We had wanted to stay at the Malika Prime, but it was full of tour groups (the whole of Uzbekistan was full of groups when we were there in September). Our travel agency booked us here instead. The staff are very helpful and attentive, and speak excellent English. Ask them for good exchange rates and they'll be able to help. Room was fine, very clean, with comfortable beds and a large bathroom. There was no problem with the hot water supply and no leaks in the bathroom. It was indeed nice to be able to sit in the courtyard area and have a coffee (or a cold drink from the next-door shop).
Breakfast was decent -- pancakes, bread, eggs, fruit etc. -- and plenty of it.
It was a longish walk to the Registan, but a taxi is inexpensive and seems to cost less if you let the staff order one by phone. There was no internet, or business centre as advertised on their website, but they would let you use the computer in reception if you needed to check e-mails. There are several internet places just around the corner which were cheap and had good connections.
