“Great Stay, great convenience!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 August 2014

Sayed at the "Le meridien" one of the ex kempinski hotels situated adjoining the Bahrain City Centre. the other being "The Westin". both are part of the Starwood Chain.

check was was silky smooth. Ridwan at the front office was very courteous and professional. we were checked in within a matter of minutes, and we are in our rooms in less than 10 minutes. Hospitality of the staff was excellent. you only ask ONCE! and that seemed to be the theme all over the hotel. this is the ideal venue if you are staying with your family for a short stay. we never left the premises. the lobby connects to the biggest mall which is the Bahrain City Centre. the family members can go on their own as its so convenient. one gets to watch movies, dine at a variety of restaurants both in the hotel at the mall. The pool situated on the 3rd floor is a great area to spend the whole day!. There is a pool bar and life guard. The uniqueness is the large no of 4 post beds situated on 2sides of the pool. therefore the family can relax and even doze off comfortably!
the happy hour is from 11 am to 8pm...and that is the longest 1 for 1 offer from among hotels I've visited!.
all in all this is a great and convenient 5 star property to stay at. A bit pricey, but you can always catch an offer online!...
will stay again for sure........

“Luxury accommodations ”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 July 2014 via mobile

We had a fabulous time at the kempinski. We were celebrating our birthdays so we upgraded to a suite. We were also traveling with two small children.
My only complaint is we had booked a babysitter a week in advance and when we checked in they acted like it was going to be a problem, after talking to a few people they found us one, but I was very hesitant being "found" a babysitter. Needless to say, we ate at the hotel downstairs and weren't gone long.
My other complaint is the price. You can go to the gulf hotel much cheaper and have a similar experience.
The spa is amazing and well worth it!!
The pool is so deep that I couldn't even touch!! It is the strangest thing...

We stayed there for three nights and we didn't need to go out of the hotel because the citycenter mall is connected and every things are there from shopping ,water park ,cinema and many resturants I highly recommend it for short trip and when the weather is so hot .

“Nice Brunch”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 May 2014 via mobile

Nice Brunch, but not so family friendly, because of the configuration of the place. The buffet selection and quality of food is quite nice. The live band was very pleasant. Nothing to say on the professional service. After lunch, you can go shopping, as it is directly linked to the Mall.
