The Business Hotel is a small, locally-run affair sited on picturesque Imanov Street not far from Respublika Avenue. With only seven spotless rooms spread over three floors it has the cosy feel of a private house and can be booked out in its entirety for those travelling with a group. Although the hotel professes to be decorated in a contemporary European style, in reality it’s more of a Kazakh attempt at contemporary European style, though no less charming for it. The hotel has internet access in every room and the reception promises to assist with all of your organisational needs including booking taxis, translators and transfers. The staff is very friendly, and breakfast, rustled up to order in the homely little kitchen/diner, is included in the room rate. Location-wise, the hotel is ideally placed for sampling the cafés and restaurants of the Right Bank, including several situated on Imanov Street itself.
