The Asia Khiva hotel is located just outside of the old city - walking towards the entrance gate only means crossing the parking lot and a small street, perhaps 50 meters. Being outside of the city walls is a good thing for this hotel: while it is all very modern, marble tiled and glitzy, it is a bit of an eyesore compared to the inner town with its romantic old architecture.
The room we stayed in was on the first floor on the front of the hotel, directly overlooking the (lit) entrance gate. This also means you get the full blast of sunlight in the morning and since the curtains are fairly translucent, you will probably wake up early.
The room itself was very spracious, came with a good en-suite bathroom and a private balcony with a couple of chairs and a table on it. In spring this is a nice place to sit at night with a drink and a smoke. Wifi is available, but at times the outside connection fails so you cannot actually use the internet even when you are well within range of the wifi system itself.
Breakfast is a very nice buffet offering a large selection of both bread, cheese, meats, pancakes, eggs and such.
There seem to be different room types in this hotel however, and some may be smaller, not have a balcony, etc, so make sure what kind of room you make a reservation for, and ask to see it if you have not made a reservation. The hotel has a courtyard with a swimming pool, and some rooms will face that. Having this could be a big benefit if you go in the hot season.
Payments are accepted in Uzbek Som at the official rate, so you can save greatly on the prices if you change your western currency into Som at more favourable market places - plenty of shops a few steps into the old city will accomodate your needs.
