This hotel is not new or remodeled. What you are getting is a good location in the old city near the souq for a very low price. The quality is pretty good accordingly. 17 BD for a single or about $45 per night incl tax. If you expect 5 star for that price then shame on you! This hotel has... More

I booked in and used the confirmation telephone number and called on Skype for a taxi. The fellow was there waiting for me at 2 am. I checked in and got the Wi-Fi code. The lift was clean and polished stainless. The corridor told me this place was from the 50s - maybe, but CLEAN. Everything was washed, pressed and... More

We had a few days off from school and we decided as a family to spend it in Bahrain. We got excellent rates at the hotel - BD 35/- for a two bedroom suite. The rooms were spacious and very clean. The hotel has a comfortable parking for the car and is in a decent and peaceful locality. There are... More

I stayed for two nights at the Awal Hotel in January 2014, booking via the Internet and paying 34 Bahraini dinars in total (around 55 pounds sterling). Breakfast, costing BD 2.500, was an additional charge. I thought that this represented pretty good value for money. The hotel is located near the Gold Souq and Bab al Bahrain in the heart... More

The Bab Al Bahrain and souk is located nearby. The reception guy was so kind. I cannot speak arabic, so asked him about taxi. He called an english-speaker driver. Thank you !

The staff were very helpful and though my flights were very late in the night but was picked up on time bothways at a nominal rate. The room rate was very reasonable with B&B. The hotel was quiet with no much activity. There is no spa, gym or pool services; so its not very ideal for a pleasure visit. Overall... More

Stayed for 2 days but wasn't in the hotel all the time. Staffs are friendly and helpful. Most facilities are in good condition. Good breakfasts. Convenient airport transfers. Very near to tourist attractions and delicious asian cuisine. But one thing I dislike, that my friend and I had to sit near the doorway to get internet connections. I purposely choose... More

Hotel Awal is centrally located in the traditional part of Manama. Friendly and helpful staff, fast check-in, spacious rooms, and a certain old world charm make the hotel a great and comfortable base from which to explore the nearby souq, the waterfront, restaurants and several large malls. The hotel provides a pick up service from the airport (minimal charge), as... More
