Hotel Persepolis
Ranked #8 of 24 Shiraz B&B and Inns
Reviewed 9 October 2010

Stayed three nights (reservation made by agency) in this self-declared 4 ½ star hotel, but by Western standards this hotel would get a maximum of 3 stars.

Hotel has a modern face from the outside and there is no historical substance, apart from its name.

Location is remote from downtown area (20 minutes car drive to Afif-abad Street); the only benefit is that it is close to the famous “Hafez tomb”.

Mainly domestic businessmen stay here and I only saw few tourists.

If you don’t like dark-and-thick-room-carpets, avoid this place. At least they provide a pair of plastic shoes to avoid skin contact.

Safe box worked, but is quite complicated to handle (alarm sound gets easily activated). Foreign TV stations included CNN only. Hotel operates an indoor swimming pool, which I did not use, that is reserved for women until 7 pm and afterwards for men. WIFI is free in the lobby but did not work in the rooms.

What disturbed me most was that I only had little sleep, mainly due to annoying analogue room-clock ticking, plus a badly-isolated window.

Reception desk can be described as brisk but helpful.

Breakfast is a simple affair, with only sausages and fried/boiled eggs served as warm plates. Better to avoid it and go for a healthier alternative outside.

There are only two very basic kebab restaurants within walking distance, otherwise you need to take a cab to get to good restaurants, such as “Shater Abbas” or “Sharzeh” Restaurant.

For a price of 92 EUR per night this hotel is definitely overpriced. According to two different local tourist guides the Homa Hotel or Chamran Grand Hotel are currently better hotel alternatives in Shiraz, even if they are a bit more expensive. Lots of new hotels to be opened soon in Shiraz, so watch out before booking.
