“Good place for business visitors”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 9, 2014

A good business hotel in Manama. Closer to airport and the facilities are good. The staff is nice and friendly as are the people from Bahrain ! Slightly away from the city centre and convenience stores and a bit overpriced but overall a good place for business travellers for short stay.

The facilities are very good, and the service is outstanding. The staff accommodated every request, from early check in to late check out. They were all very friendly. The room was very large and comfortable, the hotel is in a great central location and has good restaurants, pool and gym.

Every time I stay at the Radisson Blu my experience is always great and positive about this hotel. From service, friendly staff, welcoming and helpful. Nice big clean rooms that has everything. Pool bar is great thx to Mr Alan and his Co workers. Spa is relaxing. Ms. Feda at the front desk always provides A great service along with her Co Workers. Location is good. Just an advice to the coming guests read your booking well before going to eat breakfast there is a BIG chance its not included so you don't get surprised on the way out that you have to pay, Also the hotel staff at least should mention this to the guest. See you Next time Radisson Blu

I'v been staying in this hotel for at least 5 or 6 times now during short missions to Bahrain and it is extremely conformable place to stay and relax after hard labored days… The rooms are large and cosy, wi-fi is free and unlimited, coffee, tea and water provided daily. The pool is large and very suitable for laps and enjoying the swim. The staff is very kind and helpful, room service quick and reliable which is very enjoyable. There is room for improvement for the breakfast, given it's extremely varied (maybe a bit too much), quality is a bit sacrificed in the process...

Each time I come back, the staff recognizes me and during one of my visits, there wasn't any rooms left because of the Formula One tournament (not really my cup of tea but apparently it's quite a success in Bahrain), they upgraded me to their Royal section, a nice touch for a regular client.
Definitely a hotel to keep in mind for staying in Manama-Bahrain.
