Dear Mr. Tarsuslugil, Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback. The safety and security of our guests is our top priority and I was extremely concerned to read your comments following your recent stay. Please accept my sincere apologies for the inconvenience and frustration this incident caused to you and your colleague. Please note the report I received indicates that the support and level of priority given to the investigation are quite different to your version. Indeed, the colleague you have reported the incident immediately escalated the matter to his manager who then contacted our Security Department to review the CCTV cameras. We do not have any record of anyone reporting back to you that no one entered the room therefore I would appreciate if you have time to describe that person to me with an estimated time so we can check your statement. After being identified, our Head of Security interviewed the colleagues who entered both rooms (who have been working with us since the hotel pre-opening 3 years ago and who reported numerous lost and found items), and we are honestly confident that the missing items were not taken by any of them. Additionally, full support was given to contact the Police and bring the colleague to the Police station for further investigation. I trust the Police informed you they would go back to you with their findings. Rest assured we take guest feedback extremely seriously and necessary procedure and all possible actions have been taken to understand what may have happened but no evidence of theft were found. I would like to thank you again for sharing your feedback with us and I certainly hope we can be at your service again in the near future. Best Regards, Patrice Cornee General Manager Downtown Rotana, Manama

What are the hotel's rules for smoking? Is it allowed in the lobby, restaurants and pool area? Thank you.
In the majority of the hotel in Bahrain there is a no smoking policy unless they designed smoking area, however I see no problem smoking outside swimming pool. You must take into consideration that during the holy month of Ramadan, smoking is prohibited during daylight hours.

"No tip - the room met all our needs."
"Ask for a corner room (you get a 270 degree view) the main road traffic is busy most of the time so add a bit of time if you need a taxi."
"Hmmm .... they are all good."
"the higher the better"
"We had a view over the pool, I am sure there will be better views but it was nice enough"
