“An excellent hotel ”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2014

Stayed at this hotel for a girls' trip. It was simply amazing. Its a small hotel, but I like it as it gives a more intimate feeling. The decor is quite nice both in the lobby and in the rooms. Check-in was quick, the receptionists are friendly and professional and ample amenities were given in the room. We booked this hotel during a sale which included free breakfast and the buffet was excellent! A wide of choice of eggs, sausages, salads, cheeses, bread, pastries, juices, tea and coffee. The location is great. Right next to mall of emirates and walking distance from a metro. Taxis are also always passing in front of the hotel. The only not so good thing I have to say about the hotel is that the rooms are a little small, but its manageable. If you are looking for a hotel with a modern feel, good location, and good service, choose Centro Barsha.

Friendly, stylish hotel from Rotana is a winner on all counts. Located close to Mall of Emirates, the hotel is my preferred choice in Dubai. My third stay with the property and standards have been consistent. Staff is cheerful, friendly and make it a point to remember your preferences. Love the pool & bar area, its small but they have managed to create a vibrant vibe. Breakfast is great and well laid out with enough options for all. Rooms are small but very modern. Beds are little hard and maybe moderately firms mattresses would be better. The only other drawback is no free wifi and charges are expensive.

Room Tip: Rooms not facing the atrium are better

I love the Rotana brand and I wanted to see whether the Centro Barsha lived up to all the Tripadvisor praise. We arrived quite late, but check-in was a smooth process. For some reason however we were given a room that stank of cigarette smoke. I requested to change rooms and the staff were apologetic and quite helpful at sorting out another room for the night. They did eventually find us two adjoining rooms the day after however.

The rooms themselves are quite functional, modern, a good size and similar to the Hampton hotels of the Hilton brand.

Breakfast was fantastic, with lots of cold and hot options with a chef to cook eggs any style you like, as well as waffles, fruit and a variety of cold cuts options. The service was polite and cordial for both kitchen, and front desk staff.

The only con was the Wi-fi charges, but it's not too exorbitant, and all Rotana hotels do charge for the service.

Overall, we had an excellent stay. The Centro Barsha felt like a more functional, compact version of a full Rotana hotel, yet still manages to offer a comparable degree of service and extras.

Room Tip: I would recommend a room facing outwards towards the streets for the view.

A quaint hotel in a great location. The mall of Emirates being a block away, great swimming pool, 24hr fitness centre and a speedy on t go breakfast station. Staff were always on hand to assist wherever possible. Rooms were impeccable with up to date modern deco. All in all great value for money.

Friendly staff and including the GM who is from the EU! She is a very beautiful person and understanding to your needs...

Business center has internet, printer and they have WiFi all for a small price. If you need a private driver to go to any place, they will arrange it with an outside company who works with them! The cost is not so much, so I suggest to use it, because it's too damn hot during the day. :-)

Hotel has central air through -out and the food is pretty excellent. You will find International flair as well as International people from all over.

There is a 24 hour store which has food, drinks, and cosmetic items if you need something. The sandwiches are tasty and fresh!

The bar has a large sports screen if you are into sports and all the drinks you can think of.

Worth the $$$ and you should check it out when you are in Dubai.

Enjoy!

Room Tip: I preferred a room facing the inner section of the hotel (6th floor) and not the outside view becaus...

We stayed here for three nights this month and were not disappointed. Our request for a city view room on a higher floor was complied with and we were appointed a room on the 5th floor (Room No 502). We had a very pleasant stay and our only complaint was that on the morning of the second day the housekeeping kept on knocking intermittently from 830 as they wanted to clean the room. The initial check in at the front desk took quite a while as they took a long time with another guest who was standing before us. There is a bar and alcohol is served at the hotel. We did not have any meals here so cannot comment on the food, however, the location is great, being close to the Mall of Emirates. Its a 10-12 minute walk to the mall and you might want to take a cab instead of trudging in the scorching Dubai heat. Taxis are easily available in front of the hotel and the front desk can also call a cab for you if you request them. There is no spa at the hotel, we would have liked that, but there is a small swimming pool on the top floor as well as a gymnasium. All in all, we would certainly stay here again.

Room Tip: Higher floor rooms with a city view are preferable
