The relatively high-class Bahman Hotel tries a little too hard to be colourfully grand but is comfortable despite the road noise; it’s 200m west of Shahrdari Sq. Around 300m east of the same square, Miras Ferhangi has a list of registered 'suites' (private homestay-style apartments); a few signs near their office give owners' phone numbers to call if you can cope with spoken Farsi.
