The hotel is located in the southern part of the town of Alma- ty and is situated in a large, private green area. The access to the hotel is from the South side of the property where there is also a restaurant connected by a glazed walkway to the main building of the hotel and the carpark. The formal entrance and the hotel reception are in the northern part of the building, overlooking a gorgeous park of conifer and birch trees.

The project includes 73 rooms and suites across three floors, a lobby, a new spa and some offices and meeting rooms on the ground floor, as well as technical spaces, a laundry andstorage in the basement. The design provides the complete renovation of the existing building, keeping the existing structures, the concrete slabs and the main staircases with the original mosaic cladding, which will be restored.
