Where to stay in Manama

Manama waterfront areas boast many hotel chains playing a game of one-upmanship to see who can get higher and more luxurious than the rest. The Modern and Post-Modern skyscrapers contain luxury hotels with onsite malls, swimming pools, spas, and fine-dining restaurants. Look farther inland for simpler hotels, as well as rental apartments, guesthouses, and bed and breakfasts in the residential, older districts.
