The hotel itself is fine. It is 22 stories tall, but only 8 rooms to a floor - thus, a tall, thin hotel. It is 4 years old. It is in the Sharq district, only about 3 blocks from the Corniche - about halfway between Kuwait Towers and the Grand Mosque (and souks). The room was very large, although the shower was much smaller than other hotels in the Middle East. In that entire hotel, I was the only westerner (USA). Thus, you get the authentic feel of being in the Middle East. The breakfast was good, but not as big a variety as other hotels of this size. There is NO restaurant for lunch or dinner, but they have room service until 11:30 pm. We tried it twice and it was delicious and cheap. One block away (heading to the Corniche) there are several restaurants.
The only negative is that the doors (even though they are very thick) and the walls transmit sound easily. Thus, if there are kids yelling in the hallway (all these guests had several children) then you easily hear it. But, that doesn't last forever, so it is not a big issue.
Finally, I could not find a sign in English on the front of the hotel - only Arabic.More
