IBEROSTAR Parque Central
Ranked #1 of 81 Hotels in Havana
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 2 August 2014

Just got back from a holiday in Cuba,3 nights in Havana and 11 nights in Varadero.The Parque Central hotel was beautiful and was in a a prime location in Havana. It was a 5 star rating with a colonial feel and friendly staff welcoming you as soon as you walk through the lobby which was air conditioned. It had a roof top pool which was fantastic overlooking the beautiful sights of Havana. The hotel was a great location for all the sights to visit and also the Cuban bars Sloppy Joes and LA Floridita ( Hemingway)which I would recommend. Tropicana Club was fantastic and should definitely visit, but make sure your taxi is booked at 1pm not 12pm as you will miss the last hour of the show where you get up dance with the locals. Loved Havana.

I stayed at this hotel for around 5 nights during the month of July 2014. I stayed at a suite and a junior suite. The rooms were very big and modern. The swimming pool on the terrace is amazing. The main halls are very beautiful. Breakfast is very good. Staff overall is very nice.
So what is the problem? The hotel is run as if it were a communist state enterprise:
-- Waiters (including the head of waiters) keep chatting while people have to wait long to get served coffee.
-- The attention of reception depends very much of the person in charge.
-- The rooms are not cleaned much.
-- Rooms are not sufficiently supplied with soaps and other toiletries. In fact, for some reason the junior suite was supplied with more toiletries and was better equipped than the larger suite.
-- Reception will rarely pass through calls and they did not seem to care much.
-- When I asked the public relations person of the hotel a question, she did not bother to lift her eyes from the computer. (I never thought that the role of a public relations is to be hidden behind a computer in an office)

The large groups (from tour operators) also seem to reduce significantly the standards of the hotel. The hotel's personnel is just not prepared to keep up standards.

Overall, I enyojed my stay at this hotel. However, the hotel is supposed to be a five star iberostar hotel (and the prices reflect it) and the fact that it is in Cuba is no excuse. Some proper training of staff would make a very big difference.

Tip: Apparently, many people prefer to stay in the older, more impressive building. I stayed in the new one and I can say that it is also very nice and its swimming pool on the roof is impressive.

Room Tip: choose upper floors.

We started our travels around Cuba here, it's a lovely hotel with a great buzz and atmosphere, always music in the bar and the cocktails we lush. Choice of food for breakfast was brilliant and there was even champagne to start the day.
There is a rooftop pool which over lools the park one side and sea views to the other.
Would definitely go back :)

Stayed: May 2014, travelled with family

Entering the lobby in the colonial building of Parque Central gives a touch of century old atmosphere, very sympathetic. There is adjacent the new building, also with a pool on the roof. Unfortunately the rooms do not stand the five stars in this wing where I stayed one night, four in the colonial. The roof pool on the colonial is as one can expect, surrounded with palm trees, lounge chairs, towels and bar with service.
Additionally the hotel is in the Havana Viejo, Old Town which is pleasant if one likes to take some stroll in it.
WiFi costs 8 CUC/hr, approx. 6 EUR or 8 USD..

Room Tip: Rooms in the colonial building.

Six years ago, we visited Cuba for the first time and loved Parque Central. The kids loved the rooftop pool and jacuzzi with the swallows swooping in over the water.
Great rooms, good food and fantastic location.
Looking forward to coming back in August to see what's changed in Habana and the Parque Central.

we stayed at Parque Central for 4 nights before going on to Varadero for 10 nights. The staff at the hotel were all very friendly and helpful. We stayed in the Colonial side and it was amazing . The rooms were very big and kept clean with bed being changed daily. We ate 2 nights in the mediteranian reataurant and would highly reccomend it.I would definately return to this hotel if i return to Havanna

We booked a double room a couple of days before our stay whilst we were already in Havana. The staff were all extremely helpful, polite, friendly and spoke excellent English. The room was beautiful with an amazing bathroom, a very comfortable bed and excellent air conditioning (a necessity in Havana).

The pool on the top floor was an excellent spot to soak up the rays and have a swim with live music performances and good food and cocktails (if expensive by Cuban standards) brought to you by the waiters.

The breakfast buffet had a bewildering range of foods but was of a decent standard. Probably the best hotel breakfast we had there.

Maybe they could have done more to move along the touts who hang around outside. The bed was made from two beds joined together so had a gap down the middle but not too bad.

Great hotel, great atmosphere, friendly and polite staff.

Room Tip: Junior Suite rooms are just a larger double room with two double beds from my experience.
