Hotel Highlight: Best Western Astana!

Esil, Akmola Province, Kazakhstan
10 Kudos
Am I the only one who thinks Best Western chains are so much nicer in other countries? LOL, all kidding aside I stayed here for a couple of days towards my last days in Kazakhstan's capital city. The hotel is located just across some government buildings and overall in a nice area also close to one of the most iconic structure in the capital. Staff are nice and also very helpful. Rooms are cozy and very clean I was definitely impressed. Room service was sorta limited during my stay though, but that was the only negative thing. I would recommend coming here for a stay since it is very close to the famous Baiterek Park and tower.
