Back then, when I was younger, I used to sleep in some cheap backpackers... But it's the the first time of my life that I paid almost 50 euros for a bed with a kind of "white" dirty stuff on the sheets, with coackroach on the ground, with rusty shower, etc... And the worst thing it's that the manager of... More

Rough guide suggested that this was second best of the budget hotels on this road after the Naseem. Sadly I don't think so. A crappy shower with lots of mildew and a bed with only a bottom sheet and one of those big fluffy and pretty unclean rugs as a top sheet was not very appetising. No window, but with... More

This place is so dirty that wall are more dirty than the floor and the bathroom was floated as water was leaking from the sink. They also charge us an extra night because a double booking they made and we could not get our money back, Well, I gave them the price for the worst accommodation I have been.

We wanted to stay around the corniche area where we could walk to souk and not get taxis and there are non of the big hotel chains only small hostel style guest houses. This hotel is in a great location for walking the corniche, visiting the fish market, wandering the souk and being in old town Muttrah. We had a... More

This hotel is moderately priced, and our room overlooked the harbour and was big enough for a family. There's not much furniture, but the room was clean and the bed comfortable. The views of the Corniche are lovely, day or night, and while the bathroom was quite dated, there was plentiful hot water and a bath with shower over. Stay... More

Conveniently located on the corniche, with free parking out the front, but at $40 for a small room with a bare hint of a shower, it's not really "budget". Staff on duty when I arrived had no knowledge of my booking and was pretty rude (it turned out to be no problem getting a room in summer though, which gave... More

This hotel is located right on the corniche just steps away from the Muttrah souq. The fish market is across the street There are several rooms with balconies that look out onto the corniche.
