The bed was most comfortable, the water was hot, the air conditioner worked and the room quite spacious. Otherwise this flash looking hotel is very ordinary and in much need of maintenance! The breakfast buffet was very average and, on one early morning start, the hot water urn had only just been turned on. A request for a corkscrew to... More

To summarise, I liked the hotel very much. My room was nice, breakfast was good, and so was the location of the hotel. The last morning, however, was a disappointment. I had ordered a wake-up call at the reception the evening before departure, but there was no call. Luckily I had my own alarm-clock with me as a backup. When... More

This is a first class hotel. It is located near the govenment dominated Independence Square, which makes an interesting walk, albeit constantly supervised by military and policemen. You could have a meal at the nearby Günes cafe/bar. The other hotels in Ashgabat are located far more out of the 'centre'.

When we checked in the staff were surly, but over the next couple of days their attitude was mostly professional and helpful - maybe we caught them at a bad time on arrival. The room and bathroom were nice but had a couple of problems. Firstly although there were two of us the preparation was only for one, so we... More

Great location. Well appointed, clean rooms. A bit pricey but we were happy to pay for a little bit of luxury in the form of the pool during the sweltering summer days. The bazaar is virtually across the road, as is the British pub which was a good stop for a beer or three. Walking distance to a lot of... More

Located right in the center of the city; it's right next to the Parliament building. The top floor has a cool karaoke bar. It's full of hookers, but if that's not a problem, you can't go wrong with this place.

Maybe one should use a different scale for some locations. The fact is, this hotel is likely the best one can expect from this era (pre Soviet breakup), and the location can't be beat. The appearance of the hotel is great, and the entrance, lobby and reception area totally fine. What's lacking is comfort in the room, the bed is... More

I was frequent visitor to Ashgabat in 2000-2006 when Grand Turkmen was really Grand. Now it is average, 3*** hotel. If you do not want to stay far away from "historic" center, it is OK. Close to Russian Bazar, some shops, and expats' drinking hole - the Pub. It is also good if you are on budget, receiving per diems... More

My standard room was small and the bed had a super hard mattress, but the room was adequate though by no means luxurious. Good reading light and ambiance were lacking. But it was clean. The hotel is centrally located and near restaurants and a park. While Internet is free it is unreliable. The atmosphere in the hotel definitely felt like... More

I may not have to share mush on the hotel service and its facilities as I stayed at the Grand Turkmen Hotel only for one night sleep at the end of May 2015 prior to my early flight back to Georgia. The room looked small as the king size bad was really a king size with 8 different pillows on... More
