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...

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...

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...

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...
