Stayed at the Yas Centro 3 times in May-June of 2012 on a third party recommendation. It's definitely one of the best 3 star hotels I've ever stayed in.
Pros:
*Exceptional staff - friendly, attentive and very helpful
*Comfortable beds
*Extremely clean (the housekeeping staff is very thorough - I'm rather picky and I was impressed)
*Reliable laundry service
*Fast elevators (rarely a wait)
*Free, fast wifi throughout the hotel/patio/pool
*Beautiful, newer pool with plenty of lounge chairs and towels
*Small but well-equipped gym
*Stylish, reasonably priced bar with knowledgeable and friendly staff
*Very knowledgeable and helpful concierge (they're a great resource for arranging weekend activities)
*Well-priced breakfast with plenty of choice and an omelette/custom egg station
*Exceptional value for the price

Cons
*Far away from Abu Dhabi proper (taxi is about 30minutes and 65AED)
*Rooms are only equipped with showers - no bathtubs
*Air conditioning in common areas can be chilly
*Limited room service menu

All in all, a great stay and an exceptional value (better than a number of 4 star hotels in Europe/NA).

Room Tip: Rooms facing the Rotana Hotel are much quieter (the hotel is right under a common flight path for AU...

My husband and i stayed for one night at the Centro on Yas Island while we were attending the Madonna Concert. When we checked in we requested a quiet room (due to having had to many noisy hotel room nightmares in the past) and were given a room on the top floor facing towards the Yas Rotana. The downside was it was a smoking room and did smell terrible (despite being told at check-in that it did not smell) however, it was as promised quiet and we certainly were not disturbed by the passing flights (unlike some hotels on the Island). The other things i would point out with this hotel is that the bar downstairs is freezing so take a cardigan or similar and also the music can be a bit too loud to talk over. The food is average and there only seems to be showers in the room (no bathtub) but all in all a clean, comfortable and friendly enviroment. I would certainly go back. It is important to remember that this hotel is not in the centre abu dhabi and is a good 25 minute taxi ride away.

Room Tip: Ask for a high room on the side of the Hotel facing the Rotana if you value your sleep. Not a good i...

If you want to enjoy the fun of the Formula 1 circuit or if you have business at Abu Dhabi airport this is a good place to rest your bones. It has six stories with minimal waiting times for elevators.
Staff are good. Laundry service is good. Food is good. Beds are excellent. Rooms are not fitted with bath tubs. Space for keeping clothes, like shirts, underwear is far too limited. Fast internet access is hotel-wide and is fast.

Stayed on Yas Island for one night only and selected the Centro due to its location and competitive price - I expected a basic hotel with only basics but was pleasantly surprised with what I got. Elegant spacious room, great colleagues, a great bar and restaurant that's open late and a breakfast that was better than expected. This hotel offered a better experience than some of the 4 star hotels I have stayed at in Europe and for the price I will never stay anywhere else when it comes to Yas Island!

This hotel is very nice, clean and good size rooms. The cleaners was lovely and always more than helpful. My only drawback was the price. I was told it would be £401 in total but on departure had tourism and service charge fees added. This made my bill £601 instead as you can imagine i wasnt impressed. Also they charged for room service and the food wasnt that great. Other than that it was a pleasant stay. Pool was very nice but i would of spent more on food / drink if they never added so many charges on top.

I have stayed here before last year and I liked it, but had no chance to write a review then. I came back last week on a business trip and wanted to try it again and I don't regret it one bit. This hotel is an excellent choice for business trip. It is very easily accessible. There is an underground parking with a lift that takes you up to the lobby. The lobby is small but adequately decorated and furnished. The front desk staff were welcoming and efficient. They apparently knew I came in last year and greeted me by saying "welcome back"! They then eagerly offered their AED800.00 Rotana card which I humbly declined. The room I stayed in was queen bed which had a pool view but was rather small. The bathroom was was also basic but the water pressure was excellent. Shampoo and body was with 1 piece of soap were supplied. The bed was very comfortable and I had a very good sleep. The wireless internet was free. The gym was small but adequate for a quick workout. I did not have chance to try their swimming pool or restaurants because I ate outside. There was no minibar in the room but there was a small bar in the lobby where you could buy a selection of sandwiches, cakes, drinks and toiletries. The checkout was as speedy as the check in. Overall, a great experience.

Room Tip: ask for a pool side view
