“Ticks all the boxes”
Reviewed July 5, 2011

I stayed in Centro Barsha for the second time last month, and it was once again a very good stay. I arrived late at night but the staff were very helpful and quick. The rooms were simple but more than sufficient - everything was very clean and comfortable.

It's in a good location and, for whatever reason, I got free wifi, so perhaps the lack of free wifi (mentioned by other reviewers) is relatively new, but I can't vouch for that. Breakfast was good, and had sufficient variety.

This hotel is nothing to write home about, but it's close to Mall of the Emirates, reasonably-priced and dependably good quality. All in all, I recommend it.

Very tidy hotel based stones throw away from the Mall of the Emirates and the metro. The rooms are very comfortable with all necessary mod cons. Room was cleaned daily to a high standard. Staff were helpful throughout. My only gripe would be regarding the restaurant, menu very limited and food was not of a high standard. Overall, good value in a good location, I would certainly be happy to return.

We booked 5 rooms for 2 nights and we were quite pleased with the rooms state, they were clean, quiet and just about the right size. This is a 3 stars hotel but you don't get the feel that it is . Mall of the emirates is a walking distance in the right weather.
The hotel doesn't have a lot of 2 seperate beds, so that can be an issue depending on the numbers in the party you are traveling with.
Staff were overall friendly, value for money is good.

I'm a very regular guest at Centro Barsha on weekends, the hotel is just perfect for a traveller looking for basic needs within a modern stylish and comfortable stay. The hotel is a budget brand under the 5 star Rotana chain of hotels, so the high class rotana touch is visible. The only negative drawback is the water pressure in the bathroom is miserable and needs attention. If you are lucky enough to get a room on the 6th floor you will enjoy strong and adequate water pressure, otherwise the water pressure in all other floors is weak and needs immediate attention. I have stayed in this hotel more than 50 times since opening and have tried all floors and this problem seems common in all rooms.Service is very good with excellent employees attitude.

Since the hotel is classified as a budget brand the below services are NOT available :
1. Valet parking (basement parking provided free of charge for inhouse guests,
2. Room service ( 24 hours deli shop is available serving all types of
sandwiches,drinks, desserts),
3. SPA facilities ( gym and swimming pool on the rooftop is available)
4. Free Internet (earlier provided on a complimentary basis in lobby and room, now highly charged everywhere including lobby terminals!! BE AWARE THAT ONCE YOU PURCHASE ANY PLAN FOR USAGE AT THE LOBBY TERMINALS YOU WILL HAVE TO UTILISE THE ENTIRE TIME AND CANNOT BE SAVED/LOGGED OUT FOR LATER USAGE
In general, a very good hotel and highly recommended for travellers seeking affordable accommodation without comprimising on quality and class.

Room Tip: 6th floor rooms enjoy the best water pressure

Anyone who's been to Dubai knows that hotels are extortionate, some of the most expensive I've come across in my travels. Centro Barsha is a fantastic option if you want a little bit of luxury and excellent service without the 5-star price tag. It is located a 3-minute walk from the spectacular Mall of the Emirates, it's got a gorgeous rooftop pool, and the staff are top class, as is typical of Dubai service wherever you go. I really couldn't fault it! If I had one gripe, it would be the lack of free Wi-fi, which I would expect from any good hotel these days, but other than that we really enjoyed our stay.

A very good, no frills, budget hotel for the businessman. Fast internet, efficient housekeeping, good size room safe, great bathroom and shower, clean, modern room, big TV etc. BUT, I went to get a beer from the bar 5 minutes before happy hour ended and was refused by the barman, who said that according to his till happy hour had just ended! I showed him the official government time on my mobile (synchronised with the Etisalat cellphone network) be he still refused. I was miffed, but then I found out that of the six or seven beers on sale, only one was on happy hour offer anyway. Suggest they rename it the miserable misers' hour.
