Where to stay in Kuwait City

Few look much further than the peninsula of Kuwait City when looking for accommodations. And with good reason too, with plenty of attractions by the waterfront and a wide range of accommodations located here, including skyscraper hotels, standard chains, basic guesthouses, and charming boutiques. But looking further back from the water can bring up some hidden treasures, with the older (or, at least, less recently renovated) districts still possessing a certain storied charm with their aged look and more traditional markets. You'll find hostels, guesthouses, and a few luxury options to boot.

  • The sea facing museum of kuwait historical events shows and bring a fresh feeling of humanitarian evolution of arabic culture in kuwait.
  • Very nice place we like it and so many things we can saw there
  • On the day of writing the review did not like that the building around the museum. Inside there are exhibits worthy of attention. But many places are not available for viewing.
  • There were constructions but we managed to visit part of it. We enjoyed that part and never regret it
  • Informative place. Needs upgrade
