Nothing special about the property at all. Especially, considering the fact this is Kempinski hotel brand, i would not recommend staying here. Hotel itself is dates a bit, our check in was questionable because we had extra person in the room that they charged for even tho we did not use extra bed for it. We picked deluxe room because of the balcony & they did not really have any other room, including suits, that have the same view. So once we went over all the options they had for 3 people without proper solution, front desk asked us to pay extra for 3rd person for the duration of the stay (making room more expensive than a suit). Check in made me at the minimum uncomfortable & angry, especially considering the fact we were on the planes for 24 hours. This hotel would be ok for 3 star hotel so if you are prepare yourself for 3 star experience, you will be just fine. This was definitely far from 5 star hotel stay, unfortunately.

Great stay at Kempenski hotel. Our main reason for choosing this hotel was the roof top pool; which was great but it’s very small. Only 8 long chairs and about 20 sitting chairs. Luckily there weren’t too many people when we went, food at the rooftop was very good and we also ate at Restaurant Blue, which was very good well. We got a massage, which was great. I do wish I was told about the spa area beforehand so that I could have used it before my massage. Excellent service from all the staff.
