Where to Stay in Tashkent
Tashkent is a sprawling city and tourist attractions are quite spread out across the town. Luckily the Tashkent metro is a very affordable way to travel around the city at around $0.15 for a ticket. Taxis booked via an app are also very cheap at around $2-3 for most journeys.
For tourists, two of the best areas to stay are the central areas of Amir Temur Square or Alisher Navoi Opera Theater. Both of these areas serve as a great base to explore from.
Hotels in these areas aren’t always the best value for money but are all within walking distance to many landmarks, parks, and restaurants. See all hotels in the center.
