With a stunning ocean front location and very close to Old Havana, Hotel Nacional de Cuba is probably the most iconic hotel in town.

The Nacional is an elegant and classic hotel built on a small hill overlooking the ocean, located in the heart of Havana’s vibey Vedado district, only a short taxi ride from Old Havana. Some dare to compare this hotel to the classic Mount Nelson Hotel in Cape Town or The Millennium Biltmore in Los Angeles. Nacional Hotel oozes character everywhere you look, the building itself is a piece of art: cornisings, sculptures, high ceilings, beautiful tails, elegant chandeliers… There are a total of eight floors and three swimming pools surrounded by landscaped extensive gardens.

Hotel Nacional also features an executive floor with a more intimate feel and a smaller breakfast room for clients wishing a more peaceful breakfast. Rooms on this floor enjoy a fresher interior decor and generous ocean views.

Junior Suites, one and two bedroom Suites with ocean front large terraces also available.

Nacional Hotel also hosts the glamorous Parisien Cabaret, a highly recommended show – as popular as The Tropicana Show – that runs daily and it is for adults only since there is some minor nudity.

Many Hollywood celebrities have chosen to stay at The Nacional Hotel over the years, including Naomi Campbell and Robert De Niro amongst other big names.
