“The hotel has been renovated, so pre 2010 comments are not really valid.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 11, 2013

I am staying here on business, and will be for another month. This was not my choice of Hotel as the customer booked it for me as it was close by, but I haven't felt the need to move.
The hotel is clean and well presented, very friendly staff and the whole area around the hotel has obviously recently been built.
The room I have is not huge, but its a single room so you get what you pay for, very comfortable double bed, good shower and quite a few English tv programs, movie channels if you want to stay inside.
There are numerous restaurant options here and also a 24hr bar, nightclubs and everything you may or may not want.
If you are looking for some peace and quiet then maybe not a good choice, although I have never really noticed any.
The position is also good, only 5 minutes walk to a food street which has everything you could wish for if that's what you like (i.e Pizzas, KFC, MacD's, Burger King etc).
Very reasonable price and think I will be staying.
Only down side is they don't have a licence to show EPL Footie, they have told me next season they will get it, but just 5 minutes down the road at their sister hotel there is an Irish bar showing all the games.
Overall can't complain, plenty to do here.

Room Tip: Higher floors will keep you away from the 2nd floor nightclub noise.

It is below normal with large rooms. It is not suitable for families or children.

It's location is good where you can go by 15 min walk to restaurant pharmecy or supermarkets.

The hotel is old and has a bad smell everywhere

Juffair is a most sought after location in Bahrain for a leisurely stay whether with family or with friends or even alone. Great night club activities and restaurants are concentrated on this zone of reclamation created entirely for tourism. Ramee group has a number of hotels in this area. Ramee California is among the newest of the hotels with great bars for those who have a taste for wine, buzzing night life and fantastic band associated with the bars. Restaurants of Ramee group themselves are quite a few in the area. We preferred to walk across to the other older Ramee hotel which is equipped with more bars and great choices of buffe breakfast. Stay is extraordinary. Spacious rooms and cosy corners with sea view and city views. A great place to stay.

I have travelled all over the world for the last 24 years staying in many good and bad hotels. The California Hotel, Bahrain, I have to say, by far, is the very WORST I have ever stayed in. It was filthy, noisy, dusty, scruffy, smelly and quite obviously a glorified brothel! Im sorry, I cannot phrase it any better than that.
Stay there at your peril!!

This hotel has to be the worst and dirtiest hotel I have ever had the misfortune to stay at, mold in the bathroom, windows that have no screens and would not close allowing the mosquitoes from the landfill across the street to swarm in my room, no bedside lights, raw sewage bubbling up thru the bathroom floor when the toilet was flushed, towels were dirty, carpets were stained, all rooms were smoking, business center consisted of one old computer that did not work, satellite TV consisted of 1 english channel, no gift shop. The hotel advertises overlooking the Arabian Sea, there was no way to see anything, there were no streets, just rubble. Its entertainment was on the banned list for the US base personnel. There were many females of a questionable occupation and the noise and traffic inside the hotel went on all night. In one word this place is a DUMP with no security. It advertises a mini bar, none in my room, pickup at the airport was a pickup truck and a minivan, the vault box had no access. In one word, this place is a DUMP. I've stayed at better hotels in 3rd world countries, stay clear of this place.
