"Another wonderful experience"

5
User 26/05/2022

I've stayed at the Gulf Hotel on and off for the past 3 years and can't commend the hotel and their staff highly enough. The hotel has suffered during the COVID crisis but is now back to pre pandemic levels of occupancy, but their attention to personal service has not wavered throughout. If you come to Bahrain, stay at the Gulf Hotel, you won't be disappointed.

"Highlight of our trip in Bahrain"

User 21/05/2022

I would like to take this opportunity to thank the staffs of Sato Japanese Restaurant in Gulf Hotel Bahrain especially to Chef Kevin and Ms. Karen Santos. It was indeed a memorable experience being a tourists in Bahrain, it definitely made our trip extra special from the quality of food that is really tasty, that really exceeds our expectations down to the professionalism and attentiveness of the staffs. The entire hotel was really elegant.

"La Pergola - One of Bahrain's Best Italian Restaurants!"

thomasdN6117MR, Secaucus, New Jersey 21/05/2022

When I travel to Bahrain, I often stay at the Gulf Hotel. It has so many excellent restaurants one cannot go wrong! Last night, I chose to go Italian - since I happen to be Italian. It was the best choice I made on my current business trip. I ordered the "Linguini ai frutti di Mare" (Linguini pasta, calamari, clams, shrimp, cherry tomatoes and basil). The waiter, a gentleman named Umesh, made for an incredible meal - from start to finish. He returned at just the right times to check how everything was going - and even brought a special (free) treat from the chef! I find it's rare to find the perfect waiter or waitress. That night I was indeed fortunate! My next trip back to Bahrain will include a trip back to this Italian restaurant! (Hoping for a repeat performance!)

"Royal Thai - Best Thai Restaurant and Service in Bahrain!!"

5
User 14/05/2022

I've been searching for the best Thai restaurant in Bahrain and was lucky to have found Royal Thai in Gulf Hotel. The food is amazing - favorite: Pad Thai, Tom Yum and Stir Fried Vegetables. Legit Thai food taste. Everything we ordered was so satisfying. They have the best staff also - hospitable, friendly and very helpful. Special regards to Alex and Chef Wasame and sincere thanks for making our family lunch experience really remarkable. :) The ambience is very nice and the view from the outside reminds me of Asia. Overall, very satisfied!

"Worst experience ever"

1
User 07/05/2022

I booked an executive apartment for a relative's wedding. I was supposed to receive the apartment at 1 pm because i had hair and makeup coming to get me ready for the wedding. We stayed from 1pm. Until 5pm and did not receive the apartment!!!! We had to physically go to a salon to get ready and my father stayed to check in but didn't receive it until 5:30pm!!!!! If i could rate the experience a 0 i would. Even when we got it the apartment had no bath robes no towels no tissues. Like i don't understand the bad management and bad service we got. It is supposed to be a 5 star hotel but the experience we had was maybe 1 star. I do not recommend. I would never do that again.

It's Eid, the hotel and its restaurants are packed; but that doesn't affect the service of JoAnn and the staff. Service was outstanding; warm, friendly and on task, and Chef made an impressive Sichuan Lobster. Why do we keeping coming back might you ask? Because we feel like we are treated like we are special that's why.

User 05/05/2022

We have just spent a week at Gulf hotel bahrain. This is our first visit . Customer service here is absolutely amazing and could not be faulted . We got a chance to dine in the Italian restaurant and it was our best choice ever as the food and service was supreme. Aswin was our server the other day and he is really a great asset to the restaurant as he was knowledgeable, very keen and takes the utmost care while looking after the table. The kids enjoyed the pizza and the amuse bouche was just a perfect start to our meal. The hotel has all the cuisines under one hub and it is a great place to stay. Looking forward for the next visit.

"Special holiday"

Juliet M, Canterbury, Kent 20/04/2022

We stayed for a holiday. There were initial problems with our room ,but this was soon sorted out by the very efficient reception staff. Where ever we went in the hotel all the staff were delightful and so friendly and welcoming. I forget the name of the lady in charge at breakfast but she always arranged a cushion for my Mother's back. Such a kind and thoughtful lady. I am sorry I can't remember more names to thank them. We enjoyed the Gulf night out as well as dinner in the Mexican restaurant.

