Business and pleasure travelers will find no shortage of quality hotels in Almaty as Kazakhstan’s biggest city offers an array of options from luxurious to efficient.
At the top end are the city’s five star listings including the Rixos Almaty and Hyatt Regency Almaty. The Hyatt was the city’s first five-star hotel and continues to offer impeccable service. A 24-yurt cafe in the middle of the hotel reminds its international guests they have arrived in Central Asia.
The Rixos offers a stunning seven-story courtyard-style design with a light-filled glass ceiling. But it may be best known for its luxurious spa and banya. The Rixos spa offers an oversized pool, steam-filled massage rooms and all the papering you could want.
Among Almaty’s four star listings are the Grand Hotel Tien Shan and the quant Ambassador Hotel. The Ambassador bills itself as Almaty’s first boutique hotel. And while it may not match the European definition, it’s certainly more unique and filled with character that the larger corporate hotels. The Grand Tien Shan is also a great option as it’s located in the center of the city across from Kunaev Park. It’s also housed inside a beautiful neo-classically designed building that once served as Kazakhstan’s Ministry of Geology.
The majority of Almaty’s major hotels are located close to the city’s business centers. A number of small resort hotels are also offered in the mountains that ring the city.
Most of the major hotels also offer airport transportation and WiFi-equipped business facilities.
With Almaty serving as a business hub, many of its hotels are often most crowded during the work week rather than the weekend. But with a large and growing number of hotel options, you should have no problem finding a quality room.
