It is ok Hotel to stay in the middle of the town , The property is quite old . The rooms are ok to spend your days . The wifi is available only at the reception . The resturant is just manageable not much choices . The staff tries to help to guest to their maximum limit .

The price is definitely the best you will find in Bangui. The rooms are comfortable once you find the right one with everything working. The staff are pleasant and helpful and the breakfast acceptable. Fairly clean and a swimming pool that is well looked after. Central and close to restaurants and bars.

I have stayed in the hotel perhaps half a dozen times or more, for short and long stays. I always end up with a cold and once caught bronchitis following my time at the Hotel du Centre. I assume the black mold in all the bathrooms, the dampness of the carpets, and the sketchy air conditioners may be related. But... More

This hotel was built in the 1950s and looks like it. The rooms are reasonably nice with a/c and hot water in the bathroom for most people. Unlike some of the earlier reviews we had no power cuts at all. The internet was slow but reasonable for CAR. Also unlike earlier reviews, the sheets were clean. The whole place needs... More

Let's face it, unless you spend 100s of dollars a night, you won't get a 5 star hotel in Bangui. So if you've only want to spend about 70$ a night, this is a good place to stay. It has internet, power, running (hot) water and its reasonably clean. Be sure to get a room on the first floor, as... More

Here, you have to first understand that your other choices in Bangui are extremely limited and the hotel that is better than this one is only marginally so. Keeping this in the back of your mind you can expect a decent stay at Hotel du Centre. The swimming pool is cleaned and functional and can help you be forgiving of... More

Apart from the Ledger hotel, this one is the only hotel where you could meet international standards. This said; don’t expect much except for the price, with rooms ranging between 48.000 and 41.000 Francs CEFA.(95 – 81 USD), breakfast not included. For this price, one would expect a clean bedroom, with clean linen, and so on. Well, when I opened... More

I dont have a lot of experience staying in hotels in third world countries. We had four people in our group and all of us had gripes about the cleanliness of the rooms. I've slept in some dirty places and this is the second worst place I've stayed (a close second to my brother's band's loft in New York City).... More

This must have once been quite a good hotel but its now degraded. Unfortunately while some of the appearances still hint to the good times, the services you actually need are absent or below par. Thus the room are relatively large but not very clean. The TVs a joke and internet absent. There is a pleasant looking pool with seating... More
