This claims itself to be a 4-star hotel. It could only be a self-administered rating. Our rooms were in building 2, which may mean something. On first inspecting them we noticed that they were not very large and furnished basically. For a start there were no chairs in either room, just a small stool that did not allow one to sit at the desk. Then there were no tissues, no kettle to heat water, no fly-screen though the room faced south and was very hot. The TV could not have had more than a 15" screen. Some of the furniture was chipped. Every hotel in Central Asia provided 2 free bottles of water, but not this one; one had to pay for it. Laundry prices are way above other places and payment is accepted only in $US, very handy for conversion at black-market rates 30-40% above official bank rates. Most amazingly, spare keys to every room are kept dangling on a rail just where one reaches the top step to the floor. They conveniently have the room number on them: great security!!
It seems that most occupants are ployglot one-nighters and they begin crowding the corridors at 6:00am and going to the buses revving outside. We had the misfortune to stay 3 nights. There are better hotels within the old city. I have stayed at the Malika before and it is a much better property.
