Nigel's Special Hotels
One of Cuba’s most iconic hotels, Nacional de Cuba combines the features of an old Las Vegas Strip hotel with a picturesque Havana location, & will especially appeal if you enjoy spectacular shows, classic cars or history.

Hotel Nacional de Cuba has hosted a range of famous visitors, particularly screen idols from Hollywood’s golden years, & the hotel has preserved several historical rooms which can be viewed on free guest tours. Nacional de Cuba is an elegant hotel from a different age & is itself a popular tourist excursion, with beautiful features & artwork as well as memorabilia from famous guests. Classic car lovers will especially enjoy Nacional de Cuba as they can see vintage American vehicles every day on its large, looping driveway & there are shows every Saturday.

The grounds & terrace at Hotel Nacional are beautiful places to relax & sample the hotel’s signature pina coladas & mojitos, while enjoying views of the sea & Old Havana. There is a great choice of food & inexpensive drink at Nacional de Cuba with 4 bars, a buffet restaurant, 2 a la carte restaurants & a snack bar. One of the highlights of any stay is the Parisian nightclub with its spectacular floor show, while there is also live music in the lobby veranda every night. The hotel can get busy with tour groups & service standards can dip at times, with the buffet restaurant often busy at breakfast, so Nacional de Cuba hotel may not suit anyone seeking peace & quiet.

Nacional de Cuba is a famous, landmark hotel that is admittedly starting to show its age. But if you like great entertainment, beautiful views & the idea of strolling in the same beautifully kept gardens once enjoyed by Hollywood royalty, you should try this hotel.

Every Saturday from 4pm till 8pm the vintage car and bike club, Amigos de Fangio, show-off their treasures, below the Hotel Nacional.

More info on the history of the hotel can be found at hotel nacional cuba .com

Between 1st November 2015 and 30th April 2016, Hotel Nacional will face major renovations works, which will cause the closure of standard and executive rooms.

The Grand Dame of 5* hotels in Vedado & all of Havana for that matter also. Set in an enormous park facing the sea, with outdoors swimming pool & spa, and a large outdoor bar area. <br>Very impressive palms lined drive & entrance hall, when you arrive to the hotel. Nevertheless, the hotel has seen better days as it is a bit shabby nowadays, and all the repair & maintenance are of low quality.<br>Recommended are the Executive floors 6 & 8, which are a bit more expansive but gets a VIP service, antique decor rooms, WIFI, spacial breakfast and an exclusive reception on the 6th floor. Well worth the extra pennies.<br>However, all the hotel food outlets are very bad quality & high price, better go outside to eat.<br>

Guide to Vedado
Vedado's heart is along and around La Rampa. This is where Avenida 23 meets the coastal road, the Malecon, and you will find the rather impressive Hotel Nacional de Cuba.

Infront of the Hotel Nacional is La Piragua, "The Dugout", where each Saturday afternoon various car and motorcycle club piston heads show-off their gleaming chrome classics.



On La Rampa itself you will find the Cubana (airline) main office, many shops, markets, hotels, restaurants and nightclubs.

Directly east on Calle San Miguel between calles Ronda and Mazon is the fine Museo Napoleonico, this mansion is house of a remarkable collection of Napoleonic memorabilia.

Other notable sights are the Copelia, Hotel Habana Libre

Vedado's top sight is perhaps the Cementerio de Cristobal Colon.
