Astana Int’l Hotel
The Astana International Hotel is located on a busy crossroads fro which both the Business District and the Old Town are easily accessible. Although from the outside you expect a real Soviet treat, the hotel is barely a decade old and is better suited to business travellers than culture vultures. Guests are welcome by an attentive English-speaking staff in a large lobby, which offers a 24-hour bar and a mobile phone charging station. There is never a lack of free rooms, with a total of 114 spread throughout the building. All are simply-decorated and clean. Although you must pay for it there is WiFi throughout, along with all the usual guest services such as a gym and a complimentary shuttle service to the airport.
