Nothing about this hotel deserves 5 stars except for the stunning atrium. Once you get inside your room you will find threadbare carpet, stains on walls, broken hairdryer, awful finishes that haven't been updated in at least 20 years. The gym has old equipment that doesn't work and towels that are so thin you can see through them. The pool... More

This was a great hotel when it was a Hyatt. Now it is independent and showing its age. The rooms are old, the carpets beginning to fade. Breakfast is OK, not great. The gym is good and the pool is fabulous. Service is OK, but not quite what you would expect for the price. I will be trying some of... More

I still love it - but more so when it was the Hyatt Regency :-( It may be faded but lets say faded grandeur. The Atrium ( and the Yurts there) are to die for... breakfast - somewhat russian but still good! Too many american pilots staying there though..

This is a five star hotel but is not five star quality. The hotel is actually an old Hyatt Hotel that Hyatt sold. I can understand why. This hotel is in desperate need of renovation. Ripped, stained and threadbare carpets all around, wallpaper stained, old TV etc. Restaurant: Burger from the bar tasted like an old mule, salad was good... More

This is a clean professionally run hotel. However, the rooms look old and do not befit a five star hotel. Good news: heard rumors that they will soon be closing down for massive renovation. Breakfast was very reasonable with just bearable coffee.

It is hard to see that this hotel is going down. Yes, it was Five Star before, but today not. I stayed 5 days this month together with my official delegation. First impression was not so good, which we faced at Check In. There were three receptionists serving two guests in front of us which made us to wait 20... More

The rooms are old, air ventilation is noisy, bathrooms are not really modern, but everything is clean and comfortable. The lobby and bar area are beautifull. The Grill Restaurant was closed ( apparently for several months already ); the only available food was from the bar, with limited choice, but the Nasi Goreng ( not really local ! ) was... More

Stayed here on my way to Dushanbe. Nothing of note. As has been noted by others, it is old, needs refurbishment and is overpriced. The staff attempt to be nice, but there seemed to be a lot of guests complaining about one this or another.
