“A bed for the night”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 April 2013

that's all it was... I was offered "services" at the beginning of my stay. The Arabic club upstairs was the best part of the hotel, all night shisha and entertainment.

The room was not the cleanest, i had a terrible view of the marina and the dead pigeons on a summit. The bathrooms were ok at best, and the air conditioner did not help matters at all.

The hotel gives the personal and confidential customers data to random girls to call you in the room immediately after you entered the room to offer their sexual services .......and when you asked why ? They will just ignore you . Plus they charge you an additional 10 BD if your friend comes to visit you .... What a lovely good service ?

Booked this hotel by mistake and then paid the price.....where do you start describing the worst hotel in Manama? Dark dingy soulless, the room stank, the bathroom floors were dirty and blood spots on the shower wall ughh! My phone rang four times during the night with hookers wanting to give "massage" yea sure....the room is barren, the tv was from 1983 and most stations did not work as was wifi even with the pass code still did not work, 5 BD for one bottle of beer and 2.5 BD for one bucket of ice......I have saved the worst for last namely the disco as I was on the third floor and the bass blasted away until past 200 am!!!! Just the worst place imaginable with dodgy drug dealers and young men vomiting in the street outside the hotel.....do you self a favour an DO NOT waste $100 a night on this disgusting hotel from hell......absolutely the worst!

The personal is very impolite: staff keeps passports until checkout. In the first floor there is a disco that is so loud that you can hear it in the rooms of the 5th floor. At 3 am in the night staff opened the room to check if there are more than the 3 persons that booked inside. Impudent!!! Do not book this hotel!!! Better sleep on the street!!!

Milestones and new beginnings … Leisure crowd and hip-hoppers … Rooms with
a view …






Marking a milestone this year is the four-star Gulf Gate Hotel. Its first 365 days have seen better ones and bigger profits, thanks to the hotel’s distinguished business philosophy, remarkable management style, and the staff’s enviable team spirit.

J. L. Paul, Gulf Gate’s indefatigable GM, reports a 70 per cent occupancy rate and that 50 per cent of the guests are actually repeat customers.

So, what clicks and ticks in the Gulf Gate? Guests, according to J. L. Paul, are bowled over by the hotel’s very relaxing atmosphere, highly personalised service, and rooms with unbeatable sea view, the most spectacular yet in the island.

Gulf Gate has 125 beautifully refurbished rooms and most are on the seafront, overlooking the panoramic Arabian Gulf .

Pleasure begins in The Pavilion, the bistro-style restaurant renowned for superb poolside (with the most stunning swim pool), dinner buffet, and a la carte menu. Virtuoso music emanates from the strings and keyboards of irrepressible duo, Romantica.

Arabic and International flavours are the 24-hour attractions of the hotel’s café, Al Qahawah, and in Shaminaya, enchanting Mujra dances and the finest Mughlai cuisine await the diners.

The leisure crowd gathers at Wendy’s, a cosy tropical lounge renowned for exotic beverages and relaxing mood music.

Which night creature wouldn’t be dazzled by Tameem’s. Bahrain ’s chic crowd and hip-hoppers give Tameem’s their “two thumbs up” for being the hippest disco joint in this part of the world.

Bahrain’s booming tourism industry has added new jewels in its crown, the Bahrain Phoenicia Hotel and the Al Commodore Hotel.

The four-star Phoenicia straddles elegantly along scenic King Faisal Highway and since its opening, has been impressing guests with splendid rooms with a view.

Who wouldn’t be charmed by the Arabian Gulf , glorious at sunrise, magnificent at sunset? On a clear day, the turquoise waters flutter like a shimmering gossamer fabric. Guests in Phoenicia find this vantage view so irresistible that curtains are drawn wide open in most rooms most of the time.

The spanking new Phoenicia takes pride in its 64 rooms and 16 suites, scrupulously furnished according to high international standards.

Making the traveller’s stay all the more congenial are the hotel’s fully equipped business centre, ultra modern fitness facilities, a rooftop swim pool with piped-in music and poolside amenities, ample parking space, and round-the-clock room and laundry services.

There’s the cosy and unpretentious Al Nawras, a café where brisk business is gauged by the bustle of human activity – light banter and trading of notes, and pleasantry over cups of tea or coffee. The splendid menu makes the café worth a visit.

Nightlife sizzles in the chic Layali Al-Sharq, where explosive Arabic entertainment takes place after dark. Phoenicia takes the superb credit for an eclectic gathering of singers and musicians, considered amongst the best and brightest in the Arab entertainment world.

Phoenicia is the crossroad of Arabic talents and artistry – Bahraini, Egyptian, and Moroccan – fused harmoniously to render an amalgam of Arabic music, as varied and as wide-ranging as the tastes and preferences of its Pan-Arab habitués. Arabian nights are indeed enthralling in this newest Arab joint.

The new Al Commodore is of course being swarmed by a retinue of guests and visitors who have come to try it out. There are 48 rooms and three suites, a health club replete with gym facilities, Jacuzzi, sauna room, and sun-deck swim pool.

Serving a la carte menu is the speciality restaurant, Dynasty. This new dining place is fast gaining popularity for its fine International cuisine and high-voltage entertainment by resident showband, Illusions.

Businessmen cap a day’s work in Al Commodore’s executive lounge, Pink Panther, sensational with its pink motif and relaxation amenities.

Top-flight Arabic entertainment captivates nightly in Al Carawan with the internationally renowned Egyptian band, Al Ajna Al Dahabiya.

After-dark revellers dance the night away in the newest downtown discotheque, La Bamba, where DJ Sadique spins the evening crowd’s favourites.

Making waves at the five-star Diplomat are the best-loved Pasta Fondue Night, Mondays, and the immensely popular Surf & Turf, Wednesdays.

Italian food lovers get to savour pasta with a twist, a personal choice of authentic Italian sauces cooked to perfection by Veneziano’s fussiest gourmets, the Italian chefs themselves.

The freshest grilled fish and seafood, and succulent, mouth-watering steaks go on parade with Surf & Turf in Al Warah. The diners are having a grand feast.

Third Corner recently opened in the heart of Adliya with elegant venues, namely Bistro Tambayan, Vintage Room, and Acropolis. The posh Third Corner has three levels of luxurious interiors, perfect settings to dine and unwind in style. First-rate Oriental and Continental cuisines spring from its busy kitchens, where talented chefs rule with grace and ingenuity.

This hotel is tired, the rooms stink of cigarette smoke, the desk staff are appallingly rude, and the nightclub on the first floor sends out a thumping beat that kept me awake to after 2.30am despite being 6 floors above! I only have myself to blame for not heeding the warnings given by others. Cost was 40 BD for one night including a disgusting breakfast, and they had the cheek to charge 1 BD for drinking half of a very small bottle of water left in the bathroom which I assumed (incorrectly) was complimentary.
