ASIA MOUNTAINS 1 (BISHKEK): QUIET WITH A POOL
I found Asia Mountains 1 (no. 2 is in town) in a guidebook and then later on a website. For some reason the website I used only had a Junior Suite available – the most expensive – at $80 a night. I would recommend that you have a look at the section below and book direct and choose a room that is right for you. They had plenty of vacancies when I was there. In fact I really bought more room and amenities than I needed. Oddly they do not have seasonal prices and the swimming pool was full of snow when I was there, so consider Asia Mountains 2 during the winter. Also their Yurt, here at Asia Mountains 1, is only available during the summer.
The hotel was slightly hard to find, but they can pick you up. The main building is very nice. There is a reception desk with a fair amount of souvenirs for sale (including postcards) and things like maps and leaflets of activities across Kyrgyzstan. To the right is a massive open plan kitchen where you get your buffet breakfast food (cold, but excellent). Supposedly you can use the kitchen yourself if you wish. Further to the right is a massive open plan dinning area where you can get your coffee/tea and also use their internet for free.
My Junior Suite was in the building past the swimming pool. The room was large and well equipped. The only drawback was that the bed was poor for being a top priced room. I had a nice desk, plenty of closet space, satellite TV, remote climate control and even a place to store my luggage. There was a good fridge, electric kettle and 2 tea bags. Oddly they never replaced the tea bag I used! The bathroom, complete with a robe, was good. Descent sink and mirror to shave with. The tub was nice enough and the showers had plenty of hot water. There were 2 soap and 1 shampoo dispensers.
Overall it was completely quiet, warm and safe. The security guard had his office in my building.
The location is also quiet, despite being near the train line – I never heard a train or saw one. It is a good 10 minute walk to the heart of everything, but it’s all flat. There are several well stocked shops nearby and a sauna. There is even a large bar a stones throw away. All in all – a good stay.

Aurora Hotel Issyk-Kul: Historic and spartan hotel!
Our stay was a romantic get away, from Uzbekistan. The hotel offers only basic meals, at fixed hours, like in a pensionat. By western standards, the food was considered unacceptable, but for visitors living in Central Asia, it was satisfactory. We were both dieting, so the spartan menu was welcome. A restaurant on the beach offered a diversified menu for hungry residents. We had a pizza and wine there on our last evening.
We enjoyed our stay there, but probably would not return.
The spa treatments were basic. They included a medical check up on arrival, and on departure. The massage with a fire hose is something to be experienced.

In Osh best acomadations at the "guest-houses"
Itinerary: Choose Osh, Naryn or Issyk-Kul (lake) directions. It depends on what do you like. my e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org

Yurt Stays: Tash Rabat
I didn't stay here, just looked inside the yurts erected for tourists. They looked nice with military beds inside, so it should be warmer then sleeping on the ground like in other yurt stays.

Tamara's place: Altyn Arashan - a must!
Tamara has big rooms with about 20 beds and a kitchen to cook your own meals. Bring your own food as there are no shops whatsoever. The spring water is safe to drink, so bring only an empty bottle.
Three private pools with hot spring water that you can use all day long for free. Beautiful!!
Tamara can organize a horse and a guide for you if you want to explore the mountains on horseback.

Old wooden fairy-tale like house with all kinds of rooms and antique furniture.
You can have your meals here, but dinner is not always as good as the Lonely Planet suggests. Try the restaurants in town!
There's a sauna.
You can pitch your tent in the garden.

Sabyrbek's B&B: chepest hostel in bishkek
The hostel is a little bit messy but clean, the house is quite ramshackle but it is okay for a short stay, I mean it does maybe look good but it is clean and it has everything you need. There three rooms with bunks, dorma re separated women and men, the bathroom is small, fixtures a little rusty...but breakfast is abundant,excellent...all this for just 5-10 dollars...you will find plenty of people with whom you can swap travel stories about the silk road trip.
They have a lovely siamese cat with blue eyes, very soft and cuddly, she miaows gently and is very tender...at night she might jump on your bed and purr..so tell the owner if are allergic and close the door well...the cat name is....Nicole Kidman....!!!

International School Of Management & Business: Cheapest Accomodation in Bishkek if you get a room
Bishkek isn't Full of Budget Accomodations. I Spent a week(August 2005) and i visited all the chepeast places.
International School Of Management & Business is always full due to International meetings and the only rooms all the time available for foreigners are the Luxury! These come for 30-50 US$ which is the worst rip-off i've ver had in my life.
Better try off-season. Double room should be from 10 to 20 US$.
Good location and most rooms have private balconies

Sleeping in the Kyrgyz national dwelling - Yurta
This picture was taken in a town called Naryn, but it is possible to sleep in a yurta nearly everywhere. It may not finish up being the most comfortable night that you've ever had, but keep in mind that yurta plays a very significant role in many Kyrgyz lives. Conclusion: if you want to get a feel of Kyrgyz life and culture, stay a night in a yurta!!
I was so fascinated by those little 'houses' and once I started to ask questons about them, it came out that building a yurta, maintaining it and living there is like a whole world of itself. Very fascinating.
