“Physically good hotel but very far from anywhere....”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 24, 2011

Plus:
+ Stay there two times already (in Feb-11 and Jun-11) for 7 days each during business trip
+ Physically , it is a new and very good hotel. Breakfast and buffet varieties are good, service is OK, they always tried to help you.
+ Hotel can arrange visit visa for you together with a luxury airport pickup
+ It has free and fast WIFI connection inside the room, and gym facilities is also quite good.

Minus:
- Location is far from city center, and it is very difficult to get taxi there, except you get out to the main road
- The beach view is dull... nothing really to be seen there. Definitely not for touristic purposes.

Internet was extremely slow and often you can't connect due to "too many user connections" in the hotel. I informed the front desk about a BIG dead roach on the stairwell and it took 5 days for them to remove it. Bedroom vent blows directly on your head as you try to sleep. Cannot get comfortable in shower as water changes between hot and cold every few seconds. Shampoo and lotion are very low quality products. The hotel staff barely speak English so communication is difficult and misunderstandings are common. Beach was never open the 5 months I stayed there and the pool was rarely open. The only positive is that the hotel is cheaper than the rest!

This hotel is actually located in Fintas, little bit outside of Kuwait City, takes only 20 minutes by car to get into the center of Kuwait city, depends on traffic.
The room are very large and you will receive an excellent service. Also the cost performance of this hotel is excellet, this hotel is also located direct on the beach where you have free access. The breakfast buffet is good, as well you have a gym and an indoor pool. 5 minutes from the hotel you will find nice shopping centers and this shopping centers are min. 25 % cheaper than in Kuwait City, I can also recommend the restaurant in this hotel. You will find everything you want.

The Safir Hotel Fintas is a Pleasant enough place.The biggest plus point for me was the fantastic staff.The service in this hotel is always superb.
The rooms are clean and nicely fitted,but beware of the plumbing,we had 3 rooms and two of us could not empty the bath without flooding the bathroom.
Lovely views can be found at the pool/gym on the roof and there is always a lounger to to relax on.
Location is poor if you want an evening out,but if you flag down a cab you can get to Kuwait City for 5Kd,(GBP 12)or Fahaheel for 2Kd,(GBP 5 ),or you can get to Spoons in Fintas for 1Kd,where you will find a selection of restaurants,the Lebonese in the corner being the best.
Overall nice enough,but given the choice,Fahaheel or Kuwait City for me next time.
