Ramada was literally the first international hotel in Astana but now its shine faded - it looks old with ancient facilities and needs urgent renovation. However staff worked fine and proved to be helpful - but indeed this is not a solution. To avoid grumbling will simply put a list of what I have noticed there: lifts are terribly slow - hate spending time waiting for it or in it;upper floors have very low hot water pressure - shower is not working properly; bathroom was reasonably clean but the bath had scratches painted over with rough smears also there was no drain plug in it; cosmetics provided but no single piece of soap; bathrobe was grey not white and has become a sort of sandpaper being washed for years - unlike towels which were soft and new; in the room the chair has broken and myself fell down on my back - tnx God the carpet was soft enough; TV set seemed to be older than Steve Job's company - could hardly watch anything on the screen while it was not receiving half of the channels. I remind you - this one is declared as a 5-star hotel...
On the upside the room was spacious with a nice view, the climate system worked well, the hotel environment was quiet in general. The breakfast choice was extensive but dull - no house speciality except for nice pastries and chunk honey.
Also there is a nice hotel option - day tarriff meaning you pay less if arriving early in the morning . This should be booked via email (not a website) or phone call.
