“Authentic feeling”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2014

Well situated in a small alley debouching into the Lyabi Hauz this hotel in authentic traditional style brings one in the right mood to visit beautiful Buchara. The manager and his great staff speak well English. The rooms are clean and spacious. In summer a very good breakfast is served on the porch of the old merchant house. Wifi is available in the lobby and the surrounding rooms. The airco however is in most rooms old and noisy, and should be modernized, as are some of the sanitary equipment. But all by all a very good base camp to visit the old town.

Room Tip: The rooms in the second courtyard are more quiet.

We recently stayed two nights in the Lyabi House. The location puts you in the centre of the old city and offers a great opportunity to explore the old city.
The hotel itself has a big open courtyard which is a great space to relax in. When we were there it was still too cool to have breakfasts out in the courtyard, which I am told is teh practice in the warmer months.
The room was clean and comfortable and the staff very accomodating. The breakfasts provided were plentiful. I had to pick and choose to accomodate a gluten free diet, but I didn't go hungry.

I visit Bukhara at least twice a year and always stay at Lyabi Haus. The location is perfect, the rooms large and decorated in an understated way that is most attractive. Many rooms have bath tubs. The dining room, an original Bukharan merchant's reception room, is breathtaking.

Breakfast is generous and varied, coffee is filtered. The staff are outstanding - friendly, helpful with bags and attentive. It is the only place for me in Bukhara.

We enjoyed the courtyard most in the afternoon to catch our breath from sightseeing. Breakfast was great, good selection, very switched on friendly service and the setting on the balcony in the courtyard with beautifully decorated ceiling.

Location is of course also second to none just two steps away from the buzz on the main square, so close but quiet at the same time

What i particular like about this hotel is it's design, especially the place to have breakfast. It is designed in tradition silk road cities style. Breakfast is only so-so with a few varieties of selection mainly american or continental style breakfast. Would be great if the breakfast could provide a tradition Bukharian style food to enhance the experience of staying in a silk road city.

The room is spacious but nothing special.

Hotel is centrally located and near to all the attractions in Bukhara.

A very nice quiet hotel (renovated merchants house I think) lots of style and sympathetically restored keeping lots of local features. Courtyards roof terraces,
Just a nice quaint little place especially is you are fed up with modern hotels.

The staff were delightful and very very helpful.
You can not better the location as it is right in the middle of all the activities.

Really recommend this place just give the website a look and you will see why.

Room Tip: try and get a room above the ground floor

Its hard to imagine a more central place to stay in Old Town Bukhara than Lyabi House. Rooms were spacious and clean. Breakfast was served in part of the hotel that is an old merchants home - functional in a modern context but still charming, and having an old world feel about it. Staff were multilingual and friendly. Laundry service was fast and inexpensive. All up this was a great option for a few nights in Bukhara.
