An extremely reasonably priced four-star hotel in the centre of Manama, the Gulf Gate is well serviced with internet access, a business centre, gym and swimming pool. Don’t expect modern decor in the rooms, the mismatched interior won’t appeal to many Western travellers, but the furnishings are nonetheless of excellent quality, boasting goose down pillows and soft cotton sheets to drift off to sleep in. There’s a 24-hour coffee shop – perfect for late arrivals and night owls – a pub, an Arabic restaurant and nightclub. Located in the Diplomatic Area, it’s near to the souk and shopping centres.
