I recently stopped in Bahrain for business and stayed at the Intercontinental as it was recommended by a colleague.
Upon arrival I was impressed by the vast lobby and cafe area which was great for a coffee or a meeting etc. My approval continued at the checkin counter with the very helpful and friendly staff.
I headed up to find a spacious room which was in immaculate condition. The bed was comfortable and the room had all of the accessories you'd come to expect in a quality hotel. The bathroom was also lovely (especially the choice of shower heads!) and extremely clean.
I made use of the swim and gym facilities during my stay. Again these were in good condition with the gym also having all of the equipment I required.
On one of the nights, I ordered in the room service which was delivered speedily to my door. The service was well presented and tasty.
I also headed to the "Downtown" bar for dinner one night. They had some live music in the bar which added to a nice atmosphere. Once again the food was good and the service attentive. My only criticism of the bar was the open smoking policy. As a non-smoker this makes for a less enjoyable experience!
I took advantage of the breakfast buffet each morning and struggles not to over eat each time! There was a great range of options from freshly cooked omlettes to pastries. This was also the first hotel in the GCC that served pork, a definite bonus in my eyes!
On the whole, I really enjoyed my stay here and would happily recommend it to anyone. Especially as the staff were extremely friendly and always happy to help!
