    Exceptional

    This amazing boutique in the heart of Manama is nothing short of exceptional. From the moment you arrive the staff are on-hand to ensure you experience a relaxing, first class stay. From the valet, and reception staff who recognise you by name to everyone at the Indigo restaurant who will do their very best to please. This hotel is super clean, spectacularly decorated to the highest standards. Fresh made chocolate croissants for breakfast are delicious, but try the chocolate fondant it's divine; you'll thank me later!

    Well located in Old Town Manama, next to the main Souk. Rooms are big and very comfortable with good seating areas. Some rooms a bit dark with not much natural light due to proximity of buildings. Nice rooftop restaurant and bar. Friendly staff. Small gym and pool. Good library for afternoon tea.

    Favorite hotel in the GCC

    We spent about 1.5 weeks hopping around GCC states (Qatar, Kuwait, Bahrain, and the UAE). The Merchant House was definitely our favorite hotel during our entire trip, and we are comparing it to institutions like the Mandarin Oriental in Qatar and the Taj in Dubai. Everything was absolutely exceptional. Service was attentive. The masseuse at the spa was great. The hotel is awe-inspiring as soon as you step in with the amount of quirky art on the walls. They kept the original concrete structure/pillars from the old building but it's otherwise completely renovated and to a very high standard. The rooms have a slightly nautical feel with round windows and they all have kitchens (not that we needed this) but it was great to have the extra space. The toiletries are by Ren. There is a gorgeous library on the 2nd floor and a rooftop terrace that are perfect for relaxing. When do you step out of the hotel, you are conveniently located next to the souq/Bab al-Bahrain. There's a wonderful traditional cafe called Haji's that's around the corner from the hotel. You get the best of both worlds in terms of being smack dab in the old city while luxuriating in a new, bougie hotel (I mean this in the best way possible). Staying here means you've hit the sweet spot.

    Housekeeping was outstanding in that anything I wanted I got. The Indian gentleman working the late afternoon/early evening shift whose name I have forgotten was always at my beck and call. Frankly it is impossible to find fault with this hotel. I can only wish it and its staff immeasurable success. It is a place where everyone goes out of their way to not just make you feel at home but assist in every way possible. The very best place to stay in Bahrain. Do not even consider anywhere else.

    Bahrain hidden gem

    Best hotel I’ve stayed at in Bahrain. One of the best hotels in the region. Room was impeccable, service was amazing, artwork galore, plus the best burger to top it off. I’m very impressed.

  • 10.0.Exceptional

    The staff was extremely polite and helpful. The decor of the hotel is not like other hotels in the Middle East- it has more of a western/artsy feel. The staff always called us by name, not just when we called, but when we were in person. The food at the restaurant was delicious, the spa was outstanding, the room was very spacious, clean, and comfortable. I can't wait to stay there again! It's my new favorite hotel in Bahrain (and I've stayed at many) and one of my favorites that I've stayed at worldwide.

    10/10 customer service!

    Amazing customer service and very friendly staff! We had a great new year staycation, the room was very comfy almost like a studio apartment, nothing fancy tbh but everything was great! We loved the lobby and the library having all the artistic pieces, also we loved Indigo Terrace Restaurant as we had our new year’s dinner there and breakfast the next morning, the outdoor seating area is phenomenal! The restaurant a is a must visit even if you decide not to stay at the hotel.
