“Very comfortable hotel with great rooms and polite staff”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2011

I recently spent 6 nights at this hotel while in Bahrain on business.
Upon arrival, the staff was very efficient and attentive. After a grueling 2 days of travelling, they had me checked in and in my room in less than 15 minutes.

I had a junior suite which was clean, spacious and comfortable. In addition to the king size bed, there was a separate full size living room and kitchenette area with a sink, microwave and mini refrigerator. There was adequate closet space for clothing. The room almost felt more like an apartment than hotel room.

The only issue I had was the refrigerator which was packed with hotel supplied beverages (for purchase) and no room for my own. To get around this, I simply took their beverages out to make room for mine and put theirs back prior to check-out.

The bathroom was nicely appointed with the usual accoutrements. Additionally there was a large soaking tub. Despite what carolinecollen posted, I found the towels and face clothes perfectly suited to their task., and I am no petite person. They were comfortable and absorbed well.

Hotel service was very good. On one occasion I needed clothing laundered and within 5 minutes of calling room service someone was there to collect the items. They were returned the following day nicely cleaned and military pressed.

The hotel provides complimentary internet service which was adequate for basic tasks. The bandwidth is inadequate for accessing video/audio sites or conducting any kind of video conferencing (i.e. Skype). After talking to people who live in Bahrain, I think this not so much the hotel's fault as it is a result of the level of internet service in the country overall.

Although I only dined on the hotel once, I found the food and service was very good. Other food choices were available with just a 5 minute walk to American Alley where there is a broad range of food choices including American, Asian, Indian and Middle Eastern.

The hotel is not within walking distance of downtown, malls and other site seeing destinations. However these are easily reached by taxi. Pay close attention to the drivers as some will attempt to price gouge an unsuspecting passenger. Always try to find out ahead of time the average fare to your destination from the hotel staff or on-line.

They provided complementary car service to the airport which was great as it cost me almost $40 for the taxi from the airport.

Overall I found this hotel to be very comfortable with a courteous and attentive staff. I would most definitely stay there again as well recommend it to others.

I went over from Saudi and stayed at this hotel for 3 nights only but was very impressed by the cleanliness and service - nothing was too much trouble for the staff. Both the room and bathroom were large, well-appointed and spotlessly clean - and even the toiletries were good quality. Everything was new.

On my departure date I asked for late check-out and was given till 4p.m. free of charge. The bar was pleasant with friendly staff and I had a very good meal in the restaurant one evening. The location was excellent too.

When prices for a good hotel room are going through the roof in Manama, a weekend out of Saudi quickly becomes a $500-$800 affair- with the bulk of it going towards the room. The K Hotel provides a welcome option to the old standards (Ritz Carlton, Gulf Hotel) at a sensible price. The rooms are nicely appointed and comfortable. The breakfast is quite good with pork bacon available. But, one of the best features of this hotel is its proximity to Adliyah and its many restaurants- you won't have to fight the crazy traffic along the corniche and CBD. Expats living in Saudi make the crawl over th Bahrain for some semblence of normalcy- the K Hotel makes it a bit more affordable, and the location is good.

Room Tip: Some of the rooms don't have a television you can watch from your bed- don't get these rooms...

I regularly travel to Bahrain for weekends as based in Saudi and have stayed at numerous hotels in Manama, including the ritz carlton, the diva etc all 4 and 5 star properties. The K is right up there as a great place to stay.
We stayed one night and were upgraded to a suite , room is well laid out, free wifi, spotless. Great views .
Overall the following .
Great service from front desk to room service, nothing was too much trouble , friendly , smiling accommodating staff.
Room as mentioned well laid , bathroom large with seperate shower/bath. spotless.
Room service quick , sharp and food of good solid quality.
Pool and gym bright fresh, new , great place to while away a few hours.
Late check out given and no problem.

Negatives .. very few. and minor.
being ramadan , no alcohol, so hotel was pretty quite.
Room serice menu could be extended some what , while a number of options avaialble requires less salads and more hot mains.
The towels provided were not of a great quality.

Great property will definitley return!!!

New hotel in Bahrain. We booked a junior suite, as there was a good offer online. The room was very spacious, with a small kitchenette. The bathroom was big, with showe, bidet (first time to see in the GCC) and nice toiletries. The bed was very comfortable. System of AC, lights... very easy to use from a remote control. Flat TV screen, radio en in the bathroom. Free internet, free insite parking, breakfast included. Room with a bar and billiards... nice swimming pool. Modern style and very friendly staff. Very good option in Bahrain.

Its a brand new hotel and it showed when i was staying there, they were still gearing up. The services particularly the house keeping needs lot of improvement. The reception and the restaurants were not ready for high pressures, i hope they would improve quickly.

The location of the hotel is excellent, the room sizes are good for short stays, since i stayed for 10 days i would have preferred little bigger room. I will update some photos later.

Room Tip: Always ask for the City view rooms
