Stayed in this hotel for a business trip, and it was booked by the inviting part, a state budget organisation. They said it is better that something else they initially planned; in all the experience was pretty ok, considering the price range. It was also possible to check in early in the morning after a night flight, well before the...

While I cannot say I am an expert on the Almaty hotel scene, I think this seemed to be a decent option given what is available. I was part of an event that took place at the Intercontinental, which was extremely nice, but I understand quite pricey as well. There are a couple of other 5-star options, but being on...

The location is good; walking distance from a shopping area, nice public gardens near the hotel and also restaurants. However, the rooms are small (at least that is my experience) with small bathrooms and insufficient illumination. The views from the room are great ! if you get a room facing the mountains. The restaurant, I would recommend to avoid it....

I have stayed many times in this hotel on business as it is where my company choose to put me.

Yes there was a problem with hot water (although hot showers are available downstairs in the sauna) but the rooms are clean and adequate. The views from the balcony make up for a lot. I found the staff helpful and efficient but it probably helped having a Russian speaker with me. Would definitely stay again.
