Grand Tien Shan has a good location but the plase is run down - stained carpets in the corridor and a smelly room make no good environment for a visit. The worst: The prize is completely out of range: 47'500 Tenge per night for a single use very simple hotel room just too much. Place not recommended

Almost like a boutique hotel, the lobby, rooms and the spa are cosy with a character. My superior room was small but very well kept with clean and spacious bathroom. Reception and restaurant staff seldome smile but the hosekeeping staff were fantastic. Perhaps, the management should consider replacing the reception staff with the house-keeping and cleaning staff who always greeted...

Hardly English speaking staff (if you do not speak chinese its hard to find someone to tell your wishes), small breakfast buffet, elevator, which takes ages to go from the 1st to the 3rd floor, 15 min to check out (as...

Stopped-over in Almaty for 3 nights as a tourist and stayed at the Grand Tien-Shan in a superior room. The room was clean, spacious and comfortable and had a decent bathroom with a large tub.

The hotel is very well situated close to the Almaty city center. Although it is mainly a business hotel we have had an excellent service as a family here. Spacious and clean rooms, decent breakfast, very friendly and helpful staff. The only minor comment: espresso coffee is not included in the breakfast... I think it should be.

In my opinion it's quite comfortable hotel to stay in for several days. There is everything which it typicall for hotels (gym, breakfast, free Wi-Fi zone... ). Prices are above average but within acceptable limits for business trips.

I was staying here for one night during my transit in Almaty.. The hotel has good reviews and price point was quite great so I decided to choose this hotel. The location is quite handy as it is walking distance to some markets and restaurants. But that was about it! I don't think this hotel is a four star! Maybe...

I just stayed at Grand Tien Shan for the second and last time. The rooms are clean and nice, but the service is dreadful. At breakfast, you can die of thirst waiting for someone to offer coffee, and when you try to find a waitress, there are three standing around chatting. The checkout procedure for some reason takes ten minutes;...
