Best hotels in Kazakhstan

Ok, so it’s not going to be a huge money spinner but Wikipedia lists Kazakstan as being in Central Asia so I’ve added it to my www.hotelbuddy.asia site so that you can now find the best hotel deals in Kazakhstan.

One problem being that my site is in English only and I’m not sure how many of the locals speak English … but perhaps English-speaking foreign travellers will find it useful.

Or perhaps the links to Tajikistan Hotels or Uzbekistan Hotels will be of more help.

Which brings up the issue of the domainance of English – or the presumption by many of those of us that speak it – that everyone else does too. Certainly I’ve often (to my shame) relied on the friendly help of English speaking natives when travelling rather than trying to speak their language – or some other immediary language we both share.

Many larger hotel sites do supply transalations for other languages but I often wonder how complete and therefore how useful they are.
