Hotels & Accommodation

You can spend the night on a tapchan, the elevated wooden seating area mostly set under vines and stars, on felts with the whole family crowded around the campfire or at a 5 Star hotel with chilled swimming pool drinking Margharitas after hiking through the Pamirs for a week. Any of these options may well become the most fascinatnig memories.

Central Asia's accommodation is certainly a challenge even for the most experienced traveller. The common post-Soviet hotels are mostly steeply over-priced and sometimes ghastly serviced. On the other side family stays at very tarditional houses have become available throughout most of the region and small and reasonably furbished guesthouses have popped up in the places attracting the majority of the visitors.

Your choice remains largely a matter of recommendation and availability which is sometimes hard to co-ordinate, since apart from the top-end hotels no option has a reception in a westen sense, and bookings at some more exotic or set apart hotels are subject of somebody physically going there and making sure that there actually IS a room.

Apart from high season the individual traveller can easily travel through most of Uzbekistans well-developed guest-house system without advance hotel booking, Almaty has become easy to book although prices through an agent may be far lower and Turkmenistan remains the heaven for sun-seekers thriving for insanely well-priced 5 Star accommodation.

We appologise while most of our hotel-pages are currently still under construction. In the meantime please contact us for recommendations or proceed to the Turkmenistan hotel pages.
