I ended up in this hotel after reading the reviews on here, which was a refreshing thing after a not-so-good hotel experience in Shiraz.
The Reception ladies were all extremely helpful, especially the one with blond short hair, writing phrases in Farsi so I could easily go about my business around the city, sharing her pistachios and generally being nice.
The restaurant staff; however, were a little bit not bothered about their customers, as was the doorman (there was no real need for one if you ask, though it is a nice touch!)
The room, albeit small (I was surprised when I got a single bed, even though I booked as a single traveler it’s now a days rare….), was very nicely decorated and extremely clean as it was the rest of the hotel. Toilet was also small but nice and amenities good too!
Nice breakfast too! Very nice actually. Please do try the Aloe Vera in syrup. I wish I could have taken a lot with me!!! Nicely freshly made omelets and a good selection of breads. The coffee wasn’t very nice, but it seems in this country they’re used to Nescafe as they even have in ice-cream flavours!!
They also have two different areas for dining: The restaurant in the ground floor and a coffee bar in the mezzanine level –here the food is the same as in the in-room menu and at the same prices. Also is not much different from the restaurant downstairs but the prices in the latter are at least double! Mind you once converted into USD still is very good value!
Oh, and I almost forgot: there’s a pianist playing every night during dinner. A Fantastic touch and nice to hear good music whilst dining, especially in one’s own company.
