How to Answer
There is no right, or wrong, reply to this question. The interviewer wants to get to know you, and what your expectations may be when it comes to a luxury experience. When a question is open-ended like this, it is easy to ramble on, so be sure to stick to a few key points. For instance, discuss where in the world you would go, where you would stay, and how you would be treated. Perhaps you can mention which amenities would be available to you, on this ideal luxury holiday.

How to Answer
Most upscale hotels will prefer to see education within hospitality, travel and tourism, business administration, or something of the like. Walk the interviewer through your post-secondary education, discussing any specific coursework that may relate to this role. If you do not have formal education, you can refer to on-the-job training that you have received, or even skills that you have acquired along the way, which would help you succeed in this role with Kempinski Hotels S.A..

How to Answer
With high-end, luxury accommodations usually come guests who are very particular about their experience. Are you able to brush it off when a guest is extra fastidious, or do you take the event personally? Assure the interviewer that you can keep professional composure when it comes to fussy customers.

Question 4 of 30
How would you respond if a customer left a negative review of yourself or Kempinski Hotels online?
Click To View Answers
How to Answer
In our digital age, with so much riding on our online reviews, it's imperative that negative reviews see a swift and adequate response. Some businesses will hire experts to handle their online reputation. These online reputation management services are precious to companies, such as hotels and resorts, where many potential customers first go online to read reviews before making a reservation.

If this situation has happened to you before, you could give an example; however, be careful not to draw too much attention to the negatives and focus primarily on the positive outcome.

Experts suggest the following when dealing with negative online reviews:

- Respond quickly to any reviews that are reasonable or understandable
- Do not become defensive
- Give a brief public response then offer a more personal private response if possible
- Address the most important parts of the feedback
- Reinforce the fact that you care about your quality and customer experience

Question 5 of 30
What does the word 'hospitality' mean to you?

How to Answer
Hospitality is referring to the exchange between a customer and someone in the service industry. The interviewer understands what hospitality means, and now they want to see that you know the nuances behind providing excellent levels of hospitality to the esteemed guests of Kempinski Hotels S.A..

Question 6 of 30
Tell me about the worst guest you have ever dealt with, and how you persevered through the situation.
Click To View Answers
How to Answer
Guests will complain, be nit-picky, snarky, and at times - downright rude. Situations like this are par for the course in the service industry. Luckily, these experiences are not the norm, and you get to choose how you react. Show the interviewer that you are not one to take it personally if a guest is acting out. Discuss a time when you have been in an awkward situation, and how you came out of it unscathed.
