The exterior is deceptive and if you are not careful, you could even miss the entrance to this fine hotel. Once inside, you walk in to the spacious reception at the end of a large lounge to be greeted by helpful staff. The check in took minimum time, as they had everything ready. I preferred to pay in advance as I was carrying a lot of Dinars. One felt very secure at the sight of the guard strategically placed covering both the entrance and the lifts. The additional security of inserting the room key card for the lift to work also exists.
The room was spacious enough and equipped with essentials like TV, fridge, tea maker etc. My request for pressing my suit brought an ironing board and iron box promptly. Yes, there is no wifi in the room but the wired connection is quite fast. The only glitch I noticed is that the phone did not work for calling outside and every time I had to get connected by the reception/operator. Although it is a new hotel, they could not rectify or replace the instrument in the 3 days I stayed .
The buffet breakfast in the Great Room was quite satisfying and had a selection of continental and Arab items. The staff there was unobtrusive but helpful.
The location is in a peaceful area and one can walk across to a street which has a large number of eating and shopping places.
Me and my wife enjoyed the hospitality and would certainly go back to Holiday Inn Express, Al Hoora, Manama.
