Emir is a small family Hotel located in the historic part of Samarkand city, just 5 minute walk from the XV-th century Gur-Emir monument (Timur's mausoleum). Emir B&B has a prime location and is within walking distance of the main sights of Samarkand. It is only a 10-minute walk to the historical complex of the Registan Square. The neighbourhood is very quiet, ornate and very cute, typical of Samarkand. A short walk will take you to several restaurants of national cuisine.
The hotel consists of a central building with a courtyard and 8 rooms are arranged on several levels. Rooms are not very large, cool and with not much noise. All rooms decorated in a traditional style and basically furnished. The small bathrooms have a shower.
Breakfast is home-style (porridge, cheese, butter, sausages, bread, tea, fruits), good, generous and is set outside under shade in the summer time. The hotel offers free Wi-Fi and free water in the lobby.
The staff is very friendly and helpful, but customer service is lagging behind considerably. Being good & friendly and being professional is different things that they still have to learn about.
Good location, decent and pricewise accommodation level. Just customer service could be slightly improved. Otherwise ok to stay.
