I picked Best Western Salmiya because I had to stay in the area to be close to my work meetings. The building itself is an 80s or late 70s establishment poorly maintained across a terrible mall, Al Salam with nothing to buy or see.
I did get a free upgrade to a suite at checking in however the room amenities were terrible as well as the street noise as it seems it is on a particular Streer where bikers race at late night using their full exhaust too! On top of that, on the second night of my stay, the lady guest from the adjacent room started screaming at 2am out of nowhere so I had to call the reception and a security to tell her off!
Besides the terrible sleep experience, the WiFi worked surprisingly since there are very few places in the city that offer WiFi!
The only plus of this hotel is that there’s a Starbucks next to the lobby, that’s it. less
