I really feel sorry for writing bad reviews when the hotel staff is friendly. But it's difficult to write a good review in this case: there are no windows in the rooms! Our first night at the hotel was in room 215, which we asked to change because of noise of breakfast area. The second and third nights were in... More

The location of this hotel is excellent. It is also very quiet, except during working hours because the courtyard is being renovated. The room was clean but had no window, was somewhat small, and had a little bit of mold on the ceiling. Breakfast was OK, though I neglected to put on repellent and got about a dozen mosquito bites,... More

This hotel is in a great location within the walled city. It also has some very competitive rates and a nice free breakfast. Unfortunately, my room needed some basic upkeep and mold control in the bathroom. I also wish I would have purchased a room with a window. Mine did not have one and it started feeling claustrophobic after a... More

We stayed at Centro Hotel for 4 nights. It is the best location you can find! It is right in the walled city next to many of the boutique hotels which cost 5x the price. We paid $70 USD per night. The hotel is about a 15 minute taxi ride from the airport. We paid $6USD to get there. Once... More

This is a very nice hotel and the management is very friendly and helpful. I had thought I booked 2 beds in our room but mistakenly booked only 1 a few months back. The manager accommodated us by moving an extra bed in our room. Not too many hotels would go out of their way like that. After a 5... More

Ideal location right in the centre of old town, with a cool coffee shop at the main floor entrance! Up the grand staircase to reception and rooms are located around the perimeter of the courtyard, with lovely palm trees and gardens softening the look. Very friend staff, and very helpful senior at the front desk....always full of information, tour connections... More

We were a bit puzzled by the TripAdvisor scores for this hotel. We stayed there for Christmas. We chose it because we were looking for an historic property in the Old town that didn't cost a fortune at such a busy time. Most of the historic properties are beautiful but pretty expensive. We found the Centro was exactly what we... More

The centro hotel is really right in the center for the old town, conveniently located for everything. It is very elegant with an indoor patio and old wooden tiles. First I stayed in room nr 219 which has no window and is where the breakfast is served. They start early around 6am and due to light sleep I asked for... More