"Great Hotel With Fantastic Staff"

User 15/04/2022

Fantastic Stay with fantastic staff! The hotel was my home for two weeks and everyone is welcoming and will help out as much as possible. With it being Ramadan there were three restaurants open inside and the marquee buffet. Michael by the pool was always there to welcome me when I got back to the hotel after work with brilliant service. La Pergola the Italian is very nice, run by Aswil and the waiters, they were quick to recognize me and would be incredibly attentive and make dining a pleasure, and always went the extra mile. Roshan in the Khaimah Al Khaleej the Marquee with the buffet, did an amazing job aswell, got me to try new things, and was very helpful. All in all a fantastic Stay

I stayed in Gulf Hotel for almost 3 weeks during a work contract for the F1 Grand Prix… this is the second time I stay here and I want to thank all the staff for making yet again our stay a wonderful experience… you are always greeted with smiles, and authentic warmth, apart from first class service… In particular I want to thank Wude from the pool area, for her lovely attitude, as well as all the house keeping team, always friendly and efficient - especially Airoby… And also the restaurant staff and the gym staff… super friendly and pleasant… I look forward to being back next year to this home away from home…!

"Stunning hotel complex with so much to offer!"

goodguyjas, London, United Kingdom 19/03/2022

Magnificent hotel, conference centre and spa with everything you need. Absolutely grand presentation. Glorious looking reception and restaurant area with so much space to sit and relax. Lots of restaurants within the complex. Overwhelmed by the choice plus actual bar and pub style bar too. Coffee shop. The works. Great staff and food selections. You could live in the hotel! Finding your room is a bit of a trek but was surprised to find I had a small apartment with kitchen, sitting room, along with bathroom and separate bedroom. Living space had it all and more. Bath had water jets. Invigorating!Stunning room - Very clean, well kept and maintained. Great room maintenance staff. Staff are amazing throughout In all areas. So helpful. I came here for the F1 and had such a great experience. Buses to and from the circuit. Perfect. Nearby you can walk to the amazing Grand Mosque or a smallish Mall. There is also the Museum and park area too with water view not too far on foot. Taxis and Uber are cheap to get you about from here. Lovely outside area with nice lagoon style pool and garden with sunbathing area. Not too far from the airport either. Perfect location to explore Manama and other areas in Bahrain.

"Really Disappointed!"

2
User 18/03/2022

I was really looking forward to a weekend break at The Gulf. Unfortunately, the welcome at reception lacked any real sense of being welcomed. No pleases, no smiles, no intro to the hotel, no booking for dinner that I had requested. Beyond that - oh and the deluxe room that had a loose loo seat, an intermittent working phone and a really noisy air on. However, the dinner was AMAZING hosted by Jithu and just delicious. Moving out to the pool bars for drinks incredible. Breakfast again top! As with any other top quality hotel, I expected to sign for drinks etc on my room - as did the staff. I had staff apologising and asking for payment at the facilities. I saw several other guests experiencing the same and having to back to their rooms to collect cards. A great pool, good restaurants let down by really poor front of house admin. Funnily enough, as I was completing the review below I got to the box asking whether staff were multilingual - the restaurant and bar staff were, but front of house lacked any courtesy in the English language and an inability to answer questions effectively.

User 09/03/2022

This is a lovely hotel with the delicious dining options. Rasoi and Fusions are great for a special occasions while Takht Jamsheed has the most splendid comfort food with stews and dips. Tara at Al Waha is very courteous, efficient and always remembers your breakfast order.

dirk9980, Berlin, Germany 04/03/2022

I was staying at the Gulf Hotel for two nights during a business trip to Bahrain. The Hotel is a Little bit older and some small items need renovation. On the other hand it offers a Cody atmosphere that modern buildings are missing. The food in all restaurants that we tried was very good and plentiful. I will certainly return here when I travel to Bahrain again.

