We stayed at the Gulf Hotel for a short trip to Bahrain. Excellent choice. The restaurants were great and affordable. The pool was excellent, perfect place to cool off and relax. The room was very good, with a nice view of the city.

I've stayed here a few times on business trips. It's pretty pricey, but when someone else is paying I'm all about it. It's super nice and the staff are always helpful and friendly.

My experience in a city depends greatly on the people and the weather. This hotel staffs are just excellent. They are trained to remember your name and the next time they see you, you are greeted by your name. Unbelievable! Nice tennis courts (though wind was irresistible) and nice gym and sauna. Restaurants are diverse and I enjoyed choosing, thought...

the Gulf Hotel is an older hotel with a dated feel.
