In defense of the owner: the kitchen just exploded a couple of months ago. Still our room was very messy. Packed with furniture which provide no usage only block your way to access the toilet. The owner just got a new fridge which she put in our room making lots of noise at night (and adding to the ton of... More

If you're looking for a cheap and friendly place in Bukhara, you should choose Madina & Ali Guest House (former Madina & Ilyos Guest House). It's in the middle of Bukhara's old town, very near to Kalyan Minaret and Mosque, Lyab-i Hauz and the Ark, but in the same time it's very quiet place - without annoying noise from Lyab-i... More

Staying at the Madina & Ilyos was great! The atmosphere is super cozy, very central location and the prices are very low. Madina, the host was incredibly kind and helpful! She picked us up at the taxi and even took hour to travel to the train station with us to find tickets for the next day. She helped us with... More

Madina is really nice and cooks perfect breakfast. Rooms are nice and AC is good. Only 2/3 rooms so you really feel like home (and not in a travelers' factory). The kind of people you will want to support in their little enterprise! Much recommended

Good location, good Central Asian rooms, price seems appropriate for Bukhara. Big breakfast, helped us with taxis and good exchange rates. Awesome air conditioner. Met at station. Most importantly, Madina and her daughter are friendly, kind and trustworthy. They made them selves available day and night to answer our questions. We were to miss breakfast on the last day due...

Would highly recommend this place to budget (especially solo travelers) passing through Bukhara. Met a nice crew of interesting people when I stayed here. The dorm has wi-fi and reasonably comfortable beds. Breakfast is served in the cozy courtyard, and there is a rooftop balcony you can hang out on as well. Within walking distance of all of the sights... More

Tough place to find, but the effort is all worth it. Tiny little place, with a couple of rooms and a 3 bed dorm room. The doubles go for $10 a night per person with breakfast and the dorms are the same price, suited more towards solo travellers. The rooms, beds and bathrooms are really clean and the owner is...

I stumbled upon this place while in Bukhara. The air conditioning was a blessing in the middle of summer. Rooms are alright, if maybe rather spartan. Still a good deal for the price. Breakfast is generous and the owner did her best to help me out at all times. There's wifi and it's maybe 2-3 min by foot from the... More

Madina & Ilyos B&B is situated in the small house in the centre of Bukhara. Madina is kind and helpfull, though she looked a bit unhappy to deal with us. Wi-fi didn't work during our stay, but the breakfast was good and tasty. It's not easy to find it, it would be better if you call Medina on arrival.
