This is a real gem of a hotel. Try the Platinum Suites for excellent comfort and access to the Platinum lounge where Rochelle, Madeline and the rest of the ultra friendly staff will ensure you are well looked after. They are all just great. You cannot miss La Pergola Italian restaurant. Fabulous, fabulous, fabulous! The lovely Parween and her colleagues... More

The Gulf Hotel has been wonderfully renovated. Rooms are spacious with beautiful views of the city. Great service all around especially by Krishna Kumar in the Al Waha Restaurant who was very gracious and efficient.

The Gulf Hotel is a stalwart on the Manama skyline... I have stayed here several times and I am a member of their prestige club which is a great initiative and helps with discount on food and beverages. The staff are polite and always helpful but it certainly is the constant noise from construction work that is letting the side... More

Wow, stunning hotel! Read my other hotel reviews and you'll see I don't say that easily! The entrance up the escalator is quite breathtaking, reception desk service fast and efficient and the staff warm and welcoming. The foyer area is very well appointed without being garish. A great welcome and a good sign of what's to come. The room was... More

One of the Best Hotels in Bahrain. High End. Rooms are not that big. Also Shower is small. No hand shower in the shower cubicle. Gymanasium / Health club is very good. Open from 6 am onwards. Room rates expensive and Airport Pick-Up/Drop is also chargeable.

I stayed at the Gulf hotel for 14 days. Every morning at 6:30 am was woken up by construction on the nearby addition. The Wifi service was atrocious. No chance at all of conducting business. The gym has dated, off-brand equipment. The service was fantastic, but no different from anywhere else in Manama where service always comes first. I am... More

The hotel has several restaurants and entertainment options, with a pool, spa, health club, etc. Price is average for Bahrain 5 star hotels, and some weekend packages are available.

On the positive side this hotel is close the the centre of town, boasts many great restaurants and the rooms are comfortable. I'm also impressed with the other facilities such as the pool.
