Lonely Planet review
Dad is not named for anyone’s father, though as the brainchild of an 84-year-old patriarch it could be called ‘great granddad’. The 54 spacious, modern and well-equipped rooms are reasonably stylish, though there is not much natural light and, well, they don’t feel as real as the genuinely old places. Still, they’re good value, especially when you can take a dip in the sparkling underground pool (women AM, men PM).
Our independent authors have visited Dad Hotel and selected this as one of our recommended hotels in Yazd.
