Just an overnight stop waiting for early morning flight. Airport is 10 minutes away. The reception is fast efficient. The rooms are fine, just very outdated, needs updating badly I would not recommend eating in the restaurant, Cold! fast food seems the option, I would have gone out to eat, but when you have a cold pizza with grilled cheese...

Comfortable enough, large room and bathroom, Satellite Television and free WiFi. Very convenient location, relatively close to the city centre, good Turkish restaurant close by too. I found the staff very helpful.

Decent wifi signal, comfortable beds, lovely views of Ashgabat, hot water in the showers and helpful staff. As others have stated, the furnishings were a bit dated, but this would not stop me from staying here again. Definitely recommended.

We arrived at 4 am after the usual immigration delays from the flight from Istanbul. Staff were welcoming and the hotel was slightly better than I expected for a Soviet-era building. Our room had a balcony with a good view over the center of the city. Bed was firm and comfortable and there was lots of hot water in the... More

There was free wi-fi throughout the hotel which was good after previous experience. The bedroom was rather small and dark. Not all the lights worked but the air conditioning was good. There was also a balcony. Another couple had a window looking out onto a blank wall and no balcony. The bathroom had plenty of hot water and lots of... More

I was on a tour and this hotel was chosen but I beleive there are better hotels here. I stayed five different nights and had to check out and in every time - four of the rooms were poor and one was good. On my birthday I had a lovely room but the others were old Soviet type. Dismal decor... More

This hotel advertises itself as 4/5 star hotel, but that it certainly isn't. From the outside I was expecting great things and after 2 weeks on the road doing the stans I was looking forward to this. But as stated in other reviews the rooms were quite dated, we actually had one of the springs sticking out at the foot... More

First of all Katrina and her hotel manager Donovan couldn't have been more pleasant and out going. Unfortunately, I came down with a very bad cold the first couple days of our stay and while my boyfriend was out diving Katrina offered to take me on a ride to the lighthouse for some fresh air. Although I declined as I... More

Reception staff pleasant and helpful.Rooms very dated with old damaged furniture.Bathrooms dated.Breakfast buffet very poor.Like something from Russia in the 60's.Good location.Walking distance to Russian market .Seems odd that in the lavish white marble jewel of Ashgebat such a drab old anachronism can exist.

I did not like this hotel very much. On the good side: the restaurant is decent for lunch and dinner. The location is good, when there is no traffic you can drive to the (just new) airport in 6 minutes. It is also possible to walk in a few minutes to the market, and there are two offcial government carpet... More
