Excellent hotel staff and outstanding food. We were upgraded from a Junior suite and our executive suite was as big as an apartment 😁 I must say the manager and the entire staff went out of the way to make us feel comfortable. It was a great experience and I will definitely go back again to stay In Kempinski

OK
It was fine but for the price, left a lot to be desired. Service was very slow and lacked attention to detail, rooms needed an update.
