                Good hotel room are well maintained, free parking, staff was very professional and room service guy Mr Dass was such a nice and supportive person only one deficiency which i found was very hot water in the washroom / toilet oh it was too much hot hotel management should consider this issue high priority and solve this issue during summer. Everything whatever you required available and surrounding of the hotel restaurants club bars etc also available in ground floor and very close to hotel area

                Pros: room is cean and quite, staff are friendly and helpful especially Mostafa at reception desk. He is very eager on customer's satisifaction. Check in and out was done in 5 minutes, parking is available but it is quite difficult to find available arking after 9 pm as hotel has 3 night clubs so a lot of customers are available at the night.

                no non smoking rooms”

                I feel in this day and age, any large hotel should have the majority of rooms no smoking. I was placed in a smelly smoking room and when I asked to move was told there were no non smoking rooms. The hotel has seen better days but has loads of Arabic character. Lovely deep pool, interesting hardwoods and mosaics of a bygone era. Room service was reasonably priced and absolutely fabulous. I got to my room, the TV was not tuned into the channels, I was not given the internet password, I had no coffee, (which is normally supplied at this hotel) there was less towels than one would expect & the room was not clean enough. Reception was unable to tell me the password & I had to wait till after Ramadan prayers to obtain it from housekeeping & have the other issues addressed. Housekeeping were diligent in addressing them. Quite a mixed experience at this hotel, all up I dont regret staying but wouldnt stay again principally because of the smoking room issue.

                I really enjoyed staying at the hotel. It is very clean and the maintenance staff come and clean it daily - change the bed and towels. Mustafa at reception was very helpful as on the day of my exam he helped me to organise a ride to the exam center. The breakfast was delicious. I wish Inhad known that the pool is undergoing maintenance and is not open at the moment. But overall a very positive experience with lovely, helpful and polite staff. Would definitely stay again!

Nice comfortable rooms, friendly staff en located near to the souks ( the souks are on walking distance) The internetconnection is good. Friendly staff. About 15 min from the airport. There is a bar location down in the hotel. The music at night can be hear in your room. If you want to go to sleep early this can be annoying. The bar is nice to visit, also typical Arabic style.

Another thing was the pool was closed for maintenance, really ? as I did not see anyone working on it the 5 days I stayed here. Also why wasn't this mentioned on the web site advising that the pool was not open ? Also don't expect to get much sleep here as the on site club bang loud music out till 4am every night. The rooms are very basic and need renovating and the bathroom is disgusting and my one had leaks !

                Too much noise”

                Could not sleep until 230am due to noise. Absolutely unbearable. We had an early morning flight to take which we missed. I expect a full refund from Agoda

                Not the best in bahrain.. but good enough ”

                They should have stated that the pool was closed..I could have booked at another cheaper hotel. they placed us in a room far away from the elevator.. quite a walk.. otherwise breakfast was good, place was clean. Bed was soft.. but probably not gonna recommend or visit it again
