Pros: Staying at the Rixos was quite an experience. Though neo-Baroque isn’t usually my style of choice, the Rixos really pulls it off. The place is opulently decorated. The bathroom was excellent. The room couldn’t have been more comfortable. If you’re going to be in Shymkent, then you should definitely book at least one night here — you won’t be disappointed.

10.0 Excellent
Pros: The room was super comfortable and clean. The staff was so very nice. Breakfast very healthful and much choice. We all loved Hayat's attentiveness. Olivia artful. The atrium an amazingly peaceful place to be lounging at. The massages awesome. The Turkish sauna so relaxing.
Cons: Hmmmm. I really have to wreck my brain on this one. Except: My husband didn't feel like mentioning this to the hotel agents but .... When going up the stairs from the reception area, when holding on to the railing, the top marble pillar at the top of the stairs is too sharp and too close to the railing. The corner of the pillar sunk about one inch into my husband's flesh of his forearm, causing day long bleeding and days' of healing. You may want to file down that corner...

Cons: Nothing
7.5 Good
Pros: The room was spacious and clean, the bathroom and toilet as well. We made great use of the shared kitchen and kept some items in the fridge. We never met Diana, but one of the girls living at the hostel explained everything to us in a little English and gave us the keys. Diana called to check in if everything was alright and gave us very helpful tips on onward travel and even let us keep our bags at the place after check out when we went to explore Turkestan. It seems a hostel were a few local girls live more permanently and a few rooms are rented to tourist. Good value for money.
Cons: - We arrived late in the dark, and it was a bit hard to find as there was no signage, but the address is correct (Google Maps). Diana advised the administrator would have already left, but the gate would be open. Unfortunately the gate was locked, but there was a doorbell, and one of the girls opened up for us. - the bed was super comfortable on my side, but unfortunately had a big dent on my husbands side who did not sleep that well. - it is not that centrally located, but there is a bus stop and a taxi is easily flagged or booked on Yandex.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: We never met Diana but communicated via WhatsApp - she is one of the most helpful hostel owners I've ever known, and responded almost immediately to any questions, even at 10:3pm then at 6:30am the following day! She gave accurate and concise transport information and alternative bus numbers/routes, called and reserved our seats on the bus from Shymkent to Tashkent, told us where to get excellent fried chicken (Mega Planet - Crazy Chicken :) ) and was so helpful all round. I wish more hostels provided this kind of friendly and helpful service!. Louisa, the administrator, couldn't speak much English but was an adept user of Google Translate & was such a happy, helpful person! A lovely hostel in a quiet area, and an easy walk to buses that go to the centre, the bus stations and other parts of the city. I'm just sad we only had 2 nights in Shymkent - it's a really nice city and the beds were so comfortable!
Cons: We loved everything about this place!

9.2 Excellent
Pros: Good host, clean and cozy

8.8 Excellent
Pros: A really nice place, clean, great price for what you get. It's a homestay rather than a hostel. The room is big, it's got everything you need. Well equipped kitchen, washing machine at a very reasonable price. I'm sure if we come back to Shymkent, we will stay again at Eco Hostel.
Cons: The wi-fi is a bit poor as there is only one pocket wi-fi for the whole place. It would be also nice if there was toilet paper (it was there but only occasionally).

Pros: Really ı dont know why but ı liked there
10.0 Excellent
Pros: I booked another hostel but couldn't find it, and the Universe brought me to House hostel, which felt like so much-needed home at the time. Nina Nikolaevna and her son are very friendly and accommodating to their guests: they literally share their home with travelers. It definitely felt like a homestay rather than a hostel bunk bed. Besides, location is good - it is in a quiet local street yet the bazaar is nearby. The house itself is indeed spotlessly clean, and the internet connection is great. Best, best, best.
7.1 Good
Pros: Nina, the host, gabe us wrong informations about when/where transport is available (instead of just saying, that she didn’t knows). she does unfortunately only speak little english. The hostel is packed with video surveillance cameras, which is a bit creepy.
Cons: everything was very clean. good bus connections to a lot of places.

