Hotel Nacional de Cuba

Top choice hotel in Vedado
Image by

The icing on the cake of Cuban hotels and a flagship of the government-run Gran Caribe chain, the neoclassical/neocolonial/art deco (call it eclectic) Hotel Nacional is as much a city monument as an international accommodation option. Even if you don't stay here, find time to sip at least one minty mojito in the exquisite oceanside bar.

Steeped in history and furnished with rooms that have plaques advertising details of illustrious past occupants, the towering Havana landmark sports two swimming pools, a sweeping manicured lawn, a couple of lavish restaurants and its own top-class cabaret, the Parisién. While the rooms might lack some of the gadgets of deluxe Varadero, the ostentatious communal areas and the ghosts of Winston Churchill, Frank Sinatra, Lucky Luciano and Errol Flynn that haunt the Moorish lobby make for a fascinating and unforgettable experience.
