We spent 3 nights here as the first part of our two city visit and found that the hotel was perfectly located within walking distance of several sights to be seen in Havana. We stayed in the modern section of the hotel which is connected to the colonial section via an underground walkway. Both sections are in excellent condition. Our room was clean and tidy, the staff friendly. The roof top pools in both sections are very nice. If you want to use the pool in the modern section get there early as there isn't a lot of loungers available. The all inclusive breakfast has lots to choose from although some items I wouldn't be having for breakfast. I would definitely stay here again. Read less

We visited Havana as part 1 of a 2 part holiday (we moved on to Varadero after) and Parque Central was the perfect hotel for exploring this magnificent city. Truthfully we hadn’t heightened our expectations because of things we had read but we couldn’t have been more wrong. The hotel itself is beautiful and everything we could have asked for! There are two parts to the hotel (we stayed in the colonial part not the modern part) but it’s all very easy to navigate with both sections having glorious roof top pools and bars. The drinks are top notch! The hotel itself is all very clean, tidy and every member of staff is professional and friendly. The concierge desk was very accommodating! Our room was beautiful with a nice balcony view. There are a number of restaurants in the hotel. We had breakfast booked which was a great buffet with everything you could ask for and we ate one night in the Mediterranean restaurant in the modern hotel (amazing paella!). The hotel also organise evening entertainment and we went up one night to see the most amazing interactive salsa show on the roof, a big thank you to the salsa group for a great night. It’s ideally located for old Havana but I’d definitely recommend organising a tour. We did one which takes you on a 1 hour classic car tour and then your tour guide does a personalised walking tour for as long as you’d like. Now real talk. This is a 5 star hotel but it’s Cuban five star. The hotel itself is perfect but if you’re expecting the same furnishing and quality as some western or Mediterranean five stars you will be disappointed. That being said it’s one of the most beautiful hotels I’ve stayed in to date and would recommend it to anyone. Thank you Iberostar Parque Central. Read less

Service was great and also live music evening entertainment. The breakfast was fab. We had a snack in the lounge and by the pool and we can recommend the burger! Evening meal wasn’t the best food but it is Cuba. However not too far to go to get a good meal in a locale. Read less

The location was perfect for everything we wanted to do. The hotel is actually spread over two buildings: the colonial and the modern side. The modern side has amazing views of the Capitol building the pool. It also has the better bar/restaurant: Terraza Mirabana. The staff was amazingly kind and helpful. Would recommend this over an inclusive.

An excellent hotel - very well maintained, great friendly staff and excellent rooms. nice bars, shops etc. Reception & Concierge both incredibly helpful. The main restaurant was OK - food was good (not great) and the main foyer area also produced OK food. Well recommended - and a great location!
