Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by SteveF14 Great Stay!!
From the moment we arrived, we were made to feel like VIP's in this hotel. The staff quickly learned our names, they were attentive to our every need, and most importantly, everyone is smiling all the time!! We felt like part of their family by the time we checked out, and hope to return to see our friends in the future.
Great experience, great stay, and well-managed hotel from every angel.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Ruslan Extreamly unfriendly hotel and care just about money
Any personal touch even for long term guests (I stayed here 2 months)
If you would like to pay a lot for average service this is right place.
Strongly not recommend this hotel

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Marc3473 Stay at Intercontinental Almaty
Hotel is fine, good location. Both the centre of Almaty and the airport are easy and reasonable quick to reach. Comfortable rooms, although shower should be separate from the bath (this was not the case), service of guest relations (concierge) is okay.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by BusinessvisitorfromUK Disappointing
Service in the Atrium Lounge is extremely poor. We were practically ignored each time until we shouted out. Checkout was poor: credit card machine didn't work, and they wasted time checking my minibar (when I had honestly declared the final night's consumption on the required form): they should not show such distrust in their regular visitors (and rewards club member).

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Nduko Not worth the money, too hot, and high cost of food
I had to stay at the Intercontinental in Almaty as that is where USAID made the reservations. Here are my complaints:
1) the room was way too small for the money
2) I had to climb into the bathtub/shower, and this was very hazardous as I am 67 years old
3) I could not turn down the heat, nor could I open the window so I did not sleep very well
4) I was charged US$38 for a salad and a bottle of mineral water, an outrageous amount, and this was in the pub, not even in a restaurant
5) I was told that my points would not be recorded as the base cost was less than $200. I have never heard of this rule.
6) It was extremely difficult and hazardous to get a reasonably-priced taxi; the ones waiting outside the hotel wanted outrageous prices.
7) The exchange rate used when I had to pay the bill in tenge did not match the exchange rate listed on the bill. I thus paid more for my stay the first time than USAID allowed, so I will be out that money.
8) there was no special recognition or service for being a Priority Club member.

The Intercontinental Almaty is a great hotel and one of the best Intercontinental hotels I have stayed in (almost 30 to date). Obviously Almaty is not a world metropolis, but it is a very interesting city and the hotel is well located, and has good views. I tried the excellent Turkish restaurant for dinner and was able to dine on the balcony as the weather was still warm enough. I am looking forward to my next trip to Almaty and staying at the Intercontinental!

This is honestly a stunning, comfortable hotel. The staff is professional, friendly, and accommodating. The staff are bright and intelligent. It never ceases to impress me.
I will stay here again on my next trip to Almaty.

Stayed in the Almaty Intercontinental Hotel with family for three days in mid-October. The hotel arranged transportation from and to the airport, and set us up with a wonderful tour guide for a city tour. The Bosphorus Restaurant was delicious. The concierge did a great job pointing us to activities and restaurants nearby. Overall a wonderful experience in a very interesting part of the world.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Alex1234253647 For business in Almaty - Intercontinental your choice
It may look hard to find hotel with reasonable price and good service far from "civilized world". When You need organize conference or seminar for your partners you could find both in Intercontinental Almaty.

Excellent property. Comfortable room. Nice sunbath terrace with indoor pool, hammam and sauna. I came early morning but receive room 7.00 a.m. Instead of 2.00 p.m. Without additional charge. Wonderful breakfast with red caviar at the main restaurant, comfortable executive lounge with good choice of drinks and food.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by BusinessvisitorfromUK Nice rooms, terrible service
The rooms are comfortable. But the service is really not what you should expect from an international hotel. The service in the Atrium Bar is appalling, and the servicing of the rooms is sporadic, with minibar replenishment and turn-down service being random. The wifi is not of a professional business standard. The last time I stayed, the service was bad, and reported faults were not attended to. I had hoped it would be better this time. It was not and I shall look elsewhere next time.

I just would like to add regarding the business centre; I am surprised that you do not offer free access to the internet; the large majority of hotels in your category have free access in the internet as standard;
further the equipment is excellent, but the experience with servers, and printing etc is very poor. It would be reason for NOT choosing your hotel the next time.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by jtb8313 A pit stop between flights
Arrived 8pm departed 1:30am. Enjoyed a beverage and the music at the outdoor restaurant. Room was perfect. The breakfast cart with coffee, juice and a pastry was a very nice touch and a surprise. Well done! Thanks, I would prefer to have a longer stay next time, but this experience could not have been better. JTB August 3, 2013

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Andi73 Ambassador ???
This hotel has a big problem valuing Ambassador members. Either you get an "upgrade" to the same room but only 2 floors up ("but it is with a better view...") , maybe even being called a club room but "of course no club lounge access" , or you dont get anything at all ... what a disgrace. No amenities , no "upgrade" no recognition , nothing as it happened this stay...
