10/10 Exceptional

Clean and smoke free! Experience
Check in was good except the clerk insisted for my drivers license, despite picture attached to my credit card.

4/10 Fair

Very Disappointing / Poor Service
Lotus BLU did not live up to the positive rating I saw when booked. The room smelled of vaping, which made us nervous because the front desk was very adamant about no smoking in the room. Pillows were very flat and linens did not appear well cleaned. Front desk service was terrible - very awkward check-in, offered air spray when we mentioned room smell, and despite arranging a late checkout ahead of time called us at 11:45am claiming it was noon and we needed to leave. Um, we still had 15 minutes buddy. Ignore the low price here and look elsewhere.

Fairly decent hotel. Cold A/C, large clean room. Really great location and price can't be beat! Below average, unhelpful customer service. Want a late checkout, say and hour? Forget about it. It'll cost you $20 per hour. Overall, we would consider this again as there are two subway stops close by, the neighborhood is nice, there are several bodegas, bagel joints and a grocery store within easy walking distance.

Girls Weekend Trip
Had a girls weekend trip, and this was not a bad place to stay. The room was spacious, there was a tv, and the bed was comfortable. Wish there was a microwave in the room, and there wasn’t a tub, only a shower. But the staff was friendly, there is a Walgreens within walking distance, a subway and bus station a few blocks down, and even walking back to the hotel at 4am we felt totally safe, and it was just us two women. The hotel was quiet, and if you feel like having a night in there are TONS of food options within walking distance or just a short doordash request away. For the price I can’t complain.

2/10 Poor

Welcome to the Hotel Transylvania!
Only in Kazakstan would this place rate an 8.0! Someone is inflating their rating. A great place to stay if you want that North Korean Prison camp experience. I am not even sure the sheets were clean when i checked in. There was no soap in the bathroom. The shower looked like it had been just used and not wiped down. The towels were like what you buy for automotive rags in Costco in the giant bag. I am sure it does a steady trade in hookers and johns. Avoid this crap box at all costs. The bullet proof glass at reception is your first sign you have checked into the Hotel Transylvania.
