    I was very pleased! Wendy the sales manager was very patient and pretty funny. She's caring and made sure that everything in the reception hall was up to par. It's affordable and beautiful! I love the historic richness of the venue. I definitely recommend this place! Thank you Wendy and staff for all your help!

    This was such a unique venue. All my guests were very impressed. The wedding was beautiful. Wendy was sooo incredibly helpful, professional and sweet. It was a pleasure to work with her. We used both downstairs rooms for cocktail hour and reception. We had a vintage theme and it was perfect. I would highly recommend this place.

    I had a beautiful, fairy tale wedding ceremony and reception at Centro Asturiano. The building is beautiful and historic with amazing architecture, the staircases and chandeliers looked great in the pictures. Wendy Ottenwalder, my event coordinator, was very helpful and flexible, answering all my questions and emails quickly in the 9 months prior while I was planning. All other venues in the area had limited tables and chairs or wanted us to rent our own. Centro provided us with unlimited seats and allowed us to bring in our own caterers which allowed us to have 150 guests, instead of paying a high price per guest the way some venues charge. I changed my floor plan several times, and Wendy was very patient and allowed us to store a couple big things in the building a couple days before so we'd have less to do the day of. She was patient and kind to my family who all had different ideas and questions, very professional. I would highly recommend this venue, I was able to do my ceremony and reception in one 8 hour rental of the Grand Ballroom. Absolutely beautiful.

    Very flexible and great service. I rented the grand ballroom. It was beautiful and big! I had my ceremony and my reception at the same location it was amazing. All of the people on staff were very friendly and helpful. They allowed me to get any catering i wanted so your stuck on using some gross wedding food. That was our selling point. My colors were gray and light pink. I thought the wall colors would clash because they are red but it actually turned out very pretty.

    Centro Asturiano is a beautiful historic building with a wonderful staff. I wanted a vintage inspired wedding and this was the perfect venue. My guests were so impressed. One of the best things is that it was so affordable, but looks like a million bucks! Wendy, the woman that coordinated everything with me was very accommodating and helped ease the stress of planning it myself. We were married in the theatre, so beautiful on its own that we didn't need to decorate, and then held the reception in the third floor ballroom. I was also happy because my father is in a wheelchair and this is one of the few historic places that is completely wheelchair accessible, they even had a lift to get him onstage! The elevator was a plus for me as well so that I didn't have to teeter on the stairs in my shoes and dress too much. This place is definitely a hidden gem of Tampa!

    I used this facility for my reception. Their price was budget friendly and the space was very good. Wendy was extremely helpful. She communicated with me at every opportunity. She ensured that we had enough time to get the reception ready. The staff at Centro was friendly and helpful to my guest. I thoroughly enjoyed my experience at Centro.

    Working w/ Wendy was wonderful. She's very polite and helpful. The Grand Ballroom is big and beautiful. Plenty of room to dance on their hardwood floors! They also provided all the tables and chairs that we needed. We also loved the look of the big, beautiful windows!!! Also; having the cash bar was awesome. We got many compliments from people saying it was a great place to have a wedding reception. Everyone loved it!!!

    Great location. The ballroom is beautiful inside and made the weddig feel and look very classy. The pictures taken by the photographer came out gorgeous with the antique structure of the building. The staff were also very accomodating in the decoration and the breakdown of the wedding. Awesome place and a great choice for any wedding or speacial event.

    From a couple who only had 2 months to plan their wedding, to our surprise, booking our hall was the most seamless, stress-free item on the list. From the rental agreement, to setting up the hall, and the day of the wedding, everyone at Centro was simply amazing.

    Not only did we get fantastic service we got a spectacular location. The hall was so rich with history, architectural interest ,and stunning halls, and chandeliers - it really stands well on its own.

    Thank you to the entire staff at Centro. Special thanks to Cecilia, for her professionalism, flexibility and charming personality. It was a pleasure working with her. Also, thank you to Rene who went over and beyond helping our coordinator setup. Can't forget our awesome security guards who made sure gramma who disappeared on us, was well taken care of and being looked after. And of course our bar tender. Can you say best sangria EVER!

    Sincerely,
    The Gutheries

    It was a pleasure working with Wendy and her crew. She was very helpful and she invited me to an open house where I was able to hire the vendors that completed my event. I was very satisfied with the entire staff during the event. The Bar Tenders did a great job and my employees enjoyed the evening.

    We held our prom in this gorgeous historic venue to rave reviews from students and staff. Several people had voiced concerns about the location and proximity to Ybor City. The site offers fully enclosed parking and went out of their way to make sure that any concerns were addressed. They were so amazing, since our calendar changed several times, we needed to move dates...... they graciously accomodated our needs. They supplied us with a list of preferred vendors and we selected our DJ and caterer from them, and once again, our expectations were exceeded!
    Students have told us how magical their Junior Senior prom was and that is due to the wonderful efforts of the Centro Staff. You will not be disappointed with the venue or the staff.

    Everything worked out well I enjoyed working with Wendy and her staff. The place was beautiful, and I enjoyed seeing my name on the outside. We have a fantastic time, and If I had to do it all over again I would do it the exact same way. I fell like I have gained a friend in Wendy.

    I fell in love with the ballroom at first sight. My husband and I decided on an historic building since we're both Tampa natives. Working with Cecelia was such a joy. She's quite a character!! She allowed my dream wedding to come true. This ballroom was spacious enough for 150 guests, a nice size dance floor, and columns to fit my fancy! My guests truly enjoyed this historic building.

    The place was very beautiful and we love it. Wendy was great and very helpful and did her best to help me save money. The only thing is that we felt very rushed after the cermony and left some of our family members having to pick up and not being able to take pictures. I know we weren't on scheduled but we did have the place until the evening and we wanted to make sure we had everyone in the pictures. Overall, I did have a great experience. The staff were very nice and professional. I would recommend this venue to other people.
