In the setting of my work, I had to spend five days in Astana, and the organizers chose this hotel.
This hotel looks exactly like all cookie-cutter hotels around the world, and it could have been located anywhere else around the world and you would not have known the difference.
That said, it was a great stay. The staff was very, very friendly. The rooms were spacious and clean.The spa, gym and saunas are great (all my colleagues reported that they had the best massage ever at this hotel!). The breakfast was wonderful (not least because you can actually get real coffee). Sitting in the lounge can be a tad expensive though. I ordered a latte, for which i was charged $11. Initially, I thought that was way too much, but when it came with so many sweets, almonds and raisins (see picture) it's fair.
The hotel offers excellent free wi-fi and provides FREE telephone calls anywhere in the world (never tried it, but I suspect it includes only landlines)
The hotel also has an excellent restaurant L'Olivo, run by an Italian chef. When it comes to dining at a hotel restaurant, it cannot get better.
All in all, stay is highly recommended.
Bring a lot to read and keep you busy, Astana doesn't have much to offer as a city (certainly not in the winter time)
