This hotel is situated in the residential part of town and as you drive there, it seems a really unlikely place for a hotel. However, once you reach it, it's really nice with lovely gardens and trees around the buildings. The rooms and bathrooms are a good size, lots of hot water and fairly comfortable beds. It's a little annoying having to constantly put your shoes on and then take them off to go from the building containing my bedroom to reception. Great breakfast, pancakes, porridge, eggs, fresh fruit, not a buffet but served up as soon as you sit down.
Not comfortable having to take our shoes off in a hotel. In someones house yes but not in a commercial building. It felt more like a hostel. Breakfast was served so there was little option. It tasted nice but the next course was delivered immediately after the last one before you had time to eat a couple of mouthfuls. The bed was comfortable. The tap soaked me every time I turned it on, there was off or full blast, no trickle. There was no safe in the room.
Stayed here for 2 nights with our tour group of 10 in individual rooms. Great food, service, hot water, clean ,lovely grounds with Apple trees in bloom. Excellent for exploring the area on day trips. Beautiful mountain views. Would be a good hotel anywhere in the world.
We stayed here before and after a yurt trip in the nearby Tian-Shen and really enjoyed the comforts and the hospitality. The employees are very attentive and kind. We didn't end up having dinner there in the dining room but we did have their breakfasts. The food is plentiful and very very good! You're not in the center of town (which I was actually glad for in hindsight because it's more quiet). A taxi is only 70 som and they will gladly call one for you from the front desk. I would definitely recommend this hotel if you are planning a trip to Karakol!
This is a reasonable, quiet, clean, and pleasant place to stay when in Karakol. Personally I like supporting family-run businesses rather than mega-facilities and I enjoyed the ambience at Green Yard. Also, they have a wonderful sauna available for booking -- it costs extra but is wonderful in the winter! Breakfast is FANTASTIC there! And dinner is great too, but you should know that you must pre-book. They only make enough for those who they know will be eating every night. I noticed that one person recently gave the hotel a less than excellent ranking. I think that what Green Yard offers is fantastic. While I do not believe in general in evaluating services and food in comparison with what competitors are doing/offering, I think that in this case, it is not reasonable…
