My husband was here for two weeks for work, I joined him the second week. We both had issues with cigarette smoking on the non smoking floor. The first week my husband reported a room (and we have to know exactly room or the hotel won’t do anything) and they moved the guy to a smoking floor. The second week when I arrived there was a guy who kept smoking, they told him to stop he said he would but he didn’t, he also refused to move to a smoking floor, there is absolutely no penalties for smoking on a non smoking floor. The staff just says, “this is kuwait, that’s how it is”. The second thing that absolutely made my blood boil was the Egyptian guy at the front desk. My husband told them when he checked in that I would be joining him the second week. They stated it would not be a problem. However the guy insinuating that I was a prostitute. Even though I showed him 3 forms of Id all showing my last name matched my husband he wanted a freaking marriage certificate! Are you kidding me!?! He only asked me based off my race. This was the most demeaning thing that has every happened to me. I lost my cool and yelled at him told him I wanted a manager, I also told him he can call the embassy and verify it. I guess he didn’t expect me to go postal on him, he made a copy of my passport and handed me a key. I WILL NEVER STAY HERE AGAIN! I have also shared this experience with several of my friends and they will be staying elsewhere. This behavior is completely unacceptable!!

I stayed for one night. It is very convenient for business travellers.Excellent location surrounded with many outlets and shops. I got nice room with gulf view. Room is clean and good. Breakfast buffet is nice. Internet is good and free. Team is friendly. Please note that reception is in 3rd floor :-)

My stay was perfect, fast check in tasty food and a unique housekeeping staff , breakfast buffet is limited but tasty and a manager will receive you in restaurant , well decorated and arranged and can smoke shisha with a cheap price . Thank you

During my business stay 12th to 17th September RN-826 I must say the hotel is centrally located,has a nice view of the marina, comfortable n very clean rooms, excellent staff everywhere. Breakfast n food too were perfect and very good. perfect to stay on a business trip.

I stayed in ibis hotel salmiya several times. very neat and clean hotel with professionals housekeeping, several shopping malls and cornice around. Have alghanim and lot of other shops, KFC, inside hotel starbucks .. thankyou ibis team.

The service was really great and the personell competent and friendly. The room was nice and clean and had everything I needed. Nice launch area in front of the front office and good location in the city with restaurants and supermarket really close by. I was surprised about the pricing which was really high compared to German standards, but it seems to be normal for Kuwait standards. I would rebook this hotel any time.

The location is very good. Many restaurants around, Marina mall is also nearby. However, the hotel itself does not give your a reason to come back. The entrance of the hotel is so narrow, the rooms are really tiny. Not recommended for families.
