Very nice hotel in the center. But quiet place. Fitness is not big, but open 24 hours. Breakfast offer different and tasty food. Bed is very comfortable. No pool. Stuff is friendly and quick. Very unusual bath but interesting experience

Hotel is a refreshing modern hotel in the heart of Almaty. Location is very centrally located.

Rooms are modern, well maintained with nice furnishings.

In comparison to other hotels in Almaty which are typically over-priced, this hotel is very reasonably priced and offers a more comfortable stay than most. I would definitely stay again.

Good convenient location. Interesting interior design. Nice place to stay both for private and business visit. WiFi works fine. Friendly personell. Air conditioning works perfectly especially taking into account high temperatures outside during summer time. Good place to relax after business day.

I spent four nights at the Saltanat: three before and one after my expedition in Tian Shan. Both stays were very pleasant.
The hotel is located about a 20-minute walk away from the center of Almaty. It is well connected to the center by public transport, standing just off a busy street on a large, secure property away from the noise of the traffic. There's a nice coffee shop 5 minutes' walk away from the hotel, and a small mall is about 15 minutes away on foot.
The Saltanat is bight and modern, yet cosy and comfortable. The rooms are immaculately clean, rather spacious, with fast wifi connection, a printer, tea/coffee making facilities, a large TV, safe box, etc. The views are nothing much, but the peace and quiet are truly welcome after a day out.
The breakfast is good and varied, served in a lovely restaurant with inside and outside seating.
The check-in/out were fast and easy both times I arrived and departed, and the staff were always helpful and accommodating, with a very good command of English.
Overall, Saltanat is a safe, solid choice in the rather over-priced (at least, as far as accommodation is concerned) Almaty. The hotel provides a most comfortable environment in which to rest, with good beds, service and facilities. The only minor downside for some could be the location away from the center - no problem at all given the ease of access to public transport, abundance of taxis and the fact that Almaty, with its green, wide streets, is actually a pleasant scene for a long(ish) walk. Having visited a coupe of other hotels, where my expedition team mates were staying, I would certainly recommend the Saltanat to anyone traveling to Almaty - for business or pleasure.

I really like this hotel. Affordable luxury treatment in Almaty. Nice room. Funny bathroom... But not the first hotel with this set up.
Breakfast is fine too and I had a nice dinner. Quiet atmosphere to relax after a day in busy Almaty. I can only recommend it.

stayed here for two nights: great breakfasts, very helpful english speaking staff, fast wifi and office room, lots of tv stations but few in english, great clean shower and bathroom. i agree whole-heartedly with the other reviewer about the shampoo and body wash, plus other little treats...nice to have. the bed was comfy but gave my back some trouble. excellent location.

Room Tip: ask for a room with view of the mountains.

Stayed here for 4 nights, and have no complaints.

The breakfast buffet is good, the hotel is very clean, the beds and pillows are great, and the shower is in it self a reason to stay in this hotel. If one adds the view of the mountains we had from our room, and the great smelling shampoo and body lotion supplied, I highly recommend this hotel
