Hotel Parque Central is one of the best known hotels in Cuba. As the name implies, the hotel is located in front of Central Park, between Old Havana and Centro Havana, and a few minutes’ walk to Malecon on the coast. If you’re wondering which hotel is right for you, we definitely recommend this 5-star hotel.
The lobby is quite spacious and gorgeous with retains the colonial atmosphere of the Spanish era. In the sofa space at the main hall has piano placed where you can listen to live piano music in special occasions such as Christmas season.
Next to it is a cafe / bar, where you can also listen to live music having Cuban Coffee or Rum. Live Cuban music is played every day, so it’s a good idea to take a break from walking outside in the hottest weather to refresh and enjoy the music, or even you may try Cuban Cigar. In addition, there is a large staircase in the center of the cafeteria, reminiscent of one scene from the movie Titanic.
And the terrace pool with a wonderful view is a place you definitely want to see. The wide view allows you to see Old Havana to Centro Havana and of course, the symbol of the city “Capitol.”
The Parque Central Hotel building is divided into two parts: colonial and modern. The exterior is two completely different buildings, with a road in between, but from inside 2 buildings are connected through the basement, so you can come and go without going outside.
The hotel staffs are very friendly and will tell you anything you are wondering, so if you have any problems, don’t hesitate to ask.
For those who prefer to stay at hotels than casa particulars, the Hotel Parque Central is recommended!!
