Fortunately they have still maintained the hotel and have added or renovated a tower of very good, base cost rooms. The rooms themselves are large enough to...

If you are traveling to bahrein for business. Gulf hotel Manama is a very good adress in which you will enjoy relaxing after a day of work. It might look far from the airport at a first look on a map. But the fact of having the hotel next to major streets makes it easy to come to and go...

I visited Al-Waha restaurant this week. I encountered such great staff and such tasty food. There is a wide variety of food, not to mention the friendly staff who meets you with kindness from the very first moment you arrive until you leave.

We always have a wonderful time when staying here. The staff is friendly and helpful. They have several nice restaurants and most have live entertainment. The pool is great with a separate pool/waterpark for families and I wish the people with small kids would use it instead of letting their kids run wild in the adult pool with a bar....
