We stayed in this hotel for two nights, and were pleasantly surprised by the hotel standard. The rooms were comfortable and modern. Free wifi was working well, and the bathrooms were big. The beds were very comfortable and offered us a good night's sleep. There is a spa with saunas and a swimming pool guests can use without extra charges... More

The renovations (which preserve some of the historic features) have made this an excellent choice in Almaty, great location very close to the National Agrarian University. The free high speed internet was one of the best connections I have had anywhere in Central Asia. Have returned and liked it as much the second time as the first.

The rooms, bathrooms and beds were really good. In addition the extras in the room were top quality. More than the room was the excellent English and high competence of the staff. We had tea in the hotel but ate at several of the restaurants less than 5 min walk down the street. Convenient location for walking but traffic in... More

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.

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.

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.

The Dostyk Hotel is located in the so-called "Gold Square" covering some of the most significant quarters of the city. This is the historical center retaining and preserving the spirit of the former Alma-Ata. The Dostyk Hotel, as the architectural monument protected by law, is one of the valuable and unique symbols of such a spirit. Keeping up the best traditions and retaining the breath of the past, currently the hotel along with the fifth star has obtained a new content by having implemented under the old Dostyk roof a comfortable interior of Century XXI, with involvement of the fascination of the new design freshness and creation of the model of technological perfection. The Dostyk Hotel, which is grand and monumental on the outside, incarnates by its interior the spirit of the Eurasian steppes – boundless / limitless expanse, freedom, warmth and generosity. Thanks to plenty of a natural light, high-ceilinged and large rooms, as well as the advanced design in the style of the classic modern, the feeling of expanse, freedom, peace and relaxation, love and care for neighbors is aroused in the Hotel halls.
