A Unique Boutique Hotel
If you like your holidays, or business trips for that matter, to be characterised by warm hospitality, attention-to-detail, and personal touches, then check out the Rabat Boutique Hotel…
This small boutique hotel is located in the city of Samarkand in the heart of the Jewish quarter within walking distance from Registan Square. The house was conceived in 1905 by Yakov Zavulunov, a Bukharian Jewish merchant. The building is beautifully maintained and has been preserved as it was when built by artisans from Syria and Afghanistan.
The hotel has a quiet inner courtyard with a garden, and eight cosy rooms decorated in Uzbek style with many handicrafts. The sympathetically preserved dining room boasts a high ceiling with carvings and intricate wall paintings. The hotel owner Firdavs and his team will treat you like one of the family and will do everything to make you feel at home. This place is definitely the best way to experience true Uzbek hospitality.
The 14th century city of Samarkand was said to be the most magnificent city in Central Asia. In the city centre is The Registan, a great square flanked by three majestic madrassas (places of learning) covered in ornate mosaics in hues of vibrant emerald, azure, blue and gold.
