“Overpriced, character-less hotel”
Reviewed 14 September 2013

The room was ok, the AC was working and wifi was alright. Don't think the place is worth the near $100 per night we paid. The breakfast was a real disgrace, not something I would serve to a prisoner. They also rip you off if you buy water there, they charge 3 times more than average. Quiet location, not too far from the center.

Booked this hotel based on the TA reviews. Seem to be quite popular and it was fully booked.

I arrived in Bishkek a day earlier and they were fully booked for that night. They were kind enough to arrange for me to stay in another hotel for that night.

There is a bar/restaurant (Dragon’s Den) just across the street, and another bar about 5 minutes walk away. Some tourists sites are around 20 to 25 minutes walk. Taxi is not too expensive, usually from 80 to 100 Com per trip. The reception always call for a taxi for me and the company is reliable and uses the meter every time without fail.

Breakfast and wifi is included in the room rate. Reasonable choices for breakfast. They have a court yard where you can have tea or just chill/relax with other guests.

Considering the room rate in Bishkek, this hotel is very reasonable.

Yes: I will recommend this hotel.

I stayed for one night in one of 4 "garden rooms" in the courtyard (very nice to sit at night). My room (number 1) was clean but nothing special, TV and air conditioner did not work. Bathroom was spacey. Walls were very thin so I had to listen both to people in the next room watching an action movie in the middle of the night and also to car wash working 24/7. My friends living in rooms 3 and 4 were happier and had some good sleep. Breakfast was basic but fine. We asked the receptionist to order us a taxi to airport and had some unpleasant discussions about its price (500 som should be maximum).

Grand Hotel is a very pleasure accommodation. Location is a few minutes from downtown. The hotel is clean and nice. Price is higher but not expensive. Rooms (apartmenst) 201-208 have view to garden with a fountain. Rooms in the 3rd floor are standard but they are window to the street. Braekfast is diverse (porridge, rice pudding, eggs, fruits, müsli with jogurt, cheese and ham). But restaurant service is not quick.

Room Tip: 201 is the best choice!

I spent four nights in this hotel. Price was 150 dollars per night but the room was a really big one, I guess 80 square meters. I was in Bishkek for teaching. So I spent all my time in my room or in the court yard preparing for the next day's lecture, i.e. I used the hotel and I recommend. They are amateurs but not disturbing. And additionally, they have a Turkce speaking receptionist, Aliye.

Hotels in Bishkek are getting pricier, but this place is still reasonable. If you're staying for a week or more, it might be worth it to find an apartment that rents by the week because a week in this hotel got a little tiring. Everything was fine but nothing was great. The staff are helpful, the location is good, the breakfast is fine, the rooms were very clean, but the bed, the shower, the closet etc. - nothing was quite comfortable, especially after day 3.

Room Tip: As for a room away from the carwash next door!

I spent some nights in the Grand Hotel in Bishkek. Location is quite good, all tourist attractions and quite a number of restaurants are within easy walking distance. Reception staff speaks some English. Wireless is available, but it is a bit slow. Breakfast is all right, but don't expect anything like a buffet. You have to order what you want, but don't plan for getting anything impressive. Staff in the breakfast area will not understand English very well (if at all), so see that you ideally have some basic Russian available. Rooms offer plenty of space and are quite clean. So all in all: good value for money.

Room Tip: Ask for a room facing to the courtyard. the others are facing the main road, which will be quite lou...
