Amman, the largest city in Jordan, has been its capital since 1921. Throughout history, it has gone by the name of Philadelphia and Rhabbat Ammon. Today, half of the country’s inhabitants live in this particularly warm city. Its center still contains structures that bear witness to its history, like the ancient Roman theatre, dating back to the 2nd century A.D., with its seating capacity of 6,000 and which is still used today. Facing the theatre, we find the ruins of the 1st century A.D. Citadel. H
owever, to truly understand the history of Amman and of all of Jordan, the Archaeological Museum is the place to go and discover the priceless treasures that recount Jordan’s past, like the Dead Sea Scrolls or the prehistoric remains. Mosques also play a vital role in the life of the city, like for example, the King Abdallah mosque or the Al Hussein mosque in front of which many faithful still pray.
Ideally located in the Shmeisani quarter, the city’s business area, the Kempinski Hotel Amman proposes an incredible number of rooms and original activities for a hotel of this standing.
The 278 rooms and suites are spacious and well equipped without being ostentatious. The décor is simple, but each room has a warm atmosphere thanks to the large beds covered with cushions, imposing wood cupboards, glass tables and very comfortable sofas and armchairs. The large windows allow the natural light to enter and offer guests a view of the bustling city.
There are several restaurants to choose from, depending on one’s mood at the moment. The Kempi has an international cuisine, blending European and Middle Eastern dishes. At the Via Appia, the Chef serves typically Italian dishes, using only the highest quality products and a wine list that will satisfy even the most demanding palates. Finally, the Café Lounge is ideal for reading over a cup of hot tea.
Relaxation is also the order of the day in the rest of the hotel, thanks to its superb pool around which guests can enjoy a cocktail on sunny days. The spa also has a space totally dedicated to wellness.
The Striker adds a touch of originality in the small elite category of five star hotels with an area completely devoted to fun for families and groups of friends with ping-pong tables, 8 bowling lanes and some pool tables as well.
