Stay here often plus minus once every six weeks for a week or so. Great hotel for Djibouti, best place (only place?) to stay if in Djibouti. Water pressure in rooms sometimes a problem, but better last few times. Musty (sewerage) smell in some rooms that can be really off-putting, but management is aware of it and working on it....

This is one of the best palace in Djibouti. It's very expensive. Pool with a nice beach view. It's too huge you can spent your whole day here. Food: They don't have much option in vegetarian. Breakfast buffet was good. This palace is to big we couldn't find the rooms but staff came in midnight to help us. Suggestion: please...

The hotel is about a 20 minutes drive from the airport. You might feel like you have stepped into a different era when you get here! Great hotel, excellent rooms, a real luxurious feel. Impressive lobby with African artefacts on display. Hotel was very quiet and rooms were clean. I was in the new wing, so that was a plus....

Very spacious and bright room. Bed really comfortable, especially the pillows. Sheets washed and ironed with neatness. Highlight the pool bar that allows you to enjoy any drink while you relax in the sun. Good personal attention.

I was in Djibouti for 2 days recently & stayed overnight at The Djibouti Kempinski Palace hotel & it lived up to its name. Palatial. I could not fault its accommodation, food or ambience. It was such a surprise to a place like this in that part of the world.

I have been to the Kempinski a couple of times now. It's a very nice property with nice buildings and art. The whole place is relaxing but the food is insanely expensive. The quality is average but the prices are out of the roof! $30 for a hamburger?! $17 for a vegetarian wrap. This is absurd. The lunch buffet is...

Nice hotel with free breakfast buffet that has lot of options. Ambience is based on old African Arabic culture. Well maintained rooms with view to the sea. Water tank needs to be cleaned since the water had some smell.
