“Iranshar is a great hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2012

We landed in Tehran and stayed here for two nights. Great location and facilities. Rooms are quiet and clean but small. It seems to be suited to Iranian business travellers. But good for tourists too. Staff have good English.

Easy walking to shops and sights. Metro station not too far away.

Breakfast great, and restaurant ok (only).

This is a great place to start trip in Iran. Would recommend and stay here again.

Room Tip: Our room was quiet even though it overlooked road.

I am a california resident and have traveled to a few countries in Europe and the America's. One would have to compare this hotel with other facilities available in Tehran. I found the room very clean, staff friendly and polite and helpful. The breakfast was ample and very adequate. Please do not compare with hotels in US. I took my laptop to Iran but returned it unused because I always went to the computer room where there were three desktops and a printer. I could easily fax and receive faxes. As for the proce, I stopped at several other hotels in my two weeks of stay anf this hotel offered the best bang for the buck. Remodels and renovations are almost non-existant in Iran this is why most of the reviews point to it being old. Indeed I remember this hotel from 40 years ago. I recommend it if you want to stary close to business centers. Major buses and subway are very close. Only eating facility close by is a pizza place but a fancy expensive restaurant was a block away.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with window opening on the side alley.

we paid about $70 for a room with two twin beds. It's not luxurious and has the feel of a 70's-era hotel that's in need of an update. But it's clean, friendly, well-located, and has all the basics covered including three free internet terminals just near the entrance. It's not far from the old US embassy and close to the metro at Ferdosi square as others have mentioned which is handy.

Breakfast was OK, nothing like what you'd get at a Western hotel, but it was fine. We found it to be a pretty standard breakfast served at all the hotels we stayed at during our trip. It was more or less the exact same selection, every day, of cucumbers, tomatoes, canned fruit, yogurt, pita, boiled eggs, sausage, toast, tea, and Nescafe.

Right after arrival we got an unwelcome feeling. The receptionists keeps asking about our reservation. While we told them our names and our agent name, they didn't seem to understand and keeps asking for reservation. After telling them our nationality they got it and arranged our room. We didn't felt a sign of friendliness though. The same feeling we got throughout our stay.
The overall quality of the room is nice and clean. The location is quite central, not to far off ferdoosi metro station. Breakfast is decent.
Most important, DO NOT use their laundry! It's amazingly expensive. We spent $160 on a single bag. Ridiculous. Their only reason was that it was an express laundry, while we didn't asked for one.

We stayed for only a night in Iranshahr, but it was worth it. Staff is friendly and speak English, it's in a central location and the rooms are quite big. It's a bit more chique than you would expect from a three-star hotel, but then again, so is the price (a double is little under $100 if you don't bargain).

What's especially great about this hotel is the free and fast wireless internet. I'm typing this review over it in fact, and that has been difficult in other hotels in Iran.

Unfortunately, in contrast to ticket prices at major attractions, maybe I am missing something but the duel pricing for hotels appears to remain. Iranshahr Hotel is described in Lonely Planet is “reliable”. Having stayed there twice now (ie: stayed there, travelled around Iran a bit, returned for two nights before departing Iran), I’m not sure what that means. First time I was not told breakfast was included in the rate. I only discovered this the second time when I wondered in. Location is OK (20~25,000 tomans to the IKA airport which is between 75~90 minutes drive away, unless you can haggle it down: 6~8,000 to Mehrabad) Quite frankly, most of the reasonable (ie: medium) levels of accommodation are in the middle of Tehran, which coincides where most of the torust attractions are (central/southern Tehran). The old US Embassy is literally up the block: be careful taking photos.
That said, attractions aside, the best bit of Tehran, by far, are the northern parts. Better air, friendlier people, better food options (there’s not a lot around the hotel but you can’t blame the hotel for that). Getting here from this hotel (most are around the same few blocks actually) poses challenges, especially since the subway – which maps indicate is complete – is, well, not. But I digress..
... the wireless internet a definite advantage but bandwidth appeared v narrow (it was very, very slow). Cable TV has 100’s of channels, approximately 2 of which are in English. Don’t bother asking for “non smoking room” either. The doormen were very friendly/always ready with a smile, which made returning a pleasant experience. Front desk was OK, but English was limited (that doesn’t faze me, but it might others)
