Many 3-star hotels provide very comfortable accommodation in quiet and beautiful places in the city. In recent years, many cozy hostels and guesthouses have opened in the capital, where you can feel at home.

Chon Kemin

Chon Kemin is a beautiful valley located a 2-hour drive from the capital. Here in small villages, you can find friendly families where you can spend quality time with your family and learn about their way of life. If you want to be close to nature, you should stay at the Kemin Guesthouse, located in the village of Tar-Suu, next to the Kalmak Ashu gorge.

Issyk Kul Lake

Issyk Kul has been and remains an accessible and favorite place for travelers from all over the world. The region has a rich choice of accommodation, from yurt camps to large comfortable hotels. If you’re on a tight budget, yurt camps on the south shore of the lake, like Almaluu or Bel Tam, are a great way to meet other travelers and gain valuable insight into local traditions and culture. Emily’s guesthouse in Bokonbaevo and U Pavla Guesthouse in Tamga will offer you comfortable accommodation. They can prepare a delicious dinner and give you recommendations on what to see in their area. If you want a bit of luxury and privacy, hotels in Karakol and Cholpon Ata offer all modern conveniences at a higher but reasonable price.

Naryn region

In Son Kul Lake and Tash Rabat, you have the opportunity to stay in an authentic Kyrgyz yurt to experience the nomadic life in the camps as Muras and Nazira. Kyrgyz traditionally sleep on mattresses laid on the ground. However, in modern yurt camps, beds are offered for a comfortable stay. Yurts are heated at night because it can be cold there, even in the summertime. Some yurt camps have a shower and a sauna to use during the stay for an additional fee.

In Naryn and Kochkor, you can find many guesthouses and just a few hotels for a reasonable price.
