One of my favourite hotels in the Dead Sea area. Staff can be more friendly I think! The service was overall very good. The food is also good but it would have been better. One of my favourite hotels in the Dead Sea area. Staff can be more friendly I think! read hotel review

To 2 time at the kempinski at the dead sea. The hotel is one of my favorites and this time was the stay complete success. The atmosphere of the hotel, the extensive grounds, the perfect room service, everything was a delight. But-the hotel is in the years, broken tiles and slabs bear witness, elevators with strange metallic knackgeräuschen are not necessarily vertrauenerweckend. read hotel review
