“MY ABODE WHILE IN BAHRAIN!!”
Reviewed July 2, 2014

Yes, this is were I have always stayed since I remember starting to travel in to Bahrain from late 2011!!

This is a great hotel, with staff offering excellent service while you stay! Since I became a Platinum member with IHG my stay started being more pleasant here as I now usually get a free upgrade, almost each time I check-in!

What I like most about this hotel is its convenient location, it is not far from the airport but yet in a convenient locale in Manama. It has good restaurants, my favourite of them all is the iNDIAN restaurant Spices.

I like their bar Harvesters too....I love thir gym and the sauna there.....

It is a nice business hotel, what with a spacious coffee shop located right across the lobby, it is convenient for casual chats and friendly meetings.

There is a taxi booth at the far end of the hotel, so it is always easy to call for a taxi!

The internet connection is good and since they upgraded (after their recent renovation) the room decor has far improved.

The rooms are clean and housekeeping staff are well trained and attend to you immediately if you need something.

Overall, I highly recommend you stay here, the next time you visit Bahrain.

If you are heading to Bahrain on business you cannot go wrong with the Crowne Plaza, marginally cheaper than the Intercon (for you IHG members) but boasts a better 'Pub', better breakfast and a better gym.

IHG members treated reasonably well, but beware the false upgrade from the old rooms to the new.

We've been to brunch's in Bahrain several times but this was the first time at Crowne Plaza and we loved it. This is definitely the best brunch on the island at the moment, the food is excellent and I was upset that I only had one stomach. We made friends with the waiter serving our table and tipped him before the brunch started, he made sure we were looked after the whole afternoon, i.e. Champagne, wine, beer, in fact anything we asked for. If you're a non smoker you'll probably chose the non-smoking area, which is quiet with clean air, but I would recommend that you put up with the smoke on this occasion as that's where the band are located and I thought they were great fun. We will definitely be back.

Room Tip: Just the brunch for us, we generally stop in an apartment.

During many years when I was in Saudi Arabia I was a regular customer, twice a month. My last visit was in 2010,After 4 years I went again to this hotel, and I found the same ambiance, the staff courtesy, same good quality of services and food. I will go again. One suggestion, guest should be informed on arrival that they need to book for the Friday's brunch, but thank to the management we were accommodate in the waves restaurant

I stay in lots of CP's and IHG group hotels.
My room in the new wing was very modern and comfortable but for some reason was not a nice place to be. However it was much nicer than the bar which had a very dubious clientelle and was an uncomfortable place to be. Perhaps I am just not cut out for the "nightlife" of Manama but would not return here out of choice.
Breakfast was great though and service was generally good.

I first stayed at this hotel in 2002, and have been back a few times since then mainly for business meetings or dinners but not for accommodation. I was pleasantly surprised during my current stay that they have upgraded their rooms and amenities recently.

The hotel is welcoming and the staff very helpful and dependable. The food is good and they can definitely improve on both their buffet and a la carte offerings.

The fitness center is well equipped, yet the treadmills are limited to 3 and can be replaced by more modern ones.

Internet connection is excellent and almost covers all the hotel facilities.

All in all it is a very good choice for accommodation if you have business in Bahrain in the diplomatic area or around the center.
