Our family of 3 couples stayed for one evening. I found the place enchanted, nice, secluded and attentive staff. Best feature is that it is secluded from civilization. Place to relax, enjoy your company and explore nature. We encountered some difficulties but were taken care of by Johnny and his staff in a prompt manner. The town roads leading to... More

Altai Oasis is a beautiful place, and perfect for backpackers. The food was very good as well as the sleeping facilities. The people who worked there was also very helpful, and the service was perfect. Sorata was also a very nice place, and all the people there was welcoming and kind. If I will be back in Sorata, I will... More

A real oasis garden! Very nice place to stay. A Hippie's dream the owner calls it. You get home made jam and the milk is from their own cow. Eat t-bone steak after downhill biking!! makes me want to open my own B&B.

We never actually got the chance to stay here because our reservation was not honoured even though it was confirmed. Upon arrival the women who greeted us were immediately very rude and yelled at us about not having space and not having services available and how it was not their fault that they did not have vacancy. I showed her... More

We chose Altai Oasis on the recommendation of friends - Sorata doesn't have the best accommodation anyway so this place was adequate. Quite a hike from town down a steep hill if you take the trail but still only 15 minutes or so. The grounds are nice enough, the pool not so much, and the staff are OK. We had... More

This hotel was recommended to me by a colleague. At first I was not sure if I should go because of the previous very negative review, but at the end decided to give it a chance, and I am glad I did! Upon arrival, my family was greeted by a charming 2-year old girl shouting 'ninos, ninos!' and hugging my... More

Firstly, it's a nice place. Quiet, peaceful and away from the town. But it's a LONG way from the town. So far that you are basically compelled to eat at least one meal a day there and it's a taxi ride to get to it. Definitely not 10 mins walk. Secondly it's stupid expensive for what it is. We didn't... More

I spent one night in march 2013. I was not satisfied by the services of the hotel : bad breackfest, no internet access, restaurant closed, far away from Sorata (40 min by foot instead 10 min on their advertising). lot of humidity on the rooms, mosquitos and spiders. Due to the huge price paid, I explain to the staff my... More
