The Centro Sharjah – sleek with stunning views

IN A NUTSHELL

Centro Sharjah is charming but the real joy is its sorroundings. Modern, stylish and (affordable) lifestyle business hotel adjacent to Sharjah International Airport in Al Dhaid road.The architecture of the hotel is contemporary and has dynamic design embodying the personality of an executive hotel with highly distinctive and unique living space plus the high ceiling lighting solution.While dramatic exteriors reflect Centro’s present-day style, its crisp and modern interiors provide essential requisites and advanced technologies.

ARRIVING INTO CENTRO SHARJAH

A quick 30-minute trip along Dhaid, located on the desert plain East of the coastal City of Sharjah and is bisected by the East/West Road from Sharjah to Masafi in the foothills of the Hajar Mountains, we had arrived at the entrance to Centro Sharjah.

The hotel, nestled within an expanse lush lawn provides shaded car parking for guests. As soon as I received the hotel key card and free internet access from Ms. Doha who is very courteous and responsive, as you can probably tell we were off to a good start.

Whether you’re an out-and- about type or a take-it- easy traveler The Centro Sharjah by Rotana has much to offer.

THE ROOM

After the preliminary check-in requirements, we were shown to our suite by one of the friendly hotel staff. Our queen studio is meticulously designed to maximize space, light and efficiency and contemporary classic furniture where comfort and aesthetics are key. It had to be one of the best located in the whole hotel. The room was lovely with a large LCD TV, a very comfy light-yellow sofa, kitchen area as well as very comfortable bed – all make for a cozy atmosphere. The view from our room at fourth floor was captivating  as it boasts idyllic views of the property’s manicured lawn, gorgeous trees, and sparkling outdoor pool. I couldn’t wait to explore more of the hotel!

Stepping out is effortless…

Meticulously designed and masterfully conceived

Characterized as an executive hotel, the pool area is peaceful, relaxing and utterly idyllic, it is surrounded by perfectly manicured gardens with patio umbrellas and sunbeds, perfect for couples looking for a little more privacy. We didn’t get to spend much time here but if I had a few more days this where I’d have been.

Leave the everyday world behind and enjoy a carefree journey of infinite relaxation

GASTRONOMIC JOURNEY THROUGH C.TASTE

Dinner at C. Taste was one of the highlights of our stay. C. Taste is categorized as fine dining and it’s the hotel’s signature restaurant that features an intimate yet lively atmosphere. The menu brings international gastronomic experience with incredibly charming the setting was. Everything from the food and  to the setting and the service was absolutely faultless at C. Taste located at the lobby area.

If you’re in Sharjah or just around Sharjah International Airport but not staying at the hotel, I would definitely recommend coming here for dinner. Special thanks to AJ who is very professional and forbearing, and who treated us really well.

C. Taste’s superb refined dining with spectacular views

Before checking-out, we had a scrumptious breakfast buffet  to the same restaurant which had been transformed into a light and bright breakfast venue. Overall our dining experience is nice and the quality of service can be level to a 4 star hotel. If you are traveling from the Sharjah Airport and looking for a bite to eat, C.Taste restaurant in Centro Sharjah will make you feel right at home as you settle in.

My Take

One word  that sets Centro Sharjah apart is the service, which I would say is even beyond 4 star.
Stepping into Centro Sharjah the first time feels like something out of a film. It’s the picture perfect setting you dream of, and to see it in real life is something special. I’ve been blessed enough to stay at some pretty memorable hotels around the region, but Centro Sharjah by Rotana definitely makes it in to my top 5 hotels of all time.

Recommended for –  a romantic getaway in Sharjah, couples holidays, special occasions and a once-in-a-lifetime trips.

Our family enjoyed an abundance of culinary delights at the hotel’s Mojo, an all-day dining restaurant offering local specialties and international favorites.  In the hospitality industry, smiling is one of the most important things that guests look for. At the core, Hilton Sharjah  treated us really very well from its front desk, housekeeping to culinary team!

The hotel’s promotional activities are geared towards promoting Sharjah as the ‘Arab Capital of Culture’. Since the hotel’s conversion, the management team has worked alongside Sharjah Commerce and Tourism Development Authority and Sharjah Investment and Development Authority,to showcase some ofthe region’s most popular tourist attractions.

Hilton Sharjah also provides easy access to corporate districts and its proximity to Sharjah Expo Centre makes it an ideal location for hosting business meetings or special occasions in the hotel’s various event spaces.
