Golden City Plaza: Fully Furnished Apartment

We stayed for 5 days in Golden City Plaza. About 20 minutes drive to reach Manama City Center. Bit hard to locate if it would be your first trip to Bahrain.

The apartment itself is very nice...2 big rooms, 2 bathrooms, a living room, dining room & kitchen. Other amenities like television with satellite dish, gas range, washing machine,refrigerator, plates, glasses etc are all provided.

Though they provide towels, it is more hygienic to bring your own.

Grocery, retsaurants and hospital are just nearby.

Regency Intercontinental: The concrete and glass cube

This big parallelepiped is located near the city centre and the living part of Manama; no surprises, with accommodation and a quite friendly staff; bar on the first floor where it seems easy to make some new “friends” (not only the usual Asiatic or Russian ladies, also drinking friends), but the beer is OK.

If on business trip, I can recommend this hotel for its very convenient location.

Crowne Plaza: gloomy crowne

This hotel is located a bit outside the city , near the Museum; I stayed there on a business trip and it was good for it; at the lobby level is a quite noisy bar where a Filipino band performs every night; another bar on a side wing is dedicated to sports (on TV) where you can have a good choice of beers. Like most of these 4-5 star hotels, it is a bit gloomy and there are no surprises.

All usual facilities for business hotels.

Gulf Hotel: Dreadful Service For A Five Star

We had great expectations for this hotel but were rather disappointed. Despite arriving several hours after the earliest check-in time, our pre-booked room was not ready and we were told (ratehr than asked) to wait. After raising objections to this, we were offered an upgrade but they wanted to hit us for a considerable hike in the room rate for it. The reception staff were incredibly rude but eventually they agreed to upgradedus for no extra charge. The upgraded room was supposed to be deluxe but it was really substandard - the safe did not work, there was nowhere to plug in the kettle without shifting a heavy desk, the mini bar had not been restocked, the furniture was really cheap and nasty and the bathroom suite was a grotesque shade of 70's chocolate brown! The beds were comfortable enough and the view was okay. At 3am on the second night we were awoken by an alarm going off but we never managed to establish what it was, and on the next day there was loud banging from the floor above for about an hour early in the morning. The breakfast buffet was not very special (the Diplomate had a more impressive one) and the waiter service was really slow. The pool was nice but the adjoining jacuzzi was full of kids despite the fact that there was an excellent kids pool with fountains and slides. Again the service was sloppy and there are not nearly enough parasols available. Getting an apple pie in the tea lounge took half an hour by which time the tea was cold. The Iranian restaurant was good though with good service, excellent food and live music that didn't damage your ear drums. The English pub was okay too with an excellent reggae band and a good selection of drinks.
In all honestly, I thought the Diplomat was a much better hotel as it has nicer rooms, friendlier service and a better breakfast buffet although the pool surroundings are not as nice as at the Gulf.

Beautiful swimming pool with pool bar, jacuzzi (albeit full of kids) and waterfall.
Lovely kids pool with fountains and slides.
Excellent Iranian restaurant.
Fun staff in the English pub with excellent live music.
Rude check in staff.
Rooms never available on time - everyone we saw trying to check in were told that the previous room occupants had not vacated despite the check out time having expired hours previously.
Generally substandard service for a five star hotel.
Ugly 1970's decor in bathroom.

The Regency Intercontinental Hotel: Another Hotel in Bahrain

The Intercontinental Hotel provides adequate service with full amenities. The hotel, however, is in need of renovation. The lobby and room furniture seem somewhat old and reminiscent of the '80s, and, to me, the building itself looks like a prison (see photo)! This hotel is a good alternative when the Ritz Carlton is fully booked.

Adequate gym and outdoor pool are available. A lively bar with live music is available on the mezzanine level. The hotel is very close to the Manama souk and the business district.

The Ritz-Carlton: Manama's Best Hotel

Not only is the Ritz Carlton Bahrain's best hotel, but also the only top quality one and will remain so until the new Four Seasons is completed around 2008. The hotel is the place to stay and it offers five star amenities in the rooms, as well as a private beach, a wonderful spa and fitness centre, fun bars and excellent restaurants. Make sure to reserve a room well in advance as the hotel is often sold out when major events take place in Bahrain. You will not want to leave this little heaven!!!

Hotel Captial: Cheap and reasonable

This is one of the lower end of hotel I could get in Bahrain. The room rate was BHD 15 or about US$40. It has air-con, a fridge and attached bathroom. It is located i city centre and the souq. It is good enough for a short stay although the hotel is a bit shabby. I didnt make reservation and just walk-in. Take note reservation may be required during thier weekends (i.e. Thursday and Friday).

To get there, just get off from the bus station in front of the post office in town centre and ask people from there. The hotel is about 3 min walk from there.

I also visited another hotel half moon. I tries to call them and refuse to accept reservation. See its webpage for more information. http://www.bahraintourism.com/halfmoon/index.htm

It is located here the City centre Hotel, about 5-7 min walk from the city post office. Good luck.

Juffair Hostel: Juffair Hostel

We originally planned to stay at the Seef Hostel which looks so much nicer. I got one guy booked us a room there but when we got to the hotel, the staff there said there was no reservation and that the hostel was completely full so we had to go to the one in Juffair instead. It wasn't bad at all. 3 of us shared a room and there's a bathroom inside, not on a seperate building like Lonely Planet guidebook said. It costed 3.5BD per person( YHA member). The hostel is about 5-10 minutes walk from a bus stop where you can take bus no.3 to get to the center of Manama.

Ritz Carlton: THE best hotel ever

This was THE best hotel I have ever stayed in. What a personal individualized service you get there. One time I stayed at the "club" level and had a suite. It was about 70sqm and I had 3 bathrooms/showers, a special working room and what a bed! The shampoo, etc. was from Bulgaria, fresh fruit was there. Unbelievable. Also the standard rooms are really good by the way. When you get access to the club level you can go up and sit in a special loung (real loungy design) and drink (from beer to champagne) and eat (from the best chocolates to great warm food) all day long as much as you like. The hotel is at the beach, has a private island/peninsula and for sure you won't get bored there. Really recommendable!
And...the blue elephant restaurant is VERY close!

Radisson: Good hotel in good location

Nice hotel, I was at the club level, which means all food and drinks are free all day long. Very good breakfast buffet, so many choices. My compliments! Rooms were nice, just the rooms you'd expect at a Radisson hotel. Cosy small pub around the block, though nothing that exciting. Walking distance from Manama centre and the shops.

This Hotel had it all. Sports Bar, Coffee Bar, Seafood Restaurant(Waves), Rock and Roll Bar and a Vegas still show hall. They offered everything you could want and need such as a barber shop, Salon and if your in to it Women of the nite by the dozens.

They had a nice pool but I did not get to use it.

Gulf Hotel - Bahrain: Gulf Hotel my best hotel so far

My stay here was short as I arrived on a late fly (2AM) and had to leave before 9AM. I must say this 5 star hotel was fantastic, I had a room on the 4th floor with a view of the Al Fateh Great Mosque.

The room was superb, well arranged, looking new, good view. The lobby was impressive and the breakfast was also very nice.

Unfortunately I had not the time to explore other facilities of the hotel :( on this business trip.
