“Hotel is okay but has its weaknesses”
Reviewed November 3, 2013

In general I would say the hotel is okay. Stayed on the 20th floor in A-Block (sound like a jail). Room was actually nice, clean and spaceous. My internet connection (free) was good and reasonable fast. Breakfast was allright. Simply pretty local and therefore you might need to get used to it.

Things that should be changed/improved:

- Heater settings. The room was simply hot when I arrived. Fortunately you can open the windows (although on the 20th floor)
- Bathroom: A proper shower is a must. Standing in a bath tub and spraying the whole place is not what I am looking for
- A mini bar with a cola, a beer, a water and a Red Bull is pretty ridiculous, isn't it?
- The beds: really as hard as the floor with carpet
- A little investment in language classe (English) would make the hotel a bit more international

Anyhow - should there be a next visit, I will look for another place.

I stayed a couple of nights at the King Hotel on business.

I found the hotel to be a typical business type property and as such completely acceptable.

My room was large with a seating and sleeping area, big TV (with English language choices), all the typical stuff.

Restaurant: normal business hotel for central Asia.

Really nothing exceptional one way or another (which for me is a good thing).

I gave no stars for gym etc as I don't know if the hotel has them.

Room Tip: Get a room high up in the hotel as there is road noise.

This hotel is located in the old part of Astana, which is a good thing because the new part is deserted at night. The building is a mix of hotel rooms and rented or owned apartments.

My room was very nice and comfortable. It was large with a colourful yellow and blue decor and an excellent bed and even an armchair. Hi speed wi fi is available free in the room and there is an excellent desk, perfect for working on, except that there is no place to plug in your computer. The nearest plug in or recharge point is the bedside table at the opposite end of the room.

The bathroom is unusually large. The BIG problem here is you have to bathe in a tub which has no overhead shower or even a shower curtain. All you get is a hand spray with a short lead, so to shower you have to sit in the tub, hold the spray with one hand, and wash yourself with the other -- taking care not to splash water all over the floor. This is totally unsatisfactory and for this reason I cannot recommend this hotel.

I stayed there on a business trip in Kazakhstan. I was lucky to get a nice and large room (a suite in fact), but know from a colleague staying with me there, that all rooms are not at the same level of quality. Mine was OK, poorly furnished, but clean. Breakfast is OK, but nothing more and staff are not particularly cheerful. I'll pick another place next time, for sure.

Room Tip: I stayed in the B tower - sounds like it is the best one (from A to C).

The hotel rooms are big but I spent the first night sleeping all dressed up. The room was freezing despite my complaints. The next morning I had a change of room and it was warmer. The bathroom is big but no heating in it and so it is cold when you get out of the shower. The hotel seems new but it is not very well built. The wall paper was coming off and the carpet was not super fixed. In the end it is not a great deal. You can survive but I do not recommend for tourism.
The staff was very nice but there was one guy at the reception who didn't know what to do at all...

Stayd here 2 days at november 2012. Hotel has good location, but you can't get center of Astana from the hotel without taxi. Hotel has too big rooms. It is strange, too much useless space. Bathroom has only bath, without shower, this is very inconvenient. Bathroom is very, very, very cold. Rooms in section C don't have wifi-you may it only in lobby.
