There are some good things about Elite Seef but overall i find it hard to say it is much more than average. The rooms are reasonably large and reasonably well equipped, so particurlarly if you are staying in Bahrain a while it is a cost effective place to stay when compared to a hotel. I paid 1000 BD (approx €2,000) to stay in a 2 bedroom apartment for a month, so although cheaper than a hotel, it is still not cheap. Other people told me they paid 900. The furniture is adequate, but think Ikea cast-offs. I notice, one reviewer talked about wooden floors. Yes, it's true, but it really is the cheapest and tackiest wooden flooring available. Seef is an ok part of town to stay also. It has some high end shops are restaurants nearby, but it lacks the life you can find in more central parts of Manama. The staff are friendly without being superb. The gym is quite small and fairly basic. There were 2 running machines but one was broken for my entire stay, so it was difficult to workout because the gym was quite busy. The pool area outside is fine. I since moved and found much nicer serviced apartments. I'll probably be accused of being a plant if i say where, so if you are interested just contact me.

It's a very comfortable hotel with spacious rooms or more like apartments. It's location is the only draw back, because it's slightly out of the way from where the action is. It'll cost you about 15 Euros to get into town by taxi. Regardless, it's good place to spend the weekend or longer.

Prior to booking I cross checked the hotel's web-site for prices and that of the travel agent I use in Jeddah. The travel agent definitely had the better rate, by about 20%.

Since we stayed at Elite 5 several years ago, we have been staying at the Seef Residence ever since....

Love the apartment with modern decorations (hardwood floors) and all the electronic equipment (CD boom box, DVD player and cable tv )and appliances (washer/dryer in kitchen)you could wish for.

Bathrooms getting a little worn... but still useable.
Have a business center where you can check your email/use Internet.


Sports center and lovely pool....

Staff are eager to please.
