  • About nature, mountains, Brooks wrote in previous reviews. Note that the pluses include good territory, very fast wifi which catches everywhere. By cons or limitations: poor breakfasts and, especially, scantily, if came closer to 10. Of course, Connie is exotic, but their presence constantly as bowel movements throughout-overkill. The staff is very hospitable. Thank you.

  • Great Gorge. Pine, spruce and birch slightly. Good rooms, but ... I understand that in the "off-season" need to save but ... 1) Theatre begins with a hanger, and a hotel with "helpful". Friendly reception staff on arrival were unable to calculate the full cost of rooms given prepaid (was ordered in several rooms (suites, cabins in the trees) by four families with different dates of arrival)-said let's pay later. It turned out that the only electric car that can take your luggage to your room now took guests (and then we forgive anyone?) show the numbers and wonder when it will be.

Had to be the father of the family descend into the restaurant and buy two liters of water "Tassaj" on restaurant costs at 750 tenge (about 2 dollars) per bottle. 3) Breakfast-single song. Guys save can and should be BUT is NOT the SAME a) smorgasbord of plates more tea saucers, but less sweet (something like "pirozhkovyh plates"). On the second day (Saturday) when, owing to the influx of people "pirozhkovyh" plates were not enough, brought the usual flat small plates. b) ...

Where to stay in Almaty

Accommodations in the urban area of Almaty can be found almost exclusively in the grid-system city center. Located close to the main train station, you'll find hotels both upmarket and budget, with the former enjoying commanding views of the mountains on tree-lined boulevards, and the latter tucked away on the central district's side streets. Ski resorts to the south, as well as wild camping opportunities, provide good options for those wanting to get active and enjoy the surrounding landscape.
