The Diplomat has all one needs, especially if you stay on the executive floor. The executive lounge was perfect for unwinding as well as quiet meetings. The fitness room could be better, which is why I do not give this the highest rating.

Room Tip: executive floor.

Make sure when your thinking of a top stay in Dubai to put this hotel as your first choice. A very relaxing experience, beautiful hotel and really friendly staff.

Room Tip: Royal club is great, floor ten.

I have spent almost 10 days in this hotel in January 2012. The Staff are extremely helpful. The room was wide enough and very clean. The food in Oliver restaurant is very nice and cheap as well. The Gym and Spa are excellent. The receptionist in the Spa (Miss Wiam) is very professional and friendly. The hotel sets in a very nice area close to everything you need.

As someone that spends between 70-100 nights a year in a hotel ( 97% of those in Raddison group club carlton ) , I found the pricing way over the top . NO breakfast , no businesss lounge ..left feeling that the Raddison in BAH should take a long hard look at other group hotels who actually do delivery value for money and great service.

Nothing wrong with hotel or staff .....just management need to look at the packaging of the brand in BAH.

As my stay in this hotel goes on everyday it gets worst. I am on a business trip and is currently staying in this hotel for 45 days. The house keeping almost, always do a half job. Te toilet is dirty when I arrive from work, tub has not been wiped down, for the price I would expect better and quality service. The "Lady's Spa," that is suppose to be open until 10pm, always shut down at maybe 8pm. That is inconsiderate if people who work late and actually work out. At 9:30 after having to preheat the sauna myself they started doing contracting jobs to the ceiling. What happen to the 10pm. No privacy in the spa. I would not recommend this hotel to anyone else. As a matter of fact I have a colleague who has thought of this hotel, bad idea.

Room Tip: Maybe the "Elite," hotel.

I am writing this review as I am currently staying at the Diplomat Raddison Blu Hotel.
I have been here for nearly a week, and I have to say I am so pleased and happy with everything.
The friendliness and professionalism of the staff is wonderful, most of them seem to come from the Philippines or India and they are very well trained and incredibly customer service oriented.
There are at least three different restaurants here in the hotel all of them very well priced and the food is excellent.
I am a vegetarian and they have dealt with my strange requests in a wonderful way.
The average price for a main meal in the hotel restaurant is about 4 Bahraini Dinars, which is approximately £8 pounds.

The hotel itself is only 10 minutes by taxi from the airport and is within very easy striking distance of all the main sites and shopping mlls within Bahrain.
My room is on the eighth floor and is huge, with a king-size bed and a lovely study area and a magnificent bathroom.
There is free very fast WiFi in all of the bedrooms and reception areas.
there is also a fantastic gymnasium and spa complex with everything you could wish for, all free for guests, with the exception of the massages which are reasonably priced
All in all I am delighted with this hotel
Gerard

Room Tip: Ask for a high floor to get a good view
