No parking for the hotel, small room sizes, they claimed the upgrade my room but still I get same room that I paid for. The positive thing about the hotel is the location and the flexibility of the check out time
Location was ver convenient and rooms were clean and comfortable. Good value for the price. Will stay there again in future.
My wife is on contract in kuwait and i am on contract in abu dhabi. i chose ibis salmiya for its price and location but now chose it because i prefer staying here. i can depend on complete quiet, privacy, superior quality service and wonderful location for a traveller who is on foot. 24 hour western-type grocery next door, department stores, small boutique malls and multiple coffee shops, starbucks, mcdonalds, burger king, kfc, great shwarma and fresh juice, movie. its just a relaxing, superior service operation that provides me with just what i need at a reasonable price. i am a budget traveller but feel like i am a million-dollar guest here every time. I have stayed here (in a room now) 5 times in three months and i wouldnt go anywhere else.
- Great location - Not enogh areas for business/ dining meeting - Smoking in the restaurant area is very bad - Smoking area next to the receiption area. - Not enough car parking area for short term parking/ drop-off area. - Access with bags is a problem: not an easy ramp.
The hotel was okay. As is the case with many things in Kuwait, it says free on the internet and on travel websites, but the airport shuttle is NOT FREE. The front desk even went so far as to "book" me on the shuttle for the following morning, and when i came down to check out, they just called a taxi. Which is total BS - the taxi to the airport was 5 KD - almost $20.... And I wouldnt be surprised if it was one of their friends who ended u driving me, because i did not see any licensing within the "taxi". Next time I'll stay at the holiday Inn.
I was on a business trip. No room service, no coffee in room. The breakfast is average
- Free WiFi and wired Internet in rooms and public areas
- Onsite dining
