The architecture of the Tashkent Metro is one of the most beautiful in the world, and it is a traditional destination for tourists and guests...
Ichan Qala is located is the newer part of town though there is actually nothing to be seen in the immediate vicinity. However, is is close enough to the metro system (an attraction in itself!) and a taxi ride rarely costs more than a couple of dollars. The location is on a quieter street, and the nearest Metro station is a good 20 minute walk away. On the other side, there is no noise problems - the place is dead silent. There is nothing particularly interesting in the vicinity of the hotel. One can be recommended the B&B Coffee House nearby for food/coffee, and there are a few other dining options with it on Rustaveli street.
The decor of the hotel is very nice, it gives the place character. The entrance is impressive and you feel the history with its exterior design. The entire hotel is finished to a very high standard.
The hotel is not overcrowded, and most of the facilities around the complex have only rare visitors, even the swimming pool. There are several different buildings with lovely patios. Rooms and rooms off the chandeliered entry hall - full gourmet kitchen, dining room for a bazillion, gigantic den downstairs with pool table and huge TV.
The rooms are big, spotlessly clean and with comfy beds (on the hard side, though), duvets and pillows. The beds and furnishings are very high quality. The bathroom is very modern and has even underfloor heating. Royal Suite has a den, mirrored closets, canopied bed, two-person whirlpool bath with overhead TV in a gigantic bathroom.
There is both an indoor and outdoor pool as well! There is also a courtyard area where you can order drinks, and a mister to help cool you off when it's very hot. Restaurant is very nice with a fancy decor, and thus is a bit pricey.
They provide laundry service, but the price is unbelievably high. It is not acceptable to charge 10USD per piece and 7 for just ironing!
The hotel's dining room is elegant with superb service. Breakfast is pretty mediocre - only a few hot items like hard-boiled eggs and fried bread, and some stale pastries.
Service is attentative and professional.
This is a great hotel with a luxurious feel, but at a great price. A perfect example of modest boutique hotel.
