Really cute little hotel in the Heart of the Old City. I had a great room, balcony to the street with an awesome view. I mean, it's an old hotel, but that in itself has it's charms. For me, it was ideal. For someone who want's five star, look elsewhere.

The first rule of providing accommodations is cleanliness! Comfort and location would follow. This hotel certainly lacks in providing a CLEAN room. These rooms should be sanitized after each check out. When we arrived it was obvious that the floor was swept, but that was all. It needed a wet mopping. The shower needed scrubbing, EVEN IN THE CORNERS. There...

The reservation says rooms are 35 sqm (370 sqft), with windows and balcony view. But the room we got was at most 9sqm (<100 sqft), and WITHOUT WINDOWS, let alone a balcony. Tried to switch room, but wasn't able to speak with a manager. Only switched to a bigger room on the 3rd day. They said they were unable to...

I really enjoyed my stay here. As a solo female traveler in a new land safety is my number one issue. I never felt uncomfortable there. I slept amazing all 3 nights. The staff is great! Thank you all for a fantastic stay! I will recommend to everyone!

Very friendly and helpful staff. My room was relatively small but comfortable enough for one person. It had a balcony over looking the street and was able to sleep well and had no problem with street noise. I only found one or two mosquitos which I was able to get rid of. When I arrived, they had me in a...

-The hotel is on a meandering back alley corner, which in fact turned out to be a very central location inside of the walled old tourist town. -It's a well kept clean colonial house with guest rooms surrounding its open-air center garden. A/Cs hanged in BRs work excellent. - Mr. Javier at the front desk is very informative & helpful...

Stayed 3 nights with my college-aged son at Centro Hotel. The room was spacious, cool and quiet. Breakfast was nice and served in a pleasant area.
