We spent two nights on trip round the country. It's not all that easy to find (our driver had to ask twice) but it's quiet. Not very close to the centre but if you have transport that's no problem. The room was more than adequate, spotless, with a separate part with a writing desk leading to the bathroom.
The breakfast was amazing. Unless you're a big eater, it's almost impossible to even taste everything on offer, and the jams..., mmm, the jams!
All in all, if you want a comfortable quiet place (especially after trekking or yurt stays), then this is it.

The green yard hotel is as good as it gets in Karakol. The staff is pleasant and friendly, the breakfast was superb, and they were very accommodating. My only complaint is the distance form the center but a short taxi ride is nothing to fret about. The flower gardens are beautiful in summer and the inside is very clean and modern for Kyrgyzstan. I would recommend this hotel if you are not traveling on a budget.

Great mini-hotel.So warm and cosy. The staff reflects hospitality of Kyrgyz people. Tea is serving when every tourist enter the hotel. It has an interesting interior with national Kyrgyz souvenirs etc. Suggest to tourist who are planning to have a trip to Karakol.

The green yard is a little gem down an alley full of otherwise drab soviet area homes. Don't let the surroundings scare you, you will be well taken care of by the amazing staff here. Run by a young couple, we only met the girl not her husband, but the the English spoken here was enough to get by and get what you need. The morning breakfast spreads are impressive and e homemade jams are simply amazing. Enjoy.

The Green Yard is an excellent guest house, and well worth the little effort it takes to find it (as it is in a residential area, down a small side-road). The rooms are spacious, well designed, newly decorated and kept spotlessly clean; and the en-suite bathrooms are also quite large, with plenty of hot water. The breakfast is very good and the staff are friendly and attentive, and the owner and manager have good English. The room rates are also very reasonable and I think it is easily the best place to stay in Karakol. I certainly hope to stay there again on my next trip in 2013.

As others have said, the Green Yard Hotel is very basic and more like a hostel than a hotel. If your room is in one of the outer buildings it is quite a trek to reception and the breakfast room. I found the hotel’s rule about the removal of footwear annoying and, frankly, pretentious. It is particularly inconvenient if your room is in an outer building. What is the hotel protecting? The priceless Persian rugs!

The rooms are OK but average. The same can be said of the breakfast.

The hotel is situated in a suburban part of town, not easy to find but fortunately we were driven there. The owners are most welcoming but do expect you to remove your shoes and wear slippers throughout the hotel. The rooms are comfortable, clean and quiet at night although dogs were barking early in the morning. Breakfast is good and plentiful although choice is a bit limited. Has a nice bar area to relax in at night.

Our group stayed in this hotel just for one night. This is a comfortable hotel with renovated rooms and with a good wi-fi. Excellent service and very good breakfast! The hotel is divided in several “houses” with a common space and rooms. This is a no shoes hotel.

This hotel is more of a guest house than a hotel. There are a few buildings but each one feels like you're in someone's house. They are very strict about no shoes inside the building.

I'm not sure what it is about the beds but my sleep was amazing. The shower was a bit weird because it's so high, I was barely able to reach it to adjust the angle. The hooks to hang clothes are also ridiculously high too.

The breakfast is table service with eggs, porridge, fruits, breads, yogurt, jams, honey, coffee, etc. Variety and quantity of food doesn't seem to be an issue in Kyrgyzstan and it's no different here.

The downside is the location. It's not walking distance to any conveniences.
