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.

  • Set high amongst the hills surrounding Almaty this location is the world's highest ice skating rink. Parking is available at the entrance to the venue, but you need to walk up quite a lot of steps to get inside the rink. Once you reach it you can see how large the rink is & how high it is. Bear in mind that Almaty is already high. Views from the top of the stairs present good photo opportunities. Behind the rink is a large, high wall, similar to a dam wall, that was constructed as a safety against water runoff from melting snow & glaciers. A sombre reminder of the dangers in this area during Winter. If you are feeling energetic you can climb the lengthy staircase to the top of this wall for views of the mountains surrounding the city. Highly recommended.
  • Ice skating rink. Could not do during the summer, so were selling ice cream, etc.
