The staffs are friendly, and most importantly speaks english. The room is decent, clean and quiet. Loved the setting of this place. The restaurant in the lobby is warm and cozy. and in the evening, a lady pianist to serenade you. Good place to unwind after a long tiring day... Yes, would definitely like to stay here again. However, wish... More

As you enter the hotel the first thing you notice is the yourt bar in the atrium. The breakfast is very nice and the grill restaurant is great but my favourite is the beer garden in summer with a welcoming smell of shashlik! The gym is basic and the indoor pool area looks like a tropical beach.

ok place, good service and location, but not 5 stars for sure... 4 is fair enough... I just found a bit a rip off that, if you land early as with many Airlines, and get there like 5am they ask you to pay an additional entire day -if you wanna stay inside the hotel-...as they tell you you can't wait...

Pros: - Rooms are clean but not as 5 star. - Breakfast is huge and great. Has outdoor terrace as well. - Staff is friendly. - Reception area is nice looking due to hotel round-around architecture. - Nice mountains view from some rooms. - Fitness area is 5-star: two separate gyms (cardio and heavyweights), beautiful indoor swimming pool (29 degrees...

The area surrounding the hotel is not particularly exciting, while the general noise level was good. The whole inner hotel structure reminds many other "roundish" ones worldwide, is not very pleasant and some areas are a little dark. The room was confortable with a nice view, even if not very spacious. The staff was kind and efficient, but only some... More

It's breakfast selection is varied and delicious. The hotel staff are polite and helpful. However, this hotel needs a major renovation badly. All... More

Just spent 5 nights in Rahat palace for a business meeting. Overall this is an excellent choice for Almaty. The hotel feels very solid, with friendly staff that is always ready to help guests. The design - all rooms face a large inner courtyard with a lovely small waterfall, is structured after a traditional Yurt. Rooms and bathrooms are large,... More

A good combination of the price and quality + a lot of space in this hotel and incredible lobby. There is a nice gym and a sauna, "tasty breakfast". The hotel has a good location. The taxi is better to take on the street (each driver tries to earn money) and it is much less than to call from the... More

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
