I should clarify that my "very good" rating is based mainly on experiences in other hotels in Kazakhstan. Still, I think the Grand Park Esil is a fine place to stay in Astana. The location is great: in the old part of the city, near plenty of restaurants and shopping venues, and also close to the river, with easy access... More

Grand Park Esil is a fine place to stay in Astana for a short trip. Well located to explore the city on foot, restaurants nearby, a plentiful and delicious breakfast. Clean rooms. Pleasant and helpful service.

Average Soviet style hotel but offers good service,the rooms are very basic but clean and service is very friendly. Located in centre of city, a decent option to stay when compared to over priced hotels in Astana city.

I have stayed in the Esil twice ( October and November) in 2013. In comparison to the Rixos in Astana where I also stayed twice recently, the Esil has a more agreeable location close to a number of restaurants and shops and it also has lower prices. The service is pleasant and the food is simple and of reasonable quality.... More

Grand Park Esil is by far the largest remaining building from pre-1917 times in the old part of Astana, from times it was called Akmola. It must have been seat of the Russian administration when it intensified control over Kazakhstan in the 1870s.

The location is nice, not too far from different places to eat, if you do not want to eat at hotel's restaurants which were good too. Breakfast was good, and the staff was friendly. Biggest minus was the tiny room: only place to open the suitcase was the bed. Cleaning was well done, and the other services were good too.... More

Salads, soups, items familiar to westerners. English menu. Quiet music. Inside the hotel is tastefully done with an amazingly good gift shop for its size. Quality in an understated way. Frequent travelers have found comfort and refuge here for extended stays.

Before going to Astana on business trip I was offered to stay at Doman Hotel, but after reviewing Tripadvisor decided to change it in favor of Grand Park Essil. Well, Astana seems to be really hugely overpriced if the hotel of Essil kind costs EUR 100 per night. It is situated in a very big Soviet era building. Reception area... More

A very nice 4 star hotel. I've had the deluxe double bed room, which is just the right size, it had a big bed, a closet, working space and a shower. Don't expect something too fancy though.
