Recent guest reviews

Its actually a Okay hotel. Location is not too bad, hotel staff are, hmmm how do i put it... Every little thing they do for us, they want a tip and they are not shameful asking for the money. If i ever visit Bahrain again, will surely not stay here.

Hotel is very traditional & friendly staff specially hotel facility are very good i like the swimming pool of the hotel is very big and rooms are enough comfortable & not expensive its in your budget as well , very near to downtown .

I have spent at this hotel 2 nights about a week ago. Not sure how it acquired 4 stars but it does not deserve more than 2. The rooms look old and outdated. On the bright side, the sheets were clean, the bathroom too and the front desk people were very nice. Had some issues with the WiFi but they were rapidly resolved. I can understand why people would complain about the noise. I was lucky to have my room far from the clubs but I could still hear it. The hotel offers a good price but lower your expectations before getting there.

The hotel looks good, and have all the facilities what you need while in Manama. it's located in the city center, and most of the attractions are within walking distance. The hotel has many in-house dance clubs. But the number of Saudis who come on weekend days make it very difficult for other guests to visit the clubs and do any other activity.

Great location. A few minutes walk to manama bus station and bab Al bahrain souq in either direction. As a backpacker on a budget this was important for me. I arrived at 10am due to an early flight and I was checked in straight away and upgraded. Friendly staff generally. The reception decor is bright... personally I loved it. The room was classic style. Clean but not so modern. The bath tub had some staining but otherwise clean. Nice pool and small sauna and outside jacuzzi... Didn't use them though I planned to. Pool unheated. Surprisingly nice buffet breakfast given past reviews. Breads humous cheeses fruits and hot breakfast. I was in bed before 11pm but personally didn't see any ladies walking the corridor. I could hear music from the hotel bar and nightclub though. However from 10pm in the reception and bars onwards it felt more of a single man's hotel. They gave me a late check out if 2pm too which was a great surprise.

Me & my friend stayed in this hotel stay was really very bad, Reception staff ladies not wishing the Indian guest .check in time not explaining the hotel facilities & the package. reception staff not treated us nicely like a guest. But Mr. Khelid & Ms.Pinky was really very helpful & kind enough to give the hotel information & for their great hospitality. Best rest every thing was fine & comfortable.

This hotel is alive, alongside the souq and part of the night life area. Young mans place maybe no for a family unless they like fun. Great breakfast, welcoming staff, nothing to much trouble. Good breakfast, buffet. Clean pool area.

This hotel is surprisingly nice and near the Souk of Manama. Very friendly staff - look for Ms Elena at the reception to get some tips about best rooms, strong wifi. MS Elena assisted me in so many ways. All the bell hops and the parking attendants are also accommodating. The AC is very strong in our room 246 - a must to have to cope with the Bahrain Heat. The hotel has several clubs and bars if you're interested in these things but this may create some party noises at night

Best value for money, ample parking and the location in Manama. Friendly staff and shuttle service to airport. Check in Is very fast and responsive. Rooms are lil old fashioned but renovated. Beautiful swimming pool area and have kids swimming instructors and ladies instructor. many outlets to unwind and enjoy live music.

Stayed a night. Hotel is old and has 2 storeys but good enough for stay. Was upgraded to room with double bed. Staff were very friendly. Room was big with in-room dining available. Comes with a bath tub. Downside for me ---- no in-room slippers. Hotel is not suitable for families with kids. Loud music from lounge can be heard from 2nd floor, probably ended at 5 am. Freelance ladies can be seen plying corridors. Did not manage to visit lounge, so nothing to write on it. Restaurant food is ok, mostly western. Briyani and Khabsa available. Ok selection of alcohol available from the restaurant. Hotel located directly in front of SAPTCO bus station, convenient for those travelling to Bahrain by bus. A short distance away by foot is the Bab Al Bahrain. No restaurants like TGIF or Outbacks nearby. The Omnibus service terminal is nearby whereby you can take bus to airport.
