Pls don't book that hotel! Bad room, tiny smelly bathroom, bad service at the restaurant and, to cap it all, at check out we had to pay our 2-night stay, despite the fact that it had been already paid by our travel agency as early as 20 days before. No use reassuring them about the payment and even letting them... More

We stayed in this hotel for 3 nights in April 2013. The location of the hotel is not very nice, but as there every car can be used as a taxi the central attractions are easily reachable. The staff is very friendly and helpful. Rooms are quite normal. Breakfast is also nice.

We got upgraded to the 1 bedroom unit for this hotel because our tour operator messed up our reservations. It's got one T/B which for some reason was by the main door and far from the bedroom. Our view was pretty much that of an old building and smoke stacks of a nearby power plant. The one bedroom unit still... More

We took a flight to London via Almaty and had to do an overnight stay at Almaty. We were expectedly skeptical about taking an Air Astana flight with an overnight stay at Almaty, Kazakhstan. What surprised us was how clean and well planned was the city of Almaty. Also what was equally surprising was Hotel Astra. Not only was it... More

Albeit quite a way from the city centre, this hotel is located right next door to the rail station, handy for trips back and forth to other parts of the country and for the informal cab rank outside it. A massive supermarket in the basement of the mini shopping centre next door provides a plentiful supply of western goods and... More

Hotel Astra is in just barely in the center of Almaty, but not particularly well located to most places you would want to go as a tourist. Even though we asked for non-smoking rooms, the rooms were clearly still very very smokey. Also, the Aircon in the rooms basically did not work at all. Since the street was quite noisy... More

Helpful staff and free wi-fi. Airport transfers are available. Small but adequate buffet breakfast is included. The restaurant at the hotel is open for lunch and dinner also. Loved their club sandwich which included a fried egg! Across the street from a decent-sized mall and grocery store, also the train station, but too far from most points of interest in... More

Astra seemed to be the best-reviewed hotel under $100 in Almaty, so I gave it a go. Mostly it's pretty good but there are a host of relatively minor problems that wouldn't be tolerated at a western hotel. The staff are good and most speak English. Some look very dour but they generally provide good servuce anyway. The common areas... More
