I've been coming to Almaty for 5 years now about 6x per year for a week or more. This is the best all-around hotel, period. The service and breakfast are outstanding and the best of any of the hotels I've stayed in here (Intercon, Royal Tulip, and Hyatt before it turned into Rahat Palace). The hotel is new, modern, and very well appointed. Location might be a little further from city center, but it makes up for it by being right next to Essentai Mall so you have a number of choices for food within a 2 min walk if you can't afford 5 star hotel food every night, plus shopping, movies, and the river (aqua duct) walk. And b/c of their partnership w/Marriott, you get Marriott points (which I've found to be one of the better point systems when staying outside of the US).
