Good place to stay walking distance to the bazaar, bank, supermarket and restaurants. The street behind the hotel led to a walk through beautiful gardens filled with roses. The hotel itself was comfortable and the breakfast was adequate.

We had a good stay in this hotel. Walking distance to the bazar. Staff at reception friendly. Staff in restaurant ignorant. Breakfast basic. Breakfast room shows aging. Uncomfortable chairs! Rooms okay. Fridge. Balcony (no chairs) bathroom with bath. Internet slow. Tv channels very limited. No safe

The location was perfect. Heading north it was close to 2 bazaars and a nightclub. Heading south it was adjacent to the shiny, new city. I was only there for an overnight on my way out of the country after a week-long business trip. My 3rd-floor room was clean and I had a view of the new city. My bed... More

GOOD LOCATION BUT THAT IS ALL. breakfast better than I expected. Beds hard and pillow like a rock. Took 2 days to get one slightly better.No pool, no minibar, no TV. Boring. Fantastic city with beautiful buildings, gardens, statues etc. Restaurants in area pretty poor food and beer $9.00

Ashgabad is an impressive city but Government control around government buildings and parks is very strict. No Photos. In the hotel the front rooms are quite large and the back rooms are cozy. Probably better views from the back. You might even sneak a photo! If you see the mini bar prices in local currency you will think this is... More

For Ashgabat, this is a great choice. A solid 3+ star hotel. Customer service is good. Breakfast is ok. Location is great. Rooms are ok. Avoid using their taxi service. Cheaper options right out on the road. Wifi is fair, but that's a problem all over Turkmenistan.

Very impressive on arrival, equally when entering. Then its downhill I'm afraid. Built by the government and run by the government with little or no advice from anyone involved in running hotels. The standard rooms are tiny and rapidly deteriorating, the balcony was a mess, and a very large pool of water appeared from under the bath every time we... More

There is good shopping in the bizarre (cross the street and go about 100 meters) for just about anything you like as far as food and drink, not much stuff for tourists. If you'd like to bring one...
