“THE PERFECT BUSINESS ROOM”
Reviewed 27 June 2013

I stayed here for 3 nights, and decided to extend a night further because I loved the place. Situated in a business district, you'll love the place. The bar is great, it's not that usual bar with live bands, this is a bar that you can relax. It's a perfect place to unwind. I stayed here as accommodation for my licensure exams, and because this hotel is very good..I passed the exams.. :-)

Room Tip: There's a store and a chinese restaurant nearby :-)

A very cute hotel to go to. The buffet is awesome. I love the friday bubbly brunch. I took my friends and they also turned out to be the bubbly friday fans. Very economical. The ambience is awesome. The best choice if you are looking in for good food and cute place to stay. Try the Centro Al Manhal Abu Dhabi by Rotana.

Room Tip: Nothing much to say about the rooms. Try the Lemon Soda with the pinch of salt and suger together. T...

Hotel is a tower located centrally, footsteps away from al washday mall, where you can eat and shop. Rooms are on the smaller side and not as pretty as centro Dubai. Overall good sleep and average view of the city. Good shower. Service is ok but nothing to write home about. The not so good bits: no one will help you with your luggage, the room wasn't cleaned thoroughly (there was cigarette ashes on the carpet and spots on the table), tv isn't clear, very limited food selection from room service, empty minibar (you have to get your own stuff), the wifi is not free and will kill u with how slow it is. The hotel called my mobile three hours after i left to ask me to check out even though i did! I don't think this hotel is good for business travellers as basic things are missing but for an affordable city stay for someone not fussy it could be good.

Room Tip: Take a higher floor

Dear RUSH2,

Thank you for taking the time to write your opinion about your stay with us. We are sorry to know that the stay wasn’t up to your expectations.
We apologize for the call from the front desk team after your checkout, for the fault from the housekeeping team and for the slow Wi Fi signal, we assure you that these issues will not be faced again in your next stay.

In regards to the luggage assistance, having stayed before at another Centro property, we hope that you have been familiarized with the concept of Centro Hotels and the fact the luggage assistance is not part of the services provided, however our team will always be ready to assist our guests with any help they might need on this matter.

As for the cooler which you have referred to as a mini bar, we would like to kindly note that this cooler is in the room for the guests if they wish to preserve and store any of their food or beverage items in, and is not stocked with any items simply because c.deli is available 24/7 for our guest’s convenience to purchase any of their needs from or to even order to their room.

We would appreciate if you can clarify what you mean with your comment on the TV. Please send us an email on centro.almanhal@rotana.com and we will be more than delighted to get in touch with you.

We sincerely hope to see you again with our promise for a better experience.
With kind regards,
Riaz Jeelani

We travelled with our teenage son and as there was three of us we required 2 rooms. It seems very few hotels in Abu Dhabi accommodate 3 people. We arrived at about 7.30 in the morning and the staff were very helpful at getting a room already for us as soon as possible. We left our luggage in the foyer and went for a walk around to familiarize ourselves with the area and then went and sat up near the pool on the rooftop. We were able to check in at about 10.30 which was appreciated rather than waiting around till midday.The staff managed to put us in rooms right next door to each other.
They were clean and comfortable with large bathrooms , decor was lovely and we had requested a non smoking floor .The staff were all very friendly and helpful, and offer lots of tips on local custom, requirements etc.
Breakfast was more than any one could possible want, with a good selection of hot dishes salads, egg station, fresh cooked waffles( the best I have ever had) pastries and lots more. All very tasty and couldn't fault it.
Location was excellent, close to the shopping mall, on the main road to the beach.
Absolutely no complaints and would not hesitant to stay to stay again. Thanks for a wonderful stay.

For me, this hotel fits the categories of a good one: clean, well located, nicely appointed, relatively new, and something of a view. Abu Dhabi, like some of the other Middle Eastern "new" cities, does not have a very well defined city centre, but of what I think is the centre this is a bit outside of. That being said, it was relatively straightforward and not so expensive to get around.
I did have a few of some of the very large towers being built, which was pretty cool, and found the staff to be pleasant and helpful; to be fair, I had minimal interaction with them, but when I did it was good. Nice rooftop pool/patio, as well - cool views.
Overall, I think this is worth staying and I understand it's a good value for money!

I have enjoyed the stay in Centro when me and my family visited Abu Dhabi. We chose the hotel primarily for 1 reason because it was close to the hotel where my friend from college which I haven't seen for 10 years was staying from. Although, I give rated individual categories highly however the overall experience was brought down by the fact that they have limited breakfast selection, slow valet, and most of all, this doesn't happen a lot but when we went to the pool, a guest with visibly skin disease in the lower body came out from the pool. It brought down the entire experience and made me realize that even though there is no proof that the condition that the guest have is contagious it is rather difficult to think about something else at that point.

We apologize for the slow service from the valet, the team is always trying to provide a fast service, however in some busy times a delay might be caused which we sincerely apologize for.

As for the breakfast, the buffet offers a variety of dishes along with a live cooking station, we are sorry that you were not able to find your preferred dishes. Kindly do let us know your suggestions in your next visits and we will try our level best to meet your demands.

Regarding the guest on the pool, we assure you that we would be aware if the guest has any health condition and especially if it was a contagious conditions. Moreover, the recreation team is always available to ensure that every guest using the pool is in a healthy condition.

We hope to see you again at Centro Al Manhal.

Readers of my previous review about this hotel will note that I made very flattering comments about the valet parking guys in particular - not any more.
It seems that they have now subcontracted the parking and the new drivers are unable to park my 'large' car that the previous employees had no problem during my many visits here.
It remains to be seen, if, when I collect my car tomorrow it is undamaged. I wonder how much they saved especially when they nett it off against the custom they will lose as a result.
Other than that the hotel appears to be as good as before with good reception staff and excellent rooms.
