Stayed here on business for 7 nights, and really enjoyed my stay.
My room was on the 4th floor, south facing with a view of the mountains (and the apartment building on the opposite side of the road). It was spacious, with a decent sized desk/work area and there were plenty of well-appointed electrical sockets.
There was plenty of drawer, shelf and wardrobe space, and the bathroom was a good size with a jacuzzi bath and a decent separate shower.
The only niggle I have is that the bathroom and the room were not cleaned to 5 Star standard on a daily basis - e.g. carpet not vacuumed every day, and the glass panel in the shower was not cleaned for at least 2 days, used glasses and cups not always cleaned/removed from the room. As I said, only a niggle as this is supposed to be a 5 star property.
The plentiful supply of complimentary bottled water was a nice touch.
I ate in the Lobby Bar most days. It is a comfortable area to rest and relax with a good choice of food, nice presentation (especially the mini burgers and the Pad Thai), and friendly staff.
The hotel has a fantastic spa, pool and gym -I had an amazing Bali massage and reflexology session.
The hotel is in a good central location, and there is plenty to see and do in the area.
For Almaty, the hotel is well priced.
