Uzbekistan has some charming accommodation (especially B&Bs), but it's important to book them well in advance during high season, especially in Bukhara, Khiva and Samarkand, where all the best places will normally be full. Lesser options are unfortunately a big step down in comfort and atmosphere. Homestays are possible in the Nuratau Mountains, with yurtstays north of Nurata.

Hotels generally price their rooms in US dollars, but in the wake of currency reforms in 2017 tourists will have to pay for hotel rooms in Uzbek som.

Homestayers and campers face a range of potential problems related to registration.
