There is a lot to like about Centrotel Hotel. The rooms are clean, rates affordable and staff friendly. However, it is located in a fairly poor part of town and you'll need to take a train to the main tourist area. Definitely not walkable.
Whilst the hotel area is not dangerous as such, it is rather poor and I would not recommend wandering around on your own. In any case, there is nothing nearby open at night. I guess you get what you pay for and on those terms, it is good value.
Bottom line, if you are going for value, something affordable, have plenty of time and travelling in pairs/group, consider staying at Centrotel. Otherwise, pick somewhere closer to the main tourist areas. It will save you time travelling.
