Hotel and staff live their lives. No exact order of affairs. When booking through the booking was big difficulty in check-in. Booking was confirmed. The manager said that they had no rooms and we can go to another hotel. It's normal at 5 am? As a result, the room given by chance. They did not apologize, and they would not... More

I spent 1 night with my Family. Hotel is a bit old fashioned but well maintained. Our room was on 2nd floor and back side of the building. The rooms at front can be noisy because of the traffic and the bar which is right next to the hotel seems like part of the hotel. The rooms are spacious but... More

I spent there three weeks and liked it not too much. The staff speaks relatively good english, the breakfast is quite ok. The rooms have a good size but I didn't like the one I had first - it was at the street side and was very noisy! In general you can say that you hear lots of things you... More

Stayed here for 2 nights and it's fine. Got a deal through booking.com so I think I paid about 100 euros, and that price is fair. Staff speak English and are helpful enough. It is quite old and dated, but I didn't care. Could hear a party going on next door and it sounded like someone was enjoying it.

If this hotel matches your location's purposes, you can use it for stay in almaaty. Looks like privatefamily hotel. The restaurant on 1st floor is opened all day long, offering food by reasonable price. Staff in reception is very friendly and helpfull. Rooms are very big. In geheral hotel is very primitive

I was the Project Manager for refurbishment project of this hotel in 2002. It is a very old building which was a Soviet Hotel before the breakdown but the building is still quite strong. Some of the rooms are are very small and some of the bigger but no standardized size. Have some connected rooms as well. No good fitness... More

Low quality place. It is lacking maintenance all over the place. The staff does not grasp the concept of privacy, they entered into my room 3 times while I was having nap (trying to adjust to 11 hours of time zone difference) to check minibar consumption, and two other things that while spoke in Kazak I didn;t get. Staff does... More

well, in general there are not too many options of high quality accommodation and prices are really high for the provided service in Almaty. If you're looking for a swimming pool, gym and other luxury, this is not your place, otherwise it's all right. Especially, staff is great - very helpful and friendly.

I've just asked my booking agent to find me another place next time. This hotel is not for me. The rooms are okay in size, but the beds are hard, the curtains don't close properly and the shower will only fit kids. But the worst is the noise. The front rooms have the traffic and subsequent smell, the back rooms... More
