No wonder this is Almaty's most popular hotel. Spotless from start to finish. I arrived 4 hours later than planned, reception rearranged airport pick-up. Extremely friendly and competent check-in staff, always there to help. Tidy, well-appointed room, simple and modern. Great breakfast buffet (albeit a bit slow at times). Tiny gym and no other spa facilities a small minus, but... More

I stayed at the Worldhotel Saltanat over a weekend in April following a visit to Astana. What a different place Almaty is - there's far more life than in the new capital city in the far, far north of the country. The Worldhotel Saltanat appears to have been recently renovated. It's situated in a quite central part of Almaty and... More

Nice and clean hotel. Nothing extra, but perfect for business. Very good location, but taxi is necessary. Very quite area, close to the city center. Staff is very helpful, prices are reasonable. A little strange toilet and shower, but you get used to it. Breakfast was ok (starts at 7am). Will stay here again.

We recently went on a trip to Kazakhstan and decided to try a number of hotels (please see other reviews). We stayed at WorldHotel Saltanat for 3 nights. The rooms are big and staff are helpful. The shower, toilet and washbasin are separate (apparently typical CIS style) with the washbasin being in the actual room. The shower pressure is excellent.... More

I wholeheartedly agree with all the good reviews. Nice, spacious rooms, fast internet, extremely courteous and helpful staff. The toilet/shower arrangement in separate boxes was a bit weird, I have to admit, but hey, it worked. Good breakfast - notice you can order omelets/eggs before you start loading your plate with the food from the buffet. Fresh orange juice. The... More

Great little hotel, felt homey. tucked in a quiet area, very peaceful. Check in was great, all of my inquiries were handled on time. Restaurant area was very nice, breakfast buffet was great. Lunch wasn't as awesome, but maybe I just ordered something I didn't like ) Another plus is that Metro is near by, and you can walk over... More

A very short one-night stay but I was impressed. The hotel seems fairly new and the grounds have nice greenery all round. The room felt very modern and well illuminated with the floor to ceiling windows. In-room equipment was impressive including, get this, a laser printer. Excellent toiletries rounded things up nicely. The lounge was small but it served an... More

I chose this hotel based on the reviews on Trip advisor and was not disapointed. Everything was done in a very professional manner and went smoothly. From airport pick up to check in, any requests for advice or help. The staff really exceeded expectations in terms of courtesy. My room was wonderful, spacious, clean, very comfortable and very quiet, with... More

I travelled here on business and found the hotel good value, clean and comfortable with good internet access. Essential especially when on business. Showers and toilets are a little quirky as they are situated within a sort of cupboard! There are a few good restaurants within walking distance and it felt safe to be out at night although we weren't... More

Very nice design of the room, friendly and welcome personnel. I didn't have enough time to explore additional services but restaurant and bar were pretty good by food's taste and portion size. Still there is a space for improvement - I feel that more than one consierge needed at the reception.
