We booked a room in the Hotel for one night, in our way back from Cape Town. We usually don't go to Abu Dhabi, but since we flew Etihad and our flight was to land late at night, we figured we better stay the night instead of driving an hour to Dubai. The hotel has a great package for a one night stay with a couple of tickets to Ferrari World nearby, and that sealed the deal for us.
We arrived super late and after we got lost for a while till we found the hotel, coupled with exhaustion from 13 hours of flying, you can see that we were desperate for a good night sleep. Fortunately the receptionist made the check in process very smooth. He also gave us a booklet of vouchers, which would have been very usueful had we planned to stay for more than one night, and we were given our Ferrari World tickets as well.
The room was really nice and had everything we needed from a hotel room. It was very clean, and looked very elegant. The bathroom was as good. Wi-Fi was fast and covered the whole hotel which was nice. I have stayed in Centro Hotel in Dubai before and I liked it quite a bit, and I was even more impressed with this one. We had a very good night sleep,for the bed was very comfortable and the room very quiet.
In the morning before check out we had breakfast which was included in the package. The breakfast room in the ground floor was connected to the pool, and even inJune's unforgiven heat, some guests were having their breakfast at the pool which is crazy to me. We were not as adventureous so we had our breakfast inside the restaurant. The buffet was excellent and featured a wide array of breakfast items, and there was also an omlete station which is always a great addition to any breakfast buffet. The food was good and so was the ambiance. The ground floor also has a 24 hour snack shop that sells food and other things that a traveller might need Iike beverages, candys, tooth brushes, etc. That comes handy especially an area like Yas Island in the middle of nowhere.
After breakfast we backed our things and went to check out. It was as smooth as the check in. I also had a mix up, when I made a double booking without realizing, and that was resolved thankfully without having to pay any extra money.
I think staying in Centro Hotel is a great idea especially for tourists who are looking for a cheap and nice stay close to the airport or if you are planning to visit Yas Island's attractions. The area can use better signs, but that is not really the fault of the Hotel.