"Not Good Unfortunately"

1
Shaun B, Bicker, United Kingdom 05/02/2022

I normally try my best to say something good about hotels as they have a hard enough job, especially at the moment. This hotel was pretty bad though. It was so bad that we had booked 2 nights but checked out after 1. The room was noisy and the water was lukewarm at best. At breakfast it was mandatory to wear masks but lots didn't and the staff failed to deal with them appropriately. I tried to tell a guy to put his mask on but he didn't listen, yet the staff kept serving him. Following breakfast, my wife wanted to sit by the pool, however it was under repair. If this had been noted on the website, I wouldn't have booked. Finally, I had been informed that the sherlock holmes bar was good however, you can't go in unless you are not worried about a huge amount of passive smoking and smell. We moved out after 1 very expensive night for a hotel that didn't have all the facilities and is tired at best.

"Disappointing and not a 5 star property"

houl, Dubai, United Arab Emirates 04/02/2022

From check in to departure the service was nothing but basic functional at best . With the exception of the ladies in the Spa who were friendly and seemed to enjoy their jobs . This is not a 5 star hotel - at best a 4 . Booked via travel agent platinum room and on check in told it is standard room only - whilst still showing the Confirmation - refused and then told to pay extra for what I booked . Any asks or requests required numerous follow ups . Front desk clearly need training on how to deliver a 5 star service - witnessed numerous guests complaining about the service / rooms . Overall the experience was very disappointing- the staff appear to be unhappy / lack interest in their jobs . Hotel is well overdue a renovation .

we live near by Gulf hotel and visited the Royal Thai restaurant often on weekend, and enjoy some drinks at cozy Typhoon Bar afterwards. but we have been always very confused, how ist the VAT calculated in their billing system... as the VAT is increased from 5% to 10% in 2022, we are getting more curious to figure it out, ha... may be someone can help to solve the puzzle? ( i believe, the Govt Levy is calculated with 5.5% not 5%...)

Every visitor to Bahrain must try this unique and one-of-a-kind experience at the Sato Restaurant. This Japanese delight offers an endless choice of cold and hot tasty authentic Japanese treats from a big range of Sochi and Sashimi to Teppanyaki. Best Japanese food I've tried so far in Bahrain. Very original recipes and first quality products. What makes it even more special is the superior skill and accommodating style of their Sushi Chefs “Kevin” / “Tata” / “Chris”, the classy hospitality of the restaurant manager “Jo”, as well as the commendable service of the courteous servers. Sato will stay on your mind for a long time. Cheers with a giant thump up.

What a great hotel, nothing too much trouble. Whilst here for work I had some time socialising with friends and Wude at the pool bar is by far the best hostest I have ever had. Humble and honest nothing was too much trouble a credit to the Gulf. The housekeeping and breakfast were also superb. I would highly recommend this hotel for business pleasure or even a family stay. Will definitely return.

This was my first time in Bahrain. The Gulf hotel team arranged for my pick up in a luxury car and the reception area was like Kings palace feeling. I was really impressed by the welcoming & the services provided at the hotel. the staff are very friendly and adaptive. They have variety of food restaurants and the food is delicious. Totally worth and satisfied. Will surely visit again.. and yes I would love to rate 5star. Specially would like to mention about Ms Preeti, who helped me to allot room & explain all the facilities.

The hotel is beautiful, the staff are all so friendly. Their outlets and great with great food and ambiance. We had lunch at Sato and it was excellent and dinner at Mexicana and the music and food was lovely and delicious. We love everything about the Gulf Hotel. Every time we visit they never fail to impress us.

Great location close to the nightlife of adilayia. Good selection of restaurants inside the hotel. Typhoon is particularly good for happy hour drinks. Request a room on the revamped side of the hotel as some rooms On the far side are starting to look very old now.

My wife and I enjoyed a long weekend (anniversary) at the Gulf Hotel in Nov 21. We were met at reception by the wonderful Preeti; a lovely lady ,a delight to talk to,and who had a wealth of knowledge in regard to the local area and the numerous choice of restaurants in the hotel itself. The rooms are large with a comfortable bed and a superb rain shower to sooth a weary traveler. Fusion Restaraunt and rooftop are is well worth a visit; the food and choice of wines is excellent and the service, impeccable. We were also delighted to meet the hostess of the rooftop bar, Esperanza, who is a true professional and a wealth of information. Highly recommend the Gulf Hotel.

