The modern and luxurious Hotel Iberostar Parque Central 5* is located in the very heart of the old city, across the street from Havana's Central Park, surrounded by emblematic buildings such as the Gran Teatro de La Habana, the Capitol Building, the Museum of Fine Arts, and within walking distance from The Cathedral, The Malecón (popular seaside promenade), the gorgeous Paseo del Prado (where the cha-cha-cha was born), and from famous bars El Floridita and La Bodeguita del Medio.
The elegant lobby is rich in marble and the decor highlights ocher tones and bottle green colors, blending a contemporary style with colonial hints. The lobby-bar offers a great variety of drinks and snacks and at night live music is often offered.
The mezzanine floor has a stylish tobacco smokers lounge-bar, executive meeting rooms, a business center and the art gallery.
The hotel features two buildings: the colonial (or older) and the modern one, which are connected by an enclosed walkway with attractive decoration.
Both properties are an excellent accommodation option in Havana, although many consider that the colonial or older section has more character.
The rooms are decorated in soft greens and creams with reproductions of antique furniture in the colonial section and modern furniture in the other one. Bathrooms feature beautiful mirrored marble countertops. The bathtub and shower are separate. Some of the rooms do not have a view, be sure to ask if you want a room with a view.
On the roof of the colonial building there is a beautiful swimming pool, a bar, a whirlpool tub, a fitness room and a rooftop grill that serves snacks. The view from here is relaxing and wonderful.
The staff is friendly and always helpful in offering advice and tips about the city.
Breakfast is very good, with a wide choice and served in a nicely decorated ambiance . Lunch by the pool is a very welcome option. Food in the hotel, in general, is very flattered.
If your inttention is to be close to the historic center of the city and enjoy its attractions in a pleasant walk, Iberostar Parque Central is undoubtedly one of the best options in Havana, blending the past and the present with class and refinement.
