“Very good”
Reviewed 3 September 2012

After an intensive Internet research for a cheap hotel in Almaty which was also decent enough, I found Hotel Zyliha. I stayed three times there during my trip in Kazakhstan. It seems almost every room is different, even in the same category. There is not always soap, dental kit or slippers and some equipment needs maintenance. But it is clean, looks quite new and there is even a bathrobe in the room. There are two girls at reception working in shifts, one speaks English and the other understands it a little bit. Breakfast is in the adjacent café. Menu is only in Russian and the waitress doesn't speak English but she will offer you basic stuff.

The first room I stayed in was economy (8,000 tenge) and was located on the ground floor next to the café. It was big enough for me and my stuff. Views to the inner yard and no sun, so the lack of AC was bearable.

The second room I stayed in was economy, too, but located on the second floor. There was AC but no remote to control it. Smaller than the first one. It was impossible to use the washbasin in a proper way because it faced the shower!

The third room I stayed in was standard economy (10,000 tenge). It was on the ground floor and looked almost like a junior suite because there was a bedroom and a reception area. No AC, though. The shower was better, sort of a hot tub. But in general I found this room and bathroom a bit more uncomfortable compared to the other rooms I was in before (I was lacking hangers and mirrors).

Wifi is free and it worked for me in all rooms.

It is located on the border of the city center but there is a metro station right there. And plenty of buses if you figure out how to use them.

The only thing that didn't work out for me was the transfer from the airport to the hotel: they asked for my flight details but on arrival no one was waiting for me.

I would stay in this hotel again.
