The four-star Best Western Plus Atakent Park Hotel has 196 rooms with 23 suites and conference and meeting space to accommodate up to 500.

The hotel is part of the biggest exhibition complex in Almaty—Atakent Exhibition Centre – and has four event spaces.

Its Congress Hall can accommodate 500, while its Almaty and Astana rooms can each take up to 100 delegates. Meanwhile, the hotel’s restaurant Bastau can hold 250.

The hotel also has free wi-fi and a gym and spa and is in the centre of Almaty, close to the business and financial districts, and 30 minutes from Almaty International Airport.

Kazakhstan is part of the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS), an organisation of former republics of the Soviet Union.

As part of an effort to establish a footprint in this region, the company has also opened six Best Western branded hotels in the CIS countries of Russia, Ukraine and Moldova.

"This hotel represents a significant move forward in our development efforts in the CIS. We are both delighted and proud of the Best Western Plus Atakent Park Hotel as our entry into Kazakhstan and look forward to establishing the brand further throughout the country and region," added Best Western’s vice president of international operations Suzi Yoder.
