Love this hotel. After a long hiatus, I returned to the Diplomat last Friday for their weekly Friday Brunch. Was really impressed with the changes. A huge selection of tasty food from around the world, fun atmosphere, great live music from a South African/reggae duo, and the staff really tried their best to accommodate. Live cooking stations ... mexican, pizza,... More

I have been crossing the causeway from KSA for three years now and this hotel is by far my favorite. The location is central to all Bahrain has to offer but in the least crowded and cleanest neighborhood of the Diplomatic area. The service and the spa are wonderful and Fiddler's Green is my favorite bar in the city. The... More

The Diplomat Radisson Blu is located on the Diplomatic area of Manama, Bahrain which can create some confusion identifying the best way in, but once at the hotel the valet can resolve any parking issues quickly - and is recommended for parking your vehicle. The rooms are all well appointed and most are recently upgraded; beds are comfortable and the... More

The hotel has a nice location near the airport which is just 15 minutes away and also near downtown manama, they have excellent food in the restaurant and bars with modern gym facilities and a nice big pool. The hotel is also since you can see the swa bay and airport from a distance.
