Traditional Kohan Hotel
Ranked #4 of 15 Hotels in Yazd
Reviewed 26 August 2014 via mobile

Yazd is a city that is very touristic by Iranian standards and most westerners will be staying in a cluster of backpacker hostels around the mosque in the old quarter

Kohan hotel is set in a nicely renovated house but has average breakfast, uncaring staff and the worst rooms we had whilst in Iran. Mind you we did not complain whilst we were there but would book elsewhere if we could go back in time

Stayed: August 2014, travelled as a couple

The hotel is situated in one of the old parts of the town with good access once you leave all the small alley ways.

We arrived at 5am to a closed hotel and had to knock and wake the receptionist to check in which we had warned in advance. We were then told breakfast is served from 7:30 to 8:30 and had to wake up to catch breakfast.

We later found out breakfast is actually served between 7:30 and 11:30 plus they would have arranged a late breakfast as we arrived late but the receptionist failed to arrange this.

The rooms are extremely small and have enough space for 2 very small single beds.

In Iran hotels are obliged to have there prices in view with rates clearly displayed, as this is only in farsi a lot of people do not understand it and are charged whatever rate the receptionist feels like giving. A twin room as of August 2014 is 690,000 Rials as stated on the chart but we were charged 900,00. when i questioned this they came up with silly excuses that they have to charge a tax which is not true.

So make sure you check the prices of any hotel you visit in the lobby behind the reception.

Stayed: August 2014

Like the historical sights that surround it, the Kohan is showing its age. It's a place full of character, the building is wonderful but the sands from the desert have blown in and no-one seems particularly keen to sweep them out. I stayed in the dorm which is pretty neglected - it's a few notches above squalid but it could definitely do with some TLC, beginning with a good old clean up. I'd till recommend the place though as it's reasonably priced - 30,000 toman for a dorm room - the breakfast is excellent, the dorm has AC (Whoop!), the staff are friendly and eager to help and there are gorgeous views from the rooftop.

Room Tip: Try before you buy when taking a room. See what beds are available in the dorm - there are two parts...

This was a good sanctuary from the heat and dust of Yazd.

The room was rather small, but was clean, and the bed comfortable. The air conditioner was very noisy :-(.

The courtyard area is lovely, with fragrant plants and those wonderfully indulgent 'takts' (day beds). Make sure you go up on the roof to see the Yazd skyline.

Breakfast was fine, but I would have appreciated some fruit - there are all those watermelons in Iran after all!

There didn't appear to be a menu so we didn't eat there, going instead to the Silk Road for coffee and delicious curry, but I loved having the quiet and peaceful Kohan to return to.

In the old part of the town, which is the most atmospheric part of town to stay.

We booked ahead by phone. We were given a relatively small room away from the main courtyard, around a smaller courtyard which was nice as it was very quiet. The bathroom was very basic but good with both a western and iranian style toilet.

The restaurant is in the nice courtyard next to the big fountain; you can eat on regular chairs and tables or lie down on the iranian style beds around the fountain. A lovely place to spend a few hours lounging in the shade.
We had lunch here one day and the other day we had lunch in the Silk Road hotel, which wasn't as good.

The contact we had with the hotel receptionist and his brother was great! He reminded me of the energetic receptionist of the "Best Exotic Marigold Hotel"!!

Don't forget to visit the roof top for a great view over the old town.

It is a beautiful space, with two courtyards and fountains, a pleasant restaurant, and good professional staff. The rooftop has very nice view of the old town. Great value for money...................

This is a very good option if you want to stay in the heart of the old city Yazd. The hotel is traditional, that means it is the same like many years ago, with amazing, panoromaic view from the roof. It is really nice place and proper to heve some rest and escape from the heat. Rooms are a little basic but clean (unfortunally if you stay more then one night - nobody cleans your room or changes the towes). The breakfast is realy good and serving in fabulous surrounding. They offer also the good option to have a diner in the hotel - good and tasty food in reasonably price. The staf is friendly, lady in the front desk speak excellent english and is really helpfull, the man seems to be bored and is not interested in helping tourists with hotel or transport reservation. It is possible to arrange a car with driver to visit Chak Chak or det to the desert. Wifi is weak and slow, exremely, but free and allow to check emails.
