Due to some business connections we stayed in this hotel for a 2nd time. Even worse that before. Room itself is ok but hopelessly outdated. No water and no kettle provided. Not even starting about any amenities. Breakfast is an outright catastrophe. Pls check my "buffet" picture. Just a few pastries and that's it. No jams or any quality hams/cheese.... More

A nice hotel centrally located near attractions, shopping and restaurants. Nice size rooms with average quality amenities and furniture. The buffet breakfast was quite good. The staff was courteous, friendly and helpful.

Stayed here on business and had a seminar for few days on the 4th Floor. Excellent hotel, good, clean modern rooms that are well equipped. Wet room shower was good, hot, and a good power. Free wifi throughout and safe in room. Bar good but smoking is allowed so that can be a problem. The restaurant on the ground floor... More

I have been in this hotel just for a quick transfer from Kazakhstan to Europe. The lobby is wide and luxurious. The room is wide, comfortable and peaceful, even if the finish and the furniture are poor and economic. The bathroom also is wide with any comfort. I couldn't appreciate the breakfast. Al in all not bad.

Stayed there for a second time, very comfortable hotel, enjoyed that a lot. Nice breakfast with everything you need. The only thing to complain about - leaking shower cabin, same problem had last year in a different room, i reckon, it is a design of it which is not very clever. But, overall, recommended for business trips to Almaty, no... More

Well, my story is very short. One of my friend stayed in this hotel, so I came to visit my friend. We ordered some drinks and it took them 20 min to bring it.It was the worst room service ever. Staff isn't really good. They weren't polite.I wouldn't advice to stay there if you expect for good service.Good luck.

This is an exceptional hotel. However, during our stay the bar was closes July 3 through 17th, so made socializing a bit of an issue but there are excellent bars and restaurants nearby to fill the gap. The City of Almaty is rebuilding the sewer system in front of the hotel and there are no guard rails to a 12... More

This is a comfortable hotel to stay in while visiting the leafy Almaty. The receptionists, rooms and the health center (with its fine swimming pool) were major amenities. Also, it has a large bar and restaurant with good service and a fine Hi-Fi reception. The only drawback of the hotel was its lack of any TV channels in English, or... More

Overall a very nice hotel. Picked the suites. Good size, lots of room. Service staff were very friendly and helped us out quite a bit, especially with the language barrier. Spa was nice and relaxing, never too busy. Breakfast was average at best. Shame there was construction going on at the front of the hotel, but that wasn't the hotel's... More

After staying two times in the Dostyk hotel I can tell you the atmosphere is good. Friendly and helpful staff who support you in anything. When you arrive at the hotel through the parking, pay attention! There is no door telling you where reception is. One unmarked door leads you to the bar, and of course, the bar leads you... More
