Our Opinion

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.

Built in a neo-colonial style this five star hotel has old world charm, and is located right in the heart of "Old Havana", within easy walking distance to nearby attractions. Known as one of the top hotels in Havana, the Parque Central, with its great location, roof top pool and exquisite service, is sure to please.
Location: In the heart of "Old Havana", in front of Parque Central, 45 min from airport. 5 min to Malecon, 120 min to Varadero.

Great service

We chose the Parque Central as a treat at the end of our trip to Cuba. I wasn't feeling well during our stay and all of the staff were very accommodating and helpful, and the hotel doctors provided amazing and personal service.

Great Location

Stayed here for 3 nights before moving on to Varadero. The hotel is in a fantastic location, the modern part where our room was, is next to Sloppy Joe's bar. We stayed in a modern suite, the room was fantastic. Bed was large and very comfortable. Air conditioning works well and is a god send after a day in the heat. We only had breakfast in the hotel which was good with something for everyone. You can eat breakfast in either the colonial or modern part of the hotel regardless of which part your room is in. The bar in the colonial part has a lot of character, drinks were good in both. The rooftop pool on the top of the modern part of the hotel is ideal to cool off in the afternoons, never had problems getting a bed. Waiter service from the bar. The restaurant on the roof serves great Cuban sandwiches. Staff were all very friendly. Would definitely stay here again.

Well What a Hotel. Amazing

We stayed in this hotel for three nights during a 16 day visit to Cuba. The hotel is, Modern, very plush and attractive. Its a very good quality 5 ***** Hotel. The breakfast which was included in the cost of our stay was first class. Served Fresh Salmon, Fresh Lobster, & Smoked Salmon for breakfast. Some much choice to have. Every Nationality catered for. From Hot, cold, buffets style Breakfast. The concierge service is are excellent, it is superb with all of them offering advice for travellers and directions. You can also book trips in the lobby area. All the staff are really Fantastic, and cannot do enough for your where you are there. The rooms are well presented and very nice. There is maid service every day, and the rooms are very well cleaned.The Hotel is set in a really beautiful location of Havana, right opposite the Park, which a meeting place for visitors and locals alike to meet & congregate. The Locals seem to meet here for group discussions and chatter !!! much fun to be heard.There is beautiful roof top bar and you can enjoy the city views. The Hotel offers some good entertainment and the best selection of Cuban cigars! Most of the areas you want to visit are in walking distance - you cannot discover this amazing city in any other way! Please be aware, that this hotel is 5 ***** and the drinks at this Hotel is quite Expensive. But I would really Highly recommend that any body should stay there.

We stayed in this hotel for three nights during a 14 day visit to Cuba. The hotel is very plush and attractive, in old colonial style with a huge lobby area with an attractive mezzanine and services off this lobby. There seem to be security guards with radios everywhere which was a little disconcerting. However, when we moved to Varadero, we found similar people.Beware though as the hotel is split onto two sites, linked with what looked like, a new underground tunnel. The old Colonial part of the hotel contains a large restaurant area where breakfast is served. Just further, attached to this restaurant is a smaller room, more private and much better where breakfast is also served. You can get food in one restaurant and eat in the other. There is 24 hour medical cover, bars and lovely seating areas. The concierge service is not excellent, it is superb with all of them offering advice for travellers and directions. You can also book trips in the lobby area. They are expensive but the Havana Bus Tour is very worthwhile. There is usually high class entertainment in this lobby during the evening. Also, on the mezzanine, you can obtain free wifi cards for internet. Get the lift to the roof top and you will find an excellent swimming pool, sun lounge area and bar. We also loved the Cuban Band playing on this rooftop terrace.We were staying in the new linked hotel, through the tunnel. Here there is a central lobby containing on the ground floor, an excellent concierge service, restaurant, breakfast area, coffee shop and down in the lift you will find a tourist shop, car hire facilities and tour advice. Also, I think, a garage for hire cars. We stayed on floor 4 and the room was excellent with all the usual facilities. Strangely, there was coffee making facilities in the room but with no cups, no coffee nor sugar or milk!!!! Get the lift to the roof area and you will find another roof top swimming pool, with sunbathing area, a restaurant and great views of the city. Our one complaint, which really annoyed me......... we had to pay CUC 2 (about £1.60) for one hour's wifi use and found it impossible to work out how to 'save' unused time. Also it took about 45 minutes to work out how to use this wifi card and so so many people were complaining. These cards are available from a desk on the first floor from a not very friendly lady. Why no charge in one part of the hotel and a charge in another????Around the corner from this hotel is Sloppy Joe's Bar. Here drinks and Tapas are very reasonably priced and the bar is covered in old 1950 photographs of old American Celebrities. Come out of the hotel and turn left and Old Havana is a five minute walk away. Opposite the lobby there are taxis, old American Cars and Horses and Carriages to hire. Be careful with the prices offered. It is not cheap. Across the road Hotel D'Inglesa offers great reasonably priced drinks and snacks and it is lovely sitting there listening to the Cuban music and watching the old cars go past with clouds of diesel fumes. We had a great time in Havana, though extremely expensive and would highly recommend this very central hotel.Finally, the biggest problem and the reader must take this very seriously. The hotel has a money exchange. It is just this. They and most of Havana DO NOT accept debit or credit cards. They want cash. Take Dollars, Euros or Pounds with you to exchange in the hotel. We found, in three days, only two cash machines (the concierge will tell you where they are), about five minutes walk away and as we were there over the weekend, by Sunday morning the cash machines had run out of money. Strangely, when we got to Varadero, there was much more use of credit/debit cards.
