Missoni Hotel: Kuwait City's Trendiest
Opened in 2011, the Missoni Hotel is the designer's second ever after Edinburgh. Why Kuwait was chosen seems a bit odd, but maybe a business study led them to realise there was a serious lack of cool hotels in the city. This is the reason why the Missoni Hotel is so welcomed here. I stayed here for one night in Nov 2012 while in Kuwait on business and enjoyed my stay very much. It is located near Marina Mall, on the shores of the Gulf with stunning views of the water and the Kuwait skyline. As expected from Missoni, the interiors are very colourful and beautifully designed, and the hotel comes with the comforts of five star accommodations. This is probably the hotel I would stay at on future visits to Kuwait. The only disadvantage is that it is located about 20 minutes from the centre of the city, so business travels would just have to factor a little extra time on their way to meetings... hardly a high price to pay.
