“Pretty basic business hotel”
Reviewed 11 July 2014

Pretty basic business hotel, had the misfortune to stay here for 9 months, before i moved to another elite hotel, which was the resort and spa, which was much nicer.

Pretty basic and clean but not great for long term stay.

Room Tip: stayed in pretty much all the rooms and none were particularly better than any others

Stayed at this hotel for a period of 3 months when working in Bahrain and found Elite Suites modern, well equipped (room wise) and centrally positioned between Manama and Seef Districts.

Its advisable based on the location to have some level of transportation to scoot around the Island as Taxi's are quite expensive in Bahrain and at times difficult to come by, so its probably best to hire a car straight away.

I stayed in a Gold Suite (luckily, I had the corner one) which gave me great views overlooking the Seef area. The room features huge windows to facilitate this even lying in bed.

Air-conditioning is adequate but depending on the time of day, one may be constrained to draw the curtains to improve it.

It is also a relative walking distance to the Dana Mall and Seef Malls (provided the climate permits - as it can get very hot and muggy). Hence, its great to stock up on your shopping and hang out at the cinemas in both the Malls if one has nothing else to do.

The Suite itself is a largish room with a sitting area and sleeping area with a king size bed adequate for a single or double occupancy.

Additionally, it has an adequate work desk space with sufficient drawers to store ones files etc., a fully functional small kitchenette equipped with a microwave, refrigerator, toaster, kettle and crockery.

Furthermore, the room features a lavish bathroom with shower and bathtub.

I found that the closet spaces are quite liberal and there are several other storage bin quite cleverly positioned around the room.

Please be advised that the hotel can get crowded over the weekends (Thursdays & Fridays) as there is an onslaught of guests/families from Saudi Arabia. Which is fine for me, however, the children do get noisy at times and the rooms are not sound proofed.

The hotel boasts very limited food & beverage options (there is only one outlet), so one is well advised to get the groceries sorted out first to get the meals aspect sorted unless one likes to eat out.

A business center with internet capabilities is available at additional cost.

The Front Desk offer limited capabilities but then the hotel is not designed to be fully serviced. It has a more residential feel to it.

There is a pool at the rooftop with some deck chairs and views to the city.

Overall, the hotel serves as a good residential option for people doing projects over a short period of time and want to be away from the main stream hotels in the city. But, if you are looking for 5 star deluxe this is not your cup of tea.

Room Tip: Choose the Gold Suites.

The service of the hotel is excellent , the staff are so kind and polite, the room size and room facilities are very good, breakfast is just ok, however the location is very quite and far from city center.

I recommend this hotel for who have car only in Bahrain.

This is a more conservative hotel that doesn't serve alcohol or has a bar.
Mostly family's from the gulf like it for that reason.

The noise isolation Is very very bad.

The location is really good , only 5 minuts from the major shopping malls.

Located near two shopping complexes (Seef and Dana Malls). The hotel lobby is very polished and pleasing to the eye. The staff was pleasant and professional. I just loved my room! I had a separate bedroom area, huge bathroom, a dinette area with refrigerator and microwave and a living room area with sofa and chairs. Room had internet service (which was extra and somewhat pricey but worth it). Very comfortable and spacious. The swimminng pool was on the roof top with a view of the city - deck and pool area was nice and clean. Their restaurant the Temptations was good, no alcohol. There was lots of parking with a petro station near by. Hotel provided wake-up calls and laundry faciiities. Overall, a very nice hotel with great amenities and location. I will definitely stay there again.

Stayed at this hotel for a few nights late Jan, 2011. The location is ok, close to a couple shopping centers, but not suitable for walking around and exploring the city. The rooms are pretty spacious and have very functional kitchenettes with fridge, microwave, etc. Bathrooms are HUGE and very clean. The dinner buffet is ok, but the breakfast is really good (had the best scrambled eggs at the eggs station, not the buffet counter). Staff were very friendly and eager to help (people are generally quite friendly in Bahrain!).

My only gripe is the internet. They have a 'business' center, which is basically three computers outside the restaurant and no printer. It's expensive and really slow, on a good day, it takes about 5 minutes to open a page, literally. I gave up on it twice and didn't get a refund.

I would recommend this hotel, but i personally would want to try another hotel next time i'm in Bahrain.

I am not sure if it is so good value for money. It is certainly in a good location and very clean. But is has a lot of the disadvantages of other hotel appartments, which come cheaper. Major disadvantage on my opinion the expensive internet, which was the slowest I have experienced in a hotel in the region for years.
