Centro Barsha Rotana
If you are coming to Dubai and looking for an affordable place to stay then Rotana Centro Barsha is a place for you.
It is around 20 minutes ride from Burj Khalifa and Dubai Mall and very close to Miracle Gardens and Jumeirah Beach. We stayed in one bedroom apartment with a kitchen attached to the living room and perfect size closet. If you are looking for a nice place to stay on budget, place where you can cook your own meals and prepare your morning coffee, this place is perfect for you. It is especially good for longer I think as you can have enough space for your daily activities.
We have arrived at Centro Barsha around noon. It took us slightly 10 minutes to check in. They have a nice lobby so that if there is a long line you can just relax on the couch. After that, we proceed to our room. It was spacious and comfortable. I definitely need closet the same size as they have here so that I finally could fit all my clothes. There is also ironing station in the room which is great, as after many days of traveling our clothes doesn’t actually come out wrinkle free from our luggage.
They are two tv’s so if you for some reason fight with your other half which movie to watch you can simply enjoy your own tv shows in separate rooms.
The hotel also provided us with extra sleepers, toothpaste, and toothbrushes which is a nice touch and something I really appreciated in China as well.
When you are there, you definitely must check out the swimming pool. It is at the hotel’s rooftop and has a bar in the same place so in hot Dubai weather you can enjoy a sip of margarita while cooling in the pool.
There is also a beautiful mosque just right outside of the hotel.
Unfortunately, we had a flight early in the morning so we had to check out around 5 am. As it was not breakfasted time yet, we still could pick a sandwich and coffee from the inside store. If I stay longer I would definitely prepare breakfast myself in the room as breakfast is the most important meal of the day. I especially enjoyed complimentary coffee I could enjoy in the room as this is the first thing I need to start my day with.
It was overall nice stay here at Centro Barsha and we are hoping to go back to Dubai again to have an opportunity to discover it more.
