Where to stay in Bahrain

So if you are planning to visit Bahrain during this time you will need to find accommodation. As things fill up fast and early you are better off booking your Hotels in Bahrain and Car Rental in Bahrain as early as possible so that you can get the best prices available. It is also wise to book your flights to Bahrain as soon as you can for the same reason.

Any Hotel in Bahrain will provide quick and easy access to the cuircuit as Bahrain is quit a small country so Hotels in Manama,such as the Gulf Hotel in Seef or Muharraq will be acceptable. The only Hotel near the track is the Banyan Tree Spa, built in 2006, this may not appeal to all as it is far from central Manama and the nightspots.
