Reasonably good hotel in Khiva

Small hotel located in old Kihva, close to all main sights. The rooms were ok, but A/C did not work very well, which it's a problem if you are travelling in June. The staff was very friendly and helpful, they spoke a good English. The restaurant was quite good, one of the best I tried in Uzbekistan, which is clearly not famous for its food. The wireless worked ok.

Хороший отель в центре Хивы

Отель удобно расположен в центре Хивы, посреди достопримечательностей.
Оформлен в традиционном стиле, имеет достаточно просторные номера со всеми удобствами (ванная, кондиционер, телевизор и т д). Там же можно заказать экскурсии и купить сувениры. Всть уютный ресторан во дворе, каждый столик закрыт тентом, что очень удобно в жаркую погоду, еда вкусная, но по узбекским меркам дороже среднего.
Очень предупредительный персонал, готовый выполнить любую просьбу, кроме скидки на стоимость проживания:)
Все очень цивилизованно, заметили много иностранцев (в основном французов) среди постояльцев.

very nice and ideall location

This review is for the hotel inside the walled city (there are two hotels with the same name - one is inside the walled city and one just outside the walls). ideally located in the center of the old city.
the hotel has a traditional style restaurant in its compound, with good service. We liked the Tap-Chan sitting style, very much. the room was very clean and spacious. the view from the window is great.

Good location

Considering that the hotel is inside a historical old fortress, it's the place to stay at. You exit the hotel and you are in the heart of Ichan-Kala, fortress that had seen the good and bad days of the Khoresm khanate for many centuries. Explore shops inside the old town, wander around, try local food (which is actually very good at hotel's outdoor terrace).

A Good Choice, but room for improvement.

A nice hotel, and as many have said, ideally located for exploring this historic city. We arrived very late after a long flight from Moscow, and oddly our room didn't appear to be ready (this was at 23:30), and was hurridly prepared when we arrived, which was fine as it only took about 15mins - However it appeared that the bathroom had not been properly cleaned, and a bottle of bleach had been left on the bathtub by the cleaner - but I guess we all make mistakes! The beds were pretty dire to be honest, pretty flimsy and you can feel most of the mattress springs - certainly time for a new set of mattresses i think. It was nice to have a flat screen tv though, and the shower seemed hot with ok pressure throughout our stay.

I strongly recommend good earplugs as the hotel is made predominantly of wood and cladding, so every sound is echoed quite badly, especially people climbing stairs and shutting/locking the wooden doors. That said, it is a very quiet area at night, so if you have considerate neighbours, it's fine.

The staff are all very good, the receptionist on the front desk spoke excellent english and did a very good rate of exchange for Uzbek som, and was apologetic when I had to request him to ask some Russians who had just arrived to stop their children screaming and running about shouting and laughing for half an hour at 1am - not the hotel's fault, just some ignorant guests, but you usually get some everywhere!

Breakfast was a bit minimal and coffee is instant. The restaurant though serves relatively good food, and it's nice to sit on the benches outside to have tea or lunch. The hotel does a lot of catering for tour groups and we found one day we couldn't eat there (well - we could only have what appeared to be being served to the tour group!) - I suppose if they only have a small kitchen it's understandable, but with Uzbekistan gaining in popularity as a tourist destination, the hotel chain will need to up its game going forward to cater for all, not just lucrative tour groups.

Wifi was free, and generally worked well - it seemed to be down on our last night though.

As has been said previously - ideally located, everything is walkable within about 10mins max. Khiva is very small, and the 2 days we spent there allowed us more than enough time to see everything.

Overall a nice stay, just needs some work doing to bring it up to date a little.

Little choice in Khiva

Stayed one night in August 2013, traveling with a friend.

First, note that there are 2 hotels by the name Malika in Khiva. One is inside the walled city in a most central location, and the other is just outside the walled city. This review is for the hotel inside the walled city.

Second, as you may have already read, the hotels in Uzbekistan are quite basic and there is no such thing as a 5 star or 4 star property. This hotel gets 5 stars because I consider its location, as well as the traditional char-poy style restaurant in its compound, an advantage over other hotels in Khiva. Otherwise Malika Khiva is an okay property with good service.

What to watch out for: Breakfast is basic and disappointing (vegetarians are likely to go hungry!), limited plug points in the room to charge phones/ devices, and as other travelers mentioned, lack of water pressure in bathrooms.
