This was my first visit to Bahrain and to Kempinski Ixir, very modern hotel, comfortable and professional staff. Connected to the City Center mall and very close to the attractions area. Very classy hotel and recommended for business traveler.

I was at the Kempinski Ixir hotel now for the second time during a business trip. The hotel has a very good standard, the atmosphere is comfortable. Rooms and services are convincing. Very good is the offered breakfast - expensive but good. Positive is the direct access from hotel to the shopping mall. I will come again during my next... More

I stayed here for one night. The hotel was good in general and we enjoyed our stay but honestly I expected more luxury from a Kempinski brand hotel. My reservation has been upgraded to a Junior Suite at the Ixir Tower but I decided to switch back to my original reservation which is a Deluxe Room at the Grand Tower... More

I have very few complains about this hotel and it certainly deserves 5 stars. The food is of a good quality (though the choices are more limited than at the Gulf hotel) and the location has the advatage of being very close to the centre of town and attached to a major shopping centre. My only complaint is that the... More
