Where to stay in Shymkent

The accommodations in Shymkent huddle together in the town center, set mainly in blocks built during the Soviet restoration of the city. These range from simpler options to luxury ones, with the latter traditionally overlooking the greener parts of town and offering a range of extra facilities, including spas, pools, and restaurants. Budget hotels sit in less attractive spots, with grittier but comfortable surroundings, free Wi-Fi, and good access to many of the main urban sites.
