The hotel is decent and clean with very friendly staff. The beds are a bit hard though. Although Salmiya is not downtown Kuwait but it is still a convenient place with plenty of places to eat (local restaurants and fast food). Across from the hotel, there are 3 small size malls or galleries (Laila, Al bustan, and Al fanar) where you can find more places to shop and eat. A large mall (Marina Mall) is less than 5 min drive, this means you are very close to the marina where they have more restaurants. Next to the hotel is a grocery store (Sultan) that has everything you need.
What I liked mostly about the hotel is the fact that they have a National rental car on the first floor, which offers chauffering service to take you anywhere if you don't want to haggle with local taxis. They can drop you off and pick you up. I found it very convenient, although it does add up when you start using this service. To give you an idea on the pricing for this service (2 KD to go to marina mall, 3 KD to souk al safat or souk moubarkia, 5 KD to the Avenues mall) - each way.More
