Staying In Kazakhstan Hotel, Almaty

Kazakhstan Hotel is a prominent landmark in Almaty as it is the city's 3rd tallest building. I have read many guests' reviews which are not in favour of it but my stay here was absolutely pleasant. I got a room on the upper floor which commands a great view of the city. The breakfast that comes with the stay was lavish and above average. The location is also a plus point as many of Almaty's attractions are within a 3-4 km radius around it. You can even walk to some. Though this hotel is not located in the heart of the city, its vicinity offers ample dining options.
The standard room which is probably its cheapest room is fairly well equipped. There are sufficient wardrobe space, counter tops and drawers - quintessential features I often looked out for in hotel rooms. The facilities provided are also sufficient for a comfortable stay. Free WiFi, bottled water, water boiling facilities, a mini-bar, a TV, a hair dryer, bedside tables and lamps, a coffee table and chair are typical features of a 3 to 5 star hotel and all these are available in the room.
The floor carpet is a little aged though but generally the room is clean and comfortable.
The washroom would have been better if there is a wider sink top. As it is you can hardly find enough space to put the toiletries.
   Almaty City View From My Room
I get a good city view from my room but I regretted not visiting its bar on the 26th floor which is also its highest floor - not for the booze but for the cityscape panorama which I think should be magnificent as this is the topmost floor.

The hotel lobby is very spacious. There is a currency exchanger beside the reception counter and a lobby lounge with ample sitting places.
   Comfortable seats and sofas for hotel guests
There is no swimming pool in this hotel but there is a fitness centre. There are 2 restaurants and 2 bar/lounges and a number of meeting halls.

Breakfast At Balcony Brasserie Restaurant
Balconie Brasserie on the 2nd floor, is the hotel's main restaurant. Buffet Breakfast is served here every morning.

I was pleasantly surprised by the generous spread of breakfast cuisines in this restaurant.
A variety of whole fruits are also available.

Lunch At Noodles Cafe And Restaurant
'Noodles' is Kazakhstan Hotel's second restaurant. I had a delightful lunch here.
The decor of 'Noodles' is awesomely unique with myriads of drawers in the midst of a very chic setting.

'Noodles' serve a variety of international cuisines with local Kazakh flavours.

I had the opportunity to savor some of its best food.

Looking back at these pictures really make me drool.

I would not specifically recommend Kazakhstan Hotel but I did have an enjoyable stay there!
