After that long journey, it was a pleasure to have the opportunity to stay at the Gulf Hotel Bahrain for three nights. It is my hotel of choice in Bahrain.

This has always been my first choice when staying in Bahrain. Beautiful luxurious 5 star hotel, has never disappointed. Even to the point of needing an extention cord in my room, this hotel and the exceptional staff have accommodated.

Good restaurants and good attentions, but the service at the pool was very poor, only one person serving and get the food after one hour...same for drinks too much waiting time. During the breakfast the restaurant is too crowded, this was a better hotel before... Additionally the beds are very bad, not good for sleeping...

After much debate my husband & I chose the Gulf Hotel as an overnight stay to celebrate our first wedding anniversary. We were familiar with the high standard of hospitality & good food offered by the Japanese restaurant in the hotel, but reviews on tripadvisor were mixed with regard to accommodation. We chose to book a platinum room with access... More

Gulf Hotel is a medium class hotel. Design and building is old ! Location is good near everything .. actually Bahrain is small country. Rooms are small but enough for a business trip or couple visiting for few days. Food in Bahrain overall is not good.and in hotel also. I give the hotel 3 stars and i recommend it.

Most of the staff at hotel were professional in their approach. WiFi throughout the hotel has good connectivity but the line speed was not that spectacular. Variety of restaurants throughout the hotel gives the flexibility of multi cuisine options.
