                I stayed 3 days at Awal Hotel. The staff was very efficient, room was big and clean, wifi & AC worked perfect. The hotel was conveniently located in the heart of Manama, few minutes walking distance from the bus terminal.

                For a budget hotel I was amazed at the level of maintenance and cleanliness. Firm king sized bed and air-con that worked and was quiet. Well worth the cost. Quiet safe area of Manama (city center). Good taxi service and airport shuttle.

                Unfortunately, I understand the Awal Hotel is closing on 31 March 2018. That is a great loss for all of us. They deservedly have the highest ratings because of their dedicated staff and management. Any new company may or may not reach these standards.

                AVERAGE TYPICAL MOTEL ”

                we stayed there overnight and they have an average service. if you have a car this is not a perfect hotel for you since they dont have enough parking space. the hotel is situated in the heart of manama area so you can imagine business stalls etc there specially at night and it was eid which is a holiday so a lot of cars are parked in front and behind the hotel. we asked for assistance from the reception but they only tell us to find a spot at the back or anywhere in the vicinity. I MEAN! REALLY?!! So if you have your own car find someplace else but not here. Al jazeera hotel and Awal hotel are just beside each other so.. But if you want to roam around and you dont have a car this is the place for you. The room is clean and sanitary the bathroom is also sanitary but there are rusts but no grime or something. It is an old building so it kinda smells like one if you know what im saying. Well I hope this helps.

Easily commutable to Jufffair, and the City Centre Mall. The hotel maybe old, but has character,clean, and now has flat screen TVs. Large rooms, quiet, and staff extremely helpful.

                Great location

                Although the Awal Hotel is clean and located in a busy and interesting area in the Souq, the furnishings and style of room were outdated. It felt old and dark like a cave. Not the kind of place to go for anything else, but to sleep. Of course, for an expensive city like Manama, the price was decent, but that's it.

                The price, the cleanliness, the location.

                This is an excellent hotel for a short or long stay. There were not a lot of amenities, but everything you needed for a comfortable stay was there. Free parking, and right in the middle of the old souq area. The only thing that was not great was the water pressure in the shower. We will definitely use the Awal again; with the money we save we can go out to a five-start restaurant and shop!

                I was only there for 2 nights but it was in a good location, hotel was nice and clean and staff very helpful. The only downside was when ordering food in the restaurant it took almost an hour for dinner to come even though I was literally the only person in there. The food was nice once it came and the pricing very reasonable.

                Just like any other hotel nothing special. Very quit hotel, and service was excellent. Room service daily and as you wish. You have the flexibility to either call for room service or to go out and eat at MC Donald, Burger king, Philippine Restaurant or eat at the local restaurant. Night life near by.

                Very reasonable price.

                I stayed in the hotel for 5 days and my overall experience was good. Location:- Centrally located with a good choice of Indian restaurants at walking distance. Price:- Very reasonable, considering the high price of other hotels in the city. Noise:- None at the 6th floor. Rooms:- Little old and smelly, but, can be tolerated. Safety:- Not good for families. Do not stay if you have children with you. Staff:- Excellent manager at the reception, very helpful. One south Indian Parking supervisor is also the best. He was very cooperative in arranging space for my car and did not charge any money for it also. Room cleaning staff is not so good though, cannot be trusted. All in all, I needed to save some money and this was a good option for that. Thanks to the manager of the hotel who even waived off my cancellation fee for not showing up on the day of booking.

                Late check-in was not a restriction. Had a comfortable night after a long tour but friend of mine complaint of noisy night, well it's in the centre of the city anyway and it's expected. Wifi connectivity was not stable… wish it was stronger as we need to communicate with others from our own country. Had a very helpful staff during our check out. They tried their very best in catering the needs of their client. Professional receptionist, guarding and protecting client's detail making sure client stay is safe and comfortable. Courteous driver, bringing around places we need to visit and finally transfer to the airport. In general, I had a fair rate for this hotel as I believe they can still improve on many aspects.

                Awal Hotel has long since said goodbye to its nightclub and its good time girls, and is much the better for it. These things really don't mix with a hotel I'd want to stay in. After a doomed initial attempt to get me to stay in a single room instead of the double I'd paid for, my stay was without problems. If you're looking for a decent night's sleep in a good location then this place is a good choice.

                I enjoyed my stay at Awal. It was certainly what the price would indicate. It is a great value for the cost and the location is great. I would recommend it to travelers on a budget.

                Friendly staff. Driver to take you to the airport. Very clean. Centrally located. 24 hour room service.
                Small beds, even in the single rooms. No bar. No complimentary drinking water.

                This hotel is located right in the middle of the best of the Bahrain nightlife, where locals and expat residents hang out. It's walking distance to the big 5-star hotels, the Beit-al Quran, the National Museum and the La Fontaine Arts Center. The hotel is not very new, but clean. Has a minibar, and shampoo and soap in the bathroom.
