Even though this is an older hotel, it is still very nice. The easy scheduling of the shuttle to and from the airport was great. The hourly shuttle to the walk in gate of the base is very nice and convenient. The rooms are very clean and mostly modern. The air conditioner works like a charm!!! You can get alcohol... More

We stayed in Gulf Hotel for more than a month. We truly enjoyed our experience. We stayed in a very luxurious 2 bedroom apartment. Staff was extremely friendly and helpful. We enjoyed all the restaurants in the hotel. The food was delicious and the service was excellent. We highly recommend this hotel.

Istitutional hotel with nice service as expected by this kind of facilities. Nice customer care very good for business. With a glimpae of glam more it would be top but it's a good quality for what you pay. Everything works as big hotel for conventions. Spcious bathroom well renovated with a lot of marble and mosaics.

We had dinner on 11th September at Al Waha Restaurant. The ambience was quite impressive. Salad bar was refreshing, with most of the vegetables laid out in different forms.
