The hotel itself is one of the historical landmarks of Bukhara and has its own interesting story. Construction works started in the middle of XIX-th century by the order of Kushbegi (military chief) Urganchi, one of most influential persons of old Bukhara in those days. As many people thought, the large house was intended to be the family home of that young bek (nobleman). Urganchi didn’t spare his money for decorations and comforts. When building was ready he organized reception to celebrate the event with Bukhara Emir invited as a guest of honor. Emir was attending cutting-red-ribbon ceremony and admired the elegance of new house, creative architecture, complexity of decorations and woodwork. Noble man was quick to respond that the house from the very beginning was intended to be bestowed to Emir to be one of his residences. This obviously pleased Emir Ahad-khan who took his caftan, armor and jewelry off and put it on Urganchi's shoulders as a gesture of his favors. Since then Hovli Poyon was considered as one of Emir's town residences along with Ark (Old Citadel).

Now this is a private hotel. Though building is old hotel is well equipped with modern conveniences. It has grand ayvan and a huge courtyard with fruit trees.The massive gate is the visiting card of Hovli Poyon opens the entrance into the shady corridor, which leads through courtyard to guest room and hotel rooms.
