Really enjoyed the 3 nights we used the Parque Central as a base to explore old Havana. Great location, excellent concierge service, good breakfast, good size room in older part of hotel, nice roof... Read more top terrace & pool with live music and views over Havana. You have to pay for wi-fi & the queue for the money exchange could be quite long. You need cash rather than credit cards in Havana. Recommended and we will be back. Read less

When you walk into this hotel it's like an oasis of calm after the hustle and bustle of the city. The lobby area is just lovely, plenty of seating, music every evening and there is an extra quiet... Read more lounge to the rear. We stayed in the old part but the new extension is 30 seconds away, linked via an underground walkway. Checking in was straightforward. The room was large, clean and comfortable but the hotel does not offer tea/coffee as standard in the room which is a minus. There is a coffee machine but you have to ask and pay for supplies. The mini bar was well stocked and I didn't think it was over priced compared to other hotels I've stayed in on my travels. The buffet breakfast has a huge choice and if you can't find something to please you then you are super fussy. You can use the facilities in both sides of the hotel, both rooftop pool areas are lovely, towels are provided and the snack food at both sides good. Fantastic views. Parque Central is well located and you can walk to almost everywhere that you'd like to visit. The doormen were very helpful, pointing us in the right direction on our first outing - in fact - all the staff are extremely friendly and will happily chat for a minute or two when they have time. WiFi is charged extra 8 CUC per hour but you must remember to log off or your hour drains away. Remember, you are in Cuba and resources for everything, including food are limited so choices are often restricted and big hotels are no different. There are some areas that need a little attention decor wise but I have no complaints about this hotel and would recommend it. Read less
We stayed here for three nights in late November in the old part on the third floor - it was everything you could ask for. Reception was quick and professional and our room spacious and clean - the... Read more bed was 8' wide and very comfortable!!. Breakfast was buffet and I defy anyone not to find something they liked - fruits, cooked meats, cooked breakfast etc. The two roof top pools were clean with sun loungers though more loungers in the newer part of the hotel and the views over Havana were good. Being in the centre of old Havana this is an excellent hotel and I'd stay here again. Read less
We had a 3 night stay in The Iberostar before going onto the coast & it was very enjoyable. Very central for sight seeing by foot or by car etc. I would say that the buffet breakfast was one of the... Read more best I have seen & tasted. Roof top pool great place to relax.
