A hundred meters from magnificent walls of the ancient Ichan-Kala fortress with the Kalta-Minor minaret dominating over it, there is a small hotel – the Malika Khiva. Built in 2004, the hotel resembles a madrasah by its outlines. Inside, the guests find themselves in a spacious hall surrounded with two-storey corridors with rooms.
The hall is decorated with various suzanés, embroideries, carpets, dolls, mannequins dressed in Khorezm national costumes and even an arba (bullock cart), which make you feel that you are in a merchant shop, located on the Great Silk Road, rather than in a hotel. The oriental idyll is only interfered by chessmen with a chessboard drawn right in the center of the hall.
The whole hotel is decorated in bright tones and that is why it looks like being filled with light. The same bright hotel rooms have a small area and rather modest furniture, but in spite of the minimalism in the room arrangement they are very cozy to stay in.
