Now, to be fare this is my first visit to Astana and I never stayed anywhere else in the city. But I do have my share of business travel and I'm just comparing my former experience in the same price range. From the main street hotel looks as a renovated sanatorium from my childhood. The corridors are enormous and the rooms are tiny though functional. Because of the size there is only shower and it is old (clean though). The bed is medium size and the mattress is ok, the pillows are not comfortable. Limited amount of channels on tv, poor air conditioner and no mosquito nets on the window (no mosquito tablets as well). Breakfast is modest (no fruits). Location is good, 15 min walk to the strand and there is a wonderful Supermarket Astana in 5 min walk which has an unbelievable counter with sweets and good variety of pre-cooked food for a very modest price.
The gym is small but there is one, I loved pool (also small, but as I had it to myself for several hours it was very cool) and decent sauna.
This hotel is average in all sense and suited for budget business travel.
