Culture/Sightseeing

The 50-room Green Park Hotel was home for two nights at the beginning of our Central Asia tour. Located in the Yakkasarai district of Tashkent, Uzbekistan’s capital, it was modern and appeared relatively new.

Our small, ground floor room (115) had a comfortable double bed with huge padded headboard in shades of brown and cream and four pillows with bedside tables and lights on both sides. The mirrored wardrobe contained a safe, slippers and robes, and there was a long desk with an empty fridge underneath, plus chair and space for one suitcase. Bottled water was provided along with tea and coffee making facilities and the AC and WiFi both worked well and were simple to operate.

The bathroom was light, bright and modern. The plus points were a good walk in shower with reasonable power and hot water, plenty of towel hooks and a good hairdryer and mirror combination. The minus points were that a seven-foot man had fixed the shaving mirror, rendering it useless for a six-foot husband, and a large basin which took up too much space.

As we’d landed at 7.30am, we had an early check in and breakfast which was available from 6.30am to 11am. There was a good selection of juice, cereals, nuts and seeds, yoghurts, salads, cold meats and cheeses, scrambled eggs and other hot dishes, with a sign saying omelettes could be ordered.

The hotel had two lovely gardens: one off the restaurant with lots of tables and chairs where we enjoyed chilled local Sarbast beers after sightseeing, and pre-dinner gins with Sprite in the absence of tonic water. A second larger garden had swinging seats and extensive lawns.

With no restaurants within walking distance, we ate in the hotel with its European menu of salads, pasta and meat dishes. Our choices were fine but not inspiring and service was a little haphazard. On both nights, we were virtually the only customers and even at breakfast, we saw only a handful of guests.

On the first night, wine was only available by the glass, and whilst stocks appeared to have arrived the following day, with an alarm set for 4.30am due to an early flight, we stuck to beer.

Whilst the hotel wasn’t in the best location for sightseeing or eating out, it’s major advantage is its proximity to the airport.

There appeared to be extensive conference facilities to one side, but we didn’t see any evidence of guests or meetings.
