Owner very kind. Cheap, clean and good food. I stayed 3 nights and it was very calm. Very good location just 200 m from the Registan, Bibi khanum and Shah I Zinda. There was building a new B&B nearby. Highly recommanded.

The owner described 'Timur the Great' as a small guesthouse on the registration note. But I was given a very big twin room with private bathroom. It was a pleasant room with a big table, a wardrobe with a large mirror and a long sofa. The bathroom was a bit basic and the water left the drain slowly but there...

I feel like I'm writing the same review for every place I stayed during the first half of my stay in Uzbekistan. The B&B had a great breakfast and friendly staff (one spoke English, the other Russian), low prices and great location (very close to the Registan), but unfortunately the WiFi was borderline unusable most times, other than for quickly...

Easily one of the best places we stayed in Uzbekistan. Located very close to Registan and Siyob bazaar, you can hardly get better location. The family which owns the place is very nice, the woman speaks russian while her husband speaks english. They were able to help us with everything, local information, money exchange and we could always ask for...

A very pleasant place to stay. We had a very warm welcome by the family and their hospitality continued throughout our stay. It's a great location, an OK garden and very good breakfast. They could do with a better sign outside to attract more custom. The son spoke very good English. Rooms were OK. Not 5* luxury rooms but they...

We stayed for three nights. Location was very near the registan. Family was very friendly. Breakfast was good, and there was a nice place to sit, where we would get free green tea. Wifi and airco were available. Son spoke good english.

I was very disappointed. Rooms are very old, furniture and bathrooms are filthy. Bed had flies on. Everything was dilapidated, and hot water was impossible to achieve. Wifi did not work initially, and no attempt was made to fix it. There were four of us travelling. I booked 2 twin rooms for two nights. On the second night we were...

Perfect location! The mom in the family makes the stay so much better. Always with a smile and so good service! They are going to get wifi. Great breakfasts! And tea whenever you want for free. Cons: the bathroom smelled e little, but the best hot shower I got I. Uzbekistan! No wifi. A little dark rooms.

Well overpriced at US$40 a night (80,000 Sum). You can find much better accommodation elsewhere for $US45. Yes a very kind family and a convenient location but the bedroom had no windows and felt depressing.
