We were guests at the Centrum for five nights in June. Although the rooms are a bit on the small side and lack any flat surfaces suitable for placing luggage, the beds are comfortable, and the bathroom well stocked with toiletries. Housekeeping staff kept our room immaculate. The only complaints we have is that the room got very warm and the window opened only a little bit. A fan would have been helpful. Also, we were unable to make calls from our room using a calling card. Instead we walked to a hostel a few blocks away to make our calls. The breakfast buffet doesn't begin until 7 am. The selection of food wasgood, but I would have liked a bit more fresh fruit and hotter water for tea! The bacon was always crispy and the dining room staff very cheerful. Since the dining room is a bit small, if you have places to go in the morning, get there a bit before 7:00! Because the two small chairs in our room were occupied with our bags we often sat in the comfortable lounge area on the second floor to read. Two computers were available on the first floor for checking email and printing boarding passes. The front desk staff was pleasant, but not everyone was able to answer our questions. A tourist information center is just doors away, as is a small market. The harbour area, banks, movies, grocery stores, museums, and a wide variety of excellent restaurants are all nearby. This really is a great location for exploring the city!!!
