Good place to stay when in Almaty. Located in a walking distance of shopping mall and restaurants, the place is recommended for travelers who want to make the most of their evenings after a business day. Courteous staff and had no issues in communication. Must say, the room was clean and tidy and the linen was fresh. This is what... More

The hotel is a very good central location. The room was lovely - clean - nicely done - and they were very friendly - BUT - the front desk people were not very good. They spoke very poor English - I happen to speak Russian and they preferred English (so they could get in their practice). I asked for the... More

Stayed there 3 nights for business trip. The room was comfortable, clean and the staff welcoming. No issue at check in and check out. Spacious bedroom and bathroom was a plus. So far nice place to stay, if you don't mind having to roam outside for lunch/ dinner or any distraction. Luckily there is a mall not far from the... More

Wonderful location in Almaty. Staff spoke good English. Food was very good. Probably our only complaint was that there were no ramps for rolling your luggage up the front steps or steps inside the hotel. Yes, there was staff available; just one of our observations.

Nice and quiet room, comfortable bed, large bathroom. Helpfull staff at front desk, all English-speaking. Several pubs and restaurants around. Only one negative comment : the bar was very smoky on one evening.

The hotel was nice, the staff was nice and the location was good. Our room was very nice. The only problem here was that it was unseasonably warm, and the air conditioning in the rooms was not operational. It was very hot in the room, thankfully our. Room got the morning rather than the afternoon sun, and the windows opened-... More

An old Soviet style massive building in the city center. Good location for a walk. Had a nice suit on the third floor with everything you need except for tea making possibilities. I managed to get a kettle and having tea bags the problem solved. The staff is helpful and friendly. The breakfast is good and could also have a... More

Our family visited Almaty in June 2015. We spent two nights at the Dostyk, left the city and returned for a final night. We arrived at 4:30 a.m. with bags lost on the flight. They would make it back to Almaty until after we had left the city for the first time. The hotel staff worked with KLM to get... More

5 star hotel with a nice pool, sauna. Small rooms but very modern, good wifi. Friendly staff. Lobby is a good place for businesses meetings. Ride to airport takes half hour if no traffic. Enjoyed my stay.

Stayed here 5 nights for business. Plus side is hotel well located for restaurants and other attractions. Rooms are ok but small and lacking tea and coffee making. Breakfast is rather Asian . Staff seemed demotivated and check out best described as chaotic.
