Very old hotel, not clean, i woke up finding an insect creeping beside me on the bed, no hangers, minibar is empty. Bad wifi, smoky rooms. No shuttle. Phone was not working you have to call the reception and they make the call for you.

The Website for this Hotel (http://www.plazaatheneekuwait.com/en/rooms.html) is A COMPLETE FARCE....The HOTEL is more of a MOTEL...There is no "Top Chef" working at a restaurant...There is no restaurant..there is only a dumpy Army themed Cafe where one could get their meals...Breakfast offerings were disgusting...The rooms were dirty with extremely worn out furniture...Bed linens, carpets, and furniture had stains or burn holes,...

I stayed there in January. First of all, if you book through expedia or bookings beware of the address. It's not actually located near the Kuwait towers as indicated on the Map. It's a half hour walk. But the distance is not the issue. I've never been in a room that made me not want to stay. I've stayed in... More

The hotel is for those looking to stay for a couple of hours. Very basic and the property is really old and could do with a bit of refurbishment. The location is good and overlooking the corniche making it possibly the cheapest room with a corniche view. All the rooms in very floor face the elevator !!! The food is... More

Stayed at the hotel for two nights. Rather basic business hotel - comfortable rooms and clean reception area. Reasonable quality breakfast. If you do not want to have a fancy hotel for your business stay but just a place which works this could be your alternative.
