Have now stayed 3 different times in the Kempinski 'Grand' side of this new hotel, mainly for business but also with my wife. Rooms are excellent - good size room & large bathroom, both nicely finished in a modern style - free wi-fi available throughout the hotel & the rooms have all the accessories you would expect from this grade of hotel (tea/coffee, flat screen TV, iron, hair dryer, robes & slippers etc). BTW the beds are really comfy!
The staff are welcoming & friendly & housekeeping regularly service the rooms. My wife was very impressed with the spa & the treatments she had.
Its location as part of & with direct access to the Bahrain City Centre Mall complex is very handy for shopping excursions into the mall & yet still in close proximity to the centre of Manama.
The only downside I could find to this hotel is the restaurants & bars ..... ok but nothing special stands out ..... however, they are very expensive (both combined may explain why they have been pretty deserted every time I have stayed!!) - this is not a major problem, however, since the mall next door has a number of good restaurants, and you are very close to many more good restaurants in the Seef area and a short taxi ride to downtown eateries. Must say, however, that room service was fine & very efficient.
Overall an excellent choice and will definitely stay again.
