Located in the heart of Bukhara next to Lyabi Hovuz complex, family run Amelia boutique hotel provides its guests with comfortable accommodation and great service. Fully air conditioned and constructed in national style “Amelia Boutique Hotel” was Jewish merchant's house which was built in 19th century and located near Synagogue (Jewish temple). A beautiful wooden carved door is an entrance into this unique and extraordinary house. Pleasant accommodation and friendly staff ensure you will have a comfortable stay with a plenty to see and to do.
Owner is a dynamic young man with a customer oriented attitude - he takes care of guests. Position of the hotel is very near to the centre, just five minutes away, the entrance is in a hidden narrow off-side road, but near a main road; which combines some isolation with not being far away - you will never miss your way home and everything is within walking distance: wonderful stores, historic sites, restaurants, etc.
In general thus is a charming hotel, with extremely friendly and happy staff and management. The ground floor suite is decorated with red murals featuring pink elephants, but this is very tastefully done. Also, the breakfast/dining room is a delight all by itself.

Breakfast is varied and good and they serve it cheerfully. Сustomized eggs are prepared upon request. The variety of food changes on a daily basis and presented so beautifully. Complimentary tea and coffee is delivered to your room or roof terrace at any time of the day. The breakfast room is just down stairs, has the original painted walls and absolutely charming - a real strong point to the hotel. Each piece in the hotel made by hand by well-known workers and painters from Uzbekistan. The house also has a traditional yard with beautifully carved tall columns and charming "ayvan", where during summer evenings Uzbek, Tajik, Russian or vegetarian cooking is arranged. You’ll be also in easy walking distance to restaurants. Near the hotel there is Minzifa restaurant and they have good food, but they are often overbooked. Bella Italia, in the opposite direction, also has good food. Go for a kebab at the small family run restaurant in the round building in front of the hotel.
Facilities of Amelia Boutique Hotel
The family-run owned and managed boutique hotel “Amelia” offers a combination of traditional Bukharian style and atmosphere, with modern conveniences and personal attentive care. The English-speaking staff is eager to help 24-hours a day. Staff is helpful, and they can obtain train or plane tickets for you. Wi-Fi is available but costs USD10 per day, so might be cheaper to use Internet kiosks. Sometimes Wi-Fi is very slow and you can have a problem with loading even standard webpages. They can give you helpful advice on catching a shared taxi. Try to avoid taking a taxi from directly outside the hotel – the drivers there make their living off unsuspecting tourists and tend to charge more than average local rates.
Laundry services are cheaper than you can imagine and turn-around is quick. The hotel has also a comfortable terrace/ rooftop that is perfect to cool off on the evening with some green tea and watch the sunset over the ancient city.
But above all, it's the atmosphere that makes this boutique hotel a truly unique experience, merit of a very kind and polite staff, always trying to be helpful and make you feel comfortable, like at your own home.
The staff is amazing and helpful, concerned with your comfort and very attentive. You can really feel the effort the staff is putting every day in this activity!
Small, very nice and clean hotel in an old converted merchant house. Large rooms, comfy beds. Staff goes not one, but five extra miles to make you happy. Excellent Uzbek breakfast served in beautiful authentic 17th century dining room. Highly recommended!
