Clean and comfortable and the most friendly staff I met in any hotel. The dinner and breakfast were very good. Plenty of parking including for buses. short walk from the park and the city center / market.

The Green Yard is situated south of the main Karakol town, about 30-40 mins walk and around 10 mins drive. It is located in a pleasant and quiet area and if you were to walk a bit further south of the hotel, you are looking into the farmer’s fields. The staff are friendly and helpful. As this place takes the shape of a house, the rooms are understandably a bit small, but as I was a solo traveller it was sufficient. The rooms are clean, but no coffee is provided but you can purchase it at reception. They have a garden, which was a nice place to spend some time in and relax. Plenty of option for breakfast although meals have to be ordered in advance. Karakol is mainly a base to head off into the Tien Shan mountains or further south, so I would recommend the Green Yard for a

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.

Dear guest, Thank you for staying with us and sharing your experience, any constructive feed back is greatly appreciated. Every day we seek to maintain the quality standards of the hotel and it is always nice to read encouragement such as yours. We take all opinions and comments to the heart as they help us improve our services, we will check and fix all the taps for sure. We ask our guests to take off the shoes due to very poor road conditions in the area and for hygiene reasons, we also provide slippers to use inside the building( rubber ones, which are cleaned and disinfected every day) and new ones only for single use as an option. Thank you for your understanding and we do hope that you will be gracious enough to give us another try. Looking forward to welcoming you again soon! Kind regards,, Aiganysh Akbasheva, Public relations manager

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

There are some encouraging reviews of the Green Yard on TripAdvisor so I was pleased that our tour company had booked us into it for two nights. I’m sorry to say that I was rather disappointed though the owners are to be commended for their enterprise. I was expecting a hotel but the Green Yard is really just a hostel. Our room was small and lacked all the amenities one expects. Shampoo etc in little sachets really don’t work for me at all. It was all just far too basic. I was also disappointed that downstairs there really was nothing like a lounge, let alone a bar where one could have a drink and chat to members of your own tour group or with other guests. One of our group fancied a glass of wine and got absolutely nowhere. That suggestion seemed totally beyond the

Dear guest, We are very sad to hear that your expectations didn't meet perceptions. And on the other hand we are surprised to read here all your baseless comments about our hotel, you highlight here that we serve instant granule coffee, but that is not true, we have 3 professional filter coffee machines, if we could attach pictures here, we would provide them, but there is no such option here. Its also surprisingly to hear that we don't have a lounge or common area to sit with friends, because we do have not even one, we have several areas in the hole property. Regarding the wine, please make sure your friend didn't cancel the order. It also would be nice to hear the detailed disadvantages of using shampoo that we provide, because for us it is difficult to improve our services based on that kind of abstract comments. We didn't really understand why shampoo didn't work well for you. There are some guests, who ask for additional shampoo if it is not enough for them and we never refuse them. You were traveling to the third world country and we are always aiming to improve our services, but however it is hard to meet all guest's requests due to the economic, social and other reasons. We are a developing country and if you are looking for high standards, maybe our destination was not a good choice. Please remember your own responsibility toward other guests willing to visit us, when writing this kind of unfair reviews and providing unreliable information. Best regards, Aiganysh A.

This hotel is a way out of the town centre. Set in a garden the rooms are clean and quiet. Guests must remove footwear on arrival. Breakfast is excellent. However, a packed lunch provided on departure was a bit weird (cold boiled potato in mental foil).There is an interesting selection of souvenirs for sale including felt products and jams. There is much use made in the hotel of plastic bags from the Morrisons supermarket chain. They are also widely found around Karakol town.

As a return visitor to Karakol, I highly recommend the Green Yard Hotel/Guest House. It is a family run establishment and the owners spare no effort to please their guests. It is very modern, spotlessly clean and comfortable. Bathrooms are very modern, with great, hot showers; rooms have a/c and flat screen tvs with cable. A highlight is breakfast: homemade jams (with fruits from their garden), blini, bread, cake, fruit, cereal, eggs. I'd gladly stay at Green Yard over some of the larger, more institutional hotels in town.
