Iberostar Parque Central
- What's Included
- All Inclusive Features
In a great central location, this hotel is definitely one of the best in Havana, if not the best. Great service, good food, large rooms and a fabulous roof top pool with unmatched views of Havana. Definitely a recommend for this hotel.
Central location, nice property consists of Colonial Wing & Modern Wing. We had a Colonial Junior suite , spacious & comfortable with nice amenities , facing Central Park. Lobby lounge is always busy with guests & visitors enjoying food, drinks & entertainment. Roof top pool side is popular for panoramic view of the city. Good facilities, friendly staff & nice restaurants ! Colonial Wing has seen the better days with wornout furnitures, time to shape it up as brand new Kempinski hotel is coming up next door very soon. For now Parque Central is the place to be in Havana !
My wife and I wanted to see Havana before inevitable changes occur. We followed established protocols and conducted "Professional Research" while there. The Parque Central is likely the nicest hotel in old Havana, from what we were able to discern. However, there is an original section that is very charming and a newer section that is very contemporary. When booking be sure you know what you are getting. Rooms average about $400 a night, so not AirBNB. We found ourselves in the newer section but there is an underground walkway connection. When not researching, we spent the majority of our time in the central lobby area of the older section. Very nice bar, music playing. Very charming and all the old cars are right out the front door! You can select a car with driver and guide for about $50.00 for a drive around Havana that lasts on average 1.5 hours. We chose a 57 Chrysler Imperial convertible. Tired but charming. Enjoy.....
Spent 3 nights here a couple of weeks ago and had a lovely time. The hotel is well positioned – within walking distances of restaurants, shops and sights. The staff are all lovely – polite, helpful, friendly and professional. We were in a colonial room which is in the main (old) section of the hotel. It was well appointed and clean. Beds were comfortable and toiletries adequate. The lobby was always clean and always with fresh flowers and charming live music (even at breakfast time). Breakfast provided an ample and excellent spread of delicious food – plenty of choice for anybody (from fresh fruit and juices, to salads, vegetables, pickles, cold meats, cheeses, hot options, cereals, breads,cakes and pastries). Internet was included with our stay (but only for a few hours each day, so you needed to keep obtaining new cards and wifi access was patchy – mainly just available in lobby). They have foreign currency exchange in the reception and also a concierge (who can book restaurants etc). The staff at the door were always really friendly and helpful (offering to get cabs as you left and welcoming you back each time you returned). My only complaint was the roof top pool area – yes there was a nice view from up there and a band played daily (although they then tried to sell you their CD!) – however, there were literally only 13 sun loungers for a hotel which has 427 rooms!!! What on earth are they thinking? Each day we had to try and find a chair to sit at where the tables were, which were uncomfortable to sit on and you could not sun bathe at all. This really needs to be addressed. Also service round the pool was poor – each day we found it difficult to find the pool towel man and staff were quite slow in offering drinks etc. Also one day we asked for the menu at 2.15pm to order some food, but when we placed our order they then said that the kitchen was shut now – only salad or pizza available (not sure why they did not tell us when they gave us the menu and not sure why a hotel of that stature and size stops serving lunch so early in the day). Everything else about this hotel is really good – elegant, classy, worthy of its status, but the pool area really lets it down (we specifically chose a hotel with a pool as, although we were sightseeing each day, we wanted to spend a few hours each day relaxing round a pool – which at this hotel is not possible).
Spend 5 nights here and was generally really happy. Great base. Service generally very good. Great to have on site currency exchange service too. We were in the modern wing and had the luxury of a balcony - pity there was only one lounger though. Loved the Mirabana Creole Restaurant - great food and generally excellent free live music although disappointed that had to pay an additional fee to eat from the main menu just because there was a Spanish music group playing - actually felt ripped off. Concierge service excellent in sourcing tickets and negotiating taxi deals. Wifi a bit hopeless though and Business Desk didn't seem to have much interest in acknowledging a wider problem with wifi which many users were experiencing - to be honest the Business Desk were a bit couldn't care less in general. Use EU plug adaptors.
We traveled here with a National Geographic group so everything was chosen for us. We were prepared for roughing it which we did not have to do in Havana at the Parque Central. It is very well located walking distance to many, many things. Only wish we'd have had the time to do more exploring of the neighborhood.
