«Khorezm Palace» hotel is very nicely located, close to very picturesque green market. The hotel is probably your only option if you need to stay overnight in Urgench, but tourists are suggested to go to Khiva, which is 30-40 minutes away from the city. Besides for the rates they charge you can stay for at least two days in Khiva with much more comfort and service!
Each room is equipped with mini-bar, telephone, space TV and air-conditioning system. Rooms are still kind of new and spacious, but air-condition is not designed to cool the space and can’t cope with the summer heat. Bedsheets are so small that when moving around in your sleep you find yourself on the bare matrasses, all TV channels are only in Russian or Uzbek. No bottled water available in the hotel, but you can purchase it in the supermarket opposite the hotel.
There is open swimming pool, fitness club, comfortable bar, business center, free internet Wi-Fi, restaurant and also large and small conference halls for 100 and 12 persons.
The service is very poor, staff unmotivated and seems indifferent, and if you do not wave with a dollar bill, there is nobody in sight. WIFI works in the lobby, but it is too slow.
Outrageously overpriced! 2 stars at best, with the charges for 4-5 star hotel. Better stay in Khiva and take a cab (30 min drive) – you would get a better experience and save a lot $$$.
