Guesthouses and B&Bs
The Abbasi’s main building was once the caravanserai of the Madraseh-ye Chahar Bagh, and it has atmosphere in spades. Unfortunately, the same can’t be said for the characterless new building on the eastern side of the central garden courtyard...
Artist and musician Maziar Ale Davoud has almost single-handedly saved Garmeh from the fate meted out to many small desert communities, restoring a number of its mud-brick buildings as homes for members of his family and opening a guesthouse, backpack...
Chamran Grand Hotel
The city views from the rooms and upper-floor restaurant of this recently opened five-star hotel are quite spectacular and the location next to the tree-lined Ghasr-e Dasht Gardens is nearly as impressive, making the hotel’s distance from the main cit...
It’s not often that we award a hotel 10 out of 10 on our personal rating system, but in our opinion that’s what this gorgeous boutique hotel deserves...
Niayesh Boutique Hotel
The city’s only traditional hotel is located in the heart of the old quarter and is a fantastic choice...
Located in the upmarket tree-lined area around the Azadegan Gardens, this huge government-run place has 195 rooms in two buildings: the older garden hotel and the much-more-desirable new front wing...
Silk Road Hotel
Two minutes’ walk from the Masjed-e Jameh (Jameh Mosque), the Silk Road’s mix of traditional courtyard setting, delicious food, laid-back vibe and fair prices attracts backpackers, flashpackers and even the odd ambassador...
Tak Taku Guesthouse
Owner English-speaking Mohammad Jalali and his family are eager to offer guests a taste of the real Iran, and do so with great charm and warmth...
This impeccably run place offers three-star rooms at one-star prices. Rooms at the rear were renovated two years ago, are quiet and have Western toilets; those at the front overlook the busy street and have squat toilets...
Located on a hill above Abyaneh, this multi-storey place is the only hotel and restaurant in town. It’s taken years to complete and the finished product is very comfortable...
Ali Sadr Hotel
Ali Sadr Hotel has a decent restaurant and reasonable rooms with bathrooms. Out of season prices are negotiable and the location would make it a delightfully peaceful getaway and possible trekking base.
Amir Kabir Hostel
For years the Amir Kabir has been Esfahan’s backpacker base and, for lack of competition, it still is...
Amir Kabir Hotel
Way out near Fin Gardens, the overly large Amir Kabir claims to have had a makeover but if that’s true then they should be asking for a refund. The rooms are still tired and overpriced, though discounts are usually possible.
There’s nothing fancy about this four-storey place, but it’s clean and comfortable enough for the money. Rooms have hard beds, satellite TV and noisy air-conditioning units...
Built by the last shah in 1953, this atmospheric hotel immediately next to Persepolis is a wonderful place to stay overnight or enjoy a meal. Some of the 15 rooms overlook the site and all have slightly worn but clean original furnishings...
Overpriced rooms, some without bathroom, around a courtyard. Communal kitchen. No English is spoken.
With its front-row spot overlooking Astane Sq, the Aria’s rooms, some with six beds, are good value, especially in low season. Popular with Arab pilgrims.
Aryo Barzan Hotel
The Aryo is a favourite among business travellers for its intelligent, smiling and extravagantly coiffed service, well-maintained surrounds and central location. The small but spotlessly clean rooms have small bathrooms and satellite TV...
Well-run, clean and comfortable, the Azady is a good choice despite being located on one of Esfahan’s busiest streets. Front rooms are double-glazed, but we suggest requesting one at the rear of the building to ensure a good night’s sleep...
Simple, clean rooms. Only the triple has attached bathroom. Secure parking for overlanders.
Bekhradi Historical Residence
This quiet, modest-sized khan-e sonnati (traditional house) is the real Safavid-style deal; five fully restored rooms, some with bathrooms, some not. All are set around two garden courtyards. It’s beside the Masjed-e Dawazeh-Noh.
Bushehr Tourist Hotel
Rising like a modern-day ziggurat out of central Bushehr, this is easily the best place in town. Most of the semi-luxurious rooms have Gulf views, the restaurant is reasonable and rooms on the second floor have wifi.
Bushehr Tourist Inn
Great location, pity about the rooms/price ratio. Your last resort.
