I heard good things about this hotel from two of my tour guides before I stayed. I think it is more of a 2.5 star hotel than a 3 or 4 star. The rooms are clean, but there is barely any natural light in the rooms. The hallways look like they are straight out of a motel from the 60s. Rooms are spacious and clean, but need upgrading. The bed sheets were so thin that I was afraid I would rip them just from sleeping on them.
Staff are very nice, helpful, and polite....unlike the staff at Abbasi hotel who are probably the most rude people in all of Iran. The staff at Setareh helped me with directions and restaurant recommendations. The location is perfect, within a 10 minute walk to the Naqsh-e-Jahan square and close to many shops.
I still think it is better than most hotels in Esfahan from what I've heard. The restaurant on site has some of the best food in the city.