We love our time at the Gulf. The staff is so welcoming and excel at making the guests feel comfortable and pampered. Wude is the best along with Michael at the pool bar, with Ivan and his staff supporting guests, and all the restaurants provide a multitude of choice with culinary excellence. Foyzhod Rahman kept our room clean and supplied. The Gulf is the premiere choice when stying in Bahrain. We cannot wait to get back.

Typhoon has a great outdoor seating area and is great when the weather is getting cooler. There were many choices of drinks during Happy Hour and priced very reasonably - BD2 only. Selection of food was good for a lounge. I tried the Tempura and the Chicken Taco. Both were lovely and hit the spot. The ever attentive Mary was always nearby and my drink was never empty. Thanks for the nice experience!

Unbelievable service. I have been in the country for a week and the food and attentiveness was bar none. Today was butchers night here which included premium cut steaks and sides as well as a tailored assortment of international cuisines. My servers Roshon and Aswin were incredible and never missed a beat in taking care of me. I will be back tomorrow specifically because of their hard work. If you like diverse meals and a good deal, you should have been here five minutes ago!

"My awesome room care provider Regina!"

5
User 01/11/2021

We have been long term guests at the Gulf Hotel due to relocating. Honestly, I have several reviews I want to post. The Gulf Hotel's greatest asset is it's staff! Regina, from housekeeping, has been the most frequent room care provider. EVERY provider has been wonderful, but Regina just shines every, and I do mean every time I open the door and she is standing on the other side waiting to come in to provide service. She makes ME feel like SHE's the privileged one to come in and provide service instead of me being honored to have such a lovely, sweet, and wonderful staff member coming in to clean up behind us. I understand staff getting moved around based on needs of the entire hotel. Regina had recently gotten reassigned to another area. But, I do have to admit, last night my husband asked me if I would like him to request to have Regina assigned to our room, if possible. This morning, to my delight!!!! (Even before my husband could make the request) I opened the door to the most beautiful smiling eyes above a covid mask!

The hospitality was top notch and the customer service was flawless. It was my husbands Bday and they did everything to make him feel special. The accommodations for the children that attended was above expectations. I did not expect them to serve the children separate food from the seafood. They took such good care of the children. They sang Happy Birthday and celebrated with us. The buffet was plentiful and had a wide variety of choices. The food was absolutely delicious and my group of 15 had the best time and experience. The best part was the flawless service. Aswin was extremely accommodating and always making sure that we were taken care of. He treated the children with great care and respect and was very sweet. Thank you for a most amazing night! Kassandra Icban

I've been staying here in the Residence section, but have full access to the hotel facilities which are fantastic. The gym is nice, if not a little crowded in the PMs, but the trainers there are friendly and engaged. Ditto for the breakfast staff! One person I'd like to point out in particular is Gina, the housekeeper who is amazing, always friendly, always making sure my apartment has what I need (water in particular!) She, like many other of the staff, are what truly make a place like the Gulf Hotel worth visiting.

"Beautiful Hotel; Exceptional Service"

607misterj, Manama, Bahrain 06/08/2021

The pictures are great, but you have to see and experience this place in person. It really is a beautiful hotel. It is one of those things at first sight when you go up the escalators, you are greeted by the opulence of the lobby. The front desk staff are very helpful and friendly, so you know that it is going to be a good stay. I really like the dining options here. You can really try a different type of cuisine everyday if you are staying here for an extended period of time (such as business, or vacation/holiday). This hotel offers 10 different dining options from International/Local, Thai, Chinese, Japanese, Iranian, Indian, Mexican, Fusion, Lebanese, Italian (though some establishments may be temporarily closed due to COVID, which is understandable). So far, I have been lucky to dine at many of the restaurants here at the hotel and they have done great, especially when immersing you into the regional environment with pretty accurate décor and delicious food offerings. I'm quite impressed with my dining experience. I would say that find myself returning to Al Waha quite often (the "open space" restaurant that is next to the lobby and will be able to see as you walk through the hotel). It is also the restaurant offers breakfast, lunch and dinner options. I also enjoy returning here because of the exceptional service I receive here. Since I have been staying in the hotel for an extended stay, I have become a recognizable face and some of the staff like Mr. Jithu and Mr. Aswin have gone out of their way to say hello even if I'm not dining and just walking through the hotel. When I do dine there, it's like I'm a close friend and receive great recommendations on what to try. I am quite confident Jithu and Aswin (along with the rest of the friendly staff) will do the same for you when you visit as well. When you are making plans to Manama, you truly should stay and dine at the Gulf Hotel Bahrain. Not only is it a popular and local favorite, it lives up to its reputation as a 5 star luxury hotel so you won't be disappointed!

