I have just returned from a five night stay at the Ibis Sharq and found it to be very clean and well-run. Staff very honest and helpful and the location is good for access to the Souk area, Kuwait Towers and the Sharq Souk. The hotel has limited leisure facilities, but it proved a comfortable base from which to explore the city. I would certainly stay there again.

The Ibis Hotel in the Sharq neighborhood of Kuwait City is a good, clean, well-run and well appointed hotel, and the price can't be beat.

Rooms are small and effecient, and offer just what you need for a good nights rest. There is a restaurant on-site and the internet is free. Multi-lingual (Arabic/English) speaking staff are pleasant and helpful.

KSA friendly.

P.S. There is a popular Indian restaurant right next to the hotel.

i have been over there twice at ibis Sharq, its really worth it to be there its not comprise for them but this the truth , First impression the style of the room and bathrooms as well all of 19 floor are same standard with high standard of service even the TV . The good things also they have mention from outside the price to weekend and weekday . No hidden charges like Dubai hotels

The reception and staff was great specially the Egyptian guy i forgot his name he was really helpful at night shift .

We hope see more service like parking because its not even Enough 10 guests.

Thanks
