You see that window at the back ~ that was my room in Khiva !
The Orient star hotel, Khiva is located in Ichan-Kala, the internal city of Khiva and occupies a building of a former madrassah of Moukhammed Amin Khan, which was built in the middle of the 19th century (1851 - 1853). It is the biggest madrassah of the city where up to 250 students resided and studied till the beginning of the 20th century. Nowadays, former cells of the students accommodate the tourists. The spirit of past times reigns over every nook of the hotel. The connoisseurs, as well as amateurs of ancient history and architecture may appreciate this hotel at its true value once they take a closer look at it.
