Hotel Iberostar Parque Central is a luxury 5-star hotel within touching distance of the old town. Surrounded by numerous famous buildings, such as the Capitolio, The Garcia Lorca Theatre and the Museum of Modern Arts. Inside, the hotel is very welcoming, professional and comfortable and combines the elegance of colonial style with modern services (including the best wi-fi in town). It is strongly favored by repeat business visitors to Havana.
Although the fancy lobby and classily furnished rooms may lack the historical riches of the Habaguanex establishments, the ambience here is far from antiseptic.
There’s a small but excellent gym and the rooftop pool, which has fabulous views of the city, is a blessing during the hotter months, when swifts swoop down to drink the water as you swim and sup a fresh frozen daiquiri.
In 2009 the Parque Central opened an even swankier annex across Calle Virtudes, connected to the rest of the hotel by means of an underground tunnel. As well as state-of-the-art rooms, the addition include its own luxurious restaurant, cafe and reception area.
