The Malika has a great position opposite the main gate to the old city of Khiva. It means that you can easily go back and forth and also that it is very quiet, as the old city closes up at night and is free of cars.
The building reflects Khiva brilliantly, with a large , light filled central court yard.
The rooms are spacious but basic.However, everything functions properly.
The staff are particularly friendly and helpful.
I found it a haven from the heat and a pleasant place to hang about in.
It is probably a 3 star hotel but the welcoming spirit of management lifts it to a 4 star .
