In Kazakhstan the choices you have for hotels are limited especially if you are looking for hotels that are of international standards of 4/5 stars. You also pay a ridiculously high price for that. With supply being limited and demand high, I don’t see the prices for hotels changing anytime soon in Almaty. In my opinion the best option to stay in Almaty is the Rixos Hotel. For your money it is a better value than the Intercontinental and the Rahat (which was formerly the Hyatt), which are in the same price range.
The Rixos Hotel offers comfortable rooms that are well maintained. The hotel has a spacious lobby (and that is an understatement) that features a lounge that is open 24 hours and to the side of it is a bar that has nightly life entertainment. For those that like to fit in a workout the hotel has a small but well equipped gym. Service here would be considered inconsistent. When they are good they are one top of the game and customer service goes above and beyond. When they fall short which can happen easily it is frustrating as no one wants to take ownership of the problem and resolve your problem for you.
The hotel is in a central location where nearby you can walk to a supermarket (called Stolichny which is open 24 hours) and many cafes.
