I stayed here for 4 nights for a business trip with a colleague. The hotel is really nice, all marble floors, nice swimming pool and spa attached. Although it is a 5 star hotel, I would say it looked more a 4 star compared with European hotel standards. We were up on the 10th floor in the Executive rooms with... More

Badly needed a weekend escape from work in Saudi Arabia...so I flew to Bahrain like other expats do from time to time. I chose the hotel as it was a part of a chain I was familiar with and I am glad I did. The food service was good, the turn down of the bed at night was a nice... More

On arrival the reception staff were very welcoming, however they fired all the hotels info at me at once and I never got the chance to digest it all. My partner was flying out to meet me and had already booked the hotel. I then booked in the night before and asked at reception if I could have the same... More

Everything there was really good: the room, the staff, the services provided. I stayed in a suite and the space was really good and enough for three people. The kitchen is very nice and it's good for small family. I am sure going back to stay there.

I stayed in this hotel for 2 nights. Room and bath were clean and spacious enough. But slippers were missing which is quite important for me. Breakfast buffet was really satisfactory as usual in other chain hotels in the region. I can recommend this hotel.

The best thing about this hotel is the new part where they have the mini apartments. They are nice , you get your own kitchen . The buffet restaurant is ok , the bar outside is nice on a cooler evening for a drink . There is a sleazy pub type place with cold beer and loud music some might... More

My stay was for 1 day only but I wanted to extend more just for the service I am receiving from their team. First, I have to commend their efforts for anticipating every need that I or my colleague may need. The perfect smiles that greet me everytime and the willingness to serve - it is rare to achieve and... More

Stayed here on business in December 2014. From check-in onwards, the service was professional and friendly. Food at breakfast and lunch was very good quality and staff very efficient. I upgraded to a club room, which gives access to the excellent lounge for drinks and snacks in the evening. The room is managed by a charming Nepalese woman (sorry I... More
