    The elevator seems very old.

    The room is clean despite the hotel is obviously old, the staff was very kind + helpful and gave us extra towels and toothbrush essentials. It was good all in all. The breakfast was okay too, I didn't find it super basic, they offer lots of food there which taste good.

    Occassional congestion outside the hotel which made it difficult at times to get the vehicle out of the place.

    The property is situated in close proximity (max 10 mins walking distance) to many good restaurants, boutiques the Manama Souk, Bab al Bahrain etc where most of one's travel needs can be met. The Restaurant and reception staff were very polite and helpful whenever we needed their help. Facilities in the room were worth the money paid. I would recommend this place to couples and solo travellers who are looking for more of an adventurous tour of Bahrain and not too focussed on the accomodation aspect and prefer to spend less on it.

    It is a busy area and there is no parking space. But they can help u to parking your car. It is a basic hotel so don’t expect much, the food needs improvement for the breakfast- more variety for different guests, my only complaint is the bed mattress - it is not comfortable at all. Maybe the hotel can invest in some mattress toppers or any other solution. My room has no smoking smell, but the corridors did. Maybe they need to change the carpets or invite in some real plants or exhausts to freshen the place up.

    The rooms are quite, the staff are friendly and helpful, it is in amazing location ( near bab al Bahrain, mid of Manama sooq, close to taxis and other malls like the avenues, city centre and Seef. I will definitely stay there again.

    VERY reasonably priced hotel in the business district of Manama.
    • Solo traveller
    • Single Room
    • Stayed 6 nights

    No bottled water was awaiting me in my room, nor were there any coffee/tea making facilities seemingly available. Perhaps that was just an oversight on my part by not requesting it when I was in my room, as most other expectations were met.

    Big, clean room, with small balcony, north facing so not too much sun streaming in. Very efficient, friendly front desk and I was quickly checked in and shown to my room. Very good in-room Wi-Fi allowed good streaming of whatever entertained me, and saved me from spending heaps of money there on just a couple of beers elsewhere... Very reasonably priced room service - freshly prepared Mutton Curry and Grilled Lamb Chops are my favourites in the evenings. Close to the Financial Harbour if needing a visa from the various visa services there, as well as near most Embassies as The Oriental is in the business district at the northern end of Manama. Other more and much more up-market hotels are nearby, within stumbling distance to and back from them to The Oriental...which have good entertainment at night if one must spend a few days to pass time waiting for one's new visa... Didn't watch the big screen TV, so can't vouch for it's offerings. Note that if one prefers a drink, Duty-Free of whatever is worth picking up on arrival, as the nearest cellar - the Gulf cellars - is 10 Dinars away there and back, and prices are about the same as one would find in western European countries. Oriental is a 'dry' hotel (though there is no problem bringing certain D-Free in and consuming in one's room) however, there are the many bars in the area, with varying levels of service and prices.

    The location of the hotel, it was not easy to reach, and the streets were very narrow, also, it is not easy to find a parking place for the car, if you are planning to stay in the hotel, then use taxi (although the taxi might not go there, I asked for Uber and the driver asked me to walk to the main road), furniture is very old, the TV doesn't have any Arabic channel, and the air leaks through windows.

    The hotel was old, smelly bedsheets and pillow cases, old TV, the comfort room was big though. The cabinet smells like there's a rat died in there. The breakfast is very basic. Only toast, butter, hard boiled egg, coffee or juice. I can't even request for an omelet because the chef is not around.

    It was a good location, near many stores and fast food chains.

    did not have breakfast - at night the Hotel is somewhat difficult to find if you drive a car and you do not have navi in such hire car. Perfect hotel parking. QUIET ROOM / Hotel / in the middle of the city near the shopping area and souk, at walking distance. OK for a business trip. Clean room and bathroom. Very friendly staff. Considering a moderate room rate I had you get value for money.

    Could have been a little more choice for breakfast but for the price is pretty good.

    The room was old-fashioned but very comfortable and cleaned daily. The staff were friendly and helpful particularly Sai from Goa who gave me some good advice for my forthcoming trip. Breakfast was fairly basic but not bad. Will make you different types of eggs to your liking alongside the small buffet.

    Location is really bad as there is no parking around and the parking staff would force you to park your car in a narrow alley next to dustbin full of stinch.it resulted in my car door hit the bin as there was no space but staff was pushing for it.later the parkinh guy left with no sense of shame

    Not really a negative but be aware that the location is somewhat difficult to find. Be sure to have your GPS handy. Particularly since you are driving through the winding streets to get to the hotel.

    The staff was very friendly and helpful. Thankfully they had free parking available otherwise it would have been nearly impossible to find close parking.

    The location of the hotel is absolutely fantastic;
    • Business trip

    Maybe the hotel corridors could be perfumed with bakhour (traditional Arabian perfume) or other to make it smell better as it smelled awkward at first though we quickly got used to it. Towels were missing from the room but were immediately brought to us on request. There were no toothbrushes or disposable slippers in the bathroom which has you walk with wet feet on the carpeted room. I would also use scented fabric freshners on bed linen, blankets and towels so that we know for sure they are clean as they smelled neutral. This said once you know how the hotel works, you can simply come better equipped the next time around and honestly as a whole, I felt the hotel was good value for the money and I would chose to stay there again in the future.

    The location of the hotel is absolutely fantastic; right next to the unforgettable Bab Al Bahrain Souk and just a short walk from Bahrain world trade center in Manama's business quarter. Excellent if you are planning to take long enjoyable walks around to experience the old more traditional side of Manama. Though definitely not your 5-star hotel, the old hotel matches perfectly the setting of the old souk which I personally found great. As the area is popular with tourists and market-shoppers, it is totally ladies-friendly unlike other parts of the country where I seemed to be the only lady walking around. Lovely if as a family, you are planning to experience the old, traditional and popular side of the city rather than the seclusion of the luxurious 5-star hotels. The indian staffs were nice and helpful. They kindly allowed me to overstay the regular 12-o'clock check-out time by 2 hours which I found was very thoughtful of them. The hotel rooms are quiet and have balconies with views onto the souk where you can have a nice memorable breakfast. The hotel breakfast was simple and ok for me. I would definitely stay there again on my next trip to Bahrain!
