When i was in Centro Barsha ,

The Security is stopped me and my friend in the elevator, and asking for the identity card, it is very embarrassing that security checking me while i was on my way to room, It is like a walk of shame for both of us, I suggest travellers to be away from Centro Barsha, Poor Managment, and Every where CCTV ...which is nuisance..that some one is watching you when you are in the hotel.....I hate this....and there is too much noise on the lobby in the middle of the night...

Room Tip: Please avoid...

Stayed in this hotel for almost 2 weeks. Good hotel for business (free internet and other services). Rooms are good size, bed comfortable, pool on the roof, gym. Breakfast excellent. Staff was friendly and helpful. Very close to Mall of the Emirates (walking distance – 5 minutes). Hotel bar is small but at least you can get there alcohol, prices are ok, too. happy hours from 6pm ;) If you are looking for a hotel close to the beach then this one is a no no.

We arrived late at night but the staff were on hand to welcome and help us with our bags.
The room was spacious and clean. Bedding and towels were changed everyday. This was unnecessary and we did ask them not to do it....however Dubai isn't the greenest of cities!
All the staff were helpful regarding places to visit and the best ways of getting around. As I was visiting my son this wasn't too much of an issue. The breakfast was an excellent buffet service with a chef on hand to cook waffles and eggs which ever way you wanted them.
The roof terrace/pool was adequate and space was never an issue it was nice to relax in the pool after a busy day and unlike so many other hotels the terrace was not overlooked. Again the staff were extremely helpful in arranging sunbeds and chairs in the shade or sun.
The hotel was easy walking distance to the Metro, Mall of the Emirates and Ski Dubai.

Room Tip: Taxis dont know hotel get them to drop at metro

I have mixed feelings about this hotel. i would like to have written a really good review, but I found the service at this hotel very poor.I stayed here for 7 nights having travelled with my 2 children and chose this hotel as we were visiting my sister and her family who live in Al Barsha.

The hotel is very new, modern and quite stylish. The Rooftop pool is superb. Although not a big area and did get very busy. There was only about 6 sunbeds.

We were on a bed and breakfast basis, so only ate in the restaurant for breakfast, but this was really good.
A decent cooked breakfast served buffet style (as long as your happy with chicken sausages and turkey bacon!) with a good selection of fruit, juices, cereals, pastries etc.

My main complaint was that I had booked for one adult and 2 children, but our room only had 2 single beds. I asked if we could be either moved to a family room or could they put an extra bed in the room? Even a camp bed would have been preferable to my 11 year old son and 9 year old daughter having to top and tail in a single bed for a week.
Despite asking all the reception staff and their supervisor, I was told that this couldn't be done as the hotel was full and there were no spare beds.

If your a single traveller or a couple this obviously wouldn't be a problem. I would probably recommend this hotel but reluctantly.

The other grip is their is no free Wi Fi and the charges for internet are about £3 (15 Dirhams) for 30 minutes.
