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...
Niayesh Boutique Hotel
The city’s only traditional hotel is located in the heart of the old quarter and is a fantastic choice...
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...
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...
Rooms in the new wing of this old-fashioned place are large, quiet and reasonably well equipped; those in the original building are similar but not quite as nice. The guys at reception are helpful and there’s a restaurant on the 1st floor.
The Esteghlal has long been popular with budgeteers but not, it must be said, for the quality of the small, boxy rooms. They’re adequate, but note that while all rooms with ‘bathrooms’ cost the same, some don’t have a toilet – look at several...
Hadish Apartment Hotel
The big apartments here are a bit austere but have fully equipped kitchens. They’re most appealing for the value and friendly staff, who at most times are happy to discount (rates were halved after about 10 seconds’ bargaining).
The ’70s-era Homa is showing its age and the rooms – and indeed some of the staff – look tired. But the location, restaurants, front-desk service and views over the city. The pool is men-only.
Good beds, fridge and squat toilets; clean relatively large rooms.
Jaam E Jam Apartment Hotel
The apartments here aren’t as good as those in the nearby Kakh Apartment Hotel, but the rooms in the Persepolis-inspired new wing are worth considering, particularly in winter when prices drop by up to 40%...
Kakh Apartment Hotel
Self-caterers will be very happy if they stay at this relatively new hotel, which offers quiet, good-sized apartments with well-equipped kitchen, satellite TV and bathroom with Western toilet. Wi-fi (lobby only) and internet cost US$1.80 per hour.
Old but reasonable value. Discounts are possible.
Deep in the old city, this mehmunsara in a 200-year-old building is the cheapest, most interesting hotel in town; note we didn’t say atmospheric...
Park Saadi Hotel
The Saadi is in a quiet location opposite lovely Bagh-e Jahan Nama. It’s solid three-star through and through, with large, bright rooms (some with wi-fi), a decent restaurant and experienced management.
Compact rooms, good beds, decent service.
Pars International Hotel
The owners of this four-star business hotel are politically conservative, so don’t expect foreign stations on the TV or any relaxation of dress codes...
Opened in 2006, this has modern-looking and well-equipped, if not huge, rooms. Service is enthusiastic and the pool can be ‘booked’ after 11pm. Discounts are available.
Boxy, noisy but clean rooms and shared bathrooms, lumpy beds.
This is a friendly, clean and well-maintained place with a manager who likes to chat and organise tours in equal measure (often together)...
Located on noisy Zand Blvd over the popular Haji Baba Restaurant, this place is only worth considering because of its prices, which are extremely reasonable...
Zand has ultra-basic, reasonably clean rooms with or without showers (toilets are shared). It’s popular with overlanders because it has (limited) courtyard parking, a kitchen for guests and a free washing machine.
