Not an issue for me, but not an appropriate location to stay for travelers with limited mobility.
This beautiful micro-hotel is the perfect place to stay in Almaty. On a main street within close walking distance of grocery, bus lines, metro, and all of the city's major sites, this gem of a hotel also offers quiet and privacy. Rooms are on the third floor. They are newly furnished and decorated in a modern style, and are immaculately clean. I was patently surprised by the flatscreen TV, mini bar (with plenty of extra fridge space), slippers and waffle-weave robe, and tiny balcony overlooking the park behind the building. WiFi was very fast. Staff was there 24/7; they were pleasant and helpful, and spoke good English. One-way free transfer to airport or train station was exceptionally useful. If I'm ever back in Almaty, I will definitely come here.
