Declared a National Monument and Memory of the World by UNESCO, the Hotel Nacional de Cuba is synonymous with elegance, refinement and good taste within the hotel industry of the island.

The emblematic building of eclectic style, combined by Art Deco and neo-colonial design, has been in existence for more than eighty years, reasons that make it a symbol of the capital of the largest of the Antilles.

The most famous personalities from Cuba and the world stayed in its rooms, including the novelist Rómulo Gallegos, the politician Winston Churchill, the scientist Alexander Fleming, the actor Marlon Brando and the American writer Ernest Hemingway, a dear friend of the Cuban people.

Eight high storeys, the imposing building sits on a hill in front of the Malecón and has beautiful gardens, from which you can contemplate the spectacular views of Vedado, in Havana city.

Among its proposals, “El Nacional” also has a business center, nine meeting and conference rooms, immediate check-in service, exchange houses and cybercafés, with a distinguished treatment and quality service.

The Hotel Nacional of Cuba, nowadays, is the scene of notable events and welcomes all visitors who come from anywhere to this “enchanted castle”, as it was baptized by the outstanding Cuban intellectual Alejo Carpentier.
