I booked this hotel because of some of the reviews I read about Awal Hotel and because it was inexpensive. My room was on the fourth floor and was very noisy because I was on the main street side. In retrospect I should have asked for a room toward the back of hotel and on a higher floor. The hotel... More

Before booking, I read a lot of the reviews from fellow trip advisors, and had an uneasy feeling about going ahead, but I went anyway. Big mistake. We were in Manama for a very brief stay and decided to choose the Awal as several reviewers had claimed it would be a good value for the money. As of today, I'll... More

Hi, I stayed for 2 nights in this hotel; chose it as you may consider a family hotel somewhat! Didn't bother with the breakfast there; also didn't consider the bathrooms upto date! Pricewise it's cheap and pretty much sets the look of the hotel aside! Taxis are easily available just outside the hotel!

Still not sure if I should give it 3 or 4 but I think 4 is the rate they get because of the overall value. I did like the big room, balcony, quiet on the 6th floor, the very central location and everything was working and not having to ask for help. I did feel the whole hotel was very... More

Cheap hotel that's well situated, staff were pleasant, wifi was fast, rooms were clean, the food was average and the "taxi service" was cheap even if we did drive through two building sites (was a fun experience). Well worth the money if i was in the area would definitely stay again.

I found the service excellent. Matters were dealt with in a friendly speedy manner. The air conditioner let through a smell that was not good. I would highly recommend this hotel with its value for money, excellent location and friendly staff.

Stayed 1 night at BHD17. Taxi from airport BHD3. Centrally located to Souk and Post Office taxi rank. Spacious room and bathroom. Water pressure a little on the light side. Wifi was perfect at all times. Small balcony off room. Bed a little firm but a good nights sleep after a big day out. Sites are spread out so if... More

Room was large with a tiny balcony. Good location - near the souk. There is free wifi. The staff is helpful. And if you need a taxi to the airport - have them arrange it with no hassle - all for only 5D.

Parking around the hotel can be a bit exasperating, but once you're through the door the staff are friendly and you get to drop your gear off fast enough. You're over here for freedoms anyhow, and a place to sleep. The rooms are dated, but functional. The TV wasn't really watchable until after a lot of faffing around setting the... More

I chose the Awal Hotel due to its proximity to the Manama Souk. The streets outside the hotel are full of character and there's plenty of eateries and cold stores nearby. But I digress. The hotel is pretty old and the room decor is outdated. But it makes for a decent stay if you're not picky and want a cheap... More
