Centrally located in the heart of Atyrau, the Reniassance is a very good hotel for business/personal visits. Most of the expats associated witht the oil majors live/frequent this hotel.
Room specs are not ultra-modern (vs the Astana Mariott) but have all the standard requirements. A bit of challenge is the access cards stop working frequently. (had to frequent the reception to almost daily - and if you were thinking: i didn't put the card with cell-phone :D
In room service is on-time but at the concierge it might take time.
All food is pricey vs rest of Atyrau fine-dining places (value for money and quality). Would be a good idear to explore the restaurants while in the city for dinners. The breakfast spread is good but almost the same everyday (though one will never run out of options). On the ground they also have a cafe,lounge/bar called The Library. Really good place to have business meetings or sit and work (just for change of place). A sports bar on the first floor is also a good visit if you feel like not going out.
Overall the Renaissance a good place to stay with all amenities within the facility and restaurants, landmarks, malls, everything at a stone's throw away.More
