I used to stay in this hotel every time I visit Kuwait. The location is so nice, walking distance to shopping malls, supermarkets, very close to the Gulf Road (Cornish) and some nice restaurants. The hotel has all what you expect from 4 start hotel, stylish and very clean. The staff are friendly most of the time. The breakfast contains verity of food for a very reasonable price. What I did not like is that it has no free car parking where you will have to struggle with finding a parking close enough to the hotel especially at late night. Minor maintenance is required for the bathrooms in some of the rooms. Rooms are relatively small but that is expected for economy hotel like Ibis.

Room Tip: Make sure you inform the hotel about your preference of smoking or non-smoking rooms prior to arriva...

The hotel was nice and clean, but I was traveling with a large group and I hoped to get a special promotion for that. The rooms were clean and the hotel was quite. The breakfast was great and all of the group liked it. I had two issues during my stay, the first was that not all the rooms were ready when I arrived. And the second was the parking, there were not enough parking spots for the hotel.

Stayed 4 nights on a trip during Jul/Aug. For the price, this budget hotel is excellent value in Kuwait with all the amenities a business traveler would expect. Located right in the middle of shopping street and the staff is very courteous. Rooms are pretty small though, but enough for a single guest. Excellent house keeping.

Room Tip: Get a room with sea view

Stayed here for 11 night on a business trip in August.
Hotel ideally placed for the shopping malls and marina.
Room was spotlessly clean and very quiet, had great views over the bay and over towards Kuwait city and the towers. Had a couple of evening meals here and they were average but hot and tasty. Breakfast pretty standard but always fresh and fully stocked, with lots of optins to choose from.
Stayed during Ramadam, difficult as no shops or restaurants open during the day, but open until 2am!!
Recommend staying here to anyone who knows that they are getting a standard room with good access to most areas of Kuwait City.
