We said at the Sayram Hotel in Oct 2011, having visited Samarkand and were flying out from Tashkent the next day. We took the train from Samarkand and the hotel was about 10 minutes drive from the train station in Tashkent. This was a very pleasant small hotel. The staff were very friendly and helpful and the roms comfortable and well appointed, (although the bed was harder than those at home). We also had a very tasty and pleasant meal at this hotel when we arrived at about 9.30pm. I would certainly recommend this as a hotel and it also seems to be popular with locals as well as tourists.
