Nice hotel with lots of resturants selections. The room I stayed in was facing the swimming pool with nice views of vegetation. But my friends who thier room was facing the street complained about the traffic noise eventhough they stayed at the 8th floor. I also suggest some improvments in the rooms especially the lightning and furniture. The staff were... More

First, this is one of the biggest hotel in Tehran. Be aware there are two buildings they call them "west tower and east tower" I have stayed in west tower which was the "not renovated one". What I now is the other one was renovated already. West tower rooms are terrible, old dated from 70's. Furniture is old, mini bar... More

I stayed two nights in Esteghlal during my business trip. Hotel is probably old Crowne Plaza or Hyatt. Rooms are bit worn out and housekeeping is not doing great job e.g. they didn't empty trash bins. First day I had two bath towels in my bath room and next day just one. Wifi is not reliable and the speed is... More

Spent 3 night recently on business trip and this was my 3rd time in this hotel. The rooms in the eastern tower are expensive than the other tower where I stayed earlier. The rooms in the eastern towers are bit modern so far the furniture, aircon, interiors are concerned, but not up to the mark of 5 star rating. Wi-fi... More

i spent a night at Esteghlal during a recent bike ride in Iran. I was given to understand that this is one of the few highly rated hotels in Tehran. The location is good, as it allowed me to get on the highway and leave the city the next morning quite quickly. However once inside the hotel, there wasn't anything... More

Based on other reviews I wasn't expecting much of this hotel and, to be fair, was pleasantly surprised by the quality of the room. Not luxury by any stretch, but clean, relatively spacious and comfortable. The wi-fi was really iffy but I expected that. Amenities (soaps, shampoos, etc) were spartan, but, again, expected. The breakfast is fairly comprehensive and not... More
