One of the best hotel I’ve ever stayed. Everything was perfect; The hotel itself is gorgeous, Room was amazing, Excellent service, pretty good food, Great Spa including the price of treatments and friendly staff all around the hotel. I don't see any reason to book somewhere else. It was just perfect!

Good performance for the price, stayed at 2 Almaty hotels and this one at least not overpriced as others, however it also takes about 100Euro/night. Not a very cozy ambience, but for a business travel is acceptable. Quite simple rooms, but a very clean. Friendly stuff, warm service, ready to help. Quite noizy in the room - as windows directly...

This is a cheap hotel aimed at the bottomed end of the business market. The rooms a spacious and well appointed but the temperature was so high in the rooms it was unbearable. It would have been ok If the air con worked or was even present but no luck.

I stayed here for three weeks, annoyingly the client that booked it had me delivering a course in the sister hotel 'The Grand Hotel Tien Shan' which is very nice and is 500 meters down the road, it was obviously cheaper to park me here! incidentally the two pictures showing the pink hotel on this page are of the Grand...

It is noisy in the daytime but very quiet at night. Earplugs keep out any early morning traffic noise. The breakfast is good with a fairly... More

Four floors, and no lift, but they do carry your bag up and down. Spacious room. The bed is probably OK if you are no more than 6' tall. Bathroom is ok, but the hot water takes a long time to come through (on the top floor, at least). Good free WiFi. TV has many channels, but none in English.... More

Large room with basic but sufficient furniture, clean bathroom. Breakfast offered limited choice, but I had enough. A small supermaket is next door, which can always be useful. Staff wasn't proactively helping, but could help me when needed (I speak a little Russian). Good value for Almaty.
