I was impressed with this hotel. Having not been there for over a decade, I spent some time researching where to stay in UB on Tripadvisor. I noted the generally negative opinions of the city's hotel options, and that the Kempinski is not on a par with hotels in other countries with the same name. That said, and it is true that this Kempinski is not of the 5-star calibre of others, it was certainly a pleasant surprise. It is perfectly comfortable with large rooms, that, with the windows closed, were very quiet. The bathroom was fine, with strong hot water available at all times that I was there. The restaurants were good. I ate well both at dinner and at breakfast. The staff in particular were particularly attentive and helpful. I was even given the use of a local mobile phone and number gratis for the duration of my stay, and offered the use of an iPad too. There was good access to free wifi on all floors.
It is a little off from the town centre, which means there is not much to see in the immediate neighbourhood and one would need transportation to get around town. I asked both a local colleague and the front desk if I could go for a stroll in the evening and both said it was unadvisable. Nonetheless I did go for a wander one evening (before dark, which is around 9pm in the summer), and there were plenty of people about and it all looked very safe. Although, to be honest, there wasn't anything to see really.
The gym is simple and the sauna small, but if one really needed to use either I am sure they would suffice.
