The room was booked as a club room and was smaller and more dated than expected for money paid. The air conditioning was too warm and did not sleep well for first two nights. It was eventually cooled to bearable after 4 complaints to reception and other staff. It was fixed when the duty manager called me and dealt with... More

an easy going and familiar place. I like staying there. We are not talking about the Ritz here, but it is a nice place and you can feel comfortable. The service is great and everyone has a huge smile on the face. The restaurants can be better, but the local guys working in the hotel are delightful and extremely friendly.

I love staying the Diplomat Radisson Blu Hotel in Bahrain for New Year's Eve. The hotel was decorated so nice and festive for Christmas.

This is by far the best hotel I've ever stayed in. The staff at the hotel is truly amazing. I wish to specifically recognized Mr. Mohammed for always taking great care of me.

Even though it was hot daily, the Diplomat made every effort to remind their guest it was still Christmas. I felt at home away from home and enjoyed the entrainment outside by the pool area. The Reception, housekeeping and restaurant staff was always pleasant. Great hugs for the bar staff for putting up with so many drunken guest after hours.... More

The only reason I have not given five stars is that the room did not have the sparkle of other 5 star hotels in the Gulf. However the food was excellent with great choices. The breakfast buffet was opulent if a little pricey. I enjoyed the Irish bar as a way of watching some sports whilst chatting with some fellow... More

The hotel is in the financial district of Manama but close to the airport and still a decent location. Older hotel but kept in good condition. Good sized gym/spa and nice pool area too. Short taxi ride to the shopping malls. Rooms were average with bottled water daily.

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
