2/5 Poor

Happy face iconLiked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort
Somebody smoked throughout all my stay
In general, it's a very good hotel. However, there is one serious downside. During all my stay my room was filled with cigarette smoke. When I complained to the receptionist, they were apologetic, but said that they have one person staying who keeps smoking despite all warnings, and there is nothing they can do about him. Air conditioning system spread the smoke to all rooms of that floor. They offered to move me to another floor, but it was too much of a hassle for me to move my belongings. It surprised me that the person who was clearly violating the hotel's rules and was warned many times was not evicted, even though all guests of that floor suffered because of him. I think this hotel should enforce its rules more strictly.

Two weeks in the Grand Sapphire
Every hotel in Central Asia I have stayed in had some kind of plumbing issue. This one was the hot water, you had to turn the shower and tap to full hot for about 10 minutes for it to get warm enough to shower. A word to the desk and it improved but still a big lag while it warms up. Restaurant I only had the breakfast. Presentation was 100% we are still working on the serving temperature.
