One of the challanges in picking a ME hotel is that the price does not always guarantee the best results but in this case a reasonable weekend rate provided an excellent venue with first class accomodation and excellent food. The terrace bar was very well managed at night but waitress service for food with only a few customers was dreadful.... More

I had a business trip last week to Bahrain and stayed at the Diplomat for two nights. Great room; great hotel; great staff. No complaints. The room is large, clean and quiet. The breakfast is not great and can be enhanced with more varieties. Overall, great experience.

Went there for a weekend chill out from Saudi Arabia. The hotel is in the Diplomatic Quarter of Manama close ti the waterside. From one side of the hotel you have an excellent view over the small bay, a treat in the morning when you wake up and open the curtains. It is a wonderful place to stay, the pool... More

I came for a meeting and a conference at the hotel and was pleased with the overall ambiance and hotel experience. The food and food choice was very good. The staff and waiters at the breakfast restaurant were exceptionally courteous. I may return to the hotel for a leisure trip also !

This is a very nice hotel and we enjoyed our time there. The rooms are comfortable, with plenty of room. The spa is very nice and the people very pleasant. We stayed on the Club floor and we enjoyed the Happy hour with snacks and drinks both nights.

After a pleasant 5 hour drive from Riyadh, we arrived at The Diplomat. Drove around for a while and eventually found the underground car park. Not the biggest car parking spaces I've seen and as I have a Ford Expedition, glad it was quiet! Checked in early and very efficiently by Jacky. The suite was very comfortable, nice lounge, kitchen... More

The hotel itself is ok. Typical Middle East hotel, lots of marble and kitch. Rooms overly air-conned. Zero charisma from the staff or indeed the decor. However it's main let down is the fellow guests. It's full of USA navy and military. On all occassions I have stayed there. They occupy the pool area and bars with arrogant, loud, opionated... More

For the price, it was a very good experience. Not very close to the city center however. The staff was very friendly a and the pool are was well maintained with plenty of outdoor seating. Although slightly dated, the rooms and the property was very well maintained.
