I was here for a 2-night business trip. Booked into a 'Suite Superior King Bed' room. The room was much bigger than I needed with open plan sitting area and bedroom area. I would have liked an internal chain on the door. I think I would have felt more
comfortable in something that was a bit smaller. I guess it was the only size of room available when booked for my 2-night stay. The room was OK but a bit dated in style. The sofa was stained and grubby (it really does need cleaned), so I chose not to sit on it, preferring the dining chair which was cleaner. The sitting room area and the bedroom also have loose rugs over the tiled floor, which I really didn't like, I folded the bedroom one out of the way because I didn't want to walk on it (looked a bit dirty). The bed was comfortable and the bathroom was very good and clean. The room had no iron board or iron which was surprising.
The breakfast buffet was adequate and all that I required. All staff were polite and helpful.
The information folder in the room states that airport transport can be organised for a notional fee, this fee is exactly the same as that charged by airport taxis = 10 KD. However, a street taxi did offer the same service for 5 KD. I opted for the BW hotel organised taxi purely for the reassurance that there would be a car there in the early morning hours, whereas if I had a day time departure I would probably flag down or phone a street taxi.
The hotel is in a busy area so there is a bit of outside noise from traffic jams outside but that did not disturb my sleep. The hotel does not have an ATM but you can cross over the nearby roundabout to the closest shopping mall where there are several ATMs plus you will find the Lou Lou supermarket. The more luxurious Marina Mall is a few minutes walk away, walk through to the back of that mall in the early evening and you can take some lovely sunset photographs over the Marina and the Kuwait skyline. less
