Lonely Planet review
Well-heeled Arabian businessmen, Western military officers and soldiers, folks from various intelligence agencies and African bigwigs – they all end up here. It’s all very ‘Bond, James Bond’. Away from 007 fantasies, you know exactly what you’ll be getting at the swanky Kempinski: impersonal yet shiny-clean rooms and a host of top-notch facilities, including three restaurants, two swimming pools, a business centre, a dive shop, a spa and a gym. What you won’t be getting is any kind of indication that you are in Djibouti but, as you flake out on the (tiny) beach or do laps in the gleaming pool, you probably won’t be that bothered. Many guests have found the service a bit lackadaisical.
Our independent authors have visited Djibouti Palace Kempinski and selected this as one of our recommended hotels in Djibouti City.
