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. We chose from plain eggs or eggs with tomatoes and onions or a ham and cheese sandwich and served with fruit, fruit juice and coffee. An independently owned coffee shop below the hotel was...

Centrally located within the old city. Mosquitos everywhere in the room. I think I murdered 10 upon arrival. They do spray the rooms which leaves a smell that lingers. They also leave the doors open while they do the daily cleaning, which could be the problem, considering the court yard is open air. They let us check in early, which...

This place looks great in photos but the reality is something else. Half of the rooms do not have ANY windows while the other rooms have small balconies with doors but they are blocked by acrylic panels- to keep the air-con in- so you cannot open them. The bathroom was dark and old and the ceiling was covered in mold....

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...

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,...

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...
