“Modern basic great location”
Reviewed April 8, 2012

The hotel is modern and contemporary in design what lets this hotel down is the service and staff or maybe it's the management policies such as no help with luggage.
The rooms are v modern and v small. But you get what u pay for and the hotel does all the basic right. It's goood value and in a great location

I stayed here in March with my friend and we were told the hotel was basic. The hotel was not basic, lovely modern hotel, marble interior and friendly staff. 5 minute walk to the mall and taxis are always outside. Pool was lovely and clean. Room was cleaned everyday with fresh towels. Staff were very pleasant especially those in the restaurant. Fresh breakfast hot or cold every morning.
Loved it so much my husband and I are looking to visit again next month. Great location ten minutes in taxi to most localities burj al Arab, springs, Dubai mall. Great price, couldn't fault at all.

Superficially the hotel is quite stylish, in a sort of non-descript and typically modern Dubai sort of way and it is clearly more of a business hotel than anything else, but my experience was really not good at all:

The room was very small, you have to carry your own luggage (the hotel seemed unduly proud of this policy for some reason) and breakfast was overpriced. Not only that, but my room was simply not clean. There were some extremely suspect stains on the chair and the bedside table and even the toilet hadn’t been properly sanitised and this is inexcusable. One of the pillows smelled awful and had to be thrown out of the bed, there were hairs in the bathroom and the magazines and directories were pretty grubby and sticky. Finally, I was accosted by a prostitute in the bar when I went in for a solitary drink following dinner (elsewhere). Experience has shown that this is this is a common problem in Dubai, but I do feel hotels must know that this is going on.

In terms of location, Centro is in a not too bad, but hardly exciting area. I was able to park my car on an adjacent dirt patch and the Mall of the Emirates, a few corner shops and a metro station are easily within walking distance if you are brave enough to try crossing Dubai’s murderous roads. That said, the lack of cleanliness and the general sleaziness of the place means that I will not be going back.

The hotel delivers what it should:
- comfy beds..for some on the small side, but I was okay with it.
- roof top pool
- decent gym
- friendky staff... Especially the doormen, who jumped into traffic to get taxis for us

But it is located somewhat in the sticks.. And the comments about the restaurants are true.. 60 Dhs for that breakfast... We started going to starbucks in mall of emirates in stead..

And pricing to get online...wau... Someone got a little carried away...

But all in all a good budget hotel, and unless you find a bargain down by the marina, consider Centro Barsha for your next visit...

Room Tip: Do your breakfast in the Mall of Emirates...

Staff not helpful, management equally arogant. I made one local call (which is free in Dubai) for less than 1 minute and was charged for TWELVE HOURS!!!

Could not talk to the manager as he was no where to be seen. I had given pre authorization on my card and they took advantage of this and charged me AED 290 for a local call of less than 1 minute.
AVOID THIS HOTEL IF YOU CAN.
