Gulf Gate Hotel

Reviewed 20 November 2016

This hotel is alive, alongside the souq and part of the night life area. Young mans place maybe no for a family unless they like fun. Great breakfast, welcoming staff, nothing to much trouble.

Good breakfast, buffet.

Clean pool area.

Room Tip: The staff will try to help you. Ask and they will try.

This hotel is surprisingly nice and near the Souk of Manama.

Very friendly staff - look for Ms Elena at the reception to get some tips about best rooms, strong wifi.

MS Elena assisted me in so many ways.

All the bell hops and the parking attendants are also accommodating.

The AC is very strong in our room 246 - a must to have to cope with the Bahrain Heat.

The hotel has several clubs and bars if you're interested in these things but this may create some party noises at night

Stayed a night. Hotel is old and has 2 storeys but good enough for stay. Was upgraded to room with double bed. Staff were very friendly. Room was big with in-room dining available. Comes with a bath tub. Downside for me ---- no in-room slippers.

Hotel is not suitable for families with kids. Loud music from lounge can be heard from 2nd floor, probably ended at 5 am. Freelance ladies can be seen plying corridors. Did not manage to visit lounge, so nothing to write on it.

Restaurant food is ok, mostly western. Briyani and Khabsa available. Ok selection of alcohol available from the restaurant.

Hotel located directly in front of SAPTCO bus station, convenient for those travelling to Bahrain by bus. A short distance away by foot is the Bab Al Bahrain. No restaurants like TGIF or Outbacks nearby. The Omnibus service terminal is nearby whereby you can take bus to airport.

Room Tip: Room on 2nd floor are quieter, unless you are above the lounge/club. Single rooms on the 1st floor.

I stayed in this hotel for two nights in the weekend. The staff are friendly and service is very good. Bathroom are maintained very well and housekeeping available any time on call if you need. Breakfast is okay and there is option to book room only ie without complimentary breakfast. I liked this option as I can go out for South Indian breakfast outside or order to outside restaurants who deliver in hotel rooms.
I enjoyed the outside swimming pool. It is good and well maintained. But it closed to guests after 5 PM as they are conducting swimming classes for outsiders during summer holidays. Also morning it is opened only at 8 am. Atleast it should be made available to guest from 5 am. Also there is no life saver posted in the pool. Otherwise facilities in swimming pool is excellant.

There are many indian, pakistani, bengali, philipino, arabic bars and dance clubs availble in the ground floor. It is a good place for night life and relaxing. Also we can bring guests from outside to rooms after informing at reception.

All the staff in reception are friendly and very efficiently handled check in and check out. There is cloak room available in the counter where you can leave your luggage after check out if required for sometime.
I will certainly come again to this place during my next visits as it suits to my liking.
