Perfect location! Very old style hotel. Looks like at the time of the revolution, but for this much money what we expect?! Ok for 1night, but not relaxing at all! Breakfast voucher valid for the Patsy Restaurant next door with the best breakfast I had in Guatemala!

Unfortunately me and my partner had a very average stay here. The staff came off very rude and we're super unhelpful. As English speaking tourists, this area was quite intimidating and we weren't very comfortable. The rooms were very basic, no fans, no air flow, cockroaches were found daily, beds were fairly rock hard, never had our room cleaned and basically no information provided what so ever. We even had a translator on our phone we used and they didn't even want to try and use that for help. Our last morning the water was turned off so was the vending machine(only fresh water accessible at certain hours of the morning/night). If you are an English speaking tourist I wouldn't recommend.

I spent the Holy Week this year in Guatemala. An experience of a life time. By recommendation of Guatemalan friends I booked the Centenario hotel for five nights. My first impression was not good. It says 3 stars, but I will give the most 2 stars. The rooms are simple, but clean and comfortable, as well as the beds. The location is excellent for what I went there for: to admire the magnificent display of processions and culture. The hotel is the only one at the main square, where all the activities take place. Next to the hotel there is a restaurant, very popular with local people. Great food and an excellent breakfast (included in the price of the hotel). If you do care about a simple accommodation, this hotel will satisfy you. I am a world traveler and, at the beginning I was a little disappointed, but, the location, the breakfast and price compensated. Next year I will be back to Guatemala for the Holy Week and I will stay in the same hotel. Last but not least, the kindness of the workers are outstanding. I felt like home. The price? You will be surprised! I even felt guilty for paying $98.00 for five nights including breakfast. Just unbelievable. Simple hotel, great location, wonderful people and an unbeatable price.

I stayed in Hotel Centenario for about a week. The hotel is very well located and offers nice beds for what you pay. The bathrooms need some work, and adding wifi service to the rooms would be nice (wifi available in the lobby only). They give you free breakfast at a restaurant located next to the hotel (3 choices available). Major historic sites are located within walking distance from the hotel, and if you need to move to other places, cabs are easy to find. The host helped us a lot. He gave us suggestion about places to visit and where to buy things. Overall, I would recommend the hotel if you plan to visit the nearby sites and do not plan on spending a lot of time in the hotel, and do not want to spend too much money.

I would not stay again not recommend it. Needs a major renovation especially the bathroom. The tub was new but toilet, floor, doors and sink were so old and dirty I switched hotels to have a shower. The bed was so hard it took me hours to fall asleep. They did have free breakfast but that would not get me there again. I was happy to leave that room.
