Centro Yas Island Abu Dhabi by Rotana
Ranked #40 of 127 Hotels in Abu Dhabi
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 22 July 2011

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.

We stayed one night on our way to Europe. I chose Centro Yas Island because it was close to the airport ('close' ended up being about a 15 minute drive) and because we got a fantastic deal through a last-minute website.

The hotel is one of a collection of hotels in the middle of nowhere. If you are looking to 'see Abu Dhabi' and be close to the action, this is not your hotel. However, it is a fantastic choice for a quick stopover or to be close the Formula 1 track.

The hotel itself was clean and new, the staff were friendly and helpful. We were not there long, but had an excellent sleep in a safe and comfortable location.

My wife and I went to Yas Island for a concert, and we stayed at Centro. The place was easy to find, and the whole place was great! It's a business hotel, so don't expect huge rooms, but everything was clean. They have an all-night deli that made good food. Also, when we went, there were shuttle buses going from the hotel area to the concert for free! The town center of Abu Dhabi is about 20 minutes away, but this place is awesome for events on Yas Island. Also, it's right next door to the Yas Island Rotana, so you can go to the places there as well. We'll definitely go again!

Room Tip: The poolside view was nice.

We ended up staying in the hotel for about 18hours due to prior flight delays into Muscat, rather than the original plan of a 7 hour sleep before the long haul flight to Sydney with 3 young kids. A lovely sojourn before the long flight, and we couldn't get the kids out of the pool - they loved it. Room was a bit small but for AED300 (USD82) for all of us, and they also put a cot in the room for the 1 year old - two 'three quarter' beds officially classed as single, so a bit of a squeeze. Large shower, fridge, safe, plus tea/coffee making. All the staff were great! Very friendly and helpful - popped over the partner Rotana Hotel 60metres away for self-select lollies/sweets - a treat for the kids. The Rotana also supplements the Centro with another bar and 3 restaurants. Great buffet breakfast with chef cooking eggs as you like them. The location close to the airport and price were the two reasons we chose this hotel. Perfect with us, but it is more of a business traveller hotel with free fast WiFi internet connection with my iPhone.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with the view of the F1 race track