7.9 Good
Pros: Clean, comfortable, good value for price
7.9 Good
Pros: Clean and comfort
Cons: Breakfast isn't sufficient
9.2 Excellent
Pros: The design of the suite was very clever and so for example we had access to two toilets (useful as we had a 3rd person). We were impressed by house-keeping. We have lived and traveled in region (KZ and Ukraine including the highest priced hotels) and its the first time we did not have to ask for a third bathrobe,etc for the 3rd guest, My daughter is vegetarian and enjoyed breakfast more than in most hotels. Everything about the actual hotel was more than satisfactory unless you include the spa facility.
Cons: The pool was open on the Saturday evening we stayed there but is open to residents who I am afraid on the night we were there had the habit of spitting expectorant onto the side grills (we saw three people do this) - which we found very off putting. I was happy with my massage but my wife and daughter were not. My wife had to ask them to change the sheet covering the massage table and was alarmed that, because they did not have air conditioning in the room, they left the door open in view of people crossing from the changing rooms to the pool.
7.5 Good
Pros: Very nice Rooms, good Location, Airport Transfer, and a unique and excellent late check-out Service (I was allowed to stay in the room till 9pm! )

7.1 Good
Pros: Clean hotel with helpful staff and good facilities. Nice pool and fitness centre, and a good restaurant.
Cons: The bed was very hard - we have stayed at many hotels, but never experienced such a hard and uncomfortable bed before. We asked to change to a room with softer mattress, but there were no other rooms available. Be sure to check the comfort of the mattress before accepting a room.
9.6 Excellent
Pros: Friendly staff Clean and comfortable hotel
Cons: Breakfast - Many dishes were cold and porridge wasn’t tasty at all :(
9.6 Excellent
Pros: The Canvas Hotel is really a great place to stay! The staff are super friendly and accommodating, breakfast and WiFi are great, and the location is a short walk (less than 10 mins) from downtown. I especially liked the variety of food on the breakfast buffet and in the restaurants for lunch & dinner. The saunas & spa are usually not very crowded, which is also great. In sum: This is my go-to place in Shymkent!
Cons: The only thing is that the main restaurant closes at 2200 (10 pm). While the bar restaurant stays open 'til 0200 (2 am), it's a little dark and unappealing. Note that there are no other restaurants or fast food spots nearby. So, if you're a late-night person or need to work all night, stock up on food in advance: there's nothing in the neighborhood and there's no room service 'til morning.
7.5 Good
Pros: nice staff
Cons: the towel is not clean. there are hairs sticked on it.

Pros: Fantastic luxury suite with 2 very comfortable rooms refused to let us pay for 2 suites until we had seen that we only needed 1. We had to leave earlier than booked and they didn't charge us. Room service was as good as I have ever seen. Absolute luxury at a great price! Hope to return!
Cons: We couldn't stay longer!
7.5 Good
Pros: Good location and just a normal breakfast, comfortable room and beds
Cons: Reception staff can’t speak any English at all. Not a place to stay with your family as there are a lot of prostitution happening inside the hotel, multiple girls knocked on my room door offering services.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Very good choice, you really get so much for this price. Large room, quiet, wonderful interior, minibar, large bathroom, great shower, comfortable bed. Client oriented staff.

7.9 Good
Pros: Very friendly stuff
Cons: Room was just next to the road so it was noisy
4.2 Okay
Pros: To be frank not a great experience
Cons: No professionalism: 1. On Day 1, we were the only guests on the top floor. By the time we came in the evening, no corridor lights were switched on and we had to do it ourselves 2. After Day 1, the room was not cleaned. We had to inform the staff and then they cleaned the room. But even on Day 2 and Day 3 the rooms were not cleaned 3. Even the breakfast tray that we had in the room in the morning was not taken by the time we came back in the evening No variety/flexibility in breakfast: 1. On Day 1, we had requested them to bring the breakfast to our room and the staff charged 700 KZT only to bring the breakfast to the room. surprisingly the cost of the breakfast was only around 970 KZT. Also the breakfast tray was not cleared when we came back in the evening 2. There are limited options for breakfast for vegetarians and even if we want to change some options there is no flexibility and the staff charges extra. The important thing is that this flexibility depends on the staff and there is no fixed policy
7.5 Good
Pros: The room was spacious, the bathroom good, wifi working. The beds where good. There was nothing wrong with the place. But we didn't feel welcome at all.
Cons: It is a formal hotel with formal people. They were not interested in us at all.

