Framed by majestic-looking early 19th-century buildings, this park (also known as Parque José Martí) dates back to 1903. It is a large park surrounded by some of Old Havana's finest restaurants and hotels, including the hotels Sevilla, Plaza and Inglaterra. There are many exotic trees and royal palms in a well-landscaped garden environment. Well lit and quite safe, many people come to sit and relax with friends, while enjoying a drink and listening to the music that drifts over from the local clubs and nearby theater.
The best part of his hotel (aside from the exquisite lobby, rooftop pool, and large rooms) is that it's located in Viejo Havana, right where you want to be! I would never consider staying anyplace else in Havana!
Parque Central Hotel in Old Havana is one of the best hotels in Cuba and definitely the best in Havana if you plan to do mostly walking touring. Service is attentive, food is delicious, rooms have great views, the rooftop pool and cafe are wonderful, the gym is modern, and location, location, location! When you can walk out the door and start walking through the safe, rich, historical neighbourhoods and be a block or two from museums, art galleries, theatres, restaurants, cafes, and the Old Town, and close to the people too, thats great! And when you are tired you can relax in 5 star luxury overlooking gorgeous views of this historical city on the patio beside the rooftop pool and cafe, rooms are very modern, food is tasty and continental, lobby is lively with music, atmosphere is colonial with modern comforts. Myself and my clients have stayed here with great satisfaction over the years! I highly recommend it always for guests seeking true comfort of a full service hotel and great location if they plan to do alot of exploring on foot! My other 5 star favourite hotel is the grand, historical, Hotel Nacional, however you must always take a taxi to the Old Town, but it has beautiful gardens overlooking the sea.
