The Cuban capital, one of the main destinations in the Island’s fast-growing leisure industry, benefits from the construction of many hotels to meet the increasing demand from the tourism sector.

Several cultural offers, tours of places of historic interest and even a pleasant swim in the warm and crystal-clear waters of the eastern Havana beaches provide a one-of-a-kind tourist offer in the panorama of the largest Antillean Island.

The former Village of San Cristobal de La Habana is one of the best exponents of Spanish-colonial architecture in Cuba, marked by a notoriety that dates to the 16th century, with very peculiar characteristics despite a strong Spanish influence.

One of the newest options in the Cuban capital is the Parque Central Hotel, built in a privileged area in Havana’s historic heart, where it benefits from its closeness to other several attractions.

The hotel is surrounded by many famous buildings, including the Capitol and the well-known Garca Lorca Theater, where major ballet performances are staged.

Most of the hotel’s 279 rooms overlook the Parque Central (Central Park) and the historic Prado Promenade, as well as other buildings that are faithful exponents of the baroque style in architecture.

The structure of the Parque Central Hotel combines the elegance of the Spanish-colonial style with modern facilities and services that characterize today’s leisure industry.

The Greek-classic swimming pool, which overlooks the Caribbean and Old Havana, declared World Heritage by the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO), is on the roof and has a tropical garden and an outdoors restaurant providing a wide range of gastronomic offers.

The establishment, which is run by the Spanish group NH Hoteles, is an excellent spot for business tourism, since it has all facilities necessary for conferences, meetings or incentive trips.

Two 60-seat multifunctional conference halls are complemented by two meeting halls for 16 people each, and three small meeting rooms, which can sit up to eight people each.

A business center, technological facilities and a trained staff are available for those who choose the Parque Central Hotel to close business deals.

The hotel is the perfect place for celebrations, since all kinds of special events are held in a 260-seat dinning hall for banquets, seminars, cocktail parties and receptions.

All these opportunities turn the Parque Central Hotel in an ideal place to combine the attractions of modern tourism with the beauty of a city full of history and centuries-old customs.
