Where to stay in Ashgabat

Budget is not a word you'll hear often in Ashgabat, so be prepared for lavish accommodation options. With one of the largest selections of high-class hotels in the country, the city caters to those who desire pampering. The range of luxury places to stay in Ashgabat will leave you spoiled for choice. Travelling here on a shoestring presents more of a challenge, even the city's mid-range options cost more than your average city. A more remote location will bring the price down a little; hotels situated further from downtown offer a more affordable stay.
