Stayed for a night in winter, and found I could not warm my room. Seems that because Bahrain is mostly hot, air-conditioning only is the priority! My colleague had the same experience in his room. With regard to the hotel layout, it is confusing! There are two sets of lifts to separate room towers. The second set of lifts is not signposted, and is rather a long way from check-in. The room itself was recently renovated, and functional. However, much of the hotel has a fairly lived-in feel - apart from the spectacular foyer and public rooms. Staff at the front desk were friendly and efficient. The food I ate in one restaurant was of good quality, with polite waiting staff. Wifi internet was not available in the room, which is a limitation. The hotel is next to the Convention Centre, which is convenient, but a rather long way from more interesting parts of Bahrain! I think I would try somewhere else next time in Bahrain.
