“Decent place”
Reviewed June 3, 2014

Stayed a good 10 days on work. Its a decent quiet place and the interiors have been recently upgraded. Rooms are spacious, modern and clean.
It has a decent gym and swimming pool and both are well maintained.
It has two pub/restaurants (Bennigans with a live band and La Cucina) which are decent but there are better ones around. There are some good pubs and clubs just 10 mins walk behind the hotel.
There is a supermarket opposite the road and a market street a short walk bang across (but hidden by buildings).
Main city centre is on the opposite side of the city and is accessible only by taxi approx 5 BHD. No public transport on this side of the city.
Overall not much to complain about other than the limited TV channels. They should offer a shuttle service to and fro the city centre twice a day since they are a bit far from the city. Surely fuel prices are not to worry about in these countries.

Room Tip: There is not much to see so just get a higher floor (7th and above). Its slightly better view from t...

The hotel is exactly a 4-star.
The crew and personnel are welcoming you and are giving the best of the services. The rooms a correct.
The buffet is a 4-star level and the price for it is correct. Outside pool is small. Wifi is free and good.
An excellent Italian restaurant is adjacent the hotel with a higher price level.

I stayed at this Hotel for about a week.The hotel was booked by my company so I cannot tell you much about the booking process but I am pretty sure it will be easy seeing the efficiency of the Hotel staff.All departments are worth a praise. I travel a lot and stay in so many Hotels and I honestly would say this Hotel has got one of the most courteous and friendly staff.The atmosphere in the Hotel is a perfect blend of contemporary and modern....formal and informal . The rooms are hi tech, good size and well kept.I was on a full board I.e. room breakfast lunch dinner all inclusive. The restaurant called Yalla Yalla in the ground floor of this Hotel had good ambience and provided great selection of multinational cuisine in buffet.The ever smiling and helpful staff made the dining experience even better.The live music on saxophone by a very talented artist enhanced the atmosphere. The locality around this Hotel was not so happening.It was rather quiet.Mostly Hotels.Across the street there was a supermarket and TGI Fridays.There is good hi speed wifi internet free of charge.The television has few choices of channels but does have a multinational choice . To summarise I would say it is a great Hotel to stay.

Positives:

Location is exceptional in the sense that there is a lot happening nearby. You have a restaurant near the hotel, a mall is not far off.

Room was large and the bathrooms were clean. The shower was very nice with both a handheld and a rain shower. Room had all amenities that you look for. The tariff included breakfast and free internet.

Staff are really nice and go out of the way to make you feel better.

Negatives

Breakfast was good but I have seen better spreads. It is a bit away from Manama where my work was but then that is not really bad. The spa was a bit unwelcoming. Internet was intermittent and was not available in most places in the room.

Room Tip: Ask for floors on the higher floor, preferably facing east

Very nice room, good bathroom. Dining / breakfast area a bit sterile, without atmosphere. But there's a great Italian restaurant just outside the hotel "Cucina Italiana", where I had one of the best pizza's ever. They also serve good wine. The breakfast in the hotel is okay, good choices. Personnel is very friendly, trying to give you help whenever you need it. Oh yes, they have curtains which open and close with a remote, I tried them about 10 times, just for fun.... The bathroom has a walk-in shower; it is always a bonus when you don't have to shower in the bath.

We got the best suite room ever in Al Safir hotel. The luxurious suite room is so spacious enthralled with two bedrooms with individual comfort room, a very neat kitchen, spacious living and dining rooms and an indoor swimming pool. This room is located on the 14th floor where you can have a good view of Arabian Gulf and partly of downtown Manama. We find this suite very extravagant, fascinating and comfortable. Your stay is well-compensated in this place. Added bonuses are the accommodating and friendly staff as well as free breakfast. Great value for your money! Try to stay in this suite room and definitely you’ll love and enjoy!
