luggage storage during the day

I will arrive at Samarkand airport very early in the morning and will be taking the train to Tashkent later on that evening. (I'm spending the day exploring Samarkand.) Is there a place where I can store my luggage in the city? Are they open early in the morning?

Otherwise, I'm thinking I can contact a hotel to rent a room for the day?

Thanks!

In most of the former soviet countrys you have a luggage storage in the train stations. They are cheap and safe. I don't remember Samarkands train station, but I would give it a try. You need your ticket to enter the train stations in Uzbekidtan.
If that's not working, I would just go to a nearby backpacker hostel and ask if you can leave your stuff there (maybe for a small tip). I don't think you need to book a room.
