Again I was there for business, the hotel was very nice, it is a new property so everything is brand new- you can deffo enjoy as for couples and family BUT be prepared to deal with non-sense management and trying to rip you off on every step.
Make sure you check your bill for extra charges that mysteriously was added to your bill.
If you have made a reservation thru internet websites make sure you the rules are clear and the charges are final ..If they see opportunity to get to your wallet they will try: like adding extra charge for this, this and that, unless you immediately notice it and stop it you will end up with many ‘’extra’’ charges
Location of the hotels is on the hill- It is away from the city center, you always need a cab to go to the city center and come back.
Taxi on the street will cost you 80% less from what Hotel will charge you.
I liked the location since I was walking up with crisp fresh air and when overlooking below to the town you see one big dusty cloud covering the town.
Management sits right behind the Front-desk and it is not friendly… they never smiled at me and never asked how is my stay… and I speak Russian, they could ask it in Russian if we thing that the language could have been an issue.
Before entering to the hotel lobby you have to go thru a security arch like in the airport and that is NOT welcoming.
There is a cool disco bar on the top floor and it creates a lot of traffic from the locals on the weekend.
Did not like that part ):
Food is good in the hotel but very expensive, the same about the bar, they have good shisha but very expensive, Spa area is very nice.
