“Decent basic hotel”
Reviewed April 22, 2014

The Ibis Sharq was a decent hotel for the price we payed. By Kuwaiti standards, the pricing seemed quite economical. The staff was friendly. Wi-if was free and good enough for surfing the web and checking email. The rooms are pretty small--my husband and I just fit with our two carry-on sized bags. The bed was comfortable enough. There was what I will call "all purpose" soap in the shower. I pack light when I travel and typically get by on the soaps and shampoo/conditioner provided by the hotels. Unfortunately this shower soap didn't do much to clean my hair, so I ended up buying the real stuff at a convenience store. Not a big deal, but something to note for future travelers. All-in-all, this hotel served its purpose for us, and if you need a place to rest your head at the end of the day, this place will do, and at a good price too.

Small room but absolutely perfect for one person. Clean and modern. Only minus is that room has a door (locked of course) to the room next to you which is sometimes noisy as you can hear the room next to you. Breakfast decent but repetitive if you stay longer.
Overall good!

Exactly as I expected it to be from a three star business orientated hotel. Functional but comfortable with friendly, helpful staff. Room is classic Ibis, not large and luxurious but at the price can't be beaten and better then the European equivalent. Wifi worked well (which is almost as important as the room itself these days). Good food to. I would stay with them again when in Kuwait.

Generally speaking, hotel rate in Kuwait is expensive. This hotel rate is not so much expensive.

We stayed at the Ibis Sharq for two nights, and I chose this hotel as the airline I work for has an agreement for discounted rates in accor hotels.

We arrived here at around midday, check in was very easy and extremely quick and the lady on reception gave me a voucher for a free soft drink as I am a silver member in the accorhotels loyalty club, which was appreciated.

The room itself was a standard Ibis room, the same the world over, however, the bed was different in that it had a feather mattress topper beneath the sheet, which led to an amazing nights sleep. The shower had excellent water pressure, and came with shower amenities, which was handy. Both the bedroom and the bathroom were spotlessly clean, and in a good state of repair.

Breakfast is served here for a long time, from 4am to 2pm (if I recall correctly), with varying costs, dependent on what type of breakfast you require. The breakfast room also changes to the lunch and dinner restaurant, which again, served good quality food, with good service from the waitress.

Location wise, if you fancy walking, the souk is about a 30 minute walk away, or a 5/10 minute taxi ride away.

I would definitely recommend this hotel in Kuwait.

I have been at the hotel twice and the rooms are decent for budget hotels. If you want to come back from meetings, office work and crash in a bed, the hotel serves the purpose. The internet facility is pretty good. The hotel doesn't have too many options for Indian food but you have good indian restros around with good Veg cuisine as well.
The breakfast at the hotel is pretty good and has good variety. The staff is really helpful and the pick-up and drop facilities to the airport ensures a good stay for you at the hotel.
