The Abbasi’s main building was once the caravanserai of the Madraseh-ye Chahar Bagh; arranged around a huge garden of ponds and towering cedars, and with a view of the madraseh's lovely dome beyond, this is a very special place to stay. Unfortunately, the same can’t be said for the characterless new building on the eastern side of the central garden courtyard.
Hotel facilities include a cosy traditional restaurant, a welcoming coffee shop, a business centre, craft shops, and an indoor pool, sauna and gym. Breakfast is served on the galley floor of the main restaurant, ringed about with gorgeous murals, while dinner is served in the main mirrored hall below. With a sweeping staircase, extravagant chandeliers and piano music, you can almost forgive the average food. No low-season discounts offered.