Our thanks to all the staff at the hotel for making our stay as easy and comfortable as possible while working under the daily pressures that Covid gives. Having the government change rules for dining and entertainment is not easy but everyone dealt with it and should be commended for their professionalism. Our 2nd stay (under Covid conditions) and we will book again. Great facilities, the spa , pool and restaurants.

"Lighting is stupid"

User 19/07/2021

Like every other hotel in the world, their lighting system is ridiculous and sucks! STOP with the complicated BS. Lights should switch on and off at the source....period. There is no need for this crap that you have. The little panel beside the bed doesn't work and isn't an amenity. It's dumb. Turning on and off a light at the source is such a simple process. Why over complicate it?! Oh and if there is a king size bed, there should be king size pillows. No one, and I repeat, no one, wants a series of pillows to sleep on. That is dumb too. Keep it simple.

I just happened to be returning to my room at the same time the housekeeper was leaving. I asked if he could wait just a moment while I checked the room. He was very professional and spoke my native language well. He responded "Sure sir." After a quick scan of the room and bathroom, it was spotless, well stocked, and smelled fresh. I asked his name and he said Katkuri Sai Kiran. At first he thought it was to report him because there was something wrong, but I indicated just the opposite - that he takes his job seriously and that he is doing an excellent job! I normally stay at this hotel each time I visit Bahrain. This is one of the reasons why!

Mohshen Nasrallah, Jodelyn,Jocelyn, SoukaAina Sail, Kassim Makokha,Heerah Lal k, Makesh Reddy,Katerina Yanhol. Are just a few of the people that made my stay INCREDIBLE!!!, I am leaving off the Dining Managers and supervisor and great COOKS...all the front desk and room service personnel as well. I have never seen such a well coordinated team work in unity as I experienced here at the GULF HOTEL, I am planning my next visit in August to BAH and of course I will go see my friends at the Gulf,they made my Quarantine stay a pleasure. This time im going there as i go out on vacation and look forward to the pool, gym resteraunts and relaxing Atmosphere. If you don't visit the Gulf Hotel in Bahrain you are missing out on the #1 hotel in Bahrain.

This hotel is fantastic. Very kind to all people from all walks of life. I want to highlight Janak who went above and beyond to see that we were comfortable in the hotel. He made multiple trips to our room to bring us wine glasses ice and a bottle opener.

"Bad treatment"

User 09/07/2021

The staff and management at the spa/fitness have a low level of hospitality and are not competent in dealing with guests. You always feel like they're doing you a favor and that the hotel is beyond your reach, even though you paid for it.

Sri Hari Manthena provided excellent house keeping during my 2 month stay in the Gulf Hotel. The hotel's other services were very accommodating to my every need as well. Highly recommend staying here.

Wonderful hotel with a very professional staff. Saikiran from housekeeping was very polite and did an excellent job. He should be recognized by management as this is a difficult time given the pandemic.

"Comfortable stay, great staff, not so great food"

User 05/06/2021

Rooms are quite spacious, clean and liveable. Staff and house keeping services were great, all staff extremely friendly - shout out and extra special thanks to Sukrain and Nissam for their great friendly and efficient service and care. The hotel in general is quite expensive though, even for regular laundry services. The room service menu was not so great, the range and availability of food was minimal and I felt quite ill after almost every meal- something to take note of.
