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

Reading a previous review 'you get what you pay for', I am not even sure about that statement! Its not at all worth the money I'm paying (120 USD). I would not recommend staying here unless you're not bothered by noise or drab interiors. I am staying here for business and was booked in automatically by the visiting office here... More

We checked in here as a group of 6, as all other hotels in town were either full or over $300 per night for a basic twin. madness in a town which is based in a low income country such as kazakhstan. Ambassador was an average 3 star hotel with a tired feel and basic amenities. Air con was ineffective... More
