Stayed during a business trip to Almaty. Staff were friendly and hotel well appointed. Lack of English TV was a little disappointing but not something that would stop me staying again. Plenty of great restaurants within walking distance. Well worth checking out if visiting Almaty.

It exceeded all expectations. What struck us first was the beauty of the building with details like the piano in the lobby. An elegant hotel, evocative of...

Breakfast runs from six am till eleven, and it is a very good spread of both hot and cold. The rooms are quiet,...

I could not imagine how this hotel may be rated "poor" or "terrible". Even "average" is not acceptable for me. Everything in the Grand Tien-Shan is perfect: location (in the central part of the city in front of big nice park), lobby (large, comfortable and bright), rooms (clean, pleasantly decorated with comfortable bed) bathroom (clean with plenty of toiletries plus...
