I have stay there 1 night, so no so much information. The hotel is good for me, but we have to think that we are in Iran, with a blockage exterieur. So, for me the opinnion is good on bed, wifi, food,... anything.

We had two rooms and stayed one one week in this supposedly luxury hotel. While the location is not bad and the view from the rooms on the mountain side is nice, there isn't much to say about the rooms or service. Even the breakfast is awful. Rooms seem old and frankly speaking terribly run down and ugly. Once upon... More

I stayed in this hotel as I heard it is a good one, but seems the definition of a 5 star hotel does not apply here except the price. Rooms were clean, but old , I suggest if you like to have a better room, stay in new tower ( eastern tower). not all he staff speak English and I... More

This is a hotel with a nice potential ability of being an exclusive one but it is not now! It is located in a nice place in Tehran northern part. Good view and building. Staff are not very friendly and breakfast is mediocre. Belding and facilities are old but enough for a business trip.

The building and the location is nice. The breakfast is quite good. But the friedlyness of the staff, mainly at the reception, the cashier etc give you the feeling that they are the king and you are the beggar. They are acting like the staff in the governmental owned hotels in Hungary and Tchecoslowakia before the fall of the iron... More

The only thing I liked about this hotel was the pianist who played in the lobby the last evening we were here. First of all, the process of booking hotels is so backwards. We booked the hotel through an agency and when we got there we wanted to be upgraded to the newer tower but they said they couldn't take... More

Due to 3 simultaneous exhibition in Tehran the hotel was full; no proper accountability by... More

Stayed 4 days for business. Hotel structure is very old, but rooms quite clean. Nice view in general. Breakfast not well organized, did not try the restaurant. For business purposes can be ok, but to get to the city center the traffic can be a big issue

This was my first trip to Tehran. I didn't know what to expect and have let myself go with the flow. Our hosts had organised the accommodation and we stayed at the Parsian Esteghlal Hotel. I believe it's the old Hilton Tehran. The building is very old and not well maintained. The service is very poor. The ambiance is depressing.... More
