Indeed a great place to check-in, nice view of Bahrain from inside, many restaurants serving nice local/ international food. Few meters away from famous 'Fateh Grand Mosque'. Ideal for stay/ business gathering/ events.

Stayed a night. Booked delux and was upgraded to luxury. Luxury was what I was expecting for the delux level. Close to restaurants and the liquor store. Apartment units are very average also. No connections for USB recharging of devices. Entrance lights did not work correctly. Putting that card in by the door was only way to charge anything but...

The hotel location and service is really great except for not providing airport shuttle vehicle and not cleaning its room’s windows periodically. There are a variety of the restaurants which ones can choose late at night which is great. One last thing, the pool scene is very out of date.
