This is one of the top hotels in the hotels in the city. It should not be judged by international standard 5* hotels. Rooms Dated, but comfortable. Rooms are small and are a throwback to another time: heavy bed covers and 1980's curtains and carpets. Rooms have a TV with one English channel, BBC news. Bathrooms are comfortable with some... More

I didn't have a bad time here... it's just that it is not entirely 5-star. Nothing to complain about really. Friendly service, helpful when booking taxis, good breakfasts, good area. Had minor problems getting clean towels one day... Really, nothing to complain about, but nothing to write home about either. You get better exchange rates at the shops in the... More

This hotel is one of only a handful of 5 star hotels in Tehran but really it is no more than 3 stars. The reception was not bad, the rooms have been renovated recently but still for about USD 200 it is really small, under equipped and noisy. The sheets on the bed are coarse and don't allow a great...

This is a regular asian government 5* hotel and I disagree with the previous review about sanctions -- Tehran had big banners for selling the latest gizmos and phones and sanctions do not seem to have any impact on the luxury lifestyle with latest cars zipping around the town. It is a decent hotel and the new wing is far... More

When you go to a country which has been under sanctions so many years you should lower your expectations. If you do that you are able to see the positive sides everywhere. By European standards this hotel would be somewhere between 2 or 3 stars but I want to give it 4 - if you choose the new wing, the... More

Extremely good check in. Nice lobby, coffee area. Efficient, but not smiling staff! I found out later that the staff are government employees! There is one guy in reception, Avad I think is his name, who really needs to get an attitude change course, He speaks to customers as if they were peasants!So no wonder they cannot smile! The rooms... More

I last stayed at this hotel in 1967, so was interested to see the changes after 46 years. The view of the Elborz Mountains remains superb. Access from the airport is good via Chamran Expressway. Check-in was prompt and helpful. There is the original west tower, a newer east tower and a never finished third tower. Rooms are comfortable, warm... More

I want to give it 2 1/2 stars. And the 1/2 star is only because there is a great breakfast arrangement. The hotel is old. The lobby is nice and clean but the rooms are not. The rooms are old, dark and not very well kept. They are spacious so that is a plus. The pool and gym for the... More
