I spent 1 night here. My room was clean & quiet. My only complaint was that the AC did not work well, and my room remained quite warm the entire night. Wifi was good, bed was soft. Also their restaurant has cold draft beer.
This hotel very well run, a welcoming gem. The staff is attentive and eager to help. Nikita helped arrange day trips and made sure our room was comfortable. We had plenty of space in the standard double, a firm bed with new bedding, and a stylish bathroom. We had dinner preordered in the restaurant most nights, plov one night, tasty Korean food another. Aziza helped us choose good dishes to try. It’s not in the center, but there’s a wonderful urban park nearby, and it’s cheap and easy to get cabs with Yandex or with the staff’s help.
This hotel is a hidden gem in Kazakhstan's third largest city. The staff are ver welcoming and very helpful. They managed to get in touch with Air Astana for me when the latter cancelled their flight. The room is very cosy and splendidly furnished. The internet is extremely fast. The staff organised taxis for me and took the trouble of explaining to the non-english speaking taxi drivers where I wanted to go. In all, a delightful night's stay. The owner Vadim is also very friendly and helpful. The restaurant serves Korean food which is a real bonus.
We spent two night at the Orbita Boutique Hotel in Shymkent last summer in mid-August 2017 and not to spoil the surprise but it was fantastic! While we were mostly there for work we only spent time at the hotel at night sleeping but the sleep was restful, the staff were amazing, friendly and so helpful with everything we needed. The hotel is clean, affordable, the only drawback is it is not really central but still handy to all points that you would need to get to, just be aware that it is not officially “downtown”. Lots of great cafes and dining options around the hotel and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay.
Extremely helpful staff! 24 hours before departure, I received a call from the hotel asking for my itinerary if I wanted a free pickup from the airport. Check-in time is when you arrive. Breakfast and dinner included in room rate. Food uniformly good. Thai-style meat, Korean beef soup, and excellent salmon steak (this costs €9) are on offer. Clean and hygienic room, done in Uzbek style, I had €5 per night upgrade to a suite with a recline-against-pillows dining cove. Room decor and lighting are tasteful. Bathroom with all amenities. Bar has Czech beer on tap, cold, and never too much froth. Most of all, people are most friendly, and willing to engage and accommodate, even arrange taxi trips for me to change currency. Strongly recommended folks!
