“Value for money”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 May 2014

Location is fairly good for if you like to be near the city centre. The hotel feels to be new and well maintained. The room was perfectly clean when we arrived, but the housekeeping didn't do a good job cleaning after the first night; dirt on the floor, so no-one vacuum cleaned there. Overall positive. I would recommend to book a room at a corner, since the view will be much better; bigger windows.

Stayed here for Christmas. Lobby and rooms were very nice and well maintained. Bed was very comfortable. Room is a tad small but I guess that is the norm there. Breakfast was good. Shuttle service was great.

First postive thing : parking included and the parking is in the hotel so quick way to reception and rooms. The rooms a nice anc clean, the hotel has been recently build and it look well mantained. All rooms are the same as this is the HInn Express philosphy. Have a nice TV (only one german station, no italian. The toilet is small but enough, has a large shower. Breakfast is always included, no frills and enough to start the day. Staff is very efficient and nice. IHG card holders have to consider that no upgrade possible as all rooms are the same! But you get free internet, up to two devices. 2 water bottles are already in the rooms, also coffeemaker and instant coffee. Nice. The rooms are rented also for 3 persons but for two adults and a child its really small and ther eis no sufficient storage space. Sometines the noise from the roads around might be distubing but it depens on wich side of the hotel you are. they have a small fitness center, no pool.

This hotel is excellent value for money compared to some of the other hotels in the area. The room was a standard HIE room - comfortable, clean and typically furnished. I especially like how they have a choice of soft or firm pillows without having to ask.
The staff were extremely helpful and friendly - they gave me plenty of advice for my stopover in Manama.
The location was great too. As I didn't know my way around, I had a taxi take me to the main market area and to the Bahrain National Museum. Both were only a short distance away. And there's no shortage of drivers around

For an 'express' category hotel, the experience was rather better than what one would expect. Room size is normal for a couple to stay comfortably, buffet breakfast had hot food options as well. The beds and pillows were absolutely comfortable and that is a key requirement for me. Linen was nice and crispy. The hotel itself appears to be quite new and therefore, gives a good feel. If you are driving, it is very close to the express way with a convenient exit and entry and you avoid a lot of internal traffic. The corniche (waterfront) is at a few minutes walk and a nice place for en evening stroll or morning walks.... good for nature lovers ! The locality is not so great with some shady hotels also located close by. However, I would not say that it disturbed us or our stay by any means. Groceries and small convenience stores are located close by. Mostly fast food joints located close by. For good restaurants, one has to go to the Diplomatic Area, which is about 10 mins drive. We got for a room with at a partial view of the waterfront and were happy to stay there. The in-room wifi was free, very high speed and absolutely reliable.

Stayed here with my partner for two nights and to be honest it was fine if you take into account the price, location to amenities and you need somewhere to sleep. It isn't the Ritz Carlton but I have stayed at the Novotel in Manama and to be honest, the price differential isn't worth it.

It's the Holiday Inn express and you don't have to expect frills and super quality service. However, when we needed ice or an ironing board, they were promptly delivered. I had no complaints but maybe my expectations are different due to the brand.

Rooms are small but you are in the city so it's expectational. I am not fond of the location but let's face it, Manama isn't a tourist spot.

I've been visiting Bahrain for many years and have always thought most hotels are overpriced. Found this one online, a relatively new hotel in a great location very close, easy walking to the Hard Rock and Warblers and all the other bars and restaurants in that area. Booked online through a booking site and got a great rate something like £45 per night which included tax. Hotel is very clean and rooms more than adequate. Breakfast was a bit industrial and when I was there a little chaotic but reasonable choice. At current room rates would definitely stay again when next in Bahrain.
