My stay was a one night stay snd thats why I can nt talk about all the hotel aspects. However let me srart by saying a nice reception area, good friendly staff and quick check in and very late free checkout until 3. The hall way for the rooms is very nice and stylish. Bed room, well bed is great king size or queen size because of its size. The room is big and lighting is very good. It has a big window which is nice to get the sun in but dont expect a view because the view is unpleasant. However at night you can leave the curtains open and lights are nice outdide. The room has iron , hairdryer and iron board with fridge and you will be greater with a fruit basket and sweets platter. The toilet is very nice and well equiped with all what you need but no toothbrushes. The down side of the room is the small LCD TV and bad reception on most of the channels. The hotel has to introduce pay per view and has to improve the reception. The room comes with free wifii. The other thing which is snnoying is the car park. The hotel parks your car in the sun heat of kuwait summer and this is not something to experience. Overall compared to kuwait hotels the hotel is nice and is close to many malls near by but not on a private beach. The food is nice and you get a variety of things to choose from. Therefore I will go back to this hotel again.

Good location in Kuwait city. I was there on a business trip.
The room is comfortable until you turn off the lights and try to sleep. It is then that you realize that your darkened room isn't so dark after all. The flood-lit facade of the hotel makes sure that bright light penetrates into your room. The flood lights are extinguished at 1 a.m. I think but the hotel needs to make sure their curtains are flood-light proof.

Perfect stay, no complaints. Good services, great breakfast and decent data speeds.
Overall I would recommend for anyone needing to do business in downtown.
It was my 1st time in Kuwait - so nothing to compare it with.

Just a one-night stop over in Kuwait, but the hotel seemed to be quite good. Check in and check out were certainly very quick and staff friendly.

Room was clean and comfortable, and free wi-fi always appreciated. Breakfast was not too bad, and typical for a Gulf business hotel. Only issue would be the smoking in the lobby restaurant - really noticeable these days when so many places are smoke free. Otherwise good hotel and good value, so will be back.
