One of the most impressive foyers and ground floor atrium I have ever seen. Lovely, leafy indoor garden which provides perfect backdrop for meetings. Comfortable, big room, with nice "freebies" in the bathroom and glorious views towards the Tian Sien mountains and the ski resort of Shymbaluk. Very friendly helpful service and a lovely breakfast, but rather sad, empty restaurant the night before, where I was the only person there. Superb underground pool and spa.
My only complaint was that there were too many "single" ladies sitting around in the late evening looking for company. They weren't offensive, didn't pressure you, and were indeed very pretty, but I'm not sure a hotel of this standing should allow quite so many of them in looking for opportunities however pleasant they appeared. Would certainly go back upon a future visit to Almaty.
