“Hmm not good”
Reviewed June 18, 2013

The hotel does now advise you that all the studio's basically have no windows! if you want any for of day light you need to draw open your curtains and everyone inside the hotel can see you! How this type of hotel was given the OK in an islamic country I will never understand. I literally couldn't get any day light unless I was ok with everyone INSIDE the hotel watching me. Disgusting.
Also when entering the hotel with my HUSBAND at 3am I was called by reception being ask to send the 'gentleman' who visited my room to come down with his passport! This gentleman was my HUSBAND who paid for the hotel and we checked in together, they have both of our passports from the start!

The first to keep in mind while visiting this hotel is that it's a 3 star hotel and not 5 star so there is some compromise in the facilities, for example there is no bellboy, room service delivery is at a cost!!!! Again this is a hotel that is part of Rotana which are very good....

From the other hand the location of the hotel is very convenient a few minutes walk from mall of the emirates and easy exit to Sheikh Zayed Road. Also within a shirt drive there are plenty of restaurants and shops which makes it handy. Also there is a small store in the Reciption open 24 hours that sells the essentials and you can find some quick bites and coffee.

The rooms are small but clean, with proper amenities from Rotana (very good by the way), also the staff are very friendly and polite and customer oriented. There is a gym and pool on the penthouse but I did not go there.

Generally speaking if your prime purpose of the visit is business or shopping then this hotel is very good since the price is really low for the service and location. But if you are in a relaxed / spa mode then this might not be the best choice I would consider other Rotana hotels.

Room Tip: Pick a room with a roadside view not facing the lobby....

I stayed at Centro Barsha with my wife for 8 nights and may i say it was a great hotel to call home for 8 nights. The staff were from the very first moment to the last moment were excellent. Centro is the only hotel i have been to in all my travels all over the world that made me feel at home. My wife had a problem will her stomach and one the sat with her for about 20 minuets asking her questions on how she was feeling and then recommended Moroccan Mint Tea and it worked so well she felt better quickly, which i was so happy with the service. It was that personal attention we got which made us feel at home. We like Centro Barsha so much that we will be staying again September. Just need to finalise the dates. All i can say keep up the good work..

Having just spent a week at Centro Barsha in connection with a move to Dubai - and having almost had to live in 4-5 stars hotel over the past many years, I can confidently state that this was one of the most pleasant hotel experiences.
The staff were extremely helpful, kind, efficient, the Rooms bright, spacious, efficient - great internet connection - excellent service in the dining area. lovely pool.
Location is perfect - close to mall of the Emirates - yet quiet -
The hotel gives 5 star service. Extremely good value.
a Gem!

Excellent service, modern decor, friendly staff, nice rooftop pool, good food, the mist comfortable bed, nothing to complain about except that there's no free Internet anywhere at the hotel. This is an issue I think management must fix. However, with your own personal hotspot, this is not an issue. Enjoyed my stay there.

Room Tip: Upgrade to the studio or suite, otherwise, rooms are very small.

Stayed for 4 nights, very nice hotel, everything was very clean and new, staff were very helpful walking distance to mall of the emirates which is handy, and metro station is also only around corner very cheap to get into city to see sites like the burj Khalifa,
Will definitely be staying here on my return from my travels.
Deserves way more than a three star rating easily compares to quality of high class 4 stars in Europe,
