Stayed on a weekend away trip to Abu Dhabi, looking to get away from Dubai's madness and just cool down before heading back neck-deep in work.Centro surprises you with their quality and comfortably located hotel with excellent basic amenities.
Surprising you with small things that go a long way, we had an extremely comfortable room (raking up many many hours of blissful snooze), great hot shower, complimentary water, good TV channel options, good view, professional yet very friendly staff and good pool and gym at the roof top.
If you are looking to have a great little getaway from the town while still being in the centre of it, this is the place to be. This would come across as a great business hotel, being very comfortable and reasonably priced all at the same time.
Not to mention, we had Friday brunch and breakfast the morning after, and the food was exemplary. Every dish was tenderly chosen to be included on the menu and you would see some surprise entries in the buffet that normally are not included in your standard hotel BB options. From Hammour Fillet with Passion fruit cream, to Lamb and mushroom to Octopus with Thai sauce to the most amazing machine I have ever seen- the pancake popper machine, with an assortment of pancake topping sauces (the best caramel sauce I have ever tasted in my life!) and also one of the best sausages I have ever had too!
Top Pros- Definitely the best your money can get- the room, the service, the location, the food.
Cons- There is no parking facilities and the valet parking is quite dismal, they are quite scarcely staffed with regard to valet and the concierge/travel desk is not very knowledgeable as you'd expect.
Special shout out to the Head Chef who checked on us during brunch and the lovely ladies at the reception, for the wonderful warm welcome.
