The hotel is for those looking to stay for a couple of hours. Very basic and the property is really old and could do with a bit of refurbishment. The location is good and overlooking the corniche making it possibly the cheapest room with a corniche view. All the rooms in very floor face the elevator !!! The food is... More

Stayed at the hotel for two nights. Rather basic business hotel - comfortable rooms and clean reception area. Reasonable quality breakfast. If you do not want to have a fancy hotel for your business stay but just a place which works this could be your alternative.

Instructions as to our pick up time were confused, incorrect and contradictory. A... More

I stayed in this Hotel one week. Several times the room was not cleaned. But the worst thing was that the reception take the double amount from my credit card. The staff was not able to use the machine to cancel this operation. After a very long discussion receptionist go to exchange shop and give me the money in cash.... More

All are attentive to details and guests requests you can notice that by watching guests interact with them as well. hotel in terms of service... More

I have stayed at the Plaza Athenee a couple of times while on business trips. The rooms are reasonably spacious, neat and the service is quite good. They arrange to pick you up from the airport if required. The rates are quite reasonable for a place like Kuwait. The breakfast is average - nothing to rave about.

I stayed at the Plaza Athene during a business trip to Kuwait.The hotel arranged my entry visa and I collected it "airside" at the airport which probably saved me close to 1-hr in queuing time. Once at the hotel the reception wanted to retain my passport and visa...I let them retain the visa (I had a copy) but asked them... More
