3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 3, 2013

If this is supposed to be a 4 star hotel and amongst the 15 best in Kuwait, average hotels here must be really poor. Of course, this is Ibis chain and not Ritz Carlton, you may expect basics and thats it. But considering this, I found it expensive and overrated on tripadvisor. This is just a basic Ibis hotel you would find along any highway in the world and nothing more than a small economy room, shower, toilet, empty fridge and one complimentary bottle of water. For an overnight stay of 5 hours bearable but still expensive, and somewhat overrated here in my opinion. Service was fine.

I had gone on my business trip to Kuwait & stayed at Ibis. The rooms were small, but very neat & clean. Overall the hotel is a good business hotel. The bathroom is also good. Very comfortable & cosy room.

This hotel is located next to the Al Hamra business and high end shopping mall. The value for money is very good and for a business traveller on a budget who is looking for a place to stay that delivers core services it is perfect

4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2013

I arrived late at night and was checked in with the minimum of fuss. The room was clean but a little on the small side but functional, standard Ibis layout. I was surprised to find the minibar was empty but they have a 24 hour cafe so was able to get food and refreshments. The staff were all very professional and friendly. I would stay here on a short trip but for anything longer than a couple of days, I would find the room too small.
