Sometimes this hotel acomodates people from the top rank, stars and other.. nice place to stay.. it has good food provided. But it's on the edge of city and public transportation is problem you can catch private taxis, who will charge expensive to drop you into the city

It is very difficult to prepare yourself for the city of Ashgabat. With only the power that rests in a single "strong" leader, the whole city has been swept away in the last 20 years, and replaced with white marble tower blocks - I jest not, all of white marble. Then add in the fact that you will see few... More

This hotel was absolutely beautiful and so was this city. And by the way, it is very safe. The furniture in our room was gorgeous. It was large and we had a marvelous view of this white marble city at night. We never expected what we saw and experienced. We would go back there in a second. I can't imagine... More

Looks like skyscraper with classic style inside. Located away from city center. Standard room was clean with ordinary ficilities. People are friendly. Internet connection chargeble and slow. Bar and restaurant are good and not so expensive.

This is quite a grand hotel but definitely has its idiosyncrasies, one of which is that there didn’t seem to be any bellboys to help with luggage. I may have been missing something here but we stayed in the hotel on two occasions and both times we carried our own luggage up to the room. That being said, the reception... More

Located a bit outside of town, the President hotel is a 16 storeys tower build by the former president Niazov and managed by a close Italian friend. Build with luxury but with obviously little maintenance, therefore likely to prematurely fall apart. Nice terrace, swimming pool, sauna, etc. Slow Internet access only in the lobby, sometimes on the 16th floor. Good... More

Really there is nothing around the hotel within walking distance. You can stop gipsy taxi and get to any place in the city for 5 manat (2,8 manat for 1... More

I had no choice, as this was a conference venue. The staff are unfriendly, the facilities lack maintenance and are out of date. The conference room is miserable, the computer could not support Powerpoint attached to projector. The projector bulb was almost dead and they had no replacement. The light switch was not in the conference room, but 25 meters... More
