So I read that this hotel is a 5-star hotel. Not so. We've stayed here on 2 separate occasions, and it's simply not up to 5-star standards. Perhaps it's the best in Bahrain, but not 5-star. The hallway carpets are lumpy and uneven, the elevators are slow. The rooms EVEN ON NON-SMOKING FLOORS smell like smoke....this happened to us once... More

A very nice and good place to stay when travelling for business. Professional staff at the SPA, customer focussed, very relaxing and confortable. The only facility tha did not satisfy my expectation was the WiFi connection, somehow difficult and not very reliable. Anyway overall a nice place to stay particularly for a business trip.

Stayed at this hotel on several occasions and with my business being in the Diplomatic area , location was very convenient. During this visit , although very short, I was most impressed with the refurbished rooms which is a great improvement from my previous stay.

Good location in a good area in Manama. Quiet enough to rest well, to enjoy swimming pool, or fitnessing facilities. It is not really near modern malls nor shopping centers for those who look for shopping. Nice food, nice restaurants, nice ambient to me.

Thanks to the team.. Service, response and location of the Hotel was very good to excellence. Just a small note that some furniture need to renew.. I like so much and I appreciate that there was no alcoholic drinks (mini-bar) in the suite.. I extremely appreciated that you provide praying carpet along with copy of Holy Quraan. Thank you all....

Unbeatable offer from the Diplomat and the Royal Golf Club that included round of golf (18 holes), breakfast, RT transportation, room, AND a 50-minute massage, which was great after the round!! Would highly recommend.

I like the location. Few minutes from the air port and few minutes from the city center. Nice well maintained facilities and rooms, nice view from most of the rooms and freindly staff. I love staying at this hotel. I come frequntly either in business or with my family to enjoy hospitality and delicious meals.

There are a lot of nice luxury hotels in Manama, and maybe once this was one of them, but it isn't now. It has a very tired, faded feel to it, from the decor in the corridors, to the food in the uninspiring buffer to the dingy shops in the back corridors of the hotel. Worst of all, for me,... More
