Gulf Gate Hotel
Ranked #114 of 137 Hotels in Manama
Reviewed 1 March 2017

The hotel looks good, and have all the facilities what you need while in Manama. it's located in the city center, and most of the attractions are within walking distance. The hotel has many in-house dance clubs. But the number of Saudis who come on weekend days make it very difficult for other guests to visit the clubs and do any other activity.

Room Tip: Rooms on the top floors are quite than the lower floors.

Great location. A few minutes walk to manama bus station and bab Al bahrain souq in either direction. As a backpacker on a budget this was important for me. I arrived at 10am due to an early flight and I was checked in straight away and upgraded. Friendly staff generally. The reception decor is bright... personally I loved it. The room was classic style. Clean but not so modern. The bath tub had some staining but otherwise clean. Nice pool and small sauna and outside jacuzzi... Didn't use them though I planned to. Pool unheated. Surprisingly nice buffet breakfast given past reviews. Breads humous cheeses fruits and hot breakfast. I was in bed before 11pm but personally didn't see any ladies walking the corridor. I could hear music from the hotel bar and nightclub though. However from 10pm in the reception and bars onwards it felt more of a single man's hotel. They gave me a late check out if 2pm too which was a great surprise.

Me & my friend stayed in this hotel
stay was really very bad,
Reception staff ladies not wishing the Indian guest .check in time not explaining the hotel facilities & the package.

reception staff not treated us nicely like a guest.

But Mr. Khelid & Ms.Pinky was really very helpful & kind enough to give the hotel information & for their great hospitality.

Best rest every thing was fine & comfortable.

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
