Hotel Legende
Ranked #3 of 45 Samarkand B&B and Inns
Reviewed June 8, 2012

We adored staying here for 15 days while doing field work in Samarkand. Equidistant from Registan, Bibi Khanum and Shah-i-Zinda monuments, this oasis of cool and tranquility is situated in the midst of a traditional neighborhood - a mahalla. The westerly (lefthand) part of the courtyard building is designated by UNESCO as a significant architectural resource. Rooms #1 & 2 and the adjacent iwan bear out this status. As with all modestly priced hotels in UZ, there are peculiarities with plumbing and electricity (hence the rating). Don't let this prevent you from enjoying this lovely place; use the courtyard as your living room and enjoy the staff's lunch or dinner if you want to dine in.

Reviewed February 12, 2012

The hotel takes up the entirety of a former home/mansion built over 100+ years ago, around large inner courtyard complete with trees, sitting and eating areas. Staying here means taking a moment to go back in time to savor a more classic period of Samarkand. And by so doing, you can really enjoy the experience. Our room was decorated very nicely and had all sorts of neat handcrafts and textiles. The bathroom was elemental and clean, things worked but don't expect the latest in high tech. Electricity could be out for a short time but nothing serious. But isn't that what travel is all about? The dining room is amazing - after taking off one's shoes and entering into its extraordinary decor, everyone's first response is 'wow'. We got to know the hotel owner and family/staff. They were very friendly and helpful (using various languages including mime and French!). We ate there one night, just ask if they'd prepare dinner. I have fond memories of taking an afternoon and just reading on the courtyard bed/lounge and enjoying the sounds of birds, sharing musical likes, etc. FYI, the hotel is a wind-y but eminently walkable way to the Registan. Upon exiting the hotel, turn right and nose your way through the various alleys, side streets, etc.
