I understand the Iranian hotel industry has been having deep economic issues, but please do not fool the travellers that go to this hotel, rated as a 4 star; which is more like a 3 and a half -- or may be just 3!
The staff is friendly and speaks very good English, nevertheless even at the 2 star guesthouses that I stayed in Yazd and Shiraz the Internet was working more properly. This was a huge complain on behalf of other guests as well, so if the hotel really would like to improve their status as that of a ' 4 star hotel' they should immediately fire their internet company and get a better one.
The rooms are ok, large, spacious and have a decent TV system -- for Iranian standards -- but once again, let's not forget that the Iranians -- since they lack tourists -- are and will do their best to please you, so it is quite important to understand this as well.
