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

The location of the hotel is right in the heart of Manama. It's a short stroll from the souk and Bahrain gate.The hotel was clean but dated, but very good value. The staff were friendly and helpful. I could not find the driver at the airport for my pick up but it was easy to get a taxi. There was... More

I had stayed in this hotel for 1 week. The rooms are ok and within your budjet. It is in the heart of city and easy access to all places. Please have food from outside as the charges for food in the hotel is high. Otherwise the stay was nice and wifi is also good .

The room in general at the 6th floor was fine & clean considering the price although there were only 2 pillows for me & my wife. We asked for 2 more but gave only 1 which really stinks and the water pressure was very low. Maybe it would be fine if you do not have your car with you because... More

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.
