Sakura Guesthouse Bishkek Reviews
Sakura Guesthouse Great Place! Jul 25, 2012
Sakura guest house, location very good for trolley buses into town, which are just a short walk away at the end of the alley which is reasonably well lit for evenings. We never felt unsafe returning in the late evening. Cost was at the time of writing 900som for a double bed room, with spotless shared bathrooms(which were cleaned continuously every day) and western toilets. Three floors with mixed double rooms and dorms which at the time of writing were about 350som a night. There is free wifi, but as there are always so many people online, it does tend to have reliability issues.
They will do laundry for free and you sort and hang it up! A small kitchen with hob and decent sized fridge enable self catering. Sakura does not offer meals, just sleeping accommodation only, but that is fine as there is an excellent deli at the end of the alley that sells everything you could need without the rip off “tourista” price tagged on. Even the fruit and veg looked better than a lot of local supermarkets. Sakura also has a large garage bay (locked & Secure) so for motorbikes and bicycles alike this is a good safe place to leave your transport. There is a table and chairs affair near the kitchen ofr prepping and eating food, and a very small garden area where you can sit. The pool was empty and a bit green looking while we were there, it would have een nice to have it in a useable state, but again it is small. We stayed for 13 nights and our room was cleaned and linen changed. Just a footnote, there is an area on the ground floor under the first flight of stairs to stash your bags if you have to check out (11.00a.m.) and your flight/transport/movements are not until much later in the day. Sakura are quite happy for you to do this another bonus for many of the travellers we met who had obscene flight times in the small hours of the morning.
