It was a great staying at antica and a warming welcome! The breakfast was awesome, situated in the little charmant streets and that still 5 minutes walking from the registan. A more then fair price for what you get!

To be fair, expected a little better from Antica. The breakfast is wonderful - the best in Turkmenistan - and Aziza is a wonderful host. However, no wifi in the room. Rooms are authentic but pretty basic. Good location near the old town. However, nothing to do at night. Alcohol overpriced and dinner 10 USD which is too much for... More

I loved Antica..... its a beautiful, quiet little B+B, unique because of its huge courtyard in the middle, flowers, apple trees growing wild...right in the heart of the old town. Qudbeya, the lady who owns and runs it, lives there with her parents. Its like being a guest in her home. The rooms are lovely ---simple , tastefully done, all... More

We loved this family run B& B close to Registan.Nice rooms round a small shady garden with a good atmosphere. As others have said the breakfasts are delicious and more than enough to eat . There is an evening meal bookable in advance which is also 3 courses and yummy but probably a bit expensive(10$) by Uzbek prices. We enjoyed... More

By far the best place I stayed at during my two trips through Uzbekistan (round trip by own car from Germany). The owner used to be a translator and tour guide and speaks excellent German. She is extremely helpful and has excellent contacts, so she managed to organize flight tickets for me in record time and assisted me with every... More

Lovely and very quiet place, the garden is a little paradise, well placed in the center of Samarkand. Incredible Breakfast, the best in Uzbekistan with hand made jam. Cultivated hosts with very interesting talk.

Antica Guesthouse is a lovely place! Hidden behind a beautiful wood-carved door in a quiet area of the old city, just a minute away from the mausoleum Gur Emir, it has a handful of rooms set up around a pretty garden of flowers and fruit trees. The rooms, although not very big, are nicely decorated with local objects, and all... More

For the money, I don't think this place is a good value. Breakfast is very good. Wifi is terrible. Many things in my room were broken. The owner can be nice, but can also be short tempered. The garden is nice, but at dusk, we were driven into our rooms by the mosquitoes. And at breakfast, had to fight off... More
