We booked for 2 nights via booking.com.We also paid for the room when we arrived.Imagine our shock when we get message from Booking.com the next morning that hotel informed them that we never checked in!Our credit card by then had already charged for the 'No Show'booking!To get them cancel/refund the credit card was another run around with the front desk...

The staff was friendly and helpful. A half a dinar tip prompted the bell boy to bring clean pillow cases and fresh towels upon check in. (!) There was a hair dryer, but don't know if it worked. Also, the two most important things in the room didn't function properly: the AC and the safe. The AC cooled the room,...

After 1,5 week of some serious backpacking in various countries with some really bad hotels (black water in the shower, fear of electrocution in the shower, no towels, no sheets, pillows that should be white under their cover but were actually greyish brown), this was a fine and clean hotel room to relax. Warm water, functioning AC, no power cuts...

The hotel was old, and so was the air-conditioning. It functioned well enough to relieve the summer heat of Bahrain but it was still not cool at all. (probably got down to 29 C, even though I set it lower)

The hotel's location is excellent; it is right in the middle of the city within close proximity to Manama souk. The staff were friendly and accommodating and the food was simple and delicious. For the price, it is a perfectly good option, with perhaps the only off-putting thing being the smell of smoke that hits you when you walk into...

I booked this hotel last year but then had to cancel due to a change of plans. I cancelled well within the free cancellation period but they still charged me! Over the next 5 months they used every avoidance trick in the book. In the end Hotels.com refunded me as I booked through them. I'm sure if they hadn't been...

Great price which was a fairly quick journey from the airport. Staff were friendly. Was given a room on the top floor on the corner with a nice evening view of the street activity below. The mini-bar was quite well stocked. It was possible to smoke in the room but i preferred to smoke on the balcony. I didn't get...

I stayed two nights in this hotel. At the reception they help me parking the car, which came out to be free parking. The hotel is extremely well located right in the center, along many busy streets and famous central market. The bedroom was nice, clean, spacious and comfortable. I didn't have any towel or toilette paper, so I had...

And I like the location too ... down in the Souq area. The off-site parking has always worked out for me too ... although the car park is generally full. They'll squeeze it in somehow. However, like me, this hotel has seen better days. They try to keep it reasonably clean, but you can't escape small visitors in the bathroom...

I was only at this place for one night. The location is fine if you want to be near the bus station and in the Souk area. If you don't then I guess you should probably chose somewhere else. As you know taxis aren't the cheapest in Bahrain so you should probably limit your usage. The hotel is old and...
