  • 10.0.Exceptional

    The staff was extremely polite and helpful. The decor of the hotel is not like other hotels in the Middle East- it has more of a western/artsy feel. The staff always called us by name, not just when we called, but when we were in person. The food at the restaurant was delicious, the spa was outstanding, the room was very spacious, clean, and comfortable. I can't wait to stay there again! It's my new favorite hotel in Bahrain (and I've stayed at many) and one of my favorites that I've stayed at worldwide.

    first boutique hotel in Bahrain, spared no expense

    Outstanding. First quality for everything they use. For starters, an $1800 Jura coffee maker in our room, and I tell you, the best cup of coffee I ever made for myself! They spared no expense in materials, furniture, linens, chefs, door men. For location, if you're a souk shopper, this is ground zero! My longtime jeweler and tailor are now just a short 300feet away. And such a treat with free valet parking in this location too. Their rooftop bar/lounge/dining is impeccably decorated, not to mention quite comfy. You will NOT be disappointed with this choice. You will immediately feel justified in the expense when you arrive, I promise you. Try the smoked duck appetizer! Breakfast made to order, included. -we travel to Bahrain once a month on average, and used to live in Bahrain.

    Best hotel in years

    Absolutely amazing hotel in a fantastic location. From the minute you arrive you are welcomed and the reception were a delight. The suite was absolutely fantastic with great attention to detail. Bed was incredible and the fridge drawer mini bar and coffee maker top notch. Food and service in the roof top restaurant impeccable. Didn’t use the small pool as was too hot in august. Only slight downside is no views. One of the best hotels I’ve stayed in

    Housekeeping was outstanding in that anything I wanted I got. The Indian gentleman working the late afternoon/early evening shift whose name I have forgotten was always at my beck and call. Frankly it is impossible to find fault with this hotel. I can only wish it and its staff immeasurable success. It is a place where everyone goes out of their way to not just make you feel at home but assist in every way possible. The very best place to stay in Bahrain. Do not even consider anywhere else.

    Liked: Everything about this hotel is excellent. I recently spent a week at The Merchant House. The service was impeccable. The décor is sophisticated: artwork throughout, beautiful warm corridors and designer furniture. My impeccably clean suite was equipped with high-end linen and towels, built-in drawer refrigerator/freezer, microwave, beautifully finished cabinetry and may other quality amenities. The food was delicious. There is a separate sitting room/kitchen which gives the suite the feel of a cozy little apartment. When I returned to the hotel after a day’s work it felt like home which is perhaps the best compliment I could pay this establishment. Highly recommended.

    Really nice boutique hotel

    This is a really nice hotel in a great city centre location for seeing central Manama. Staff are excellent, very attentive, and nothing is too much trouble. We received a complimentary room upgrade and a late check out without having to ask, which was a nice touch. Parking is valet and it only takes 5-10 minutes for the staff to retrieve the vehicle. Room decor is really nice, the rooms are a good size, and the facilities are excellent, and there is even a $1,000 bean to cup Jura coffee maker in every room that makes excellent coffee. Expect normal city centre noises though. It's not a remote location. The restaurant here is very good. It is a rooftop garden setting, again with interesting boutique decor. Due to Covid we were given the choice of 2 options each for breakfast from the a la carte menu, which was more than enough. We also ate dinner here on the launch date of their new seafood menu. Both the bouillabaisse and the sea bream were excellent, as were the ssamyang rib and halloumi and beetroot salad starters. The only downside to the restaurant was that certain wines were not available and there was no draught beer at the time of our stay, but this was a minor inconvenience. Overall, this is a great hotel with good quality rooms, fantastic staff and great food.

    10/10 customer service!

    Amazing customer service and very friendly staff! We had a great new year staycation, the room was very comfy almost like a studio apartment, nothing fancy tbh but everything was great! We loved the lobby and the library having all the artistic pieces, also we loved Indigo Terrace Restaurant as we had our new year’s dinner there and breakfast the next morning, the outdoor seating area is phenomenal! The restaurant a is a must visit even if you decide not to stay at the hotel.
