This is a great hotel, but a little distance from Kuwait City itself. Ideal if you have transportation.
The hotel is in the Free Trade Zone, & at first you do begin to wonder where you are being taken to. There is compliamentary airport transportation from / to the hotel, which takes approx 10 mins (dependant on traffic)
The hotel is on 2 levels, with a choice of restaurants.
Executive rooms are of a good size, plenty of room to 'walk about the room', with seperate seating area. Balcony, mini - fridge, tv, tea/coffee making facilities, writing desk, a/c - thank goodness, linens changed daily, very large bathroom area with seperate bath & hand held shower, plus shower cubicle large enough to have a party in. Seperate wc & bidet. Plenty of bathroom freebies, slippers & bathrobe.
Great pool area, very clean. Large pool, with lazy river & waterfall. Life guard & /or pool attendant on duty. Snacks & refreshments poolside available.
All staff extremely friendly, & will go out of their way to assist - if needed.
Only ate breakfast in hotel, but a good choice for all tastes, buffet style.
Free internet access in rooms, & business centre with computers & printer etc.
Hotel does get busy at the weekends (fri & sat in the gulf), with 'locals' enjoying the facilities, but that should not interrupt your stay.
Hotel is in a strange place, being in the Trade Free Zone, but it is a 'little oasis' of calm.
There can be a 'strange' smell drifting on the breeze. This has NOTHING to do with the hotel, but the area of the port of the Trade Zone. Same smell can also be had in the city itself, & all depends on the wind direction.
I think this hotel is probably more geared towards the business traveller, but travellers with kids, or families should not be put off. Great little kids plat area, & kids pool, so the hotel caters for all ages.
Well worth staying here. Would i stay again?, Well, have done so twice so far this year, & already booked for November.
Go for a pool view.
