First I put "poor" rating but then remembered about chewing gum sticked to the bottom of the bath, so I had to take shower together with that ugly thing, and thought that word "terrible" is the exact one. very dirty, no room service, salmon is the only normal food u can eat in the bar "gunsandroses" they have on the...

Old style Soviet hotel, could do with a massive refurbishment. I understand some rooms have been updated, mine wasn't. Small room, old furniture, far too hot. I had to sleep with the window wide open in November!!! but basically clean. good Wi-Fi and my favorite touch in the room, a No Smoking sign, placed in an ashtray!! The architecture of... More

I have learnt a valuable lesson while staying at this hotel. Never trust your colleagues above trip advisor! It is truly the dirtiest, most disgusting hotel I have ever stayed at and will ever stay at. I travel a far bit for work, and when I can for pleasure, and I have been to over 50 countries around the world... More

The place really tells you the recent history of Kazakstan well! Massive building, grandeur lobby, but already lifts and corridors remeber the soviet times. I had to change the room (apartment paid by my hosts) because the first one had the safe which deprogramed itself and started making loud noises:). The second one (12th florr) was much better. It missed... More

For what you pay a night you would expect at the very least for the TV to work and a functional bathroom. The hose on the shower head leaked so bad 50% of the water was lost before it left the shower head. Our TV didn't work and when we called for service a maid showed up to tell us... More

Although Kazakhstan is growing and developing, Hotel Kazakhstan's poor room standard is the same. They renovated most of the rooms but its really hard to get the comfort out of it. The bathrooms have really small sink. You can't even wash your face or shave without splashing water on the ground.The shower cabins are 15cm higher than the floor level.... More

Pathetic hotel Horrendous rooms Absolutely no sense of hospitality (but then that is synonymous with all establishments in Kazakhstan) Rude reception staff.. English is like a language of the aliens. ..and I did not even spend the night after checking in. It felt like a brothel inspite of its grandeur exterior and lobby.

Past it's glory days, Stayed here many times, the last in October 2012 for about $330 per night. That time was my worst experience, grubby rooms, poor service, very overpriced for what you got.

This is a review for a room for $200 per day. September 2013. 1. Dirty carpets. 2. Dirt behind night stands: small hills of dust, some papers left by the previous clients. 3. Broken locks in the bathroom. We told to the manager to fix it; no reaction for 5 days. 4. THEY REQUIRE YOU TO PAY IN ADVANCE. 5.... More
