Sofitel Ashgabat Oguzkent Hotel
Effortlessly Ashgabat's best hotel, this gleaming palace is perhaps Central Asia's single most impressive place to stay...
Ak Altyn Hotel
The golden-rust facade of this 109-room hotel a short distance to the west of downtown suggests an era of bygone splendour, and that’s just what you get here, though the interior is somewhat more impressive than the exterior suggests...
This eccentric homestay is located in a quiet neighbourhood a short taxi ride from town. The rooms are functional and clean, with constant hot water and decent shared toilets. The family also keeps pigeons...
This small hotel doesn't get much attention, but the rooms are surprisingly good value, especially for the solo traveller. The very large lux room has a sofa, TV and separate bedroom. The single room is likewise comfortable and well appointed...
Grand Turkmen Hotel
Blessed with a fantastic location, the Grand Turkmen is a great choice. The standard rooms are in good shape (if perhaps a little small for the price) and all have balconies...
Hotel Amu Darya
Despite a recent renovation this place opposite the station has re-emerged looking surprisingly similar to how it did before it went under the knife...
Offering the best value in the city at this price, the Hotel Aziya's rooms are enormous and come complete with flat-screen TV, good Turkmen carpets and eye-wateringly tasteless furniture...
The newest hotel in Turkmenbashi is this flashy white marble number overlooking the naval base and the Caspian. The rooms are good and of international business standard, though some are a little on the small side...
This centrally located Soviet dinosaur was largely renovated in 2011, and is run by unbelievably friendly staff. Rooms are now absolutely fine and have balconies and hot water, even though the bathrooms are still very basic...
This tired old Soviet joint downstairs has surprisingly good accommodation upstairs and enjoys a great location...
This friendly yet unpronounceable hotel is an old Soviet-era place and the cheapest option in town. The rooms are large apartments with a living room, a couple of bedrooms, and rather awful bathrooms, though there’s usually hot water...
Any foreigner who stays at this Soviet-era hotel needs to produce a certificate from Turkmenbaşybank proving that your Manats were purchased there. The rooms aren’t bad value, though...
Ashgabat’s old Soviet standby has recently been given a makeover, and from its exterior it looks like any other modern Ashgabat building...
This Soviet-era hotel is your standard pile of neglected concrete, though the 'lux' rooms (of which there's just one on each floor) are spacious and have passable bathrooms, fridges and TVs...
Rather remotely located, this hulking Soviet-era place isn’t a bad deal if you’re looking for a cheap-but-official bed. Rooms come in varying states of decay and each seems to have its own wallpaper pattern. The bathrooms are not a highlight...
The Turkmenabat offers comfortable rooms, each with high ceilings, a fridge, comfy beds and a tiny TV. There is a pleasant bar and a good restaurant (the Oguzhan ).
A little overpriced, but has an excellent location near the Arch of Neutrality. The rooms are unexciting and a little cramped, but the newly renovated bathrooms are good and the place is clean. Amenities include a Turkish bath in the basement.
Dashogus’ newest hotel is a white-tile construction on the western side of town. Rooms are rather cramped but have been repainted and have good bathrooms, TVs and fridges. Try to get a room away from the atrium, which can be loud in the evenings.
This friendly and modern option in the centre of town is pricey for what it is, but has English-speaking staff, and comfortable, clean and spacious rooms with good bathrooms and little seating areas by the windows...
Following a very fancy transformation, the Nusay is now Ashgabat's best-value luxury option...
The lobby at Ashgabat’s top hotel says it all – the blur of gold, crystal and marble is enough to make even Donatella Versace exclaim ‘too much!’ – but if you want to impress and can't quite pay Sofitel prices, this place is for you...
The rooms here are clean, spacious and have bathrooms with hot water – a luxury in a small Turkmen town. There’s a small chaikhana here too, offering basic breakfasts and hot meals (order in advance). Staff don't speak English, but are very friendly.
