About this listing
Well there's a very cozy kitchen with all the usual stuffs in kitchens such as fridge, stove, oven,microwave and plenty of cupboards, a table with four seats, a telephone.
In the bathroom there's a toilet, bath and shower and a washing machine.
In the living room/bedroom which is divided into two parts, there's a tv, a dvd player a sofa which can be opened as a double bed. And a big empty wardrobe with full length mirrors.
In a small additional room behind the main room there's a toilette in one end, and a desk in the other end. There's also a printer.
The flat is reallly warm - so don't worry about cold winters!
Its a short walk (2 minutes) to Abay street - one of the main streets in the city, and you can find everything you need along the street within a walking distance - restaurants (the closest one is chinese restaurant, then a little further is Teremok whihc is mixed cuisine: Russian/European?mb a few kazakh meals with a nice summer terrace, and two streets away my favourite place with Italian bakery and very nice pasta) shops,supermarkets, banks, offices, gym etc! The tube station is about 10 minutes walk (or less) and there are plenty of bus stops around.
What to expect - you will be provided with a clean flat, with bedsheets and towels and if there's anything else you might need I live just a block away so feel free to ask anytime.
You will be given plenty of tips and advice if needed, and possibly free guiding tours (with Engliish speaking guide - i.e. me) if you happen to stay over a weekend or days off.
It's near main roads yet the house is not situated along the roads as you can see on the map - hence its a very quiet place.
Overall it is a nice flat, which I had shared for 2 years as a student, the only drawback is lack of a proper bed but we got by using that sofa; will provide you with plenty of pillows and thick blankets to make up for it :)
закрывать окна, ничего не портить, и держать квартиру в разумной чистоте.close the windows, don't damage anything and keep the flat reasonable clean.
Even though I didn't meet Nazgul in person, I have to say that she was a very friendly and helpful host! All my questions have immediately been answered.
The appartment itself is actually much nicer than it looks like on the pictures. There is everything you need…
Round the corner you will find a small grocery store.
Good value for money!
Also quick wifi (USB stick)!
I highly recommend and would definitely come back! :-)
Being a frequent Almaty visitor I can say that this apartment is one of the best choices the one could do. My thanks to Nazgul for being a good host. Apartment is very nice and cosy. Inside it has all you need to stay for a few days, weeks or as long as you can afford. Location is perfect, the place is located to one of the main streets of the city and surrounded by all kind of amenities you may need, including gym. Basically it is close to everything. So you guys go for it, you'll love it! Nazgul thanx again!
Останавливалась у Nazgul с 3-7 января. Квартира чистая, теплая, светлая. Полностью соответствует фотографиям. Nazgul очень приветливая приятная девушка - встретила, все показала. Проблем при проживании не было. Единственное - интернет на usbмодеме. Это удобно, если у вас есть ноут. Если нет, интернета у вас не будет, нужно учитывать это. Сама квартира довольно удобно расположена - до остановки пешком минут 5. До центра несколько остановок, ездить не составляло труда.
Nazgul herself is an awesome lady, she's really friendly and very hospitable, she went out of her way to make me feel at home and avoid boredom in Almaty. The flat is small but clean & comfortable and it's a good place to stay when used as a base to explore the rest of the city. It's a short walk to the subway and easy to find because it's next to a big sports complex and even the front door is distinctive. All-round positivity!
Я останавливалась в этой квартире с 14-16 декабря 2014 года. Не смотря на поздний приезд, меня ожидали мама и сестра Назгуль, очень приветливые, показали квартиру, были доброжелательны. Квартира чистая, уютная и теплая. Мне было удобно, так как я работала не далеко от местонахождения квартиры. Если в следующий раз буду работать там же, обязательно остановлюсь у Назгуль. Всем рекомендую!
Very friendly host who offered lots of tips and suggestions. This made for a pleasant stay. The first night the heat was not switched on but the host corrected this for the second night. The lights in the main room flickered on and off. Wifi stick worked fine. Location is a bit inconvenient, as others have noted.
Nazgul went out of her way to help me with everything during my stay in Almaty, from giving me directions to recommending restaurants in the area and making sure that everything was okay throughout my stay. The neighbourhood was great. Not far from the city centre, with a subway station at a short walking distance. The flat was perfect, with fast internet from a USB modem and everything as described. I would recommend this flat to anyone wanting a cosy place in Almaty within reach of the city centre.
About the Host, Nazgul
I am a recent graduate.I live near the place that I let out, so I should be available to help you either by phone/or in person. Having lived in Almaty before, I am familiar with the city and can be helpful at recommending places/giving advice. I greatly enjoy meeting new people - and I am always glad to host new guests!
