I stayed at Hotel Kazakhstan in May 2008 and can't say that it was a very pleasant experience. I was on the 9th floor and the room looked like it was built in 1920 - the bathroom was decrepid, with holes in the tiles, really disgusting bathtub that looked as though there were permanent stains in it, found 2 roaches, the tv didn't work at first, but when it did, it got maybe 5 stations, 1 of which was in English (CNN). The room was SO HOT that I asked to have a fan, since they didn't have air conditioning - I ended up getting sick from having the fan blow on me (had no choice, otherwise, I would have sweat the entire night and been unable to sleep at all), couldn't leave the one window open, as the sound from the street was too loud. The walls were peeling, and it just felt old and poorly kept up (maybe they'll be renovating this floor in the future?!). I must say - the service was good - when I asked for a hair dryer, it was brought to me immediately, when I asked to have my tv fixed, someone came immediately. The breakfast was also pretty good. It's a beautiful hotel from the outside, and in the lobby, just not in the rooms. Too far from the town too.
