8/10 Very good

Hotel is nice and is close proximity to town or bay walk by tricycle. Only downfall I would say is the aircon is very loud in the room so when trying to sleep is a bit hard and sometimes the towels were not as clean. I would still recommend to stay at the hotel as these were only minor issues and everything else was smooth sailing!

the hotel's location is excellent. Only 1 tricycle away from the shopping malls and restaurants. Finding transportation is easy since you are at the center of the wonder why it is named "hotel centro"

6/10 Good

The only reason I keep staying here is the fantastic pool. The best in the city center. But the restrooms by the pool are smelly and in poor condition. The rooms are 2-star quality. Breakfast is good.
