❝Very nice, helpful and friendly staff. Great location in heart of city 10 mins walk to Registan. Lovely airy old building with rooms with high ceilings and en suite bathrooms. Good breakfast especially the great selection of fruit.❞
❝The location was nice, not too far from Registan Square (10,000 Som taxi ride) or walkable distance about 15 mins. The B&B was neat and clean and the bathroom was good too.❞
Samarkand is a city in Uzbekistan known for its mosques and mausoleums. It's on the Silk Road, the ancient trade route linking China to the Mediterranean. Prominent landmarks include the Registan, a plaza bordered by 3 ornate, majolica-covered madrassas dating to the 15th and 17th centuries, and Gur-e-Amir, the towering tomb of Timur (Tamerlane), founder of the Timurid Empire. Shah-i-Zinda is a street lined with lavishly decorated mausoleums that are Muslim pilgrimage sites. The massive 15th-century Bibi-Khanym Mosque, completely rebuilt since the 1970s, stands next to the city's large outdoor market, the Siyob (or Siab) Bazaar. Outside the city center, the ruins of the hill fort of Afrasiyab date back to the 7th century B.C. and are known for rare Sogdian wall murals. The Ulugh Beg Observatory and museum sheds light on the scientific achievements of the city's 15th-century astronomers.
