“Cost Effective Oasis”
Reviewed 12 January 2012

I've spent a lot of time at the Ibis Salmiya over the past few years, coming and going from Iraq. The hotel is located near a great grocery supermarket and a few blocks away from one of the better malls. The Ibis Salmiya is also one of the most cost effective hotels in Kuwait City. Many of the local hotels are over priced, in my experience, and the low end hotels/pensions are mostly occupied by immigrant workers. The high end hotels are splendid, but are costly. The Ibis is reasonably priced and clean. There is a buffet breakfast at a reasonable fee. There is wireless internet in the rooms. There is underground parking, and the staff are very polite and helpful. The Ibis is also a short walk to the Hard Rock Cafe, which is on Kuwait Bay. There is also a Pizza Hut and a Burger King within walking distance... though there are much better local foods available nearby.

Room Tip: The rooms have cable TV with CNN and BBC World. The Business Center, is just three PC's located...

The location was a bit off. We had difficulty locating the place, even when asking for directions. Parking was also an issue.
Service on the other hand was excellent. So was the price.

This hotel has a great location and large, clean rooms, and it's very reasonable as well. It's one of the cheaper places to stay in the city, so my expectations weren't high but I was impressed. The bedding was lovely and my room looked out over the city.

The best thing about this hotel is its location. It is surrounded by shopping malls and restaurants. It is also located right in front of the sea/beach.
As for the sleep quality it is nice and quiet, although the mattresses can be much better than what they currently are.
