Gulf Air had to put us up here for 12 hours after they cancelled our flight.
Our room was pretty basic, but big, & we had to call housekeeping to change the batteries in the safe so that it worked. Beds were comfy, bathroom & shower were good but quite a climb into the bath. I'm guessing we didn't have their best room as we were on a stopover.
The reception staff automatically deferred to, & spoke to, my husband, even though I visibly had both passports & money, ignoring me. That didn't go down well.
Bar was ok - again I felt that they weren't that used to women guests being in there, & it was quite smoky despite the smoking area being separated.
The restaurant was ok - we had 3 meals there.
The hotel complex has other restaurants in the grounds, & a nightclub.
Location wise - it is outside the main drag, but very near the Palace mosque, which is a fantastic building. Over the road is a nice coffee place & shopping arcade - its a very dusty place so be prepared.
Not the hotels fault, but Immigration at the airport was the worst & slowest I've ever known - we won't go back to Bahrain!
