We stayed two nights at Bailanysh and were very well taken care of. It is a little sanctuary surrounded by beautiful flowers! The family are so kind and helpful with great English. The rooms and bathrooms are clean, the beds are comfortable, there are lots of places to sit and relax outside in the sun. We would stay again!!

We stayed at Bailanysh in July 2018. The rooms were ok (we didn’t need anything but beds) with a nice outside terrace covered with carpets (stylish 😊 we spent a lot of time there). Breakfast are served in common dining room and were very tasty. The owners were very friendly and helpful, arranged transport for us etc. They even let us to leave part of our equipment in their house, so we didn’t need to pack all the stuff and just picked it up couple days later when we returned from the trip. It’s in walking distance from the centre where is the marketplace and restaurants.

The family helped us a lot, specially the son who is speaking English. The bed is not as comfortable as we were expected. Bathroom and toilet are OK. Breakfast is complete and very good. Nice garden. They're currently building new rooms. Good place to stay in Karakol for a very reasonable price.
