Cheap accommodation for Turkmenistan: Q&A

Postby Peshwari » Sun Feb 12, 2017 8:13 pm

I do hope such a thing exists, if not I'll just have to bite the bullet and pay. Not so hot on Couchsurfing or staying with locals as I'm a solo woman. If anyone could give me some advice I would really appreciate it!

-POST EDIT, Located super cheap accom!!

There is a hotel super close to the railway station in Mary, right next to the Marshrutka station. Its a huge white building which has a green and yellow sign at the top that says "MYHMANHANA", I think its the Turkmen word for hotel? Anyways, there is a shared bathroom on one side of it (it has a sign saying "banyo") and a cellphone repair shop on the other side. The rooms themselves arent great however they are FIFTEEN MANAT per night, yes thats right. 15 manat. Just take the reception guy some cigarettes and he'll be your best friend. I'm pretty sure that the check out time is 8.30 am or so however, so just keep that in mind.

In Turkmenabat the cheap option in LP, Gurlyscky (or something like that) is a solid choice. 55 manat per night and run by a group of really lovely women. The food they serve there is fantastic and super cheap. Just check the bathrooms first.. ;)

About "cheapest" accomodation in Mary.

I have been there 1st May. Yes, this hotel exist but you had a lucky. 15 manats is cheapest price for Turkmen in 4-bed room (15 dollars for foreginers 4-bed room). So, when I was there I meet very old man and he show me price list on the wall (in Russian, I speak Russian) and there I found information about this. Normall single or double room is 35 or 45 dollars (I dont remeber). Rules and prices are simple. If Turkmen pay 20 manats, you pay 20 dollars.
So, you had a lucky.

PS. I tried negotiation but without success. I had more lucky in Syyahat Hotel Ashgabat (normal price 25 dollars after bargain - 15 dollars).

Hmmmm are we definitely talking about the same hotel?

There was no old man to be seen at mine and no price list written up in the wall either? Perhaps you are right. It did seem a little too good to be true.

Crazy how inactive this thread is. We are on a transit visa and are looking for accommodation in Ashgabat and Mary (Merv). Any suggestions?

I stayed in Syyahat Hotel (may) Gorogly St 19-21, Ashgabat, Turkmenistan. Start 25 dollars, after bargain 15 dollars BUT I asked for a poor room and it was a very poor room (but with hot water). Including breakfast.

Hello Karina,

We tried the cheapest one in Ashgabat, the name is Hotel Dayhante. Here is the link: https://www.tripadvisor.es/Hotel_Review ... vince.html

The hotel is not very clean, but it is the cheapest choice. The will ask for 50$, but finally the will accept 40$ 8(private room, two people)
