The location is certainly a plus - the hotel is just a few minutes walk from the city centre and you can find nearby some nice spots like City Pub with a decent selection of beers, a small supermarket and Günes cafe. The prices were decent, at about $70 per double room, mine being clean and with all amenities. Otherwise... More

Great 5 stars hotel in the lobby. Rooms looks not more than an old 3 stars hotel in Europe. Service ok but breakfast is poor. Anyway for 80 $ it's ok. Good the position and a bank for money exchange is opposite to the hotel. Always opposite to the hotel, walking right there is a very nice English pub.

In Turkmenistan everything is big: and in Ashgabat all is white. This is a big, clean, whie-ish hotel on the inside. Many things can be improved here: room furniture especially. But it is at a very good location.

We had for nights at the Grand Turkmen Hotel during a tour in Turkmenistan. They give the impression that they are a five star hotel, but I would not give it a star more than three. Nevertheless, it is a more than decent hotel with large rooms, helpful people in the reception and a GREAT location in downtown. On the... More

Not a bad hotel considering. Beds are comfy although I have to say the breakfast is nothing special at all. Semi warm coffee and little choice. Located in a reasonable area and the staff are friendly. Be aware the internet will be monitored.

Is this a five stars hotel ? The room was not so clean, the wi-fi works weakly and the breakfast is very poor. Moreover, for foreigners it is possible to pay only in dollars. No exceptions !!! Some drinks cost differently in relation of the boy/girl who deserves you. I have a completely different concept of a five-star hotel, sorry.

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'.
