Reviewed yesterday NEW

A decent hotel located centrally in Kuwait City. Touches nicely all the key points for a short business stay - decent breakfast, courteous, supportive and promptly responsive staff and neat/clean, decently equipped rooms.

This review is for the Home Catering services from the Holiday Hotel. Their food is of a high standard, very generous and reasonable as well. We ordered mixed Kebabs, Biryani, grape leaves, and chicken fried noodles. They arrived on time and did a great job with the setup. Thank you for the excellent service.

I was very pleased to find that this hotel was much more of a four star offering and substantially exceeded expectations. Dining is excellent with wonderful buffets at breakfast,...

I Enjoy great service in the vibrant heart of Kuwait city center at the sleek Holiday-Downtown hotel.A towering high-rise in Kuwait's thriving business district, Holiday Downtown is easily reached via our complimentary shuttle from Kuwait International Airport, 18km away. Our Fitness Inn Center and pool afford sweeping views across the Arabian Gulf and Kuwait City. Tantalize your taste buds with our restaurants (Downtown International cuisine,Enjoy,The Square Cafe & Restaurant and ) .Choose a stylish Executive room or Suite at Holiday-Downtown to enjoy access to our exclusive Executive Lounge. We offer function space for up to 400 people in our 3 elegant ballrooms and 7 high-tech meeting rooms and there's plenty of complimentary parking for your guests. It's just a short stroll from the hotel to meetings at government offices and leading city center businesses.Head to the enormous Sharq Mall next to the hotel for some serious retail therapy and the biggest in-mall food court in Kuwait. There's even a huge artificial lake behind the mall, where you can hire jet skis and small motor boats.Plan your day with complimentary wireless Internet in Holiday-Downtown's chic marble Lobby, also home to a boutique gift shop and cafe.
