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...

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...

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.

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...

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...

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...

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.
