This 20-room place (and 13-room annexe) is perhaps the best budget option in the Ichon-Qala. The migraine-inducing wallpaper in the rooms may not scream style but there's much to like here, including a spacious airy courtyard, parking for overlanders, great rooftop views, flexible pricing and good-value single rooms.
Manager Murod is particularly helpful with travel information and can arrange good-value transport to Elliq-Qala, Bukhara, Nukus and the Turkmen border, as well as local tours.
