This is the best hotel in Oskemen, well not that great, but the best in town. To make a reservation, as for other small hotels in the country, you should avoid the hurdle of Russian travel agencies that request pre-payment by Visa card and sometimes numerous confirmations, which result in higher rates and lower quality bedrooms, you should contact the hotel directly, by phone or e-mail. It is quick, trouble free, you will get lower rates and the best rooms. Their bathroom is strange and when you want to take a shower, instead of looking for an adventure, you should ask the local staff how it works. The same with their heating system, specially in the winter. Breakfast is good and their staff is very friendly and efficient. Architecture is Russian like, but eventually you will get used to it specially when you are inside, with temperatures outside below - 40 degrees.
