On our last night in Almaty, we had to find an inexpensive hotel that 1. is central, 2, that always has rooms available, and 3, will store our luggage until our night flight. Zhetysu served these purposes. We asked to looked at different rooms and decide to pay a little more (US$78) for a suite which was much much better... More

Opening the door only let in the traffic roar and pollution. The bathroom was very old and in need of repair. In fact the room had a repairman outside it digging into the wall... More

We arrived in Almaty after midnight and by the time we arrived at the hotel, it was late and we were exhausted from the long travel. My first impression was how dark the reception area & halls were. All but one light was turned off. It was a little unnerving. We checked in and made our way to the small... More
