The hotel’s strategic positioning offers convenience to travelers, with the international airport just a 30-minute drive away and the train station, featuring a high-speed rail line connecting to Samarkand, Bukhara, Khiva, and other significant cities in Uzbekistan, a mere 20-minute drive away. Additionally, the Badamzar metro station is conveniently located nearby, providing an efficient means of transportation throughout the city.

Within walking distance of Mövenpick Hotel Tashkent, guests will discover a multitude of attractions and amenities. An International Business Center and the country’s main exhibition venue, UzExpoCentre, are easily accessible, catering to business travelers and event attendees. Families traveling with children can create lasting memories at the nearby Tashkentland amusement park, where thrilling rides, an aquapark with multiple pools, and a serene Japanese garden featuring a picturesque lake and tea house await exploration.


Patrick Mendes, CEO Europe & North Africa at Accor, comments about Accor’s expansion strategy:

“Accor is continuously growing its network with the right product in the right markets and is proud to lay claim to the most diversified portfolio of hotel brands in the global hospitality industry. One of the key goals in our growth strategy is to develop in the most popular travel destinations for tourists and business travelers around the world.”

The tourism infrastructure of Uzbekistan is actively developing, and we are confident that the opening of Mövenpick Hotel Tashkent will become a sought after destination for international travelers and residents, who will appreciate the brand’s Swiss heritage in the heart of Tashkent.”

Director of InterHotel LLC, Sardor Malikov, talks excitedly about Mövenpick Hotel Tashkent’s transformation under Accor’s partnership:

“The signing of this agreement with Accor is a significant step for the entire team of our hotel complex. Today, many social and economic reforms are being carried out in Uzbekistan, including the creation of the necessary conditions for increasing the potential of domestic and inbound tourism. All of this helps to attract key international brands to the hospitality industry, and Mövenpick Hotel Tashkent is soon to become one of them. The rebranding of International Hotel Tashkent will strengthen our positioning in the hospitality market as well as increase the level of service and offers to provide the best experience to our guests and opportunities for holding conferences and events of various levels.”

Mövenpick Hotel Tashkent, set to undergo an exciting transformation, will showcase a range of enticing features and amenities for its guests.
