Plaza Athenee Hotel
Ranked #62 of 69 Hotels in Kuwait City
Reviewed 25 May 2014

The hotel is for those looking to stay for a couple of hours. Very basic and the property is really old and could do with a bit of refurbishment. The location is good and overlooking the corniche making it possibly the cheapest room with a corniche view. All the rooms in very floor face the elevator !!!

The food is not recommended although I did like the Turkish coffee they served at the cafe in the lobby. Staff are helpful but sometimes it is difficult to make them understand what you really need. I had a hard time trying to get a laundry bag!!

Room Tip: Upgrade to the junior suite if possible

Stayed at the hotel for two nights.

Rather basic business hotel - comfortable rooms and clean reception area.

Reasonable quality breakfast.

If you do not want to have a fancy hotel for your business stay but just a place which works this could be your alternative.

I stayed there last week while in Kuwait and have to say its a beautiful well managed hotel, with lovley helpful staff. I got this hotl at the airport where their colleague ibrahim, just called them and they came within 15 minutes to pick me up, free of charge. The Staff at the desk Ahmed and Wa,ill were so brilliant.I shall retun again in the future.

A one night hotel stay courtesy of Kuwait Airways. Front desk were very friendly and cheerful but disorganised and shambolic.Their comprehension of English wasn't that good, the desk was so strewn with passports and papers it was no surprise it took 15 minutes to locate my visa. Instructions as to our pick up time were confused, incorrect and contradictory. A wonder I didn't miss the plane. My room was quite small, small double bed, small shower. There was a leak in the bathroom so water on the floor at all times. Smoking is allowed in the rooms and, even worse, in the restaurant. The hotel seemed quite quiet until noisy guests departed at 3.30am and then at 4am someone from room service rang my door very loudly in an attempt to deliver something I had not ordered. The breakfast buffet wasn't good: the only bread was so stale it had to be toasted, coffee was Nescafe only, the cereals were all the cheap sugar encrusted variety, not much fruit. And smokers smoking over a 6.30am breakfast .Yuk! You could do worse for a one night transit but for a stay in Kuwait look elsewhere.

I stayed in this Hotel one week.
Several times the room was not cleaned.
But the worst thing was that the reception take the double amount from my credit card. The staff was not able to use the machine to cancel this operation. After a very long discussion receptionist go to exchange shop and give me the money in cash. One point for the Airport Pickup, this worked good.
Not recommendable!

What stands out at Plaza Athenee is the service, everyone is always absolutely happy to help starting from the bell boys to the receptionist who is always smiling and welcoming and finally the hotel manager. All are attentive to details and guests requests you can notice that by watching guests interact with them as well. hotel in terms of service and rooms is basic, Free WIFI is offered a room service menu till 23.00 i believe is available, i personally did not enjoy any type of coffee i ordered at the room service; request for a higher category not the standard room; this is a very small room and ac is noisy other rooms are fine. location is good enough to get around around 15 mins to the marina area and marina mall

I have stayed at the Plaza Athenee a couple of times while on business trips. The rooms are reasonably spacious, neat and the service is quite good. They arrange to pick you up from the airport if required. The rates are quite reasonable for a place like Kuwait. The breakfast is average - nothing to rave about.
