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 The hotel is pretty old and the room decor is outdated.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

Accommodation is on the expensive side in Manama and the cheaper end of the market appears to be targeting bookings by the hour (if you know what I mean). But Awal Hotel is comfortable, basic, clean and super convenient - highly recommended. The location in central Manama is hard to beat. The area is full of life and has a... More

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 !
