This large hotel still has a small feeling. The rooms are comfy, the staff helpfull and if you want to relax, there is a large garden at the back of the hotel. The only downpoint is the lack of a outdoor swimmingpool. Do take the BBQ in teh summetime!

Probably the best hotel in town. Big, airy and safe. Large, clean and modern rooms. Very helpful staff. Excellent breakfast buffet with all you could possibly wish for, The hotel is surrounded by a rather large green area. During our stay the breakfast lounge was renovated so we enjoyed breakfast outside on the nice terrace with beautiful mountain views. Not... More

Have not been to the country in 6 years, but this is still a nice hotel - rooms, breakfast, spa, location. Liked the service as well (definitely improved, since my last visit a long time ago). Will definitely go back, if my travels bring me to Kazakhstan again.

My husband and I stayed two nights here and it was a delightful experience. For our second evening evening the concierge got us tickets for the ballet Red Giselle, at the opera house. Mesmerizing! And we had great seats. From our arrival, we relied on the hotels' cars instead of taxis. We did plenty of walking also, but there was... More

I only stayed for a very short night, but the experience was awesome! From the welcoming with the option of tea/coffee and pastries, to the excellent breakfast variety. From the comfortable room to the cozy reception. From the friendly staff to their profesional service, everything was perfect!

Stayed here for as night and was pleased with the service. You need to get the views of the hills from the rooms you stay in. Staff were attentive with quite good English. Rooms were comfortable and well appointed. Certainly one of the best hotels in Almaty
