Accor has signed a cooperation agreement with Ayvan Palace LLC to open a new Mercure hotel in Bukhara, an ancient city in Uzbekistan. Mercure Bukhara Old Town will welcome its first guests later in 2022 and offer all the benefits of Mercure’s highest global standards of service, including the opportunity to become a member of the loyalty programme ALL – Accor Live Limitless.

Bukhara is located in the delta of the Zeravshan river. It is a museum town with over 140 architectural monuments dating back to the Middle Ages. The amount of ancient buildings remains high, and the historic centre has outstanding significance as an exceptional example of a medieval Muslim city in Central Asia and has been inscribed on UNESCO’s World Heritage List. Today, as one of the most ancient cities of Central Asia, Bukhara is an important cultural hub and a popular tourist destination thanks to its restored monuments and traditional crafts such as gold embroidery and metalwork.

The new Mercure Bukhara Old Town will be nestled in the Old Town of Bukhara, on Samarkandskaya street, close to the main sites of ancient Islamic architecture: caravanserais and madrasahs. The magnificent Lyabi-Hauz architectural complex comprising three monumental buildings and the Poi-Kalyan architectural ensemble is a quick walk from the hotel. Those who like oriental bazaars and the authentic shopping experience will appreciate the proximity of three trade domes in Bukhara – Taki-Sarrafon, Taki-Telpak Furushon and Taki-Zargaron Bazaar only eight minutes away from the hotel.

Mercure Bukhara Old Town fully embodies the brand’s “Locally inspired” philosophy, showcasing elegant design inspired by local culture and telling its unique story. Developed and designed by the famous Bukhara architect Zoirsho Klychev, many details in the hotel’s architecture and interior design reflect the region’s history and cultural heritage.

The hotel will feature 57 rooms and a wide range of services to meet the guests’ expectations. The hotel infrastructure will include a wellness centre with a swimming pool, hammam and sauna, a modern fitness centre, a restaurant, a bar and fully equipped meeting rooms for business purposes.
