The Amulet hotel was opened in Bukhara in the building of the Said Kamol Madrassah, built in 1861 by a Bukharian merchant Mir-Said Kamol. This old madrassah is located in the heart of ancient Bukhara, in the Nakshbandi street. This old building has seen a lot over its long history.
Once students studied and lived here, in small cells, far away from their beloved and relatives. The tuition year were lengthy, so that childhood and youth could pass in the same walls.
The madrassah was standing abandoned and empty for quite a while. It could come to non-existence, wearing off, dwindling… but then the four year restoration was started and the madrassah has seen a new emergence. Yet, the ambience of old times was preserved.
In some cells, you can see fragments of wall decorations and inscriptions ‘kyrma’, which was made by a skillful artisan using vegetable dyes.
Despite the seeming sternness of the edifice, as it looks like a medieval castle, you will feel coziness and homey warmth from the first second here.
Each item in the interior has been picked with taste, be it the old grandmother’s box, a massive walnut bed or elegant chairs and tables made by a talented Bukhara artisan Aleksey Syromyatnokov.
Yet, like any good hotel, here you find a restroom, shower booth, cold and hot water. The hospitable hosts of the madrassah hotel are always there to assist you. The feeling of a new unknown oriental world is harmonized with the stay in a 19th century building of the ancient Bukhara.
The hotel features a small library devoted to history and architecture of Bukhara. A point of interest for travelers is the evening exercise – pilau cooking demo where you can participate in cooking the most popular Uzbek dish.
In the hotel there is Internet access, a copying machine and a computer.
The public room is decorated in the Bukharian style: around a small table with an hearth underneath for heating, you would have thick blankets or mattresses and cushions to be in comfort while watching TV (200 channels) and drinking fragrant tea or coffee.
