Just the basics with communal bathrooms. Located dead center in town. Great balcony view. Near bus station and restaurants. If you need more than a bed and a place to sleep look other places!! You can spend a lot more other places what I needed was just a bed and room to sleep in. You won't need an alarm clock...

We came to stay at Central ‘Otel for two nights and ended up staying for 5. We came to stay here because it was cheap, clean and in a good location but we got much more than we paid for. The best part of our stay was meeting an inspiring, warm and genuine person - Glynn, the hotel manager. He...

We spent two days in Central'Otel. Glynn, the manager, was the most interesting person we met on our 18 days Belize trip. The small hotel balcony is the best place to meet travelers and get involved in town life. Some people might not like it because the first impression could be completely wrong. Great price and location - generally clean.

Without a doubt, Central 'otel is the best value in San Ignacio. It is just a few steps from where the bus from Belize city would drop you off. Burns Avenue is a pedestrian mall in town where you will find tour companies, restaurants, shops, BTL, etc. The hotel has a porch overlooking the pedestrian mall. The wifi signals are...

The room was clean, the bathrooms were fine. We were there for 5 nights and the price was the best part. The hotel advertises wi-fi, but it's really the wi-fi of the cafe next door. We had spotty wi-fi on the balcony, and none in the room. We tended to hang out at the cafe if we had some serious...

Dear "Clean Enough" Sorry about the lack of WiFI for the period you stayed with us. I was renovating my gift shop downstairs and had unplugged everything. Next time you visit you will have connection in your room or out on the balcony Thanks for staying with us

Central O'tel is not the fanciest place in the world, but Glynn is fantastic and the hospitality is top notch. He goes out of your way to make sure you feel comfortable and is more than willing to help you out with directions, attractions, etc. It's right in the middle of town and a quick walk to anywhere (market, bus...

I stayed here for 5 nights. I loved it. Glynn ( the manager) is 100% amazing and goes out of his way to help and be hospitable. It is also a very central hotel with a great balcony overlooking the main street to watch the world go by. Also clean and safe and cheap. I really recommend staying here. It...

Glynn is a fantastic host- personal care of his guests. Location is as the name implies- Central, with a balcony overlooking the street below to watch the world go by. Felt very safe, Glynn goes out of his way to make guests at ease. Rooms are spacious, clean, comfortable. Clean is key. Highly recommended.

Very central location, very very good value - ideal for backpackers... What really makes it though is Glyn and his hospitality - he was so welcoming and thoughtful, we were brought towels and soap and even offered an extra fan because he had spare. Very comfy beds, wifi in the rooms and excellent showers. Definitely recommend staying with him and...
