My husband and I are the kind of travellers who like to get out and about when travelling. The hotel is simply a place to dump some luggage and crash at the end of the evening to recover from a day of exploring. Although difficult to initially find, and a little noisy in the later hours, it was a reasonable place to stay in a city with such contrasting accommodation availabilities. Being a couple, we wanted to avoid the more 'salubrious' budget hotels, but didn't want to fork out the big bucks for the luxury places. A firm bed, a shower, toilet and mirror were all available. A little musty, damp smelling and looking like it might have been a good-looking place in the 80s, it's worth just crashing there for a weekend trip to Bahrain. Very central location, and an easy base to walk from, or drive from if you have a rental car. Helpful staff, free breaky (though not great) and placed in an area reminiscent of Old Dubai. Not bad for young couples, though it's always best to stick to referring to yourselves as "husband and wife" in the Middle East if unmarried.
