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...
This is a pretty decent modern and clean hotel, now part of Ramada chain. Ramada Hotel was formerly known as "Leningrad" hotel which was built in Soviet times, later it functioned as the Park Turon hotel from 2009 till 2013. Ramada hotel is an 11 floors building, located on a cross-roads of two main Tashkent avenues: Abdulla Kadiriy and Usman Yusupov. The location is slightly out of the centre and you will require a taxi to get to most sights. Hotel is in a very quiet part of Tashkent with a very easy and close access to the business districts. The nearest tube station is "Mustakillik Maydoni". There is also a very good supermarket called Korzinka.uz about 800 meters west along Abdulla Kodiriy, at the intersection with Abay.
There is park in front of the hotel that gives you a green feeling, you can walk and have a rest at this place with much pleasure. Maybe the area would seem for some guests not very interesting but taxis - official and private - are easy to find, plentiful and extremely cheap so one can travel around the city with no problem.
The lobby facilities and restaurant space are all quite contemporary, clean and well-appointed with lot of sitting space. Ramada hotel provides 120 spacious rooms equipped with comfortable furniture, nice bathrooms, executive desk, IDD phone lines and high speed internet access through both Wi-Fi and cable. Rooms are big with cosy bed. For peaceful views ask rooms facing the park. All the required amenities are available in the rooms which are well-appointed with modern touches, essentially just like any fine western hotel. Floor, carpets, curtains, linens, etc. all are fresh and new. Even room key and motion-sensing energy-efficient hallway lighting give a good impression of an excellent modern hotel. The beds are extremely soft with fluffy pillows which make your rest highly pleasurable. All rooms have attached bathrooms and the bathrooms are pretty beat & clean. You have a separate shower unit for each bathroom. Air-conditioning can be a slight an issue as the AC is centrally controlled and works at set intervals.
Wi-Fi is free and reliable. Fitness center is excellent, with weight machine, treadmills, rowing machine, free weights, etc., plus a spa, sauna and nice pool, something that you'll love it there. The hotel has an ATM facility and currency converter also which are rare to find in Tashkent.
Great staff that is very friendly and helpful out of their ways. Each staff person very courteous and displaying a helpful attitude even when they are under pressure dealing with large groups. Many do not know English but that does not deter them from trying to help you.
Breakfast is in coffee shop with lots of options to choose from, and the attentive and excellent service staff makes the best start to your day. Buffet breakfast is diverse with some Indian specialities as the hotel seems to be catering to a large number of Indian tourists. If you are departing early morning before the cafe opens, the hotel staff is gracious enough to prepare a packed box of (tasty!) sandwiches. The restaurant in the hotel specialises in Indian cuisine and is one of the best in Tashkent. Note that the wedding facility next door also serves plov in the early morning, for which men gather in great numbers, with cars spilling out of parking lots by 7 AM.
Homely atmosphere with professional approach. Recommended
