- First impression could be good. Then you turn light on and find some bulbs missing or burned out, luxury management system not connected, you getting towel unexpectedly with teared out hanger and so on.
+ I got in hotel bar Jack Daniel's (per 50 gr shots) cheaper than in all duty free shops I ever seen. Maybe even cheaper than in America. Taste was ok. I still racking my brain on this economical puzzle.
- I couldn't remember exact pricing, but Wi-Fi access is bloody expensive. Really you need to run heroin Internet shop to use it profitable.

We spent three nights in the Regal Palace, located on the outskirts of Samarkand, close to the airport and about a 15 minute drive from the historic centre. We were upgraded to a large suite which was adequately equipped and comfortable apart from erratic air-conditioning. The elaborate bathtub/shower combination had a complex of switches which we never quite mastered.

We had two main meals in the restaurant, each time working from a good buffet. The buffet breakfasts were also adequate with ample alternatives.

The Front Desk staff spoke good English and were helpful. There is a well stocked souvenir and book store.

Our main complaint is the overpriced internet service. This is provided on a pay per MB basis, which apparently includes upload as well as download – so, if your laptop backs up images via the internet, disable this facility or be prepared for a shock on checkout.

Although it would not quite meet that rating in the 'west’ the Regal Palace’s claim to be four star is justified in the local context.
