The boutique hotel, Sasha & Son consists of unique rooms (with bathrooms en suite) each opening up to one of a series of courtyards. The rooms themselves have painted log ceilings and brightly painted plaster walls.
The comfort and color were a welcome change from the desert landscapes outside of Bukhara oasis. Drinking tea in the main courtyard while reading books was relaxing and quiet.
The hotel was the house of a rich Jewish merchant. Now, it is owned by a native of Bukhara, whose mother was a Jewish woman from Ukraine and whose father was Uzbek. The entrepreneurial owner has two such B&Bs in Bukhara and one in St. Petersburg.
