Hotels in Kazakhstan
The hotels in Kazakhstan are slowly beginning to improve as more people are wanting to explore this relatively un-travelled and rather intriguing country. There is a range of charming quintessential hotels and ‘homestay’ accommodation, its great to be able to enjoy authentic experiences and engage with the locals, understanding more about their daily lives and what better way than staying with them.
The accommodation in Almaty and Astana is of a higher standard than in the remote areas, in both cities there is the luxury Ritz Carlton giving you a chance to enjoy luxury hotels while spending the days exploring these fascinating cities. There is even the Sputnik Hotel, located next to the space launch facility where Yuri Gagarin and Sputnik were catapulted into space. However, as with most central Asian countries the focus is exploring the sites, enjoying the stunning scenery and get off the beaten track rather than be wowed with the hotels.
