Overview Prices starting from £979 per person ↓

Built in the 1930s, this hotel is truly the height of Art Deco elegance and style. Situated comfortably in the leafy Vedado district of downtown Havana, it stands like a jewel by the side of the glittering seashore. But this is no mere seaside resort – the Nacional de Cuba Hotel is just minutes from the centre of the city, making it the perfect base for your Cuban adventure.

  • Historic Tours offered daily Guests can discover the history and significance of this majestic hotel by joining one of the tours. Tours take place each day at 10.00 and 16.00 hours.
  • Cuba's landmark hotel is a national monument This historic hotel, declared a national monument, is located on a promontory in Vedado and enjoys impressive views over the harbour, sea wall and the city. The hotel has welcomed celebrities like frank sinatra, winston churchill and ernest hemingway.
  • Weekly Parisian cabaret and live concerts The weekly Parisian cabaret is a fusion of Indoamerican, african and hispanic cultures that are the basis of today's cuban culture. Guests can also enjoy highlights of the cabaret in the hotel's wonderful gardens. Live cuban music and dance take place on Thursdays and Saturday nights, when the ambassadors of the Buena Vista social club entertain guests with a thrilling performance.

You won’t be the first luminary to enjoy the comforts of this elegant hotel. For many years it has attracted the finest minds in art, science and politics. From Winston Churchill to Ava Gardner and Frank Sinatra, many famous faces have called this hotel’s spacious rooms home (temporarily, at least).

All of this history is embedded in the hotel’s identity. In fact, the guns that made up the old Santa Clara Battery on in exhibition in the garden and this hotel was declared a national monument. With its hilltop location and stunning architecture, it’s easy to see why.

Guests can avail themselves of the beautiful ocean – the beach is just metres away – or take a dip in the turquoise waters of two pools. A massage parlour, sauna, gym, tennis court and beauty salon are also on site, along with a cigar shop. The hotel even has its own museum, where you can learn more about the establishment's fascinating history.

When you get peckish during your stay, you’ll have four fabulous restaurants to try. The Comedor de Aguiar is one of the most exclusive restaurants in all of Havana; let a pianist serenade you with soft melodies as you browse the extensive wine list.

If you fancy dining alfresco, La Barraca serves deliciously authentic Cuban food amongst the lush greenery of the hotel’s gardens. Enjoy some of the best views of Havana in the world as musicians play Cuban music to match your authentic cocktail.

Or, if a more exciting evening is on the cards, the Cabaret Parisien is famous for its colourful shows and is a favourite of visitors from around the world. The Buena Vista Social Club plays here regularly and you won’t want to miss it. If you ever tire of its wonders, you’re just minutes away from Old Havana and downtown Havana’s bright streets and vibrant nights.
