The Best Western Plus Astana Hotel is a welcomed addition to the brand’s presence in Kazakhstan. Best Western Hotels & Resorts has been welcoming guests to Kazakhstan since 2013, when the 196- bedroom Best Western Plus Atakent Park was opened.
The hotel is located in the center of Almaty, Kazakhstan’s former capital and its largest city. Almaty, the cultural and business center of not only Kazakhstan, but also Central Asia, has several international companies based in the city, as well as some of the country’s largest banks including Kazkommertsbank.
Astana is the second largest and most important city in Kazakhstan and is also a rapidly emerging business and tourism destination internationally. Astana is listed in The Top Travel Destinations Of 2017 by AMEX Essentials and is one of the 52 places to visit in 2017 by The New York Times. Astana is often referred to as a ‘futuristic city’; it is home to some of the most unusual and over-the-top buildings. The city that didn’t exist about 20 years ago now has a skyline of skyscrapers and some of the best shopping centers.
The hotel is located 14km from Astana International Airport, in a charming and lively area of the capital. It is only a short distance to administrative, business and tourist districts. The Nurzhol Boulevard, Kazakhstan Central Concert Hall, the House of Ministries and the symbol of Astana – Bayterek Monument are located just a couple of minutes away from the hotel. The hotel offers 108 stylish bedrooms, including 28 suites, all of which offer thoughtful and contemporary design, and a select number offer a breath-taking panoramic view of the city. Each room is designed with a single purpose – to establish the sense of a unique and memorable stay. Air-conditioning, free Wi-Fi, a mini bar, flat screen TV, working desk, safe and much more come as a standard in all of the guest rooms. Guests can start the day with a full breakfast – freshly prepared with locally sourced ingredients.
The hotel features two restaurants, both offering traditional Asian and European cuisine and local specialties in a comfortable and sophisticated atmosphere. For meetings and events, the hotel offers a flexible, well-equipped meeting room for up to 70 delegates and a private dining room for up to 12 delegates. Both meeting venues are equipped with high-tech equipment and offer free Wi-Fi. The private dining room features a billiard-table, allowing guests to hold a private business meeting in a relaxed atmosphere. Central location, modern equipment and professional and attentive staff make the Best Western Plus Astana Hotel the right choice for business travelers.

The Best Western Plus Astana Hotel offers numerous additional amenities such as complimentary newspapers, complimentary on-site parking, an on-site coffee shop and much more. “The response to the introduction of the Best Western Plus Atakent Park Hotel in Almaty in 2013 was tremendous, and we are delighted to continue growing our presence in Kazakhstan. We can see great potential and further expansion opportunities in the country and CIS region,” said Suzi Yoder, Senior Vice President of International Operations, Best Western Hotels & Resorts. “Now is the perfect time to introduce the Best Western brand in Kazakhstan’s capital. International events such as Astana EXPO-2017 and Astana Leisure 2017 are expected to draw approximately 3 to 4 million visitors to the city. Both fairs will play an important role in putting Astana on the map, making it an attractive destination for international travelers, and driving the demand in the region.”
