Would stay there again
Nothing to complain about. My original room shower had an issue with the heated water. They very quickly moved me to another room that was even bigger. Room service and reception were quick and super polite. Would stay there again for sure. The angus steak in the rooftop resturant was amazing!

This small boutique hotel located in heart of Manama - Bab Al Bahrain, it is crowed area but traffic is smooth, has a fancy reception, and other settings areas such library, rooftop restaurants. The staff are also friendly. You’re going enjoy it if you’re into this type of small, I still enjoy large hotels that offer good room view, but my wife enjoy this small boutique so much.

Best hotel in years
Absolutely amazing hotel in a fantastic location. From the minute you arrive you are welcomed and the reception were a delight. The suite was absolutely fantastic with great attention to detail. Bed was incredible and the fridge drawer mini bar and coffee maker top notch. Food and service in the roof top restaurant impeccable. Didn’t use the small pool as was too hot in august. Only slight downside is no views. One of the best hotels I’ve stayed in

Liked: Everything about this hotel is excellent. I recently spent a week at The Merchant House. The service was impeccable. The décor is sophisticated: artwork throughout, beautiful warm corridors and designer furniture. My impeccably clean suite was equipped with high-end linen and towels, built-in drawer refrigerator/freezer, microwave, beautifully finished cabinetry and may other quality amenities. The food was delicious. There is a separate sitting room/kitchen which gives the suite the feel of a cozy little apartment. When I returned to the hotel after a day’s work it felt like home which is perhaps the best compliment I could pay this establishment. Highly recommended.
