We booked and prepaid our stay at Hotel Centrum months earlier, but on arrival were told they were overbooked and we would have to go to their sister hotel. This was extremely inconvenient as we had booked that hotel because our tour began there the next day. In compensation we were offered a meal at the Hotel Centrum and taxi fares to and from the new hotel. The receptionist tried very hard to compensate and was very pleasant, but admitted that this was not an unusual occurrence. This was confirmed by the new hotel and by the taxi driver. When we did stay there, the next day, we found the hotel rooms were clean but very small, but the location was great as it is very central to the main town. All up, I would not recommend this hotel as you just can't be sure your booking, even when prepaid, will be honoured.
