Never before, in any country nor any other town in Kazakhstan, have we encountered a hotel where the price quoted for the double room (18,000) is in fact for one person to use a double bed. If there are two of you, there is an extra charge of 6,000, making the room very over-priced, at 24,000... for the privilege of one extra towel and 2 breakfasts. A normal single is 12,000 so taking a double for 2 people is the same as 2 singles.
We told the manageress that this was unreasonable and incorrect, but she was adamant. And we were too tired to argue any more. So we accepted the unreasonable terms and even then had to beg for the second towel to be delivered.
Also bed is hard as a gravestone.
Otherwise, reception staff speak english and tried their best. Wifi works fine.
