Review: Hilton Garden Inn Bahrain Bay, King Corner Room


Hilton Garden Inn Bahrain Bay

After staying one night at the InterContinental Regency Bahrain, it was time to spend my second and last night in Bahrain at this Hilton property. Having Hilton diamond status, I was excited to check out this hotel as it has been receiving great reviews and of course, the photo of the pool from the website was to die for.

I arrived just before 2pm and was helped by a very friendly associate. Check-in went smoothly and moments later, I was on the way to the room with my card keys. From the Hilton app, I was able to know beforehand that I had been upgraded to a corner room.

The Avenues Mall


There was no question that I would stay in one of the two Hilton hotels in Bahrain during this visit. The newly opened Hilton Bahrain was cheaper on my dates but it was a bit far from the city center so I ended up paying more to stay at the Hilton Garden Inn Hotel. I already fell in love with this hotel when I saw the photos of the pool and learned that it was directly connected to the mall The Avenues. The location is perfect as I was also able to take the boat trip which starts near The Avenues promenade. The room upgrade I got was impressive as I loved the views especially in the evening. The room was well appointed and felt spacious and modern. The breakfast buffet had everything I wanted and lastly, the staff I had contact with were all friendly. Overall, I really loved my stay here and would gladly stay here again when I´m back in Bahrain. To all the staff of Hilton Garden Inn Bahrain Bay, Shukran 😍
