Hotel is a god send if you are used to spending nights in a tent. No very good hotel with Market just over the road for food and all other essentials. Although they do have a restaurant, we did eat out in Ashgabat. Modern and comfortable, polite staff, with the use of free wifi, essential in a rally and route... More

I was in my way home from Hazar to Bucharest and I spend one night on this hotel. The hotel is not new, but very nice refurbished, with all the modern comfort. The room was small, but friendly, internet free is a plus for. Cross rod in front of the hotel is the Russian Bazar, where you can get lot... More

Right in the center of the city, the hotel as a fair and rather good service. From this year, even have free wifi in all rooms (certainly well checked by local authorities, but rather fast which is a rarity in Turkmenistan). Don't expect anything exceptional, but with the open air swimming pool you can make your stay almost enjoyable in... More

A refurbished hotel in a good location. Rooms are small but well decorated and the beds are comfortable. Restaurant was just ok, meals were unremarkable. Wifi worked very well in the rooms. Wlking distance to the Russian market and the Horse fountain view from the rooms was nice.

The Grand Turkmen Hotel is about as central as you can get, within walking distance from the Russian market and Presidential Palace. The staff at the front desk and in the restaurant were extremely helpful. The deluxe room was very pleasant and comfortable. The food at breakfast isn't great, but it serves its purpose. There was one misunderstanding, where the... More

We were last month for several days in this hotel. It supposed to be a 5 star hotel, but building and employees do not meet the 5 star requirements at all. For example the restaurant employees in the restaurant did not speek English at all. There was no winelist, in fact there was even no wine at all, Just one... More

This was a comfortable hotel with very small rooms. The rooms however were nicely decorated and we had a view of the Horse Fountain. Beds were comfortable and shower was adequate. The breakfast was another story. It was very skimpy with few selections . You could order omlettes which took a long time to get but were fine. Staff had... More

If you don't smoke and love to smell 2nd hand cigarette smoke, then you will love the Grand Turkmen. Our room was supposed to be in the refurbished wing. They stuck us in the old smoky wing. Our clothes reeked from cigarette smoke. It is a very short walk to the Russian Market. If you are Russian, you will love... More

It's in the middle of town. You might say that's a good location but as there is next to nothing in Ashqabat that's worth the trouble of going to see it doesn't make much difference. Great wide avenues, monuments and memorials, gleaming white tower blocks of apartments and offices - but no people - lifeless. A ferris wheel that's indoors!... More

Location is perfect, better than for instance Sofitel Oguzkent, but that is the only plus compared with Sofitel Oguzkent. In my opinion they deserve max 3 stars, outdated rooms, sometimes no warm water, poor breakfast, no money change facility or ATM. Beds are extremely hard. Some employees were helpfull, but some at reception not at all.
