We spent 4 nights at the Centro Sharjah and we were very happy. I would have given a rating of 5 stars as my experience of this hotel reflects many of the positive reviews from others. Clean room. WONDERFUL pillows. Comfortable bed. The room looked just like the photos. Parking was plentiful and convenient. Easy access to the ring road and all parts of Dubai. The staff was very pleasant, friendly. We didn't eat here, but the food looked wonderful, nice presentation.
Here was our one, and only problem: The evening of our last stay (last because of this problem), we came home to find the door of our room ajar...meaning open and unlocked. The cleaning staff didn't close the door after cleaning. I suspect they left the door open to get something and didn't return. We were very fortunate that nothing was stolen from our room. Immediately, I went to downstairs to tell the front desk manager. He was unavailable, so I spoke to the staff on duty. His first comment was, "Madame, you need to pull the door closed when you leave." (Odd because the doors are weighted to fall shut when you leave them.) When I explained AGAIN to them that it was their cleaning staff that left the door open (I had placed the "clean my room" sign on the door.), he still seemed to be unfazed. It was difficult for us to understand that they didn't see the implications of this problem, probably because nothing was stolen from our room? Or, maybe because I didn't scream and yell that they left the door open? This complete oversight of a security issue made us decide to check out of the hotel.
Regarding free wi-fi. The internet is not free in this hotel. It is, however, cheaper per hour than most places, but very difficult to login from the hotel's secured browser. Just a reminder that the UAE censors the internet. Please don't expect that you will get free access to internet everywhere.
