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.

Excellent choice for a weekend stay in Almaty. Located in a central, yet very quiet and peaceful area, ideal for solo travelers in terms of price, hotel facilities and personal security. The staff is very friendly and welcoming. A good spa area with numerous steams and pool area. A good variety for breakfast. Rooms are neat and though furniture is... More

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
