Minzifa Inn

Top choice inn in Bukhara

Traditional Bukharan style is faithfully on display at this superb courtyard hotel, although the decor is toned down by flashes of modern art and subtler than usual colour schemes. It has some of the friendliest service in town, ultra-comfy oversized twin beds, espresso coffee and 13 uniquely decorated rooms with wooden ceilings and dripping with painted ghanch.

The Minzifa Inn annexe across the road has four more rooms, plainer and smaller, which cost around US$10 per person less.
