What an amazing property. As soon as you walk into the multi-story atrium and lobby area, you feel as if you have "arrived". Everything was very well done, the room was impeccable, the food was great and it was a pure pleasure to relax amongst the greenery of the lobby area. Included in the room rate is use of the sauna and hammam. I went to the hammam twice and both times I had the marble hot stone all to myself. I traveled to Astana afterward and had booked a stay at a large well-known international chain. When I passed by the Rixos in Astana, I immediately wished I had booked there, based simply on memories of the Rixos Almaty.

Room Tip: Rooms facing south will have a nice view of the mountains

Stayed here for 7 nights toward the end of June. From beginning to end it was a wonderful experience. We were well taken care of by the staff. Rooms were very comfortable, Spa services were great. Breakfast Buffett was fantastic. We were with a big group that had to leave around 6:50 for 3 mornings and the staff opened up 30 minutes early for us so we could have breakfast before we left. Thank you for your kindness. Also. a shout out for the front desk who literally walked us out to the street to show us how to get a shared ride for places we wanted to go. Over and beyond. thank you .I misplaced the paper with names of front desk workers but they were very helpful.

Stayed here for one night on business. Perfect location, hotel provides airport pick up which is really important as taxis in Kazakhstan can be difficult and not to be trusted.
The rooms and bathrooms are large, newly renovated and comfortable.
The internet is fast and free.
The hotel is a grand, imposing building in a central location with various restaurants and cafes nearby.

The service was warm, efficient and friendly.

Nice hotel, thanks!

I work in Kazakhstan from 7 years and I think I had the possibility to sleep, at least, in 10 different hotels in Almaty, BUT, from when I tried Rixos Hotel, I am sure I have found the one I needed.
In short:
- ALWAYS very kind personnel,
- Management very customer oriented,
- Care of the need of a single client (they remember my preferences in bedding and room kind and always provide them to me),
- Very good food at restaurant, lobby bar and breakfast,
- Clean, silent and high class hotel.
I am their client and I will be till I will work in KZ.

We booked a deluxe room, which is quite large, having a desk and chaise lounge in addition to a king sized bed.

A Porter helped with the luggage as we were checked in quite early (10 am) - we had expected a need to store luggage and wait in the lobby or walk around town until afternoon check-in, but were pleased we were able to immediately crash from our long flight.

The lobby is beautiful, the included buffet breakfast sumptuous, and the staff is plentiful and friendly.

Alcoholic drinks, however, are measured very carefully and priced by NYC standards - definitely not a bargain!

Have only eaten dinner once at the restaurant so will delay review on that until we have more experience.

If you have the funds, I highly recommend the accommodations.
