The iconic five-star Hotel Tojikiston, which opened in 1975 and was privatised in 2004, has been extensively upgraded in recent years and now offers exceptional luxury facilities and services as well as a warm, authentic Tajik welcome. Hotel Tojikiston is well known as the leading local player in Tajikistan’s luxury-hotel sector.
For the hotel’s management team, the top priority is to improve the hotel every day. General Manager Hokimbek Ziyoev explains, “Hotel Tojikiston is one of the biggest and oldest hotels in the country, and we are continuing to make it better through a €2.36 million (US$3 million) investment programme. We are currently completing an ambitious expansion project which will eventually include a new building behind the existing one. As part of this project, we recently opened a stunning new 40 m-by-20m swimming pool that is the biggest swimming pool in Dushanbe. We also plan to build a tennis court behind the hotel, among many other new features and services.”
Ideal location in the heart of the city
Hotel Tojikiston is ideally located across the street from picturesque Rudaki Park in the heart of Dushanbe business, cultural and entertainment attractions and just a short walk from the Palace of Nations. The hotel has eight floors and offers panoramic views of the city and surrounding snow-capped mountains.
Under dynamic new management since 2008, Hotel Tojikiston is positioning itself as a top choice for discerning international travellers. The hotel has a vast, exquisitely decorated lobby perfect for people-watching and 140 very spacious, well-equipped rooms and suites in seven different categories, from single rooms to the opulent presidential suite. Variaties and amenities include free highspeed Wi-Fi Internet access, in-room safes, laundry and dry-cleaning, room service, a world-class spa, a fitness centre, a Jacuzzi and steam room, the brand-new swimming pool, a beauty parlour, a bar, and four restaurants offering a choice of local, European and Chinese fare.
The hotel’s multilingual staff members also provide a range of extra services which include visa support, issuing foreign passports, restaurant and flight booking, airport transfers, travel arrangements and sightseeing, organisation of conferences and other events, and
much more. Hokimbek Ziyoev notes, “Our new team is very oriented towards personalised service and we aim to provide our customers with everything they are looking for. We plan to open a nightclub soon, and on the second floor of the hotel we already have small business centres for rent.”
Special services for corporate clients and business travellers
Hotel Tojikiston works with several long-term international corporate clients, including two European companies which rent its business centres, and it also serves the MICE (meetings, incentives, conferences and events) travel segment with two conference halls, one able to handle up to 100 people and the other accommodating up to 85. “All our facilities for business guests are equipped with the newest technologies, such as microphones, projectors, screens and so on,” Hokimbek Ziyoev says. The hotel’s events team welcomes the chance to organise any type of business meeting or function.
Competitive with international luxury hotel groups
Hotel Tojikiston is ranked along with global-leading luxury hotel brands operating in Tajikistan, including the Hyatt Regency Dushanbe and the Serena Hotel. In the future the competition will get even stronger when planned new Kempinski and Sheraton properties open in Dushanbe, but Hokimbek Ziyoev is not worried. He says, “Our experience and the quality of our services set us apart from the competition and make this hotel unique in Dushanbe. We have new management and new services, and each and every day we improve our services even more. We have experienced staff members who train our new employees to provide the best possible care for our guests. In addition to this, we have a very good location in the centre of the city across the street from Rudaki Park, which is a big plus for our visitors.”
Hotel Tojikiston aims to be the preferred base for international travellers in Dushanbe and to play a key role in spurring on the growth of Tajikistan’s high-potential tourism industry. Hokimbek Ziyoev says, “Hotel Tojikiston offers excellent business facilities, an ideal location, fine rooms, great restaurants and a lovely new pool. We invite travellers from all over the world to come here and see for themselves that Hotel Tajikistan has friendly, top-notch services which can compete favourably with those of any high-quality international hotel property, and we will also welcome you with authentic Tajik hospitality. We urge you to come here and discover everything that Tajikistan has to offer.”
