Great stay
The stay was great... Yummy breakfast, quiet room, with walking distance to the down town. My husband did wish we had a t.v. but we got along fine without one.

Would not choose again if I come back
The only thing positive about the stay was that I got a very big room with 3 beds whereas I was traveling solo. The worst part was the condition of the bathroom. There was sewage smell coming from the drains and the shower floor made of plastic was cracked, even hard to stand on it. Location was not bad but the only place at a walking distance was the Gur-e- Amir Mausoleum. About 15 minutes walk. But in 36 celsius heat that was hard to do. The breakfast was very ordinary. They tried to cut corners, for example instead of honey they had condensed milk to spread over waffles. Not much choice of fruit either. Overall not a very good experience. I would not stay again if I come back.

The room was small and not well furnished but clean. The breakfast was excellent but really excessive in price for the quality of the room.
