InterContinental Regency Bahrain
Ranked #1 of 136 Hotels in Manama
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed March 10, 2013

The Intercontinental Regency Bahrain is fairly typical of a luxury hotel and meets expectations. Professional staff and service. I did have one interaction that I was unhappy with but is not worth further mention.

The bar/lounge has a well stocked bar and a number of beers on tap. On tap they have Kilkenny, Somersby Apple Cider, Fosters, Carlsberg, Guinness, Heineken, Budweiser, Stella Artois, Miller Light, Kronenburg 1664 and Kirin Ichiban. For bottles they have Corona, Coors Light, Peroni, San Miguel, Grolsch, Holsten, Becks, Smirnoff and Edelhopfen. The draft beers are 3 BD. I was pleased to see Kirin on tap. One minor detail was the glasses for the Stella Artois was not up to expectations for a luxury hotel. The gold trim on the lip of the glasses were mostly flaked off, the devil is in the details. The smoking was a slight bother but not too bad and the live band was decent.

The hotel is a short walk to the old souq and sort of a middle location to explore the Bahrain Fort and the Al Fatih Mosque/Bahrain Museum. Good location to explore from. A taxi from the airport on the weekends/holidays should be just under 7 BD.

i stayed at this hotel in Feb 2013 and was most impressed with the excellent service provided by the staff, who really do go out of their way to meet all of your accommodation needs. There is a great fitness center in a connecting building which i guess is the regency. The room service food is pretty good, if not great. the decor is traditional mixed with some modern touches, but just a bit shy of real 5 star modern contemporary style. the location is convenient but it is the kind of hotel that requires a taxi ride to go anywhere.

I have spent a weekend with my family and found the greatest service you can expect from the staff to make my stay very special. In addition the property and new swimming pool is just excellent.
I recommend it for business as well as pleasure hotel to stay at .

Room Tip: Executive floor is really nice

We stayed here in this hotel during our weekend trip in Bahrain last december for one night and i can say it is really an amazing experience. The staff was very nice and friendly. We had a nice chat with the staff. The room was great. I can never forget the food in Legendz as it was soooooo yummy. Will surely come back to this hotel.

I have stayed at this hotel with my family on February 21, 2013 for one night. All I want to say is that all was great from the reception moment to departure. Very professional staff, excellent food and the suite was great. I got an immediate upgrade as expected and we caould not have wished for a better night.

My husband and I stayed here for the weekend the the service was helpful and friendly. the rooms exceptional clean and the bed very comfortable, with a walk in shower that was large. We went to the Downtown bar located in the hotel which had a great band and dinner in the steak restaurant and I have to say it was the best steak we have had for a long time. The hotel is in the heart of Bahrain. We had a fabulous time and would recommend this hotel to anyone.

This was my first time in the intercon bahrain since it was refurbished. The rooms were totally brand new and the service was excellent. Proper A to Z refurbishment.
Very attentive and helpful staff.
The location is by the old souq and bab albahrain. It's very close to the diplomatic area as in 2 minutes away.
