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

Good hotel for a cure stay in the dead sea

  • October 2012
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. read hotel review

    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
