Teskey Guest house- Karakol
44 Asanalieva Street
This lovely guest house was a great find through the Tourist Info office in Karakol when we arrived on Saturday lunchtime. The CBT office was sort of closed. Takai speaks excellent English. The location is good for the town centre, about a 10minute walk or a two minute walk and you can pick up a mini bus (102) for 7com pp to the town centre. It has a large shower room, with a separate porcelain squat, which is pretty clean. We paid at the time of writing, 1000 com for a double room, which included breakfast. Lunch and dinner are 300cm extra if you need them. Breakfast consists of either “Real Porridge” as we know it in Europe with Chai and various jams, or a rather thick pancake which you can put jams or spreads on. Not very imaginative but adequate. The rooms are clean and beds were comfortable enough. We were able to get some much needed washing done, but this was a little expensive and we found out afterwards that they would have been ok with us doing our own and hanging it out(doh!).
They do fab tours (inc. in my blog) to Jeti Oguz which we shared the people carrier with six other tourists we got together with, that brought the price for a car down from 3000com to 900com pp. this also inc lunch. As we were aware that our fitness was not at our fellow travellers level, Takai arranged for his dad to come with us and tailored the route so we could do some with our fellow travellers and they continued at a pace that suited them and we had a pace that suited us. What I am trying to say is…if you think you are not fit enough for some of the tours on offer, you will be able to enjoy the sights as Takai will make sure you can do it at your own pace(not Royal Marine pace). Takai is also very knowledgeable about Kyrgyzstan; we were able to discuss our needs for after our departure and got sound advice. Recommended to stay here, yes helped by the lovely garden and outdoor eating area.
