A chic, brand new hotel that opened in summer 2011, the Manhattan offers 59 elegant and well thought-out rooms in the heart of the Microdistricts area. Local designer Nurlan Kametov – who is also responsible for the look of Cosmopolitan Bar and Vertaliot Public Lounge in Almaty – has given the hotel an eclectic feel with mismatched prints and an abundance of sleek marble. The rooms boast smart Italian furniture and beautiful mosaic tiled bathrooms; and the Manhattan sets itself apart as one of the few hotels to cater to families with practical two-bedroom family suites and special rates. Various preferential packages are also available for couples and business travellers. At present the hotel offers a rather chic lobby bar and restaurant with plans to introduce a roof terrace for summer 2012. This individual and stylish new hotel is definitely one to watch.
