Lonely Planet review
Built in the 1930s, the Park is Herat’s oldest hotel – Robert Byron stayed here while writing The Road to Oxiana . It’s a cavernous, colonial-style place complete with creaky beds and overstuffed chairs, and surrounded by pine trees. All rooms are en suite . The hotel was being used mainly as a wedding hall when we visited. Full of potential, it just needs a little love (and money) spent on its upkeep.
Our independent authors have visited Park Hotel and selected this as one of our recommended hotels in Herat.
