Review: InterContinental Regency Bahrain, an IHG Hotel

InterContinental Bahrain, an IHG Hotel

Looking for a hotel to stay at on my first night in Bahrain, I searched Google hotels and luckily found a very good rate for the InterContinental Bahrain for my date. The reviews of the hotel from Trip Advisor were mostly good including those from Flyertalk so I decided I would definitely spend a night here. Needless to stay, I made the right choice as this is surely one of the best hotels in Bahrain!

Exploring the Area

The hotel has a perfect location as it is just steps away from the Manama Souq, Bab Al Bahrain and Khalaf House and the Sacred Heart Catholic Church among others.

I was just so glad I stayed at the Intercontinental Regency Bahrain considering it was my first time to visit this Gulf country. First the 5-star service, then the lovely room, the extensive breakfast buffet and lastly the friendly staff. Of course, the great location making you steps away from the top attractions was perfect. Although the hotel is showing signs that it needs some renovations, for the rate I paid, I could not complain. Overall, I had a very enjoyable stay and would highly recommend it to everyone. To all the staff of InterContinental Regency Bahrain, Shukran 😍
