A good hotel option for business travelers. The hotel is clean and rooms are big. With prior information, pickup and drop from the airport can be arranged. Close to souq sharq. The room rent is little higher side as compared to other near by hotels.

I stayed here for 2 days on a short business trip. Although I spent limited time within the hotel due to a hectic schedule, the stay was comfortable and then staff were welcoming. I was provided a pickup as well as drop to the airport which made life easier. Would stay here the next time I travel to Kuwait.

I consider HI hotels to be three star and economical. Not in Kuwait. More like £150-200 a night for what is really only 3 star ... In food, service and rooms. Down the road Ibis is half the price and the rooms are much the same. They are both safe and clean
