Hotel Nacional Luxury Calles 0 & 21, Vedado
Considered Havana's flagship hotel, although rooms at this 1930s grand dame are overpriced and shabby (a recent refurbishing seems half-hearted), and the restaurant disappoints. Excellent cabaret, and the garden terrace is the place to relax with a cigar and rum cocktail.
