“Good, affordable place - Typical IBIS”
Reviewed January 20, 2013

Typical IBIS in every respect - just the way I like it :)

Locationwise a bit away from downtown, with essentially only one dining option I could see (an Indian place next door), and no super markets nearby.

During the day walking a few blocks to more commercial areas is no problem (in winter, that is...)

Away from major streets, so you can expect quiet rooms.

I had some problems with the hotel organizing me a cab to the airport, but that may have been a singular problem.

Overall a good choice in Kuwait.

Very friendly staff, Front desk especially Miss ANA very professional lady. I like the hotel very much, it right in the city center and close to all important area of the City. The rooms are very quiet no A/C noise clean rooms. Breakfast was Ok not much choices, and had good access to Wifi and the signal strength was very good.

Room Tip: I always stay in this Hotel last time I stay 7 nights great Hotel for the value of the money Makeup...

I stayed for 4 nights on a business trip to Kuwait and I found this hotel really nice and total value for money. The rooms are nicely done though little small as compared to other business hotel. This is no fringe hotel wherein you will not find room service concept. The location is average as there are malls and market in the vicinity which can be walked.
The staff is courteous and helpful. Breakfast is good and you can enjoy uninterrupted internet connectivity through Wifi. Overall good hotel.

Room Tip: Higher floor rooms ...as they will give you better view.

The room was adequate & neat and I had a good view of the sea from the 15th floor.

The breakfast was good and reasonable charges, the entire hotel had access to free wi-fi and there were no charges for printing of documents so as a business trip I found it good value.

I stayed one night at this hotel. The rate was good and it included free wifi (which worked fine) and breakfast (which was an ok-ish spread with limited range/choices and quality).

The front desk check-in was helpful and very quick.

The room (though supposedly a non-smoking floor) smelled really bad, and nothing could be done about it. The size of the room was also pretty small, and it does not have an iron in the room (they did provide me an iron and board on request, though).

The area around the hotel is nothing special to walk around or visit, apart from a Pizza Hut closeby.
