Hotel is actually well located for both business and tourism. Just walking distance from Panfilov Park. Staff (Vladimir) was very helpful and very willing to help me around in anything I needed. Rooms are comfortable and breakfast was pretty good. Stayed already twice in this hotel and will surely stay a third time.

You probably do not go to Almaty that often to stay in an average hotel? The location is ok, it's close to central locations, the pricing is good. Breakfast is also good, even personnel is more busy is most cases with theirs own talking and making fun. Rooms are mainly comfortable, but needs renovation: it looks the last one was...

Stayed here last week for 6 nights. Positives are a great location in central Almaty, fantastic free spa center with great pool, sauna and steam. Breakfast was ok and nobody tells you eggs are available. The big negative is the very small room size and especially the heating which is way too hot even when turned completely off. Shower is...

Grand Tien Shan has a good location but the plase is run down - stained carpets in the corridor and a smelly room make no good environment for a visit. The worst: The prize is completely out of range: 47'500 Tenge per night for a single use very simple hotel room just too much. Place not recommended

Almost like a boutique hotel, the lobby, rooms and the spa are cosy with a character. My superior room was small but very well kept with clean and spacious bathroom. Reception and restaurant staff seldome smile but the hosekeeping staff were fantastic. Perhaps, the management should consider replacing the reception staff with the house-keeping and cleaning staff who always greeted...

I booked that hotel due to non-availabilty of other hotels. It has been a big disappontment, especially the service. Hardly English speaking staff (if you do not speak chinese its hard to find someone to tell your wishes), small breakfast buffet, elevator, which takes ages to go from the 1st to the 3rd floor, 15 min to check out (as...

Stopped-over in Almaty for 3 nights as a tourist and stayed at the Grand Tien-Shan in a superior room. The room was clean, spacious and comfortable and had a decent bathroom with a large tub. Breakfast was good, as was dinner in the restaurant. The hotel is well located and several parks and shopping areas are within walking distance. For...

The hotel is very well situated close to the Almaty city center. Although it is mainly a business hotel we have had an excellent service as a family here. Spacious and clean rooms, decent breakfast, very friendly and helpful staff. The only minor comment: espresso coffee is not included in the breakfast... I think it should be.

In my opinion it's quite comfortable hotel to stay in for several days. There is everything which it typicall for hotels (gym, breakfast, free Wi-Fi zone... ). Prices are above average but within acceptable limits for business trips.

I was staying here for one night during my transit in Almaty.. The hotel has good reviews and price point was quite great so I decided to choose this hotel. The location is quite handy as it is walking distance to some markets and restaurants. But that was about it! I don't think this hotel is a four star! Maybe...
