The Fahadan hotel is in a nicely kept old Yazdi style building (mudbrick) centrally located in the old city of Yazd. The hotel has a fascintating courtyard for drinking tea and relaxing. Other interesting features include a windtower (badgir) and a functioning underground aquaduct (qanat) in the cellar.

The room we had was nice and roomy, however the bathroom was a bit clumsy (you could not stand up in the shower but had to sit in the bathtub due to low ceiling). Also there were no windows in the room, but this I think is standard in the traditional houses of Yazd. The aircondition worked well and the room did not feel stuffy.

The hotel has free wifi in the courtyard.

The hotel is in a nice old building, but buildings don't make a hotel, people do.

It's a misnomer to call it in any way a "museum" , better stated would be the Fahadan Bric a Brac Hotel. The building is indeed nice, but could have been refurbished better.

The rooms were simple and were OK, nothing special. Sheets were ill fitting, which led to poor sleep and whilst beds were made daily, the room was not and rubbish from previous occupants was still there when we checked in. Air conditioning was very good.

But the Service, good god, was simply dreadful. A lot of young people, who hadn't a clue what they were doing. This peaked when we asked to stay an extra night, having stayed 4 already (it was Eid and we had no choice). They said they were full and we had no option but to move 150KM away and even helped us book a hotel there. The next day at checkout, a couple wandered in from the street and were given a room. We were overcharged, both on prior agreed room rate and for an item we didn't have. They corrected both.

There are now many traditional hotels around, both cheaper and far better. I can't think of any one reason to stay here, save there are no other hotels available. The Dad Hotel is the same price and light years ahead of here.

This hotel is an excellent place to stay in Yazd, beautiful, romantic and u feel u r back in time for centuries. Each room is decorated different and unique with real vintage furniture. The rooms have romantic persian names, the staff are friendly and helpful. You can enjoy the Persian style cafe with hookah and traditional tea and sweets. Originally it was an ancient house turned to hotel. The hotel's restaurant is among Yazd's best diners.

Room Tip: you can choose the royal suit which u can feel u're king and queen but the room is so close to t...

This hotel Fahadan in Yazd is an old house that has been remodeled and is a classic way of staying in Yazd. I personally had some problems in the hotel, but overall its acceptable. The main problem is bad management, but the people there are friendly and helpfull. So that compensates a little the fact that they dont know what there doing. Also the location is good, right in the middle of the old town which is absolutley amazing.

We (family of 4 with 2 sons of 14 and 20) Stayed in Fahadan for new year vacation. This was our first experience with traditional hotels. I can say it was very good and totally different.
Location is superb for historical visits, atmosphere both in hotel and around was really good. a walk around hotel area will give you a very good sense of historical Yazd.
Fahadan is member of Mehr group of hotels, and Karvansalar agency sells packages for these groups. in our package, you could stay with any of hotels in the group, and have your meals in any other one, which provides you both the flexibility and variety.
Inside Fahadn, like most historical houses, there is a central area and rooms are located around this yard. each room has a name, as in Iranian architecture every room around main yard had names.
Every wall in public areas of the hotel, has some historical element which shows a part of history.
People come to just visit Fahadan as a museum and have a walk through yards and roof.
Rooms are relatively small, and I feel the best experience would be for 2 person per normal room.
Bath and toilets are clean and even in new year time, when everything goes crazy, the service was very good.
Staff are friendly and very helpful.
Air condition is good and works.
Inside Fahadan, only breakfast is served, but there a traditional "public bath" near by, (Abol-Maali) which is rebuilt as a restaurant for Mehr group of hotels including Fahadan.
Do not expect much luxury, just relax and enjoy the history.
Thanks Fahadan :-)

Room Tip: More than 2 adults might not be very comfortable in one room.

It is a great and very beautiful traditional hotel that is located in old part of the Yazd city, opposite to the Alexander prison. It is also a Hotel Museum. It is said this house was commissioned 150 to 200 years ago by Aqa - sheikh- Mehdi Arab. His family later adopted the name of Tehrani and from then on this house became known as the Tehrani- ha's house .
