Stayed here many times over the years for conferences being apparently one of the few with large conference facilities. The hotel is very comfortable and the Platinum lounge makes the stay enjoyable with a good breakfast and happy hour lasting most of the evening! There are a whole range of restaurants which are all very good. The new Indian is...

Stayed 3 nights. Pleasent staff and great restaurants within the hotel. Comfortable bed. Cleanliness could be improved. Hotel shuttle schedule is very unreliable and should not be advertised at all if it can't be met. Taxis in the country are limited so perhaps better to rent a car. Locals are very friendly and well behaved compared to other middle eastern...

Lovely hotel with a grand entrance, if you are here on a short stay make sure you take a look at the back where the pool and bar is, a hidden paradise, beyond that pool is a smaller kiddies pool.

Despite been established for quite a few years in the heart of Bahrain, this hotel still is the one to beat, it's imposing stature and facilities are excellent, the food and beverage areas are amazingly all of high quality, I would say that there are over a dozen international quality eateries.

I come since 5 years every month to Bahrain and I like the Gulf Hotel but slowly it is time for some renovations. It can hardly compete with the new 5 stars hotels in the city. Still it is a very good hotel and the restaurants are recommendable but the rooms are not really big and could need some improvement.

You gotta love the location of the hotel. Everything is around, and close by. Nice helpful staff, grand entrance lobby, and cozy rooms. Family oriented hotel welcoming children. They had baby cot in the room as we asked for. We spent one night at the hotel with the city view room.
