Although the room was booked with an accepted credit card, they demanded cash when the traveler tried to check in, and refused to allow him to stay. They refused to utilize the credit card they accepted by phone for room payment, refused a different credit card he had with him, and because he was unable to pay cash he was turned away with no where to stay, in a strange and dangerous city, alone. Terrible experience.
the grand central hotel staff was very friendly and helpful. the hotel location was very convenient for downtown Nassau, everything is within a short 5 minute walk. the hotel was fairly quiet and i never had any problems there in the 8 days i stayed. the hotel could use some upkeep but with the price it is a good deal if you don't plan on spending much time in your room. the bed sheets are a little old and after reading reviews stating the same thing i brought my own. no real complaints, i would stay again.
Location only Very dirty, old, rundown and sketchy. More like a hostel not a hotel for $90 a night...maybe $20
My flight was delayed by 6 hours so reached bahamas by 2200. I booked it through kayak linked to booking.com they have me a price for 5nights including VAT. When I entered inside that filthy place she charged me the price shown by BOOKING.com +vat and it was way higher. I tried to show them the papers of my booking where it clearly states prices including VAT but the person working in front said she did not get any instructions like that from her management. You get hot shower only when it has it's mood and sometimes late morning by 11 if you plan to take shower water might not come. Water was salty as hell and toilet doesn't flush properly. When you call them for maintenance service the person shows up checks it and everytime he will say he will be right back in 10 minutes and don't even show up. Vending machine is out of stock the whole time I stayed. Only GOOD thing over there was it's in the DOWNTOWN. Poor quality and they ripped me off
Location No wifi in the rooms
It had working AC, cable television and a hot shower. I just needed a place to sleep for a night and this was perfect. The cheapest I could find in town and if all you require from a hotel is a place to sleep and leave your stuff this fits the bill. It may be a little run-down, could use some paint and new fixtures but I've definitely stayed in worse, right here in the U.S. It was actually better than I expected after reading some of the reviews. I would stay here again if I was back in Nassau.
