I've stayed in the holiday Inn a number of times and while the chain is a relatively 'budget' hotel in Europe I was pleasantly surprised by the Kuwait chain. Well located across the road from the Corniche, the hotel has a good gym, nice buffet breakfast and a range of restaurants including a steak house and sushi bar. The crab...

Holiday Inn Salmiya is impressive for all that offers.

Breakfast is OK Gym is OK Swimming pool is small Rooms are small. The most annoying thing though is that staff will ignore DND sign and still knock at your door at 11 pm or call you on the phone. If you think a hotel is a place for sleeping, then that can be an issue.

A very comfortable stay. Quiet neighborhood and easy to find taxis whether directly from the street or through the hotel. I call more of a business stay hotel... Area is not attracting, so if you plan for a family or fun stay this might not be a fun area.

The ambience here is very casual and relaxing. My friends and I have been here since 2015 . Staff service is always good though can be a bit more attentive. Always my first choice of hotel when I visit Kuwait.
