“Short Business Trip”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 28, 2013

Safe and excellent hotel in Central Amman. Staff extremely courteous and attentive except in the restaurant at breakfast. Just trying to get a coffee or refill within reaonable time is impossible, waiter perfect I'm busy and not looking your way!. Breakfast is a wide range and eggs can be cooked to order. Rooms very comfortable, clean and quality linen and bathroom towels. Conciege will organise anything you require although car taxis is curious as booking clerk in reception seems very put out by guest requests and then turns out to be your driver?
Been there many times and will return

Room Tip: Ask for a quiet room which are at the end of corridors. I have stayed several time and prefer this t...

But agree with all the other reviews, it's not on a par with all the other Kempinskis! Bedroom decor a bit outdated now - one of the bedside lights not working & no kettle (tea/coffee) in the room (this was on the Executive floor). Mistakenly left the 'do not disturb' button on one day & asked if it could be cleaned whilst we were out for an hour which it was. Breakfast a bit lame although evening drinks & canapes plentiful. Downstairs lobby & bar areas nice enough. Pool closed due to being winter. Would probably stay somewhere else next time.

It is a good hotel. Excellent location for business and for other purposes, hospitable reception staff, friendly atmosphere. Comfortable rooms with the needed amenities. Serves the purpose.
However breakfast not as expected and service there is lacking.
Jacuzzi was closed and no proper attendance at the spa.
Concierge gave wrong information and could not help with other.
All is fine; but for a Kempinski you would expect impeccable performance that justifies the rates.

It was my company’s decision to put me in the Kempinski Hotel. Have been in many Kempinski’s in the past and never disappointed.
The hotel has good standards (not quite as luxurious as other Kempinski), nice rooms (comfy beds), very friendly staff who are always helpful.
Good, busy location close to the city center and just 30 min away from the airport.
Stayed in one of the Executive Rooms so I had access to the Executive Lounge which could be improved in terms of size and offering - but it was quiet and there were good snacks available.
Breakfast in the main restaurant was of good quality and a good buffet in the evening.
Enjoyed my stay very much and would stay again.

Stayed at the Kempinski recently and can say that compared to its sister hotels in Jordan and in other places across the Middle East, this one is showing its age. The rooms are clean but the furniture and decor is becoming dated. When compared to somewhere like the Millenium around the corner, what is on offer at Kempinski is below what is available at other 5 star hotels in Amman. The executive lounge is just about OK with what could be described as average service. If you get a good deal then it's probably worth a punt otherwise look elsewhere.

The hotel is located in a busy traffic area, however many restaurants are within walkin distance.
The front desk staff are very polite and helpful. Rooms are quite old style and old furntiure. room was not clean at checkin.but was better on the next day.
The Breakfast was ok, however dinner was quite bad experience at the main restaurants.
In brief the hotel lacks the luxury and the quality of Kempenski hotels.

I had stayed at this hotel in September 2012 when I had been to Amman on a business trip. Located in a quiet neighborhood, it has a very good ambience. Looks and feels very secure inside. Extremely courteous and helpful staff who take care of all your needs. The rooms are quite spacious with all amenities. If you are a fitness freak then the gym, spa and the pool cane be real good indulgence

Room Tip: Ask for front facing or Poolside facing rooms
