Hg2 : The Hedonist

A Hedonist’s guide to…


Voyage Hotel
A quiet, courtyard hotel with quirky lift upholstery.
The Royal Tulip
A mountain retreat for those who appreciate the finer things in life.
Polished five star hotel boasting some great restaurants and one of the best spas in Almaty.
Kazzhol Hotel
A peaceful small hotel, the Kazzhol is a cheaper alternative for those looking to stay close to all the attractions.
This fabulous time-warp of a hotel - in terms of architecture style and service - is one of the most evocative places to stay in Almaty.
Rahat Palace
A decent, if not luxuriously refurbished hotel, the Rahat will tick all the boxes without overwhelming with glamour.
Holiday Inn
A safe bet with its comfortable, neatly designed rooms and ideal location in the centre of the Business District.
Hotel Kazakhstan
An austere, spiky skyscraper, the Hotel Kazakhstan encapsulates the architect's dream for the future of Almaty. Panoramic views guaranteed.
Dostyk Hotel
Luxury apartments with grand country house style wallpaper and wooden sleigh beds.
Astana Int’l Hotel
Perfect for business travellers, this modern hotel has all of the amenities and services you need for a restful stay.
A Club
A quintessential Kazakh experience with colourful, almost kitsch, decoration and unique themed rooms.
OMG! Some of the world’s most beautiful holy places
