“Worst Hotel I have EVER stayed in !!”
Reviewed 9 October 2013

I stayed at the Grand Central Hotel Sep 20th 2013. First of all they ripped me off on the price -- My Priceline receipt stated 60.00 and of course when I go to the bullet proof thick Plexiglas the women just stared at me and said that will be 80.00. When I showed her the receipt she just smiled and said "taxes" . Really? So I did not protest - just figured rip off - OK . I go to my room. and the carpet looks like someone changed an engine on it . The bed spread was torn in several places , the AC unit had masking tape (not even duck tape) around it and I could see that it was just sitting in a concrete hole in the wall, same with bathroom window. There was some kind of biting bug but they seemed to be confined to the carpet. The AC did work and I was exhausted so I stayed.. I got the hotel originally because it was close enough to the boat I was to take the next day to go diving to walk it. I have traveled super budget before all over the world but this hotel was scary and a rip off . DO NOT stay here - they should be condemned and the building destroyed and the rip off owners should be ashamed of themselves....

Room Tip: They are rip of liars and I would not suggest any room here.

If you want to go for cheap, still choose somewhere else this is not the place. Firstly the service is horrible, there was no hot water, literally no outlets in the room (the lamp was built in by wire) the beds were hard as rocks and the covers felt like you were shaving! the closet was broken and so was the stairs, the door would not shout without extreme force applied and the key halfway didnt work. You have to put a deposit down for the tv remote , and the a/c well lets just forget that working right so like i said choose another hotel there is a reason this one is so cheap. RUN!! From it RUN

I paid just over $70 US for a room for a night, by far the cheapest place on the Island to stay and in a very central location.

However, the bullet proof glass on reception resembles a prison and there are no communal arears. It is a place you go just to sleep not to enjoy the environment (pretty much like Nassau itself!). This is basic but cheap. They usually always have spare rooms, so you can just pitch up and see, if you dont like it leave.

i came across this hotel on the internet and even a seasoned traveller like me thought it looked just fine for an overnight stay on my way to harbour island. my 15 yrs old daughter accompanied me. it is located on charlotte st. just off the main shopping area of bay street.
the hairs on the back of my neck stood on end on entering the building,i was,nt sure which was worse...the smell or the bulletproof panel at the reception desk which had a slit for credit cards. against my better judgement i went up in the vomit smelling lift and into the room. one of the windows was bricked up...the headboard was hanging off ,the sheets were stiff and grey, the bathroom was filthy ,need i go on? needless to say we checked out and ran. this hotel should be condemned and certainly not advertised for human consumption on the internet. grand or hotel it aint!

It's small, not fancy, in a little disrepair.... But when the next cheapest place to stay is 200 bucks... IT IS FINE!

While the hotel has received many bad reviews recently, the owners are working on improvements. Chef Freddy Van Breugel has opened a gourmet restaurant in the Historic Guest house on Charlotte Street that is a part of the hotel property. Without advertising, word of mouth promotions fill the establishment daily with business people, politicians and tourists. Van Breugals is an excellent addition to the planned upgrading of the Bay Street tourist area. Don't miss it if you visit Nassau.
