We were booked into this property by a tour company. It has a prime location between the Imam Square and the river. There the advantage ends. To judge by our room, the place is completely inadequate. The illumination was hopeless; our room's window faced a covered lane and the internal lighting was dim. There was no comfortable chair to sit on and read, not that the lighting would have made this possible anyway. Reading in bed was impossible. The decor was atrocious; the bedspreads, carpet and curtains all competing in tired brothel-reds and gold. One can expect little in the way of cleanliness in most Iranian hotels so this confirmed the presumption. The bathroom was the only satisfactory feature. The front desk staff have a casual and take-it-or-leave-it attitude. Our guide told us that the hotel is owned by the government, which perhaps explains the problems. By far the worst of seven hotels we stayed in.
