Rotana, the leading hotel management company in the Middle East and North Africa, has announced the opening of the first two ‘Centro Hotels by Rotana’ in October 2009 - Centro Yas Island in Abu Dhabi and Centro Barsha in Dubai.

Centro Yas Island, Abu Dhabi adjoins with the Yas Island Rotana hotel, allowing guests to share both hotels’ deluxe facilities. The three-star property comprises 259 rooms and is centrally located within the southern district of the spectacular Yas Island, just a few moments away from the Formula 1 Race Track and The Links Golf Course.

Centro Barsha, Dubai is conveniently located close to the business districts of Media City and Internet City. The three-star hotel features 246 rooms and is also in close proximity to the commercial areas of Sheikh Zayed road and the Dubai Financial Centre.

“We are extremely thrilled about the opening of the first two properties under our exciting new ‘Centro Hotels by Rotana’ brand, which will certainly meet the demands of a new generation of traveller, seeking finesse and functionality at reasonable rates,” commented Selim El Zyr, President & CEO of Rotana.

Conceived by Rotana and designed by LWD, ‘Centro Hotels by Rotana’ signals the start of a bold new genre of hospitality. Centro is a contemporary concept that brings a young, fresh and dynamic environment to low cost business travel.

Appealing to large corporate entities, small and medium business owners, and individual travellers, ‘Centro Hotels by Rotana’ is stylish, chic and affordable business hotel brand.

“We are redefining the conventional concept of economical comfort and offering affordable superior class accommodation and hospitality” comments El Zyr.
