“Great service and great staff”
Reviewed 4 June 2013

The Safir International is a very comfortable hotel with great staff. Situated just of the Gulf Road and close to the Kuwait Towers, with great views of the sea and excellent views of the coast down to the Scientific Centre, some 12 Km away, from the breakfast room on the 19th floor.

This is an older hotel and the exterior of the building is not especially attractive, but it is well maintained and the staff is very helpful and friendly. Stayed on one of the upper executive floors so not sure about other locations, but these rooms are good size, quiet, comfortable and clean - although the decor is dull and dated. Typical hotel AC worked OK, but did smell musty at times. Large flat screen TV, although the selection of channels is very limited. WiFi is free, but connecting is quirky. There is a business center in the lobby with two computers and printers for use by guests.

The location is good and the views of the gulf are very nice, although you will need a car or taxi to get anywhere. There is a fair amount of reconstruction going on around the hotel but noise was not a problem.

The breakfast buffet is very good with a wide selection of fruits, salads, and hot breakfast options. The pool looked nice, but to get to it one has to walk through the main lobby. Never saw anyone using it. The fitness center was closed. There is a no-smoking policy in public areas, but this is widely disregarded by guests and ignored by staff.

All in all, an OK stay for the price.

Room Tip: Try to arrange a room on one of the upper level executive floors. Insist on non-smoking room if tha...

Good location (but need car) near Kuwait City and good value (less than half luxury hotel rates - try not to pay more than KWD 40pn incl. taxes). But a bit forlorn and tired. Staff do try their best though and are personally friendly. Bathrooms need updating.

The hotel attendants were so friendly. rooms are quit big, comfortable bids, hotel is in the middle of the sites that you would like to visit either if you are going for business or leisure

The only disadvantage is that I had one bag and no body offered to take it to the room!

The hotel had an oldish decor yet very well maintained .. The location is quite central from the airport , shopping malls as well as popular food joints .. The meals were overwhelming .. Though u really hope that they atleast have a change in their Fixed lunch & dinner menus considering we stayed there for 3 days.. A variety is welcome.. The desserts were better than most dessert & pastry outlets .. Very consistent !!! But most commendable was the staff and their friendly service .. REALLY quick & prompt with their service .. WI FI in the rooms were superb ! would love to experience another stay at Safir !! Highly recommend it !
