I stayed in this hotel for a short break and had a ball.. Got a free upgrade on arrival, it was my friends birthday and the staff presented to our room with one of the tastiest richest chocolate cake I ever had..

Surviving in any hotel on a Formula 1 race weekend is a challenge. We were pleasantly surprised that the staff remained calm and generally pleasant. The restaurant(s) staff were tremendous. The opulent entry is a wonderful sight and gives hope for lavishly appointed rooms. The rooms, while well appointed and clean, are dated and slightly worn. Thankfully our room was... More

My boss suggested I stay here. There is not really much in my opinion that is 5 star about this place. The crew working the front desk when I checked in were just plain rude.

Approximately 14 years ago I had a choice to stay at the Radisson SAS Diplomat or the Gulf Hotel in Bahrain and thankfully chose the Diplomat. Work recently gave me an opportunity to revisit Bahrain so I thought I would book the Gulf. Sadly I wished I hadn't. I picked it mainly for the location, the pool and rooms also... More

The service we received from when we checked in to when we checked out was second to none. The staff in every area of the hotel were very courteous and helpful. Our room was maintained to a high standard. An excellent choice at breakfast. Fusion restaurant is a must for any visitor. Will certainly be coming back.
