Good value for money...

Good (3.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on January 14, 2011

While not the best this luxury chain has to offer, the Kempinski Amman is great value for money. The rooms cost between $170 and $180 for doubles, including taxes, and may or may not include breakfast depending on the rate. The hotel comes with a lot of the luxury amenities of a five star hotel, but feels a lot less 'wonderful' than other Kempinski Hotels I've stayed at (e.g. in Istanbul and Dubai). I suppose the price per room is commensurate with the service, so I would stay here again mainly because of the value for money, but not because I am in love with the hotel. At the end of my tour of Jordan in Dec 2010/Jan 2011, I returned to the Kempinski for two more nights on a 'Weekend Rate' obtained online. It included breakfast and a late checkout of 5pm, which was a great convenience for an evening flight out of Amman. I must say that this was a very nice touch.

A nice hotel, yet services need to be improved !

Terrible (1.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on March 30, 2010

This is a nice and beautiful hotel located in a very quiet area in Amman. It is close to several shops, restaurants, cafes and other utilities.

* A few staff seem to be in need for more training on dealing with residents. I was in the executive floor and each time I use the Executive Lounge the staff would ask me if I am allowed to have access to the Lounge or not even though my agreement with the hotel was that I do have access to the Exe. Lng. as long as I am staying in the Exe. Flr. I had no other choice but to reminde the staff there of my reservation details !

* When I wanted to pay 3 nights in advance to get rid of some cash with me I was surprised that the receptionist doesn't know that I am entitled for free room internet access which has already been agreed with the hotel ! Again, I had to reminde him of my reservation details !

* An important message was left to me with one of the receptionists, but that was never delivered to me.

People are friendly and Amman is a nice city which you will enjoy.


Unique Quality: The restaurant are well equipped and well located.

The view is not that much, the hotel is surrounded be residential areas, yet it is very quiet and nice.

Kempinski Dead Sea Resort

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on March 16, 2009

This superlarge resort was beautiful and an exellent choice if you are planning to visit the Dead Sea.

I stayed there (7- 9 March 2009) and I absolutly loved it! I highly recommend it!

Besides the wonderful Dead Sea you have 9 different swimmingpools (each with at least one lifeguard on duty). The staff is superfriendly and helpful with a smile on their faces.

The breakfast buffet was exellent : lots of fresh fruit and juices, traditional arabic food, live-cooking, pancakes/waffles, ham/cheese, cereals, lots of diffrent tea etc. Delicious!

The dinnerbuffet was also very very nice and I can also recommend trying the Gorgonzola italian-style pizza in the Mediterrainan restaurant beside one of the pools. Excellent food and service!

They have a SPA, one of the biggest ones in the Middle East. I didn't go though because the prices where very high. And you can have your own spa right next to the Dead Sea. Just spoil yourself with the endless mud and enjoy! Your skin will turn supersmooth!

The rooms were excellent, very big with many funny designs. The entire hotel is a mecka for architectures, it is wonderful.

One of the best facilities is the complimentary mini-bar (lots of soda, water, beer and snacks) which gets refilled everyday. Or you can just ask for some extra when the refillcart is nearby and they will tell you with a smile on their faces to take all you need.

Good Service, Rooms just OK

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on February 26, 2009

The Kempinski Hotel in Amman has average rooms, a bit on the small side, but the service is good, not the very best but good. The Hotel only has 1 breakfast options, and very expenisive option. 16 JOD for Breakfast that's about $22 US......the surrounding neighborhood is full of banks, but was able to find a bakery near...overall a good stay...borderline if I would stay there again. We paid 104 JOD for a room with 2 single beds....I found this rate on there web-site.
