Tashkent is the capital and largest city of Uzbequistão, with great avenues, many green spaces and the main points of interest dispersed by the central zone. Everything looks great and imposing, in the good Soviet way, so you should choose well where to stay in Tashkent to explore it quietly. If possible walk away!
Next post, I will then try to help you choose where to sleep in Tashkent for a couple of nights.
Thus, the experience resulting from a recent visit to Tashkent, here are my recommendations on where to stay in Tashkent. In summary, opt without any doubt for staying in a hotel or small hostel in the center of the city. In particular, the area west of the Oybek metro station, where many of the hotels referenced here. Find all the details below. Let's do it!
Best Accommodations in Tashkent
Hotels in the center
I stayed in hostel called Sunrise Caravan Stay - Boutique Guesthouse which I highly recommend. It has a fantastic atmosphere, is very clean and the staff is helpfull and friendly. Within the same register, there is also the Amir Khan Hostel (if you want to stay even near the airport) and Homestay B & B Hostel, where I also considered lodging; but I believe that in this segment, the Sunrise Caravan Stay is the best.
More comfortable will undoubtedly be the very pleasant Hotel Nice and, in particular, the Sightseeing - a magnificent three-star hotel located farther north. It is surely one of the best value for money hotels in Tashkent.
If you can stretch the budget a bit more, I highly recommend the excellent Ichan Qal'a Hotel - surely one of the best hotels to stay in Tashkent - and the beautiful Lotte City Hotel. This without forgetting, of course, the Hyatt Regency Tashkent, perfect for business travelers and one of the most luxurious hotels in the city. Not very my style but who stayed there praised enough the quality and refinement.
Finally, if you prefer the privacy of a small studio, there will not be much better in Tashkent than the well-appointed ones Art Studio 2.
There are, of course, dozens of other hotel options in Tashkent. If hotels and guesthouses of Tashkent that I recommend here are not to your liking (or are depleted), search for other quality options using the link below.
Note that, despite the fame, the Hotel Uzbekistan leaves much to be desired in terms of quality; which is why it is not part of this list of recommendations.
After all, what is the best area to stay in Tashkent?
In my opinion, for the traveler wanting to feel the pulse of the city, the center is the best area where to stay in Tashkent. Enjoying a central location, you can easily get out of the hotel on foot and feel the city waking up. And the best is that there are cheap hotels in the center of Tashkent.
Note that, in my opinion, the area around Chorsu Market is not the most advisable.
When does it cost to sleep in Tashkent? (average price of hotels)
Tashkent is not an expensive destination and although there are luxury units, you can find many cheap hotels in Tashkent - especially hostels. So, for a couple of average requirement, who values the location but does not want to sleep or hostel basic or luxury hotels, the average daily cost will be around 30 €. But it is possible to sleep for less than 10 €.
In particular, for a good bed in a hostel shared with 7-10 €; in a medium-sized hostel, the price per double room is around 30 € (two people); and one night in a more luxurious hotel can exceed 80 €.
How many days does it take to get to know Tashkent?
It depends, of course, on your pace of travel; but I would say two days. Clearly, given the near absence of major tourist attractions, you can see the main of Tashkent in less time; but you will live a richer experience if you stay at least one or two nights. In any case, choose a good hotel to sleep in Tashkent and you will not regret it.
A World Nomads offers one of the best and most complete travel insurance recommended by National Geographic and Lonely Planet. Other excellent and cheaper option is IATI Seguros, which has no age limit and allows multivariate insurance (including long-term travel) to any destination in the world. It's the insurance I use in my travels.
