“Best Place To Stay”
Reviewed 24 July 2008

Originally booked for 7 days but we liked it so much we paid for and extra day at the usual price - but they gave us a 50% discount on the price - good on yeah!
We opted for a fully furnished apartment because it had a kitchen with all the usual gadgets including a washer/dryer for our laundry. We booked through www.asiarooms.com who gave us the best deal - $127US per night including taxes. Most other sites offered $160US some not including taxes. Now though asiarooms advertise as 1 bedroom we actully got a 2 bedroom apartment - able to accommodate 4 persons (2 single and 1 queensize bed). The rooms are big, lounge is massive and bathroom very adequte - only complaint - which didn't bother us - was you could hear the chairs in the above apartment dragged along the floor when moved.
Everyday the apartments are cleaned and we would leave a tip for the cleaners daily - however they would not take the money untill i told them to. There are no safes in the rooms so dont leave any valuables laying about - which was a nuisance at times.
The apartments were very easy to find as per directions given on the site. Though five min drive to the city centre by car, the apartments are located in Juffar area - which we found to be pleasently quite considering the constructions sites around us - dont expect a good view - but we didn't care. With my wife and i working in Saudi Arabia, you miss certain food items that you take for granted in NZ - like pork and the old amber fluid - and yep there is a supermarket a walk away called Al Jazira that supplies pork and other western delights that are hard to find in most arab countrys. And you can find a liquor store (amber fluid) next to the Gulf Hotel - 5 min drive from the apartments.
Certainly a better stay here in Bahrain than our previous stay last year. The apartments however are only for families - which means no singles and no parties! We highly recommend this apartments.
