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...
Shodlik Palace Hotel located in the prime central area of Tashkent yet enjoys a quiet location being surrounded by a park, and is one of the much preferred stopovers for tourists on their tour to Tashkent. The location of the hotel is reasonably convenient, although Tashkent does not have a tourist area as such. The nearest Metro station is Pakhtakor and that is a great way to get around. Hotel is just off of the main shopping street and near the football stadium and a short drive to the international airport.
The hotel is nice, from what appears to be a thoroughly refurbished Soviet-era hotel. The hotel is managed by an international Italian hotel chain "Domina Hotels and Resorts". Good standards of services, modern design, nice atmosphere and moderate prices make the hotel a good choice to stay. Pleasant staff willing to help, wireless internet on the 7th floor and in the lobby, peace and tranquillity from balconies overlooking the park, good breakfast, comfortable beds, clean rooms, and the sounds of nature are part of the peaceful experience.
The hotel is clean, air conditioned and the rooms are with large and comfortable. 107 rooms at this 9 floor hotel are all elegantly done up, come with a plethora of services and facilities to be found in most good hotels. Most of the rooms have a balcony with the nice view to the park. A bidet and a hairdryer are provided in the bathrooms. The bathroom is large, a double basin with lot of space to put your things. Spotless clean. Rooms has been evidently renovated. All electric appliances are up to modern standards. The furniture is in very good condition, with a touch of modern style. The rooms with the stadium view are really quiet and beautiful. Floor to ceiling windows with huge balcony are very big plus.
This hotel features a sauna (10$ per person) and a fitness centre on the second floor. A massage service is also available.
Buffet breakfast served from 07:00 to 10.00 a.m. on weekdays and from 07:00 to 11:00 a.m. on weekends. Breakfast menu is exactly the same every day for hot choices and leaves some room for improvement. The breakfast is typical of others that you would experience in Uzbekistan: fruit, bread, continental meat and cheese, with local cereals, plain yoghurt, tea and coffee. Early breakfast and room service is available upon request.
Good dining facilities with "La Strada" Restaurant and "Hemingway" Bar. "La Strada" - the multi cuisine Restaurant with slight shift towards Mediterranean cuisine, offers traditional Uzbek dishes as well as contemporary Mediterranean cuisine prepared with fresh ingredients and served elegantly. Love piano music played every evening. The Hemingway bar serves cocktails and choicest liquor. The bar is adjacent to the terrace which is the perfect place to idle over a glass of evening drink. Food is plentiful and good at the restaurant.
The staff are very nice and cooperative but a little slow. Of course some staff is undertrained but don't take it as a personal offense, they just don't know all that and trying accommodate you by the best Uzbek standards and traditions they know.
Overall a good hotel that could probably do with a makeover as it has a rather dated look and feel about it. Very reasonable prices for a mid-range hotel. Recommended.
