Great place for the money. Staff is great. Pool is great. This place is awesome. The only thing to make this place better would be to have fans in each room. The AC works but a fan would be great. They even traded out our mattress for a softer one. The food is great also. Very very clean and well... More

Spent two nights at Hotel Centro & very pleased with the choice. Excellent service from airport pick-up & check-in on. We arrived early (9 am) & sprung for the early check-in (600 pesos). Very attentive staff helped with restaurant reservations & trike taxis. Booked nighttime fire-fly tour through the hotel (worthwhile if looking for something to do one night) and... More

My family and I were planning on staying in Hotel Centro but we changed out minds as we couldn't get a decent reply to our inquiries via email! The hotel's constantly changing shifts of employees makes it difficult to maintain good lines of communication! If you have other options for your stay in Palawan, it's best to explore those instead... More

The hotel interiors are above average since it was just a new hotel during our stay. Services are very good. They are very warm and attentive. The pool is okay since I think you would prefer to stay on the beach in Palawan. Great base hotel going Honday Bay and Underground River Tours. The hotel also organize these tours. Rooms... More

Quoting the tour guide, this is the safest hotel in town - being just blocks away from the town hospital. The hotel layout is good, and the ground floor interiors are well designed, and the staff are friendly. The corridor leading to our rooms needs some more illumination, but the rooms are adequate. I would recommend to the hotel, to... More
