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. Bewertung lesen

A week seaside holiday on the dead sea, with daily salt water pool and naturschlammpackung in healthy air. For this is this hotel excellent. Who general seaside holiday at the beach or only with a pool want to do, don't come here. The gastronomy offers is not quite worthy of 5 stars. A insect spray with you, you never can undisturbed sit outside or by the pool or at the sea beach chairs, because of the large plague of flies in the dead sea. Very unpleasant. Very good for a short stay. Bewertung lesen

    Here is probably only someone have a vacation, the targeted to the dead sea. This is exactly in front of the house. The possibilities for outings are very far away (Petra 3 hours with the taxi), but you should probably better with a jordanienrundreise merge The only thing that bothered us, was the somewhat laborious access to the dead sea. Here one could with stairs and structural measures reach very much. One had to walk over stones, for people, which is not so good on foot were, a bit cumbersome

A very nice quiet hotel complex, which directly at the dead sea is. There are many pool areas and in the low season there are not a problem by the pool or beach to find a free sun lounger. To the hotel complex the Mövenpick Hotel and the Marriot and nothing. Here you can really only relaxation. Amman is approximately 30 minutes on foot and there are only the shops in the hotel complex. The rooms the Ishtar village are very clean and spacious. We had a view of the pool. She were every day cleaned. Are safe the cleaning ... crew not as experienced as other Kempinski hotels, but you are very willing to make an effort and if something is missing, you later you ask for when the poison round in the evening. In the pool areas it is important, which pool you shall, for example the infinity pool is very clean and a great view the dead sea. With the other pool areas, as well as the shallow pool can it already once to a rough pollution come, as not all hotel guests correct behavior and the waiters with the dirt plate not afterwards came. The Obelisk restaurant was very clean, even if you the serving staff now and then a small nod to, so that everything runs smoothly. The staff needs help with the Routineabläufen and under constant Surveillance, so that it runs, but they make a lot of incredible friendliness and willingness to help way. The food was fresh every day and the chefs provide explanations for from. The selection is huge and varied every day. Unfortunately is the selection of warm dishes for vegetarians limited (here there is potential of improvement). In the full picture the hotel is on the good way the Kempinski standard to be, it needs only a couple more improvement in the serving staff. But there are already in service and cook area very nice German locally the problem fix it. We went to the Mövenpick looked at, but this hotel was too confusing and too loud, since late into the night a entertainment program, and we were the peace and quiet kempinski enjoyed have-) Bewertung lesen
