The Iberostar Parque Central, built in tune with its surroundings in the heart of the old quarter, combines the elegance of Spanish colonial style with modern services and facilities – not necessarily a given in Havana.
The 278 comfortable rooms have an elegant ambiance, and we recommend the Superior rooms, which are bigger, have a sitting area and a better view. There is a large Greek-style swimming pool, a Jacuzzi, snack bar and gym on the top floor of the hotel with splendid views across Havana. The hotel has an á-la-carte as well as a gourmet restaurant, an open lounge lobby bar, and a small shopping arcade.
The hotel is located - appropriately enough - on Parque Central, near the Capitol and theater Garcia Lorca, famous for its excellent ballet. Within walking distance are the cathedral of Havana, the Plaza de Armas, shops, museums and much more.
Why we love it
Best of all is one of the rooms overlooking the park, most of which have balconies.
