I was pleased by the location, staff level of professionalism, cleanliness, fitness facilities, and the breakfast. The bar was open for 24 hours for drinks, beverages and food during late night / early morning activities. The hotel has an ATM on site and many of the staff speak English. There is a very nice park next to the hotel and outside restaurants / business within walking distance.
Make sure that you confirm a shuttle from the airport especially if you don't speak Russian or Kazakh. The hotel did not send the shuttle and negotiating for a taxi was very difficult. The hotel charges about 10K tenge (30 USD) for the shuttle, worth it to prevent the hassle!! Heavy traffic during rush hours so you may have to wait. Get some good translational apps on your phone before you go.More
