“One night in Bahrain”
Reviewed 31 January 2012

Indeed hard to find with the car due to the one way streets but once you know it no problem and free parking, friendly staff and nice rooms. Considering the value of a night good for your money. No WIFI on the 6th floor but its on the ground floor only spend one night but will come back one day.

Room Tip: Pre set the GPS location of the hotel in your smart phone

This Hotel has great location, in walking distance to Bab Al Bahrain, and Post office, earlier I was disappointed with the narrow one way road's lead towards Hotel, But thanks to Hotel Staff they have Vallet parking available for guest which just behind the Hotel choose your spot well else you might be boxed park as I was.

Awal means number One- but they are expecting 3 Stars, which will let unfold discotheque and other facilities, It offers Free Wifi and cable connection, Rooms are well spacious, clean with retro T.V sets, had a comfortable sleep on Bed after good stroll at souqs.

Walk at Souq's is must duty for all tourist It has every thing to offer, Pure Veg & Fast food restaurants, shops, Temple and mosques.

All of this at very economical price at Awal Hotel.

Room Tip: A View from small Balcony is cluster of Buildings possibly try to get high floors

The on site restaurant is closed, the bars are closed. Gym wasn't found.

Furniture is getting tired, sheets and towels are tearing up from wear. Contrary to what many descriptions say wifi is not available in rooms. Only in lobby. The ethernet connection in the rooms is pretty fast though. Th TV's in the rooms are old, and receptionis bad. I could not see any english language channels without "snow" on the screen.

The balcony door can't be locked.The shuttle is filthy dirty on the inside.Toiletpaper seemed to be a commodity. Non smoking room gave me a headache from tobacco smell.

Good points: Staff seemed to realize the deficiencies, and were super helpful and friendly.
