It has been ten years since I stayed here at the "International" There are fewer restaurants and shops in the place today,but the service and security are still first rate. Try to get a room on the back side "Park side" as the front rooms can get very warm even with AC in the summer. The bar is no bargain, the bar menu needs to reflect they don't have Baltica beer (how is that possible?) but the bar menue is good.
Breakfast is included with your stay and is very good. Beware of even these melons at breakfast as western stomach may have issues with them which is a shame because they are so good.
There is a heavy security aspect at the entrance to the hotel grounds (local police) they check bags, but tend to leave non Uzbeks alone. There is a beautiful Japanese garden in the back of the hotel that is a must see.
As I was there at the end of Ramadan, there were at least 5-6 bridal parties getting pictures done starting about 16:00 everyday for the entire week I was there in the lobby, bar and up on the mezzanine. I guess no one marries during Ramadan. Quite surreal to be sitting in the lobby with all that going on around you. Internet is free in the lobby (wifi), kind of a pain to shuffle down to check email. You can pay $20 a day for in room Internet, but it's not wifi.
I highly recommend trying the Metro right out front,1500 som, very clean and each station is different, maps at concierge desk. There are several small shops across the street who are used to dealing with foreigners for cigarettes, beer and other small items. Over all the place is still the best in town.
