Stayed at this small hotel during a business trip. This is a privately owned, newer hotel. It is located off Gorki Street, on a small alley right next to Gorki. The hotel staff was absolutely fabulous and always very cheerful and helpful. They were able to arrange taxis, locate good restaurants, find a shipping company for me, arrange a breakfast for a very early morning departure, and more. The room fee also includes breakfast each morning. For breakfast, you can expect dairy products like yoghurt, kefir, milk, cheese, sour cream, and butter. The main foods served were scramble eggs, cold sausage, corn flakes, muselia, small soft bisquits stuffed with vegetables, cakes, platters of fresh vegetables such as cucumbers and tomatoes, Russian salads, juices, white and rye break, hard boiled eggs, coffee, and green or black tea. The food was more than adequate and the dining room is well lighted, clean, and friendly. The sleeping rooms are well laid out and comfortable. I was especially please with the large desk space and reading lights for the bed. The rooms have small refrigerators, cable TV with English BBC and CNN International news, along with about 50 other Russian language channels. Rooms are cooled with ductless air conditioner units, and heated with both central heat and electric portable heaters. The floor in the bathroom is also heated. The bed was very comfortable and queen size mattresses are available. There was plenty of storage space in open shelves below the desk, and also large closets with sliding doors. Clothes racks and hangers are provided. I stayed on the top, 3rd floor, with a room facing away from Gorki and the alley. It was relatively quiet, except the 6 am call to prayer from the nearby mosque, which I actually came to enjoy. The walls are thick enough to prevent much noise transmission from the room next door. Each room comes with a phone, and the WiFi was free and had a strong signal on the top floor! Be advised that there can be power outages in Bishkek, but none lasted more than about one hour. The bathroom comes with both a bathtub and shower, and fresh towels and washcloths were provided regularly, along with good room service. The rooms are non-smoking and were a pleasure to be odor free! Finally, it should be mentioned that the kitchen can serve both snacks, lunch, and dinner, on special requested. They will allow you to access the dining room if you want to get a cup of tea or eat your own food from the grocery store nearby.
The room has aircon that workes quite nice. TV has a lot of channels, even some in English and Korean. Bathroom is very comfortable, shower has a lot of power behind it. Beds are comfortable. The staff helped me with finding a good car to rent, which ended up saving me about $300 dollars! Would definitly go here again if I would be in the area!
I had the experience of staying in this hotel on two different occasion while traveling in Kyrgyzstan. This was a most pleasant and comfortable place, and the staff went out of their way to make me welcome. The staff was very friendly and cordial.
Very nice place. Clean with new room furniture. Softer beds – my back says thank you! Breakfast more suited to Western palate. Would stay here again. BTW -reception staff speak English.
“Clean and friendly”
