderful restaurant the Barbacoa in the courtyard and beautiful gardens overlooking the Malecon. Rain or shine its a great place to stay. Our room was next to Walt Disney's room. The rooms are comfortable and include some original bathroom fixtures, everything works well and there is lots of hot water which we appreciated. We stayed 6 days and loved it. The classic Restaurant has the original 1930 stage. On Saturday nights you can hear Cuba's 4 very talented young Tenors and a Contra Alto sing beautiful arias. The restaurant has the most amazing seafood bisque and lobster prepared with perfection. The hotel is well situated in Vedado neighbourhood, there are many great restaurants and hotels staff are more than happy to make a recommendation, we very much enjoyed Cafe Laurent and there are several excellent jazz clubs nearby. To get to old Havana its a short taxi ride, we recommend a coco-taxi. The Hotel has a beautiful pool which is great as it can be very hot in Havana. The property is very well maintained. The only down side for us was checking out, there was only one counter and a long line up, but the concierge was excellent getting us a beautiful classic car to the airport, This was not our first time to Havana but definitely this Hotel gave us a unique experience of Havana, we loved our stay the music and the relaxed quiet atmosphere. We had a great time and hope you do too.

What a wonderful hotel that takes you back in time! This place was built in 1930 and you can just feel all the history when you walk into this wonderful lobby. Check out the bar with pictures of all the celebrities that have visited. Also there is a great Casa de Habano cigar story in the basement. Get a cigar and a nice drink and head out to the veranda to enjoy and just watch the world go by in Havana! A wonderful spot for sure!!

Hotel is located next to Malecon, landmark of Havana. Neighborhood is very nice. Hotel itself is a living legend with many stories associated with the history of Country. Don't miss the free Hotel tour which happens every morning. It comes with some perks, a view of Havana and Malecon from the top, tour of cold war era tunnel. Breakfast spread is decent, with live music. Most important, WiFi is free, which is a big perk while in Cuba.
