Lonely Planet review
Owned and operated by the crew from the Silk Road Hotel, the Orient is set around two high-sided courtyards and offers a range of rooms (some with air-cond) with hard beds and an attractive six-bed dorm with shared bathroom (squat toilet only). The rooftop Marco Polo Restaurant has a great view over the Masjed-e Jameh but is only open when tour groups are staying at the hotel. The group’s third hotel, the Oasis, is in a less-attractive building behind the Bogheh-ye Sayyed Roknaddin and offers cheap rooms with bathroom (Western sit-down toilet).
Our independent authors have visited Orient Hotel and selected this as one of our recommended hotels in Yazd.
