I had a good experience with this hotel! It's a palace in mountains. It tooks approx. 15-20 to get to Medeu (local resort place) and Chimbulak (where you can ski). The best place in Almaty for rest. Kind and well-appointed staff. Good service.

Very good business hotel, with free wifi coverage throughout. The rooms are enormous, the corridors clad in marble - it's all very grand. Only complaints would be that most things are pretty expensive (not that surprising for a hotel, I guess) and it's a bit of a mission to get to the city centre (45 min walk or 20 min... More

I had a very bad customer experience here holding a corporate event. While passing by the conference halls where my event was held the owner of the hotel disliked my guests, mainly students, and started shouting that the status of the attendants does not match the high standards of his hotel. What made the situation even worse is that the... More

Thanks for the first time in Royal Tulip Almaty - it's like a palace or beautiful museum. Kind personal provide excellent service. Rooms are big and very beautiful. I have been there for a 2 days and still remember feeling like I'm a princess ^^

the standard room was large and clean with a comfortable bed. Temp control in the room was good and the bathroom facilities fine. Food was ok too. Don't know what to compare it to in the city, but it is no Four Seasons. Just a solid hotel. Was very empty when we were there - like a ghost town -... More

We stayed at the Royal Tulip hotel in late August 2014, feeling welcome and enjoying the unusual space. This is a grand hotel in a really good part of Almaty, close to mountains we had a day trip to Chimbulak (Shymbulak), it was very easy to get in and out, but I think what makes it special is a really...

This hotel is very grand and almost over the top in its decadent decor. Large, clean rooms with spacious bathrooms, but the air con doesn't really work all that well so it is quite hot in the room, while the duvets and covers are too heavy for the heat. Service in the bar was truly appalling, with staff unable to... More

I often travel of business and stayed in several hotels in Almaty. On a positive side, the rooms are huge, 3x the size you normally get elsewhere. Breakfasts are decent. The decor is tacky and in 4 rooms I have stayed in over time the shower always had an issue - the water was overflowing covering half of the bathroom... More

This hotel reminded us of places we've stayed in the Emirates - huge room, large marble bathroom with tub, walk-in shower, two sinks, and more. The bed was large and very comfortable with good linen. We appreciated it all since we had just spent a couple of weeks traveling across Central Asia by train so space and comfort and a... More
