Great price which was a fairly quick journey from the airport. Staff were friendly. Was given a room on the top floor on the corner with a nice evening view of the street activity below. The mini-bar was quite well stocked. It was possible to smoke in the room but i preferred to smoke on the balcony. I didn't get... More

I stayed two nights in this hotel. At the reception they help me parking the car, which came out to be free parking. The hotel is extremely well located right in the center, along many busy streets and famous central market. The bedroom was nice, clean, spacious and comfortable. I didn't have any towel or toilette paper, so I had... More

And I like the location too ... down in the Souq area. The off-site parking has always worked out for me too ... although the car park is generally full. They'll squeeze it in somehow. However, like me, this hotel has seen better days. They try to keep it reasonably clean, but you can't escape small visitors in the bathroom... More

I was only at this place for one night. The location is fine if you want to be near the bus station and in the Souk area. If you don't then I guess you should probably chose somewhere else. As you know taxis aren't the cheapest in Bahrain so you should probably limit your usage. The hotel is old and... More

Aside from parking - which to me is very important while you are in Manama souk Area, overall my stay was OK. The Hotel is in the heart of the Manama souk which is walking distance to great places if you are a bargain hunter. Staff - Great Room - Average AC - Great Toilet - Average Location - Great... More

I have stayed in the Awal hotel twice - mainly for its relatively low price ( by Bahrain standards, that is). It is a good central location, and the staff are efficient, but the décor is drab and it isn't somewhere I'd stay for any longer period than two or three nights.

This hotel is a good option for anyone looking for a budget hotel in Manama. Location is great near the Gold City jewelry center and plenty of local places to eat. Room was quiet enough despite being located on a busy street. It was perfectly clean with efficient A/C. Fast wifi in the lobby but did not work in the... More
