We booked a non-smoking room but our room had an ashtray. When asking at the reception the room was supposed to be a non-smoking but not in the family section. We noticed that, too. In the hall on our floor were "ladies" sitting and waiting for something or someone... If you are staying in Bahrain for girls only, this hotel... More

This is the perfect hotel for single men looking to have some fun in the city center. Price is ok but the rooms have a tired feel and definetely need renovation. There are a number of bars and clubs that during weekends are full of Saudis looking for companion. Breakfast is not worth it. The best thing about this hotel... More

The hotel is centrally located and is very close to the Souk. The hotel has a tired feel and would benefit from renovation. Numerous bars in the hotel with live music, some of the hotels clientele leave a lot to be desired.

The tariff Is reasonable but the room is too small for the money and charging the additional cost sounds weird. And also the night music sounds terrible. And also the other amenities were not their Swimming pool was under construction.

This hotel is in need a total refurbishment, it looks and feels old. I had the buffet dinner and it was poor quality, barely warm. The first night I stayed there was music banging on until the early hours. On the plus side the wi-fi was good and there was no extra charge for it.

A great place with plenty of happenings around. 5 night clubs, restaurants and great staff. Excellent rooms, spacious lobby, decent breakfast, very close to the city souk, and not far from the city centre shopping area. If a traveller loves night life this is one of it.

This hotel is good value and in good area, very accessible to many things in Manama. The bars and restaurant are very good. All the staff were very friendly and helpful. Check-in and check-out were very fast and efficient. Rooms was comfortable and fairly quiet. There was some traffic noise but nothing that kept me awake. I didn't hear any... More

If you are looking for something which is easy to get to from the airport and the causeway and is reasonably priced then this could be a good choice, Decor in the main part of the hotel is a bit gaudy, rooms are plain but the staff all wear fluorescent purple uniforms so not great if you have had few...
