During my engagement in Atyrau and shift work 28/28, company provided me standard room in "Renaissance" hotel in the first trips. Later moved to Old Chagala, apartments.
In 2014, to reduce costs, they move me to standard room.
Apartments are comfortable for long term stay,have living room, sleeping room, basic kitchen, dining room and bathroom. Internet, safe and satellite channels available. Entrance is like in any building. No receptionist, no guards and control - only main door key.
Standard rooms are really shabby, small and lightening is poor.
In winter tome rooms are very cold, no any additional heat, only standard radiator beside badly sealing window.
Also had meals in hotel restaurant which is in same building as standard rooms.
Restaurant and food are good for my taste.More
