A question about Hotels in Kuwait

Question: Hi, I enjoyed reading your informative blog. I will be traveling to Kuwait for the EMAC volleyball tournament in October. Would you be able to give me information on hotels near the American International School of Kuwait? Thanks so much.

AIS is located in Salmiyah, so you would want a Hotel that is in Salmiyah or close by.

Here is the school map:

Here is a list of the hotels & furnished apartments in Salmiyah:

Hotel Ibis Kuwait Salmiya *** Prices are very reasonable $83 including taxes.

Taxis are the way to move around the city, ask about the fair prior to riding.
Check out my post about Taxis HERE.
Also if you have to apply for a Visa at the Kuwait airport use Hala Kuwait Services.
I have posted about that HERE

Good Luck.
