Recent guest reviews

we were for one night in Ibis Salmiya hotel and it felt like home!! The room was very clean with amazing view and central location. The personal was very polite , helpful and friendly!!! Especially Louis, Deepak and Saweh!! We would DEFINITELY recommend it!! Not to forget that the bar has an musing view to the Kuwait City and dishes are delicious!!

I have been staying at IBIS Salmiya for the 3rd time in the last 12 months and for the 3rd time my expectatins were met: excellent hotel, very good location, really good and helpful people (reception, bar, restaurant). Special thanks to Mr Luis at reception, really professional. I suggest this hotel and will stay again for sure, any time need to be in Kuwait. Enzo (March 2018)

I stay often at the IBIS Salmiya where they have truly excellent service starting at the front desk and continuing to their dining room. A delicious breakfast is served under the guidance of F&B Manager Maher (Jordanian), and Chef Mahmoud (Egyptian). All staff are smiling and helpful. They make their guests feel welcome. The hotel parking is difficult. The owner should make an agreement with the building's underground parking concessionaire for a reduced rate for hotel guests. There is almost no parking available by the hotel on the street and underground parking is expensive ($19 per night). The hotel owner should solve the underground parking problem then IBIS would be be the best business hotel in Kuwait. Hotel location is good, near restaurants, shopping and 5th ring road. I always enjoy staying at IBIS except for the parking.

I have stayed in many hotels in Kuwait, many 5 stars. I have been staying in Ibis Salmiya now for several years. I am a super regular customer and the reasons are: 1. Impeccable service, from top mangers down to the waiters, they care about every aspect of the client needs, extremely detailed oriented. Any issue you raise they take care of it minutes. The location is superb, I love the idea that I can walk to many restaurants and cafes and supermarket, that is UNIQUE among all hotels in Kuwait. The food and café are very good, they breakfast opens at 4:00 am so for people that wake up early, this is great. They have a fantastic outdoor, indoor café, so if you like to smoke like I do, this is ideal. The value is value considering that hotels in Kuwait are not cheap at all. Above all in my mind is the service, not only best in Kuwait but best among many hotels worldwide, and believe me I stay in many hotels since I am always traveling,

Room is small as expected. The bed was painful to sleep on for 5 days. Forget eating breakfast there. Good location for other restaurants. Access is good if you are just discharged from the hospital. Parking is a nightmare and find a spot in the back side lot;

Very nice staying in Ibis Salmiya. Perfect for business and tourism. Mr Rifad Ramjan is the manager and keep always under control customer satisfaction and fix all request. Very clean place and professional people working very good. International breakfast and nice wiew from terrace. I’ll be back again surely. Good job, well done! best regards

We enjoy sleeping. The Breakfast was good and hotel surrounded by different restaurants. Sultan supermarket next block. By crossing the road you can found small shopping center. Marina Mall the mall with cenima

Great location , everything else is just normal , and completely self service Terrace needs more attention , staff on terrace are very rude and unhelpful. No service whatsoever, doesn't feel like a hotel at all. Bedding is extremely cheap , may cause a rash.

We would like to thanks for the great hospitality and service we experienced.... everything was excellent upon checking in and out. Thanks to the receptionist who assisted to us. We wish to come back here again soon....

Every time we need to ne in Kuwait we choose this location. It is perfect in a quiet area but at the same time there is a lot around where you can snack on or such. The staff is super welcoming... they do amything to accommodate the needs of the customers and they are always busy. The restaurant inside has good food and service is quick. Nice addition is the small Starbucks on the reception floor. We will return again!
