“Never again, unless...”
Reviewed October 30, 2013

... you nostalgic for dirty rooms and poor service standards which Hotel Uzbekistan was known during the Soviet era. It has not changed a bit. The experience that I wish to never happen again. From booking to greeting at the reception, to fighting to get a clean room, to trying to cheat on the bill by charging extra night stay. For $20-30 extra USD you can get a room at a hotel run by Western Management.

Room Tip: If you have to stay, make sure to get a room at a renovated floor.

I stayed in this hotel in October 2013 on vacation.

Good points: Perfect location, right in the centre of the city. Excellent breakfast buffet with lots of cuisine options available. Despite being built during Soviet times the hotel was well maintained with good quality rooms.

Bad points: The staff weren't very friendly but did speak good English.

uzbekistan hotel is like an old dowager: a place that has had a reputation when it first opened but now we consider it more than a bit seedy. the location is good, the facilities are not. some of the issues we had were: there was a major hole in the bathroom door (c. 18" sq), curtains were torn, bedsheets too, toilet paper holder was broken, no glasses in the bathroom. that's just to start. breakfast was plentiful, but lacked imagination: heavy emphasis on 'less healthy food', i.e. there's tons of meat, but fruit less so. the hotel caters to large tour groups i would barely give it 1 star, barely.

Stayed for one night at the start of a tour in a single room. Clearly not in the refurbished part of the hotel. Three power points didn't work, which took out two lamps and the TV, there were exposed wires in a couple of places, there was no water in the room even though you are advised not to drink the tap water. The room itself was small and shabby and just a bit depressing. The public areas are a bit grander. Breakfast was in a huge ballroom still set up for a big wedding the night before. The breakfast was quite good, with a lot of choice and even an omelette chef. A couple of the others in the group had eaten in the cafe at the hotel the night before and said it was a good meal with some reasonably priced French wine.

Don't be put off by the "Soviet bloc" appearance - this is really quite a decent hotel. It is in the best location, right on Amur Timur Square (the central park), next door to the metro station, and within 15 minutes' walk of the National Museum. The park is a really nice place to hang out around sunset and people watch or chat with the locals. OK, the rooms are not brand new, but in mine everything worked. The breakfast buffet is lavish. Staff were pleasant. There is a bar and restaurant on the top floor (one floor ABOVE the top floor on the lift), more economical than the main dining room - it is not advertised and I did not discover this until the second day!

Room Tip: Ask for view over park.

Stayed at Hotel Uzbekistan for four nights (2+2) in October 2013 as part of a group.

Both rooms and staff are of variable quality as mentioned in a previous review.

It is centrally located in a very safe city with taxis always on hand and close to the metro.
Wi-Fi speed very variable depending of the distance to the nearest router.

I found the breakfast good and complete with omelets by choice.

Room tariffs much to high to offer value for money

Room Tip: go for a refefurbished room

Stayed at this hotel for a total of 5 nights in September / October 2013. Rooms and staff are both highly variable. Some of the larger, recently refurbished rooms are quite good with decent beds, functioning TVs and modern bathrooms. Others are dingy and small with stained carpets, cracked bathroom tiles, non functioning toilets and ancient AC units.

Pros: good location, taxis always on hand, easy to change money on the premises at black market rates, efficient front desk, credit cards accepted.

Cons: some rooms dingy and old fashioned, no safety boxes in rooms, old and noisy AC units in rooms, poor breakfast, some staff disinterested and unfriendly, wifi slow

If you can afford I would pay a bit more and go for one of the better 4 stars.

Room Tip: Avoid standard rooms and request a refurbished room at the front of the building.
