                    Booked thru agoda after 9pm, arrived at the hotel before 11pm payment already debited in my account.. however reception told me that no more available rooms wherein i have confirmed booking thru Agoda and payment done thru online, need to argue with reception showing my confirmed booking and debited payment, after several argument they have provided me a room which is available contradicting to earlier statement. Moreover, the room provided was not as per my booked room. I am with my family having 2 children..

                    We were very dissappointed with the receptionist, While check in they said there is no booking confirmation. They have given several reasons: 1. They said not paid for booking 2. They said there is no booking made through Agoda and you have booked some other third party 3. They have insist us to find another hotel and get the refund from Agoda. We informed this is non refundable booking. 4. Finally after all drama they have given the rooms. We are not sure why they were behave like this manner.

                    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.

                    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.

                    I want to say: i will never choose this hotel again. 1. traffic is a disaster there. It is difficult to get in and out from 5 pm to 11 pm. Traffic jam around that area all the time during this period 2. Roads are narrow and it seems dirty all around 3. wifi is weak in bedroom. I have to stand just behind the door to use the wifi. If i sit on my bed, no wifi signal. 4. no visitor allowed to go inside.

                    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.

                    1. Near to tourist attractions places 2. Close to superb variety restaurant 3. Convenient airport transfer

                    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.

                    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!

                    The rooms where fine and the staff great. The minuses where no internet access why I was there in my room. The other bad point is there cable tv was not very good. Only one English channel BBC news. However the staff where exceptional including a discounted taxi rate to a bar a good way a way from the hotel. Took me there and picked me up in the evening.

                    Just what I was expected, clean room and no problem with guest. Reception was great and I had a good time staying there. Internet work well on the 6th floor.

                    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.
