The Centro is a business hotel that focuses on the essentials but these it does very well indeed. The design is modern but not random; international brands, bath room appliances, walk-in showers, well-trained staff and high-quality breakfast show a strategy behind the concept. The rooftop pool is nicely done, although small you can swim and have spectacular views across Abu Dhabi. Internet rates are very competitive. The hotel is located in the centre and 5 taxi mins from the corniche and 10 mins from Emirates Palace. Overall a positive experience.

Stayed here for 1 night during flight stopover from Bangkok. A lovely hotel in a good location. Will stay there again. Was not there long enough to use all the facitlities but the room was lovely. It was clean and had everything you could need. The reception staff were very helpful when we arrived showing us a map and suggesting things to do. I have also has a questionnaire to fill in on e mail since I got back asking for feedback. I feel this is good practice and will ensure the standards remain as high as they are now.

Hotel location is great, beside a couple of supermarkets, restaurants, a mall and the bus station in case you want to go Dubai. Its a bit pricey for a 3 star hotel but maybe bcz i booked on short notice.
Important tip: Room doors are very loud when they close, so if you are a light sleeper you will have difficulty sleeping especially if your neighbors checkin late at night
Service was poor and they charge you 10AED for room service delivery even if its for some ice!
Reception staff were helpful, especially "Mohamed"
Stuff in the room needs some re-designing as its crowded

I stayed 4 days in this hotel. The room was really nice, modern. Not too big but really great to stay.
Very good and nice service.
The location is ok. Near a Mall. But you need a car to walk around.
Nice view of Abu Dhabi from roof top by the swimming pool.

I had a very nice stay with my sister here. Staying for 4 nights, enjoyed the room and the breakfast facility, but we didn't have much time to use the other facilities.The room was spacious. Everytime we came back to the room, after a long full tired day, the only made our sleep and rest were so good that the bed and the room were made up. The breakfast was lovely, all the staffs are so friendly and helpful in the restaurant, even though they were busy. One day we came down for breakfast and we had no table to dine. 1 of the staff approached me and offered a table which would be vacant and ready soon. The location of the hotel is very good, easy access to the closest mall and walking distance to the bus station.

I stayed in this hotel for 3 weeks prior to finding accomodation in the city. It is an excellent hotel with only a 3 star rating ( why I do not know it should be much higher).

The location is ideal deep in the city and next to the popular al wahda mall. The gym is small but has everything you need for a workout, the pool is situated on the roof and is sheltered from the wind and has ample sunscreens. The hotel has a cafe, bar and excellent resteraunt.

The hotel is very modern and immaculately clean.

I thoroughly enjoyed my stay and would recommend to anyone for a visit , work or family stay. The staff are friendly from the valet parking through to the pool staff. The reception desk are extremely helpful.

I would like to mention the hotel manager Ali, and reception staff Anas and Angelina. All who helped me with all my wishes.

Great hotel
