This is possible the best hotel in Astana so please read my comments in the context that standards in Astana Hotels are very low / poor. There are a number of new hotels (international chains) such as Marrioot, ritz carlton four seasons etc under construction which hopefully will add more competition and consequently improve quality. The prices however given the kind of hotels under construction may not come down.
Have stayed here twice in the past two months.
The lobby is old fashioned and large with a coffee shop at the far end. The reception itself is small with 3 checkers. The check in was smooth. The rooms are average and for a radisson probably below average. Average furniture (plasticy feel) and disappointing interiors the room is at best average (could argue disappointing on the whole). The bathroom was clean and ok. The shower in my room was broken in both my stays and the over head shower had poor flow. The shower for some reason did not have any shower gel or soap. The only soap was at the sink to wash. The TV channels were limited and other than CNN had no english.
They have one restaurant which also serves breakfast. Breaskfast was ok - veggies wont get anything beyond fruits and bread. I was told, other than Pizza, there were no vegetarian options for lunch / dinner. Decided to eat out. The hotel has a number of restaurants at the basement level which struggle to provide for veggy food but atleast try. This place also has a night club which opens only on the weekends.
The gym is in an adjoining building and can be accessed through an interconnected passage way on production of a coupon one must collect from the reception. the gym is a very large commercial facility. Was ok not befitting a 4/5 star experience.
Overall, horribly priced below average hotel but I am told still the best in Astana
