“The best one in Bandar Abbas”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 1, 2013

It was a business trip to this city. It's considered the largest hotel in southern Iran. The first impression is quite good. Lobby area is large and impressive with some natural looking flowers on the entrance. You can't find a single molecule of dirt here and every small piece of furniture and decor are thoroughly cleaned. The area can be considered as a classic 4 Star hotel. Receptionist people are well dressed and polite. I can't comment on their language abilities because we spoke Persian to them. Lobby area has a shopping passage too. A huge coffee shop is there too this area is connected to a mezzanine floor where the free internet kiosks and offices are located. There are 3 Huge restaurants on the first floor which serve nice local and traditional foods in a professional manner in spotless and crack-less cutlery. Kudos! to the chef and rest of the cooks and washers. The only objectionable matter are the carpets in the restaurants, which are old and dirty.
Elevators connecting the floors are small, old and badly lit. The passage leading to the rooms are carpeted in dark maroon, with the walls matching the carpet. Because of the color and the dim light you won't find any dirt or spot in this area. It can be rated as 3 stars. Key cards for the rooms are blank with no sign of the hotel and the room No's are handwritten on a small sticker on the card. Entering the room, you find yourself in 1990's. The good side of the rooms: well cleaned, spotless furniture and cutlery, no sign of dust and queen sized single beds.(which was good for me)
The bad side: Every other thing looks old, TV, beds, room style and the darkness. A/C was noisy and the rooms smell strange when you enter the first time and there are damps on some walls.When I uncovered my bed which was absolutely covered in a 70's style the bed cover was full of strange spots, The bed sheet was clean but seemed quite old because you could see the mattress under it. The blanket was too thin and felt uncomfortable. The bathroom was clean but really old. You can't find any dirt on the basin but the tub was in a shabby condition with signs of cracks every where in it. It couldn't be used for relaxed bath. Shampoo and body wash were of a better quality than the rest of the kit but still can't be considered as 5 stars. Towels were absolutely clean but really worn-out. The bathroom can't be rated more than 2 stars.
My experience in room No. 759 was like this. It did have a view to the sea but you must struggle to see it with that angled, unreachable balcony of the room. Maybe some others differ, but I can't rate this hotel more than 3 stars on the whole.
Note: This is the best hotel in the Bandar Abbas area

ok first i want to talk about service , in general its ok , i remember my friend asked for chines chicken they gave him mixed fish. they cant speak English OR Arabic except 1 girl in reception she is so polite i remember her name is zara, i stayed there for 2 weeks i don't like the room i lived in room 738 on the 7th floor to be honest the staff who work in lobby are soo nice .. secondly food in general its not good they have only kebab , hotel like 5 stars should have a great food , but they do not have . IT IS THE BEST IN BANDER ABBAS they should have at less some EU dishes , i would say Olympic hotel in Tehran way better than Hormoz .

First of all, the service and the people are very nice. Typical Iranian. Very friendly staff and the Restaurant is also very nice. The rooms are tidy and the Hotel has a very european standard. The Computer in the lounge are very old and dont work very well. So if you wanna use them to check your mails it will be alright but thats it.
The location of the Hotel is good, although there isnt much to see in Bandar Abbas anyways. In the Summer its simply too hot and the beaches are very dirty. You cant go wrong with staying there.

My husband and I together with two of our friends were in Hotel Hormoz for 2 nights. Although it may not seem as a 5 star hotel but it's the best in bandar Abbas and even the nearby islands like Qeshm Island. Qeshm Island is a really beautiful place but the hotels are not so good there. So, we resided in Hormoz Hotel and went to Qeshm by cruise. It was so nice experience.
Anyhow, the standard of hotel stars in Iran may not be equal to international standards but Hormoz hotel is clean, convenient and good overall. Besides, the hotel enclosure & outside areas are so beautiful.
So, go to Hotel Hormoz and have a very nice & enjoyable trip.

Hormoz hotel is one of the two so-called 5 star hotels in Bandar Abbas! We were a group of 15 people and stayed there for 2 nights. According to their website the hotel has sea view rooms with extra charge. I booked this room. But on arrival surprisingly I found out that this hotel is about 15 minute walking distance from the beach and while they charged me more for sea view room I had to take out my head out of the window and look to left and then I could see a part of sea!!!

Don’t spend your money for lunch and dinner in this hotel. It’s too expensive and quality is not for a 5 star hotel.

The characteristic of room was ok but not for a 5 star hotel. Staff are very kind and helpful as most of the people in Bandar Abbas are.
