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... More

Located in the heart of Almaty, the Dostyk is beautiful, modern, and has very spacious rooms and toilets. It is very comfortable and has good facilities, all the amenities that one would expect from a business hotel. It is however quite expensive.

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.

Good place to stay when in Almaty.
