Great location and service: my stay at the Dostyk Hotel is a good memory. After arriving at Almaty airport and waiting for my bags (the last ones to appear), I met the hotel's representative waiting patiently. He and the driver brought me back to The Dostyk. Although a little dated, it's still a great value. My first good impression was...

I guess this will be my last visit this hotel. One more time I understood if you have best property it does not mean you will get good services. As a product its really good hotel. But if you have very bad management you never make guest happy. Skill of Dostyk Hotel management far from guest oriented management.

I had a happy, relaxed time staying at the Dostyk Hotel and felt welcomed and well looked after by the staff. The hotel is in an ideal spot to leave by foot and explore. The breakfast spread had plenty to offer, and as a vegan, I ate well. My room was luxurious and the bed so comfortable that I slept...

I was impressed by the style and refurbished design of this hotel, which has been around for a long time. The lobby is spacious with comfortable sofas. Front desk staff friendly and efficient. They gave me the wifi pw and explained about the fitness club and indoor swimming pool at check-in, no need to hunt for these things are settling...

Nice and clean room. All you need is available but mini-bar is a bit overpriced, to my taste. Spacious bathroom. Breakfast is simple but quite OK. I arrived late in the evening when the restaurant was already closed. There's a bar for late snacks/drinks but it's a 100% smoking area.If you don't smoke - you may feel uncomfortable there.

The location is perfect, the service is responsive and kind, the rooms are clean and the breakfast is wonderful. The walls are a bit thin, but what's more important is the pool with warm water, dry and wet saunas, gym and hot tub, making the stay particularly enjoyable, especially in the winter.

I had a very pleasant experience at this hotel. Here are the pros: spacious, modern, clean, quiet room--very friendly and helpful staff--good central location--good AC--very comfortable bed--very nice outdoor pool that is covered--excellent gym facilities with top of the line cardio and weight equipment--plentiful delicious breakfast. Here is the con: slow, intermittent wifi. The pros far outweigh the one con.

A really interesting hotel: stayed on the fourth floor in a large room with bath, separate and good shower, and all the usual things you'd expect from a 4 star hotel although there were no in room tea or coffee type facilities. Service was excellent, lobby and other areas unexpectedly good and breakfast was excellent.

I give 3 star to this hotel: - Crew are responsive & helpful - I was not going to breakfast, since the dining hall environment is too much sad! Too orange! And mute!!! No cafe machine or proper cafe! - No kettle in the room - Shower floor is covered by piece of wood, so the water does not sink...

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.
