Quite nice, rather strange location, aloof staff. ”
Kazakh staff, particularly the young woman at check-in, were not exactly friendly or helpful. I had prepaid and despite explanations in English, Russian, and Kazakh she did not seem convinced. The room was on the small side, but perfectly fine, one of the strangest shower/toilet arrangements I have ever encountered, and the hot water wasn't exactly working. Breakfast staff and check-out were much more amiable, overall a good experience, not the best, but certainly not the worst.
