“Great business/leisure hotel in Juffair”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 31, 2012

This is a preliminary review, so take it for what it's worth. My stay in the K has been wonderful so far. I've been here for nearly a week, and will likely be here for four to five more. To begin, the staff are extremely helpful and attentive, and the rooms are spacious and modern (I'm in a junior suite). The location of The K offers great proximity to many dining and nightlife hotspots outside of downtown Manama. The Hotel's Restaurants are all very good--though not very economically priced, and the gym and pool areas are of 5-star quality. In the rooms, everything is brand new and, as I said, modern. Flat panels with a great selection of English-speaking channels, free (and decent) wifi, and spaciious bathrooms are all a part of the package.

My only gripe is that water tends to pool in one corner of my shower. I believe this is a design flaw as the shower's drain does not appear to be at the lowest point of the shower. Nevertheless, the housekeeper takes care of this small pool every morning. The bathtub, which (as a guy), I've only used once since arriving here, is extremely spacious and relaxing. I'm 6ft (about 1.82M) and 245lbs (about 110kg) and left plenty of space.

I've stayed at "The Gulf Hotel" and "The Golden Tulip" before (both in 2007) and can gladly say that this hotel runs circles around both. I may compare it to The Ritz next time I am out.

Rooms are very spacious, bathroom very clean with great showers. TV coverage s very good with a wide range of channels for different languages. Two bars, sports bar that seems to lack any sort of atmosphere where as the downstairs bar which is friendly and lots of atmosphere but the amount of smoke let's it's down. The Internet in the hotel is slow preventing Skype/FaceTime etc which in this day and age is essential tool for travellers. Wide variety of fast food within 4 min walking time,

However this is my second stay in six months and it didn't disappoint

Firstly the rooms. All are nice and new contemporary style nice furniture. The beds are Asian firm and the pillows very soft, too soft for my liking. The room has to have the key inserted to turn anything on. So when you go out your AC will not work unless you insert a spare key or fold a piece of card in the slot by the door.

The lights are controlled by a panel next to the bed which is also the clock and temp setting for the AC. I spent a while trying to turn the lights off at night before I figured it out.

The bathrooms have a shower which is nice but some people complained the water ran out of the shower and into the room and the carpet got wet? Not sure what as wrong but I didn't have a problem in my room. One odd thing is the towels are stored on a rack that you must climb into the bath tub to get one, then there isn't really anywhere to hang unless you climb back into the tub to hang it up. Very odd. The shower drain did smell quiet badly, but that happens a lot in many countries.

The pool looks great, nice shady areas and good places to sit in the sun. But the sand storm had blown a fine dust over everything. The employees washed the decking several times during the day. Unfortunately they didn't clean the pool, which had cigarette butts and a thin oily film on it. It was cloudy too. That maybe just a one off, but I didn't go it.

The breakfast was disappointing. Everything just tasted a little odd or off. I could only describe it as if it had all been in the freezer too long and had freezer burn. The mushrooms were out of a jar or can, not fresh the fruit was limited to over ripe pineapple and watermelon. The pastries all tasted a little old. I'm not sure if the heat had affected everything but it was all pretty tasteless. Fried chicken livers for breakfast with baked beans and hummus were on the menu. You could have eggs cooked to order and the orange juice was pretty good, but the coffee wasn't.

The staff were friendly and very helpful. This is my first stay in Bahrain so I have nothing to compare it to. It seemed a safe hotel and area to be in.

Room Tip: There can be noise as the locals love to race their cars and motorcycles at night. The noise can ref...
