Novotel Living and Ibis Almaty Jetisu Hotels in
Kazakhstan - Interview with GM, Arseniy Tagaev
If you are visiting the beautiful city of Almaty
in Kazakhstan then it is very hard to beat the location and value
that the Novotel Living and ibis Almaty Jetisu hotels offer.
In terms of location, the two hotels, which are
housed in the same building, are amongst the newest in the city
and are surrounded by beautiful parks, plenty of cheap and
fancy restaurants, bars, cultural attractions and shopping that
will keep you happily occupied no matter how long you are planning to stay
in the city.
Plus, because it is a dual-branded hotel you can
pay ibis prices and still enjoy the benefits of shared facilities
such as a larger breakfast, 24-hour gym, and more.
The dual-branded hotel is also ideal for small
meetings or incentives as senior management can stay in the
Novotel Living part of the hotel, while junior staff can be housed
in the slightly more affordable ibis.
To learn more about the hotel which is part of Accor,
Steven Howard spoke to Arseniy Tagaev, General Manager, on 21
In this interview, Arseniy explains the benefits of
being a dual-branded hotel, what the Novotel Living brand is all
about, why the hotel's location is perfect for both business and
leisure visitors to the city, and what the difference in rooms is
between the two brands.
We also discuss the challenges the hotel faces in
terms of recruitment of multi-lingual staff now that Air Astana is expanding its flight
network from Almaty International Airport (ALA) and other airlines
resume and launch flights to the city as post-COVID19 travel
Being part of Accor, Arseniy tells us about the
sustainable initiatives the hotel is taking to reduce waste, and
how the property is embracing technology to enhance the guest
experience. All that and much, much more in the video and podcast
