Have stayed here two times so far and I really enjoy the hotel. Quiet nights in the room for sleeping. The building is fairly new so the rooms are very clean looking and well maintained. The hotel is not far from the water front ( there is a pedestrian bridge behind the hotel that lets you cross the roadway) and the HARD ROCK CAFE and other types of eateries are within walking distance if you don't want to venture too far at night if you are tired. There's lots to do in Bahrain though, so keep that in mind.
Bahrain allows drinking alcohol even though it is predominantly a Muslim country. There is a small lounge bar in the Holiday Inn Express but it closes at 11:00 P.M. They also have a restaurant on the ground floor and a free breakfast is available which I tried when I first went there. This is the only draw back because I thought the food was just so so; but I see other people writing reviews that liked it. Sure, it's included but to me some of the breakfast items were kind of rubbery, so I skipped it this last time I stayed there. Not a big deterrent to not want to go back and stay though because the rooms, beds, furniture and bathrooms are great. You can drink the tap water which is a plus, but they also have bottled water available and a coffee / tea setup under the room safe.
Free hardline internet is available in the room and pay WiFi is also if you want WiFi in your room. WiFi service is free in the lobby. They provide an internet cord (CAT 5 cable) for the hardline (APPLE owners don't forget your adapter and also to unplug it when you leave. :) ) You will need an electrical adapter which is similar to the English (British) version three prong plug if your laptop does not come with that type plug. Electrical service is 220 volts.
There is a parking garage that some people have complained about; however, it is a nice convenience to have. It is just a little tight to drive in. :)
I highly recommend this place if you get the chance to visit Bahrain.
