I wasn't disappointed, I had yet another enjoyable stay at this rotana franchise:

- rooms were very neat and cleaned everyday
- pool was very clean and surrounded with friendly staff
- nice breakfast buffet, although I got tired of the menu list
- friendly staff

In case you are looking for a delightful business hotel right in the heart of Dubai, centro seems to be the perfect answer with close proximity to Mall of Emirates (MOE) and Metro station connectivity
and easily available buses and taxis. What adds to this property is the calm place that this hotel is
The internet connectivity speeds are above average and you could enjoy some real stable internet experience. However the breakfast is a well laid out standard menu and lacks a bit of creativity. This is definitely one area the hotel can improve upon with theme based breakfast arrangements

Room Tip: Please choose a room with view of the Mall of emirates as the main road is very quiet you would not...

We booked this hotel for a week between 22 and 29 December 2012. One of the main reasons We chose this hotel was its proximity to Sharaf Metro station(Mall of emirates also has a metro station but Sharaf is closer to the Hotel) and Mall of Emirates.
Our stay was excellent thanks to the staff who are very courteous and helpful. They would welcome you with a smile whenever you entered the premises, and when you go out waiting for a cab, the security guys would run around the block to fetch one.
Only things which we think could need some thought is ... WiFi access is very expensive... this should be made complementary as almost everyone has a gadget or the other requiring internet access.

Good hotel. Stay is comfortable. Breakfast is decent. Don't rely on the hotel for lunch or dinner. Hotel is located close to the mall of the emirates and sharan dg metro station (both walking distance). Staff is courteous.

Without a deal, the hotel may be a bit pricey. The hotel is best for business trips and ok for personal trips.

Gym is not good. Equipment does not work.

Room Tip: Choose rooms with an outside view if possible.

Overall service was above average, though at certain times the service was sub-standard. This occurred especially during meals and while at the bar. To have a fully stocked bar, where the bartenders have NO idea how to make a Vodka Martini (I had to explain it to them), was amazing to me. Front Desk staff where excellent, very accommodating and helpful.

Wireless access, in a hotel this pricey, should be gratis. It wasn't and was expensive. Connection speed was above average.

Location wasn't bad for our purposes - the only point of interest close by was the Mall of the Emirates, but access to bus lines and cabs was good, and I felt as though we had easy access to a variety of other locations.

The hotel is situated in Al Barsha area, which is away from the "in" districts of Dubai. The Metro is within walking distance, as is the Mall of The Emirates. For a few days stopover it is ideal. Cheap by Dubai standards, well furnished with all amenities. Good breakfast, deli counter and internet. Staff professional and courteous.......really no reason to pay the extortionate rates for a view of the beach !!!! Would certainly go back, great sleep.

Room Tip: Don't buy the internet package it is a rip off.
