“Never again!!!”
Reviewed August 10, 2007

Where to start? How about no internet. I travel on business and it's important to keep in touch. The internet did not work, and there were no qualified people on site to tell me why it wouldn't. Next- I had a pool view room- sort of. The pool is covered with a giant tan screen. I assumed at first it was to shade the pool area, but on closer inspection, it is there to catch bird poop. It doesn't do a great job, there is still a bunch of it in and around the filthy pool. The backside of the hotel is built up against a ghetto, complete with a large pigeon coop and chickens. I assume it's chickens, because the rooster woke me promptly at 5 a.m. and wouldn't let up until the sun was up. The bath towels were worn threadbare. The mini bar fridge was warm and defrosted when I arrived. The porter that checked it out assured me that it was an electrical problem, and "not to touch the plug". Hmmmm. All I can say is that I spent one night and beat feet to the Crowne Plaza, which is the best that Kuwait City has to offer.

I stayed at Le Meridien Kuwait recently. The hotel is very small (under 80 rooms), but the hotel is excellent. The lobby is comfortable, the front desk staff are welcoming and smiling, and the rooms, though slightly small, are clean and well designed. There appears to be a renovation program going on, and staff at the hotel told me it should be finished soon. The restaurants are excellent; I am an avid seafood fan, and the Al Marsa restaurant (decorated in a traditional Kuwaiti tent style) is romantic and serves delicious seafood. The health club is small but well equipped, and the pool is well sized for a hotel like this. Hotel staff also mentioned that the hotel will soon start construction on a new tower extension with more than 100 additional rooms on an adjacent plot of land; that should boost services when it is finished. All in all, a great hotel for visiting guests!
