A posh hotel in its own (slightly vulgar) way - with good views from high rooms. We wanted a day away from coach tourism and walked around - meeting interesting people a teacher giving his daughter a driving lesson, small shopkeepers, a wheelchair using painter. But getting back into the hotel a nightmare.- easy as the crow flies, but surrounded...

Originally built as a Sheraton in 1995, it is now Turkmen government run We stayed here for two nights. The problem with rooms is that they vary enormously - we were allocated a junior suite, which was large and comfortable. Other rooms were small an dingy. But in spite of it being a suite, the balcony had no furniture on...

Another TripAdvisor reviewer observed the bed was comfortable on his first visit but was terribly uncomfortable on a return visit. A couple in our group discovered their bed had no mattresses and it felt hard. The box spring was just covered with a pad. We were fortunate to get a mattress whereas other rooms just had a box spring with...

Like others, we stayed here on 3 different occasions, all rooms were pretty much the same average standard. Room cleaning was slack, used towels in one room, balcony not cleaned, and robes not replenished. The breakfast was plentiful, but mostly stale, and not of good quality. The pool was not really clean, but OK. We ordered drinks and found out...

As a previous reviewer said, the rooms do vary. I stayed here three times during my trip to Turkmenistan. The first time the bed was super comfortable and so were the pillows. I has a room on the third floor facing the mountains and it was quite spacious. The second time I had a room in the front of the...

Stayed here 3 times this month. Each room varied and from speaking to friends I was lucky. Rooms on 1st floor near managers office seem to be shabby and tiny with lights not working etc. Mine were all good size, had balcony overlooking pool and enough of the lights worked. 318 was best since it seems to have been refurbished...

We stayed on and off for a total of 4 nights. Twice we were given the same room on the fifth floor and once on the sixth floor. Compared to floors 2 and 3, the upper floors had shabby and stained carpets in the halls and the rooms were very dark and dingy. The main room light was situated in...

There's not many options so reviews probably won't help much, but this was an ordinary place with unfriendly staff. Reception apart from one nice lady were very snooty, the men that allegedly worked there just laughed as I carried the luggage out to our taxi. Room was small, dark and shabby with an odd balcony that looked at a wall....

Chose this hotel based on the review in Lonely Planet hoping for wifi that worked, but that was not the case. The hotel ostensibly has wifi, and your device will see it, but it may or may not actually work. Even the hotel staff admit this fact. I borrowed a laptop from the bartender who seemed to have somewhat of...

I stayed on the 5th floor. Airconditioning worked good. Breakfast was not bad and the room was clean. Hotelbeds are very hard and interieur in the room was a little dated. But for 2 nights I had a nice stay.
