I had been a guest at Carlton mutiple times for work, the only reason to stay in hotel is because of its location. The house keeping was worse, I had keep asking for the basic stuff in the room like a bath towel, or drinking water. The Air condition is out dated ,it is either too cold or too hot.

I stayed 2 night in this hotel. Although it was very hard to find, I end up enjoying my stay. The hotel staff were not very welcoming, but also not rude. They were just OK. My bedroom was very nice, all new facilities and clean. Toilet fully equipped and with all necessary products. Breakfast was rich and with a wide... More

I stayed 7 nights during a business trip and was very happy with the room, and the staff's attention. They were prompt to respond when I reported my remote control not working. The hotel was at a perfect location (at least for me), with a wonderful Indian restaurant across the street, a great coffee shop around the corner, and within... More

This was a poor choice for a budget hotel. Very old and tired decor, relatively clean rooms however during our 4 nite stay we had to ask for towels each day after the room was cleaned! WIFI worked sporadically and was frustrating to even keep up with emails. Staff were somewhat friendly but had little knowledge of Kuwait City which... More

The hotel is a little more of an authentic experience than staying in a chain hotel. Obviously, with an independent / family owned operation you take a little more of a risk. I am glad to report that I didn't regret staying here, although things weren't perfect. I appreciated the transfer from the airport and the fact that the hotel's... More

Due to the lack of budget accommodations, I decided to stay at the Carlton Tower Hotel. I had the same issue with the airport shuttle. First of all, they never answered my e-mails, which I sent to the address provided by the booking website and on their website, there was no e-mail address and when I booked the shuttle for... More

The quality of the hotel is ok. The service is good and it is close to everything. The only problem is that in their website they say that a shuttle is available to the airport for free but in fact you have to pay for it. They should remove that from the web.
