If you are planning a trip to Ust-Kamenogorsk, there is a wide choice of fine Ust-Kamenogorsk Hotels. Although the city itself is not a common tourist destination, the hotels treat their guests very well. Here are some places you can choose to stop at:
Shiny River is a luxurious 4-star hotel, situated in Ust-Kamenogorsk city center, right next to the river of Ulba. It is spread on 6 floors and offers more than 70 rooms with different sizes. Prices vary from $75 to $270. The hotel has 2 restaurants and 2 bars (sport and lobby), a spa saloon and a sauna. The only disadvantage is the non-guarded car park. Shiny River is the most expensive hotel in the city.
Smaller in size, but more luxurious (yet not so expensive), is Beybars. Located right next to the Irtysh River, in the forest park zone just few minutes away from the center of the city, this 5-star hotel offers a memorable high-class experience. It has 15 luxury apartments in the price range of $80 to $160. Each of them consists of a bedroom, living room, 2 bathrooms and all possible extras you can think of. A sauna and guarded car park are included.
If you’re on a tight budget, hotel Ust-Kamenogorsk (they also call it Oskemen) is the right place to stay at. It’s a 3-star hotel, not so luxurious as the previous two, but still very friendly. It offers a wide variety of room choices at affordable prices, starting from $15 (yes it’s true) to $120 per night. The hotel has a restaurant and 2 cafés, with the restaurant offering live musical performances every night.
What’s interesting about this one is that it isn’t actually a real hotel – instead, it’s a company offering hotel services, but accommodating its guests in apartments all around the city. What’s even more interesting is that recently this type of service became very popular among tourists and businessmen. Prices are very competitive too, starting at $20 and up to $105, depending on the size and condition of the apartment.
Finally, if you’re looking for something calm and quiet, you can stay at the Semey Hotel. This is a small place, located in a silent region, close to the center of the city. Every room is decorated in a different style, so if you want to get something unique, you have 21 different rooms to choose from. Prices range from $45 to $85. A sauna and restaurant are included.
