Where it is better to book
So, you’re going to rest on your own in the Crimea. Tickets bought, resort selected, itinerary developed. It remains perhaps one of the most important – to choose an inexpensive but pleasant accommodation in the Crimea.
Of course you can settle in an expensive hotel “all inclusive”, which will be helpful staff, daily cleaning and other benefits. However, most tourists still prefer the private sector. Why? It is cheaper and more sincere: the atmosphere is homely, there is a common kitchen, you can communicate with neighbors and chat with owners. Among the landlords there are often people who love their country. They will always tell you something informative about the resort and its surroundings, as well as explain how to get to the most interesting places in the Crimea. In the Crimea, inexpensive housing in the private sector a lot: someone looking for the old-fashioned way on the spot, and someone prebook.
We after a number of unpleasant situations from now on always book accommodation in the private sector in the Crimea in advance. We look at the service Hotelluk. We advise this service because it works consistently with the Crimea and finds hotels and guest houses at the best price and discounts. Also, there are a lot of checked out accommodation with real reviews on the popular service Suto.ru. Check out lodging on both sites and choose what you like best. Also read our tips and cautions about how to book accommodation in the Crimea. Check out the list of new hotels in the Crimea and the top 15 hotels by the sea.
5 reasons to book accommodation in the Crimea in advance :
- Imagine how you will be in the heat (or at dusk) with luggage and, God forbid, with a child looking for accommodation, not knowing the city? And if you have a reservation, you can just give the address to the cab driver.
- You will not be handed a pig in a poke – you yourself choose the right accommodation.
- When choosing on the website you can read reviews from other tenants.
- Booking is done without intermediaries in the form of realtors and other “assistants”, the extra penny is not taken from you.
- Almost always it is cheaper – the owners make discounts on the reservation sites, as the competition is high. But if you come to the host “hot”, he will tell you the usual or inflated price – that’s the mentality. We checked more than once: the price of the owner may be inflated by almost 2 times.

Rules of safe housing reservations
People in the Crimea are special, they don’t get along with the Internet, and they live as if they were not in the 21st century. With this we have faced several times and experienced the full range of emotions. We tell you about some of the nuances of booking accommodation in the private sector in the Crimea – what you should be prepared for and how to safely rent an apartment.
Do not book accommodation on the same day. Better – a week or a month, well, in a pinch – a day. Hosts in the Crimea are irresponsible: it is quite possible that the room will not be ready for your arrival and you will be offered a more expensive.
ALWAYS call the owners and confirm the reservation. Sometimes it happens that the ad is on the site, but the owner is in another city or country, and can not take you. This happens with housing in small settlements – we had such a story happened in Olenevka and Kacha.
Check with the owner of the address of the housing – it is not always correct on the reservation site.
If you come by car, ask the host if there is parking and where it is located. For example, on the South Coast, the streets are narrow and the lots are small. Some have a private parking inside the yard, someone offers to put a car near the house on the street, and someone even in a guarded paid parking in the city, although promised to provide space – and that happens! We faced this in Alushta and Sudak.
Keep in mind that tourists from the Krasnodar region, also rest Crimeans themselves, so find housing in the private sector is more difficult.
Many cities are hilly. If you are hard to climb the hill, look for lodging on a flat area and as close to the sea as possible.
If you do decide to look for accommodation on the spot, we advise you not to take the first option that will be offered at the bus station or airport – compare a few. Trade up, especially if you’re going to stay for a long time. Walk around the area where you’d like to live and consider your options consistently. Find rental housing in the private sector is not difficult – on every second house there are signs with advertisements.
And now let’s get to the most important thing: the prices. We have made an overview of the prices for holidays in the private sector in the Crimea in the summer of 2022 and reviewed the most popular resorts of different types of housing: guest houses, apartments, rooms, mini-hotels, private houses. Search and book them without intermediaries!
A lot of people are going to the Crimea this summer, and a lot of places are already unavailable, so hurry up and book.

The guest houses are cheaper than the apartments – the hosts offer accommodation from 1.5 thousand rubles per night. There are more offers in the range of Br2,500 – Br4,000 per night. The inexpensive guest houses usually have a simple interior, a minimum of furniture and a common kitchen. The bathroom may be either private or shared. These mini-hotels are the most common housing option. They are scattered throughout the resort, and prices depend on amenities, as well as distance from the sea and city center.

Novyi Svet is a small but popular neighbor of Sudak. Rest there is more expensive than in Sudak. As with other resorts of the Crimea, the private sector is represented mainly by guesthouses, apartments and private cottages.

If you are going to live in Sevastopol it is very important where you are going to stay. If in the historic center, then to the beach will have to go by transport.

A room in a guest house closer to the beach in Lyubimovka or Uchkuevka can be found starting from 1000 rubles. A house costs from 1500 to 9000 rubles.

Summer 2022 a room in a guest house can be rented from 1200 rubles a day (near the beach), apartments – from 1300 rubles, a house with two bedrooms – from 2400 a day. Roughly the same price in Saki, a little cheaper – in villages near Evpatoria.

It is a lot of cheap guest houses – for the summer season 2022 at rent without intermediaries a room can be found from 600 to 1000 rubles. All of them are at some distance from the beach – 2, 3 or 4 lines. Those at the seaside cost from about 2000 rubles per day.

You’ll find a cheap accommodation for the peak season – July and August – in the private sector in the Crimea in 2022 if you start booking a room or an apartment in advance, even in winter. In this case you will find a double room in a house near the coast at a price of 600 rubles. A couple of weeks before the trip the choice is not as rich, and if you have no binding vacation to a specific resort, you can consider options in the range of 700 – 1000 rubles per room.
With the onset of the holiday season the chances of finding a comfortable room for less than 800 rubles increase as the number of vacationers in the Crimea drops sharply with the start of the school year.

The exception is the New Year vacations, in anticipation of which there is a temporary increase in demand for accommodation in cities with interesting excursions, including Sevastopol, Yalta, Feodosia, Sudak, Simferopol.
Lodging in the private sector of the Crimea without intermediaries
Not all tourists find it convenient to rent an apartment with private individuals. Moreover, even with this format of holiday is desirable to prepare: get a general idea of the prices in the resort and the layout of the streets. Then you can confidently bargain with the locals who meet tourists at the stations, and reject all the inconvenient options away from the sea.
Do not forget about the other risks: the verbal deal with the owner does not give any guarantees – both financial and in terms of compliance with obligations; it is problematic to find a house for a day or two on the spot – it is advantageous for owners to look for guests for a week at least; the choice of apartments for rent in the high season in a popular resort can be very limited, and prices – inflated.
To protect yourself from resort fraud intermediaries, unscrupulous owners, and various unpleasant things related to the search of accommodation on the spot, it is worth considering booking on a large online platform, which oversees the business relationship between property owners and tourist-tenants.
Booking service Ostrovok.ru provides financial security of transactions, the validity of reviews of the resort accommodation: only reviews from tourists who have used the previously made booking are allowed for publication.
Of the nearly 4500 options for accommodation in the Crimea on the private sector without intermediaries (the site owners themselves represent their real estate) has about 400 objects.

The landlords in large cities prefer to let their apartments for daily rent: there are over 150 such offers at Ostrovok.ru, with the prices starting from 800-1000 rubles per day. If your budget starts from 3000 rubles you can rent a whole house – a comfortable accommodation for a large family.

Searching for transfers in the Crimea
