Stayed here twice. Best hotel we stayed in in Cuba. Attractive lobby area, with large bar. Excellent breakfast, and evening restaurant. Attractive roof top pool, with bar, and meal facilities. Decent rooms; cheap toiletries. And good location,overlooking Parque Central. What can you do, that after running a tab, the surly hotel checkout tells you -credit cards only. Not us, of course, government policy. What can you do ,when you point out that, at 10 pm, the night before, hotel staff happily received pesos for a big bar bill; yet a second bill, signed for, must be paid by cc. The obnoxious front desk managers, and staff, repeatedly insisted on this cc foreign currency policy, despite 1 0 of us stating that the hotel happily accepted pesos from us at the pool, at the bars, and in the restaurant. We realise this review is unusual, but the deeply unpleasant receptionists undid all the plaudits the hotel deserves. Read less

Dear Iberostart Team, We had a pleasure to stay into your Hotel Parque Central in Havana. After two weeks travelling around Cuba it was like a paradise arriving here. Everything works perfect and all the process are very good organize (check in, rooms, retaurants...) Besides the perfect organization what impressed me most was the friendliness of all employee here, for example Mrs. Consuelo (Pr. Manager). She is extreme costumer oriented, always trying to resolve all the problem of the client, and making the impossible possible, walking around constantly and addressing the clients if they need help before even the client needs to go to the reception (Consuelo is faster) and all these in the very natural cuban authentic atmosphere. In every seconds we had the feeleing to be welcome like in a family not like in other Hotels were you know that the employees are just friendly to you because they want your money. I have been to other 5 Start Hotels in Cuba but for me stay in this Hotel was a nicest. thank you and see you soon Read less
