Hotels in Kyrgystan
Accommodation options have mushroomed all over Kyrgyzstan. In Bishkek the visitor can pick from the whole range, from a five-star Hyatt hotel to budget options and family slays. Osh and Naryn each have a comfortable modern hotel and Karakol has everything but, including a yurt camp-cum-campsite.
The cheapest and a very congenial option is food and lodging offered in private homes in villages, and yurts on summer pastures. Homestay offers a great way for visitors to meet local Kyrgyz families and learn about their lives but there are compromises to be made. Beds are usually a pile of traditional mattresses, thickly padded with cotton or wool, laid on shyrdaks on the door (bring a sleeping bag), and privacy may be difficult to achieve.
