We spent 2 nights at this hotel and really enjoyed our stay. We chose this hotel because it offered the opportunity to stay in the home of a traditional bukharian merchant, with all the associated traditional architecture and decor.
The bedrooms are off a series of interconnected courtyards and all the ones I saw appeared to be very spacious. The rooms had twin beds (most have twin beds rather than doubles), table with chairs, mini-bar/fridge, small wardrobe, air con and are equipped with satelite tv. It was also spotlessly clean which wasn't the case with every hotel we stayed in Uzbekistan. The main selling point though is the traditional bright coloured paintings on all the walls, very unique. The bathrooms in this hotel were the best we encounterd in Uzbekistan, they were very spacious, had corner baths with shower, a large sink/vanity unit and toilet. The hotel is on the edge of Lyabi Hauz, an easy walk to most of the tourist sites and close to all the restaurants recommended in our guide book. The breakfast was good, either pancakes or eggs cooked to order, along with a buffet selection of bread, fruit, juice, tea/coffee and biscuits. Each evening they ask you what time you'd like breakfast the next day and they expect you to stick to it, we were chased up one morning for being 15 minutes late!
The main disadvantage of this hotel is it's used by several tour companies, this can result in feeling a little sidelined as the staff rush around to cater to the tour group. Also we booked about 3 weeks in advance and had initally wanted to stay a 3rd night, the booking was initally accepted and then reduced to 2 nights, admittedly within a couple of hours, to allow them to cater for a tour group that had just booked.
