Orzu Tashkent Hotel
Ranked #33 of 40 Hotels in Tashkent
Reviewed October 16, 2011

Hotel Orzu has certainly seen better days but it's still a clean and central option for the budget traveller. We found it difficult to find accommodation in Tashkent mid September – Hotel Orzu was one of the few places that had a room available. There are a lot of other budget options in the near area although some are popular with tour groups so they may book out in advance. We wanted to stay at Gulnara Guesthouse but they were booked out solid until October. As a bonus, Hotel Orzu was the only hotel we stayed at in Central Asia that cost significantly less than the price quoted in the latest Lonely Planet edition (it looks like they've recently put their price down). We paid 87,000SOM for a twin room per night, which at the black market rate worked out to be about USD35.

The room we stayed in was a small twin bedroom with en-suite bathroom on the ground floor. It was normally very quiet at night, except on Saturday night when some some local teenagers decided to drink outside our window. Double beds are also available. The carpet was pretty stain ridden from age but clean enough. Likewise the bathroom was a bit stained but the shower had good pressure and there was plenty of hot water. The room was a bit on the small side and barely fit our two packs and other bits and pieces. Buffet breakfast was included in the room rate and was OK - typically gruel, toast, cucumber, tomato, egg, fruit. The hotel has no internet or wi-fi but there was a good internet cafe just around the corner There was also a fridge and air-con in the room, although we didn't need it because it was quite cool in the evenings. Mirobod Bazaar is only about 15 minutes walk away where there are plenty of money changers, as well as cheap local cafes, restaurants and bars.

The hotel reception staff were a bit funny about doing our registration slip for the whole three nights we stayed there – they wanted to give us a new slip every morning after we'd paid for the previous night. It was a bit strange because every other place we stayed at gave us the registration slip for our entire stay within the first day we arrived and we just paid the full balance when we left. It was no problem though – we were stopped at the metro stations but the police were happy enough to see a photocopy of our passport page and visa and never asked to see our registration slips.

If the hotel offers to help with a taxi it's probably best you hail your own. From the airport they charge USD10 for a taxi. You can catch an official airport taxi for USD4 or take the bus for a matter of cents. We were catching the 7AM Registan Express to Samarkand and wanted to catch a taxi to the station at around 6AM. The hotel reception and security guard said they'd help us hail one down outside the hotel. At least three taxis stopped but once the hotel staff talked to them they took off – the receptionist said it was because they were pre-booked (which begs the question of why they stopped in the first place). The security guard said he'd call a taxi for us, which we presumed would be his mate and cost several times the amount it should. We said no thanks and ended up hailing one by ourselves straight away.

All in all not a bad option if you're on a budget.

Small rooms and nevertheless packed with the facilities you need, fridge, air con and bathroom.
Not very far from the public transport that can take you around in Tashkent, if you need a taxi, the reception will always arrange it for you.
If there are available rooms, early check in/late check out is possible at a small fee.
The breakfast is nothing special, about average, but will give you a decent start of your day. Though there is a menu left in the room, there are no other meals available on site.

We stayed here for one night which cost $45 for a twin room. The room was small, but clean and well-equipped, with fridge, TV, air-con and a decent bathroom. Staff spoke good English and the breakfast buffet was excellent.

Note that although they display a sign saying that you can only pay in sum, we did see some guests paying in US$.

When we returned to Tashent after travelling around the country, we tried to stay there again, but it was full. However, the receptionist very helpfully gave us details of other hotels in the area.

Whilst not exactly 5* standard it provided a cheap and cheerful place to stay whilst driving through Uzbekistan. We parked up right outside the front of the hotel and were met by two friendly female staff at reception.

Although we were told there was a fridge in our room, we found that there wasn't. However when we complained to reception they had two guys carry one from another room!

We asked them to recommend somewhere to eat typical Uzbekistan-y food and they told us to head to the place opposite. However, despite the menu being translated into English we couldn't understand the dishes at all, so just went for something with ingredients we liked. I'd suggest giving it a miss and head down the main high street into downtown Tashkent instead.

I spent the evening sat on the front step drinking nice Uzbek beer from the fridge in reception. However, when I returned to the room I found the aircon ridiculously loud and clunky! Being a light sleeper I had no option but to turn it off and fetch a fan from the car.

Breakfast was pretty simple, but then a cup of tea and an egg was good enough for me.

Once we checked out I took some money out of my pocket and found one note torn in two due to the heat / sweat. I went to the front desk to see if they had any sellotape but after a quick look they just took it and gave me a back a brand new note!

Overall, if you're on a budget you could do worse than stay here. The rooms are pretty small, but it's cheap and service pretty good.

I am a regular traveller and has visited several countries like Turkey,Malaysia,Thailand,Dubai,India,Kazkhastan and twice earlier Tashkent but this time due to bad luck I stayed in this small hotel for 5 consecutive nights from 21st july,07 to 26th July.The hotel had only 26 rooms but they were mostly unoccupied.This seems to be due to worst attitude of their staff.The complimentary brakfast,they serve consists of only bread and tea.The hotel also charges you for local calls on high rates.The restaurant girl named Irvena is highly arrogant and have insulting attitude with the hotel guests.I complained to hotel receptionests about her attitude but of no use.I requested the tall receptionest for my return seat confirmation from Uzbekistan Airways office but her reply was non-cooperative and insulting and told me she does not know the phone number.The rooms are small and uncomfortable.The A.C' in the rooms are very very old and do not work properly and I had to spend all nights there in discomfert.At last my booking was over and I shifted to Rovshan Hotel which was very comfortable,staff cooperative and new A.C's and excellent breakfast.
