I stayed in a newly renovated room and honestly felt like I was in a five star hotel. Beautiful room, cleaned daily and fresh towels given. Amazing hospitality from Timur and his family. Fantastic breakfast spread served each morning at a time of your choosing. All for US$25 a night. Location is excellent, with the Registan just at the end of the street. Highly recommended!!

Beware! This is a B&B in two parts: a modern wing which is very comfortable and some old rooms which could not be more opposite. Make sure you book one of the new rooms. Six stars for them! The rooms are large and airy, well appointed with excellent bathrooms, a comfortable bed and nice linen. Like a luxury hotel. One star, though for the old rooms. We spent our first night in an old room, which was like being in a totally different place (and which was only a few dollars cheaper). Creaky, uncomfortable beds, old linen which doesn't even cover the mattress, paper thin walls and an extremely smelly bathroom with a broken shower. What they have in common is that the breakfast is delicious, Timur goes out of his way to provide help and information (his son is a better English speaker if you have problems), and the excellent location next to the Registan is right in the middle of the sights. All the better restaurants are a 30 min walk away in the Russian town, though. So, a tale of two B&Bs. 4 stars overall thanks to the fantastic new rooms.

Fabulous family homestay Run by the father Timur, his wife who is an excellent cook and their assisting English speaking daughter , this was the best place of our Uzbec tour. They went out of the way to make our stay unforgettable, such hospitality and always warm heartedly. We felt part of the family! The location is perfect: 5 min walk to Registan en 10 to Bibi Kanyum We got a free upgrade to the newly build rooms at the back. Big, quiet room, soft matresses, big bathroom and spotless clean. Cold and hot water, tea always available. Fast WiFi . Huge breakfast: egg, bun filled with carrot / meat, cheese,baklava, jam, fruits, salad served in the patio. The mother cooked our delicious dinners , really the best and healthy food we had during our trip. Don’t miss her culinair delicacies Staying at Timur the great was the cherry on the cake! Don’t miss it!
