Location very close to the Savstsky museum in fact just a few yards from. About ten minutes walk to the bazary, one way and twenty minutes walk from the post Office the other. It is a reasonable distance from the railway station.

Cost- we paid $30 a night for two people for a room with a fan(very old) that worked but sounded like the trans Siberian express train was right in your room for 8 hours! Large shower room with western toilet, and sink. This was cleaned daily.

The room itself was situated off the courtyard and clean, which made it nice and easy for falling out of bed for breakfast (7-9a.m.) and falling back into bed after dinner. The courtyard itself is always lovely and cool down to the reed covered seating area. The guy who manages the outside restaurant (open from 7-11pm) makes the experience pleasant. The food here is also reasonably good and reasonably priced. They do do a lovely fried meat and potato dish, and a tasty pearl barley soup.

The staff at reception will attend to any issues you may have and can help with money changing too. They did and do allow you to use their landline phone to make uzbek calls and they have both wifi and cable internet for free, which is usually very good apart from one afternoon when because of the heat it dropped, badly!

They do arrange cars to go to Moynaq for around $90 if you need to.We did and loved it, it is a must do.

A really nice place - good but not particularily cheap, especially for a place as out of the way as Nukus. However, the help staff are super friendly, some of them speak English, the wait staff are happy to wash and cut fruit for you, breakfasts are good and it's central. I'd thoroughly recommend going there if you have the chance.
