I stayed in Dostyk last week during a 2 day business trip in Almaty. I was picked up at the airport by the hotel's van. Unfortunately none of the people spoke English but it all worked out well at the end. I arrived at the hotel quite late and the reception staff was very helpful and pleasant and my check... More

Grand entrance is impressive in what I eventually classify as an expensive but more than decent business hotel, I do feel however that their prices are way over the top and this has caused me to rate the hotel as average. I couldn't really complain about the room as it has everything you would expect in a modern hotel including... More

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 Room itself is ok but hopelessly outdated.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
