“Good Hotel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 26, 2013

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 Bedroom decor a bit outdated now - one of the bedside lights not working & no kettle (tea/coffee) in the room (this was on the Executive floor).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

I had a suite in the executive floor.
Since the check-in till room services, everything was perfect.
The bathroom amenities are perfect and every night the housekeeping knock the door to ask if you need more amenities or towels.
For executive rooms they give special services like free drinks in the mini bar, coffee machine and a special tea room in the 7th floor with mini snacks and deserts all day.
Breakfast is fabulous with many chefs availables to prepare sandwiches, omeletes and special dishes.
Location is very nice with lots of restaurants and pubs around the corner.
I'm very happy with the experience and for sure I'll be back.
