“Great Location”
Reviewed April 14, 2013

Price was about $80 U.S. for 2 nights. Room was small but for a 2 night stay before heading on elsewhere, it worked out well. International TV channels, room was clean, Wi-Fi was a bit slow, friendly service. All in all it was worth it. Location was within walking distance to cafe's and restaurants.

This was my first trip to Kuwait , it`s very dusty today . I reached 5:00 AM to the hotel , nice welcome . friendly staff , clean rooms . I had a problem in one of the lights , they did everything to fix it and they fixed it . This is the bext in Town for the money you pay and it`s always Ibis standard ! I will visit here again and again .

Room Tip: Choose on the 12th floor and above to have nice view of the city if not dusty !

Only one night here - no surprises good or bad, thats what you expect from the Ibis chain. Room was, as usual' functional and satisfactory. Wi-Fi was a little slow but not a show stopper. Position was outside the main city but good if you want to get to the industrial and free zones without the ever increasing traffic mayhem in Kuwait.
I am a non smoker and had room 1202 which was on the non smoking floor but there was a connecting door and the person in the next room was obviously trying to kipper himself. I had to wedge towels under the door to help stop the smell.
This being Kuwait you have to live with that stuff, so if you want a smoke free room ask for one without a connecting door.
Breakfast was good, view not bad.
All in all a good business hotel with a gym.

Dear Guest,

Thank you so much for the positive comment posted on Tripadvisor website.

It is very appreciated.

Sorry for the inconvience caused by the smoke coming from the next door.
It is regrettable that people decide to smoke in a non-smoking floor.

Thank you once again for your feedback.

We all look forward to welcome you again in near future.

The staff are just wonderfull eventhought they are always busy at the front disk. At all, its a great to come back to ibis Sharq.

Room Tip: If your are traveling with kids, always try to get the rooms at the corner of each floor, so you can...

This hotel is very clean. The lobby is very nice and the staff are very helpful.

On each floor there is a vending machine for water or soft drinks (Overpriced).

For a quick stay with safe, clean and reasonable price, this is the one.

There is no parking for this hotel except for a very small side walk next to it that holds 30 cars only so you might end up parking in the street if you come late at night.

Couple of shopping malls and restaurants are nearby.

I would defiantly will come back in god's well.
