“Very nice stay”
Reviewed 2 April 2012

This is a very elegant hotel with a convenient location to restauarants, tourist attractions, and business functions. The room was well appointed with the exception of the 26 inch tube TV. I had one issue with the room in that the AC would not cool it to the stated temperature on the thermostat. Maintenance responded quickly, but their fix was to crank the temperature down on the thermostat, giving you no idea what the real temperature was.

The staff was generally friendly and helpful, although I would not label them as efficient. The Mexican restauarant was reasonably priced and the food was very tasty. The breakfast buffet was expensive and the food was average in my opinion. I would not eat breakfast there again. All-in-all, I enjoyed my stay and I felt it was an overall pleasant experience.

Nice hotel and I would say one of the best in Bahrain.
The location is PERFECT! You are:
1- 5 minutes walk from the main restaurants street
2- 5 minutes drive from Jufair "some walking area with small coffee shops"
3- 10 minutes drive from the malls
4- 15 to 20 minutes drive from the airport
The hotel staff are OK, the hotel recently renovated!! its ok done.
Don’t miss the food there,
SATO is amazing Japanese
China Garden is very nice
And there is Thai, Italian, Lebanese, and International in the 6th floor with nice view!!
I think the gulf hotel did well on food!!
The Bar in the ground floor is very famous in Bahrain and been there for ever!!
Overall, for the price, I think it’s a nice hotel!

Room Tip: Ask for the renovated rooms

I stayed at the Gulf Hotel in Manama, Bahrain and was greatly impressed with the facilities, service and location. I would stay there again given the chance. I will recommend this property to my friends who need to travel there! The only thing was that the bed was very firm - for those who like softer mattresses, check to see if they have any.

I stayed for the weekend; Gulf Hotel is almost the first 5 starts hotel in Bahrain.
Located in central of Capital Manama, with 10-15 minutes away from Airport, Juffair, and Adliya district.
Staffs are welcoming; almost all of them are local Bahrainis.
More than 6 restaurants: Iranian, international, Italy, Japanese, Mexican and Lebanese. I recommend AlWaha for breakfast, Takht Jamsheed for lunch and Zahle for dinner (live entertainment program with Lebanese singer and belly dancing)
Roomy rooms, but old decoration including old TVs. A/C was not cooling well but I called the room service, they cleaned the filter and worked well.
The view was awful, picture attached, as we stayed in the 3rd floor, so just be sure to booked the higher levels.
Regardless the view and decoration, gulf Hotel is still a recommended.

Room Tip: higher floors have better view
