Probably the best top-end option in town, with a boutique feel to the spacious, exposed brick rooms. The hotel consists of two buildings on either side of the road; the main one on the western side is perhaps better, with a pleasant courtyard. The 'superior' annexe across the road has two pools and a nice outdoor restaurant under a trellis.
Set in the heart of Samarkand, this hotel offers European cuisine, a garden and free Wi-Fi in public areas. The Old Town district and Registan Square are within a 10-minute drive. Rooms at the Grand Samarkand offer satellite TV, a minibar and a work desk. They are warmly decorated in a traditional Uzbek style, and include a private bathroom with a hairdryer. The classically decorated restaurant features an antique piano, and offers a rich variety of à la carte European and Uzbek dishes. A range of drinks and cocktails are also served in the bar, which overlooks the quiet courtyard. The Guru Amir Mausoleum is 2 km away, and it is 750 metres to the International Museum of Peace and Solidarity. Both Samarkand Airport and Samarkand Train Station are an 8-minute drive from Hotel Grand Samarkand. A shuttle service is available for an extra fee, and free on-site parking is also offered.
Please note that for foreign nationals cash and bank card payments are accepted in EUR or USD only. Please note that hotel does not accommodate non-married Uzbek couples. All Uzbek couples must present a valid marriage certificate upon check-in.
