Impressive, quality. Really enjoyed coming back to room everyday, rooms are large, comfortable, luxurious. Great breakfast, great restaurants, great pools, great evening entertainment. I simply enjoyed a beer by the pool/beach listening to the waves and tranquil DJ music. Expensive but the best you will find in the area.

The Kempinski is the best there is in Djibouti, which may not be saying a lot but it is a good hotel with international service standards. Rooms are typical of that class of hotel internationally and a sea view certainly preferable to those of the gardens / city. We attended their New Year's Eve dinner & dance and got quite... More

There is not much competition on the medium to high end for Djibouti so the Kapenski is about the best you can get. Its a nice respite from the poverty and filth around you but that's about it. The lobby and grounds are very nice. The staff is extremely nice although I didn't see that many employees were from Djibouti.... More

Overall this hotel is perfectly fine, and provides what you'd expect it to. However, given the high prices and the fact... More
