Unlike Bukhara, where walking from sight to sight is possible, Samarkand's attractions are spread right across the city. Starting in the centre, the Mosque of Bibi Khanym dominates the skyline. It was once the biggest mosque in the world and has been partially rebuilt with UNESCO help.
Hotel Malika Prima
Hotel Malika Prima, Samarkand, Uzbekistan
This is the newest hotel in the reliable Malika chain. Its location in the city is fantastic - close to Gur Amir, the resting place of Tamerlane. The hotel has just 22 rooms, in keeping with the Malika's small hotel appeal. This being a new hotel, its is still developing its character. However, its fantastic location more than makes up for this and the views from the rooftop terrace are great.
