Still not sure if I should give it 3 or 4 but I think 4 is the rate they get because of the overall value. I did like the big room, balcony, quiet on the 6th floor, the very central location and everything was working and not having to ask for help. I did feel the whole hotel was very...

Cheap hotel that's well situated, staff were pleasant, wifi was fast, rooms were clean, the food was average and the "taxi service" was cheap even if we did drive through two building sites (was a fun experience). Well worth the money if i was in the area would definitely stay again.

I found the service excellent. Matters were dealt with in a friendly speedy manner. The air conditioner let through a smell that was not good. I would highly recommend this hotel with its value for money, excellent location and friendly staff.

Stayed 1 night at BHD17. Taxi from airport BHD3. Centrally located to Souk and Post Office taxi rank. Spacious room and bathroom. Water pressure a little on the light side. Wifi was perfect at all times. Small balcony off room. Bed a little firm but a good nights sleep after a big day out. Sites are spread out so if...

Room was large with a tiny balcony. Good location - near the souk. There is free wifi. The staff is helpful. And if you need a taxi to the airport - have them arrange it with no hassle - all for only 5D.

Parking around the hotel can be a bit exasperating, but once you're through the door the staff are friendly and you get to drop your gear off fast enough. You're over here for freedoms anyhow, and a place to sleep. The rooms are dated, but functional. The TV wasn't really watchable until after a lot of faffing around setting the...

I chose the Awal Hotel due to its proximity to the Manama Souk. The streets outside the hotel are full of character and there's plenty of eateries and cold stores nearby. But I digress. The hotel is pretty old and the room decor is outdated. But it makes for a decent stay if you're not picky and want a cheap...

Accommodation is on the expensive side in Manama and the cheaper end of the market appears to be targeting bookings by the hour (if you know what I mean). But Awal Hotel is comfortable, basic, clean and super convenient - highly recommended. The location in central Manama is hard to beat. The area is full of life and has a...

This hotel is not new or remodeled. What you are getting is a good location in the old city near the souq for a very low price. The quality is pretty good accordingly. 17 BD for a single or about $45 per night incl tax. If you expect 5 star for that price then shame on you! This hotel has...

I booked in and used the confirmation telephone number and called on Skype for a taxi. The fellow was there waiting for me at 2 am. I checked in and got the Wi-Fi code. The lift was clean and polished stainless. The corridor told me this place was from the 50s - maybe, but CLEAN. Everything was washed, pressed and...