10.0 Excellent
Pros: Cosy hotel with a terrace.
Cons: The only thing that disturbed me were barking dogs of their neighbours
9.6 Excellent
Pros: Nice rooms, clean and very comfortable.
Cons: Breakfast was a little poor, for my view. I think better to add sth as it was not enough. And no one mentioned that you can have sth else.
4.6 Okay
Pros: The room is large, the bathroom is attractive with clean and high quality fixture, the beds are comfortable.
Cons: While there was a problem with the locking mechanism on our door which was frustrating as we ultimately had to sleep without the ability to lock our door, we did appreciate the hotel’s efforts to try to resolve the situation. For me, the biggest negative about this hotel is the fact that they turn turn off the AC at night, presumably to save money on their electricity bill. I am not sure if they did this because we were the only guests in the hotel, but the result was that we slept very poorly. As well, the location away from the centre of town means that you need to take a taxi to get anywhere except the Upper Bazaar. Finally, due to a power outage when we arrived at the hotel in the morning after travelling all night from Almaty, no one would open the gate as the doorbell was not working. Consequently we had to wait 30 minutes on the street until the power resumed before someone finally opened the door for us.
7.5 Good
Pros: Cleanliness and good staff attitude
Cons: Communication in English is a challenge. Breakfast content needs to be properly defined.

Cleaning was done some days after 16:00 on the day when we were already back ourselves. Some lights where not working in the room.

10.0 Excellent
Pros: Vladimir very nice person. Hostel very clean and comfortable.
Cons: Nothing.
9.2 Excellent
Pros: Vladimir, the host, really took care of me. He was able to schedule a taxi to pick me up from the Shymkent Train Station at 6:38 AM, allowed me to sleep in my bed, even though I had not reserved that morning, and scheduled a good and meaningful excursion to Sauran and Turkistan with Islam, an English speaking tour guide. He also helped get me a taxi to the bus station the next morning so that I could get the bus to Tashkent. He made staying at the hostel easy.
Cons: The room has no air conditioning, so it got a little hot, even at night. (Note that this was in early June.) Thankfully, there was a fan that I used to help fall asleep. Additionally, the WiFi was not functioning, but Vladimir allowed me to use a hotspot to compensate. It appeared to be a momentary glitch.

2.9 Mediocre
Cons: I hadto check out on Sunday and asked for my invoice/bills. The reception said that accounting office are only allowed to issue any proof docs. It sounded ridiculous, but I had no choice and asked them to send me original by post mail and send a copy via e-mail. Today, March 19, 2019 - 10 days past my check-out and I still have nothing from the Hotel. Keep calling and keep hearing promises. They have 3 receptionists. All by the name of MOLDYR. Every time I call, they excuse themselves saying that it was that MOLDYR not me. Very convenient way to mislead and confuse people just by re-routing to another and shifting blame to someone else.

5.4 Okay
Cons: Loud music until very late. The restaurant downstairs had a banquet and a very loud music was on until 3AM. At 7AM someone was banging on our door asking if we were from Aktobe. Only one reception clerk was apologetic. The other did not seem to even care. Thumbs down.

8.3 Excellent
Pros: Spaceous room with tasteful design. Big bathroom and shower, friendly staff at reception. The matress was hard and great! Central location next to bazaar. Safe parking.
Cons: Extremely loud music in the evening between around 9pm and 12am. There seems to be some sort of bar next to the hotel. Though Windows closed, we could not even understand the tv anymore. Our room was facing the backyard. WiFi did not work in our room.
9.2 Excellent
Pros: We requested for vegetarian breakfast and the receptionist really helped us with it since we couldnt speak the language. Since we needed money urgently to pay the taxi driver, they gave us cash and took the money off our credit card (saved us a trip to the ATM). Good hot water. Breakfast was quite good.
Cons: Nothing great about the location. Just a normal bazaar where you can buy some food and some other things. I felt the dinner was definitely not worth the money we paid for the portions (although it was cheap for when we converted it).
6.7 Good
Pros: Rooms were spacious and clean. Shower was clean, toilet with a bidet.
Cons: The hotel is located near the Bazar and was not easy to find. The staff at the reception were friendly - they even offered us a late check out, but the waitresses for the breakfast buffet weren't helpful in fulfilling our requests. Breakfast was not really good.
7.5 Good
Pros: Friendly lady at the reception, clean room. Reasonable price.

5.8 Okay
Pros: Tasty breakfast.
Cons: The reception staff does not speak english, even in minimal base. The bathroom wasn't very clear. For three persons, they gave us a room with only one big bed, but it was also the booking.com fault.
