“A Very Clean 3 Stars Hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 10, 2013

This hotel is very clean. The lobby is very nice and the staff are very helpful.

On each floor there is a vending machine for water or soft drinks (Overpriced).

For a quick stay with safe, clean and reasonable price, this is the one.

There is no parking for this hotel except for a very small side walk next to it that holds 30 cars only so you might end up parking in the street if you come late at night.

Couple of shopping malls and restaurants are nearby.

I would defiantly will come back in god's well.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 2, 2013

Price was excellent but a bit far from anywhere. (My fault...I booked in a hurry and didn't check the location). The room was spotlessly clean. The bed was very comfortable. Free Wifi throughout the hotel and use of a computer in reception...all excellent points.
My room was noiye because of some sort of motor running thoughout the night (perhaps the aircon or lift?) so I had a very disturbed sleep.
The staff were very friendly and helpful.The breakfast was good with a decent choice of fresh items.

Its an ibis standard hotel, so the facilities is really "IBIS Standard"
Nothing special, just the usual facilities.Basics, but good value for money
Location is ok, there's nearby mall so quite convenient to shop for daily needs.
Its a comfortable stay, free internet... so I would say, this is a good choice

Excellent service. Loved the hotel loaction and cleanliness. Very courteous staff and prompt in attending. Very helpful when requested a change of room to a smoking room

Definitely would be recommending the hotel to anyone I know who would be visiting Kuwait.

Travelled on a business trip and stayed in the hotel for a second time. You get the basics at a great price (especially if you compare with other hotels in Kuwait city).
Rooms are on the small side of size but they have the basic amenities to make the stay comfortable and efficient. Free fast wifi is a big plus.
The location is great as you get a few great dining places in 3-5 minutes walking distance.
Minus: Sometimes the service isa little slow, water pressure in higher floors is unstable.

Bottom line: Value for money

Kuwait is a great place to visit and I would recommend it to anyone. This hotel is located within the first ring road so it in walking distance to all of Kuwaits attractions. Most rooms have a view of the oceans as one is very close to the Persian gulf. The hotel is relatively new and the rooms are typical ibis size but clean, nice, and well designed. The hotel does offer a restaurant which I ate at once and found it to be fine. Lots of American food including pork so for business trips where one is not interested in arab culture or food this is a great place to eat. In addition the hotel staff is great and very helpful for information and helpful in getting cabs etc. The neighborhood around the hotel is okay. It is in no way dangerous but perhaps not the most aesthetically pleasing.

Room Tip: Higher floors are better in my opinion.

Dear Guest,

Thank you so very much for the positive comment posted on Tripadvisor.

One remark if you allow me, we dont serve pork in ibis in Kuwait and you may have taken the veal bacon for pork bacon I believe.

Thank you once again and looking forward to welcome you again in near future.
