“All the 5-star comforts are here”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 5, 2012

Very luxurious hotel. I practically had everything here. The executive floor comes with free breakfast and and awesome view. The pool is nice and the staff are courteous. Located at the beginning of the hotel area, this place is right in the middle of everything. Its restaurants are first class.

Room Tip: Choose the Harbor view. Otherwise, you'll see the Holiday inn next door.

Stayed here 2011, very nice hotel, pricey by UK standards but not for Bahrain.
Parking a bit of an issue, so ended up paying for valet.
Nice bar that sells draft Guinness.

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.
