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

I usually do not compare hotels, but this time I can say, that for the same price better take Parsian Azadi Hotel. West wing is really outdated and needs quick renovation. Rooms are still in 1970-es, but in my room WiFi worked stable on around 560 kb/s, it has 32 inch LED LCD TV, water heater was there. What hotel... More

Clean, comfortable, quiet. Our room (605) was large but a bit rundown compared to the Espinas, where we also stayed (However, the shower did not leak onto the bathroom floor, which is a problem at the Espinas). There was only one available plug point to charge our paraphernalia, the room was somewhat dark since there’s no overhead lighting and two... More

This used to be the best hotel Tehran had to offer. Time has moved on, yet the hotel remained behind. Far from 5-star service, and attitude of hotel staff needing major adjustments. Better off going to Azadi Hotel, which offers international-standard 5-star service. Calling the Business Center to resolve the issue of no wifi in my room, the reply was... More

Good hotel in Teheran. I was in the west tower. It is a 4 star, but I my opinion it could be considered a 3 stars. The room was quite old, even if a little noisy in the night when the window was open. The bathroom was ok.The staff is ok. Wi-fi with no good signal in the rooms, but... More

Far from the best 5-star hotel I have ever stayed at, but considering the location in the world I think a true 5-star rating might be unobtainable? Still, should I ever go back to Tehran I would definitely not have any problems with returning to this particular hotel again. I stayed on the 13th floor in the East tower with... More

despite the printed copy of Reservation, on my arrival there was no room available! I've been placed in old room quite stinky! With telephone not working and TV set locked. Paying full official tariff (while via travel agents, the same room cost 35% less. Asking every single day to settle the problems, at the reception, I have received a lot... More

I was a guest at the same place 4 and 6 years ago. Nothing changed. The décor in the rooms and the entrance is getting old fashioned, but the rooms are still nice and clean. Service depends on the staff you address to. Some were very nice, some did not show much willingness to spend time with you. The bar... More

This is a nice hotel but I would consider it basic by world standards. The decor is old and worn. The staff are fun and friendly. I did not come to Tehran for luxury hotels so that was no big deal for me.

rooms are Dated, but comfortable but the bed were too soft. Rooms are small and are a throwback to another time: heavy bed covers and curtains and carpets. Rooms have a TV with one English channel, BBC news. Bathrooms are comfortable with some useful amenities including detergent. Be warned there is no kettle , cups , iron and iron board... More
