This lovely peaceful place in Kashan we warmly can recommend. The staff is very friendly and helped when ever needed. The traditionell house with nice clean rooms has an inside yard which is wonderful for a rest. We enjoyed delicious breakfast and always got some fresh tea or refreshing traditional cold drinks. The location is very good, close to the Highlights of Kashan, and very quit. Just a oasis in the town. Barbara and Jacqueline from Bern, Switzerland

Amazing traditional house and friendly staff, one of the best place I stayed in Iran. The room was very good, the bathroom nice and functional. Super quiet and very nicely decorated. It's walking distance from the main place, in front of the mosque and not even 10 minutes from the bazar.

Perhaps for Kashan with its limited accommodation facilities, this is one of the best available options.

But I arrived here at the end of my trip, having visited about a dozen of traditional houses and stayed in a couple of them. So I couldn’t help comparing Ehsan Guest House to the Iranian traditional hotels I’ve been to before. And this comparison wasn’t always in favour of Ehsan.

BOOKING AND CHECK-IN

Was fast and easy.

There’s no English web-site for the hotel, and the one for the House (in Farsi) is useless to the potential guests. I sent an e-mail at -- and received confirmation the very next day. The agreed price was USD 30, including breakfast. And though I actually stayed here 3 weeks later and sent no further e-mails, my reservation was duly kept and found immediately upon arrival.

Just like any other hotel in Iran, they keep your passport while you’re staying.

LOCATION

Is both tricky to find for a first timer and perfectly central to explore the city.

Ehsan is situated in the alley opposite the street leading to Agha Bozorg Mosque. From Kamal-ol-Molk Sq., drive a bit further down Fazel-e Naraghi Str. till you see the English sign for Ehsan Guest House by the right side. Turn from Fazel to the narrow alley, leave your car and walk straight ahead. The entrance to the guesthouse will be to your left, but there is no English sign on it.

Kashan main attractions – merchants’ historical houses – are in a short walking distance from here. And with the large English signs to each, they are easy to find in the city. Fin gardens, however, can only be reached by taxi.

THE HOUSE

Although charming, Ehsan shouldn’t be compared to the most remarkable Kashan historic houses – Ameriha, Abbasian, Tabatabai and Boroujerdi. It’s much smaller, much simpler, and has less sophisticated decoration in both exterior and interior.

Ehsan is listed on the touristy map available for free in Taj House (ask for one, if they don’t offer!). But I’d say its artistic value is hardly too high. So if you don’t stay here, just skip it, especially if you are short of time.

Its inner courtyard isn’t very spacious. There’s a pool in the middle of it, with a small fountain, and a few takhte’s situated by the pool in the shadow of some greenery. Another fabulous sitting space is on the roof terrace of the first floor, overviewing the courtyard; but there are no takhte’s up there, only tables with chairs. It’s lit by the sun during most of the day.

ROOMS AND SLEEPING QUALITY

There are several rooms in the house available for the guests’ accommodation, and they all seem to be different in terms of space and comfort.

I was offered a choice between two of them, and opted for the one on the second floor, even though it required short climbing up some steep stairs inside a narrow corridor to reach it. Not the best solution for anyone claustrophobic and/or with limited mobility.

Similar to all traditional houses I’ve been to in Iran, the room door gets closed with a padlock. Here in Ehsan it was the lower door; while the one directly to the room from the stairs had no second lock from the outside.

The room, although with a low vaulted ceiling, looked very nice and cosy. The floor was covered with several thick carpets; there were also some pillows on it to sit at. Two separate beds faced the wall with a small round window. Some amenities were available – a fridge, and an aircon (didn’t try it though), but no TV (didn’t need one, anyway).

Like in many traditional hotels, there was no wardrobe or closet in the room. Except wall niches, the second bed and the large pouf, there was nowhere to place your staff. Since I was here for one night, I didn’t take my luggage out of the car trunk, but for the backpack with most needful and valuable things.

Although I liked the room a lot, I must have spent my worst night in Iran here, all because of the terrible sleeping facilities.

The one who designed those beds seemed to had never slept in one! Even for me, the bed was short and narrow. The linen – but this was a problem in the entire country – was synthetic; I got small still tangible static charges every time I moved. The bed sheet was tiny, and I woke up on a bare mattress, because the sheet crumpled and moved down. The mattress was very uncomfortable – I could feel its structure with my every bone.

Though this is beyond the hotel powers, and I personally like the sound, can’t help mentioning that the calls for prayer are very well heard here.

BATHROOM

A relatively small room with a shower, a sink and a tiny shelf over it, but it had a European water closet, lots of toilet paper and even an automated air venting system.

The shower wasn’t in any way separated from the rest of the bathroom. But this was not a problem for me… because the water both in the sink and in the shower was icy cold!

Even though I normally do not use hot water at home, this was too cold even for me to take a shower properly. Huge downside.

BREAKFAST

The breakfast was served in the courtyard, on tachte’s by the pool. An aged non-smiling lady brought trays to each guest from the kitchen nearby. Set of meals was typical: delicious and abundant flat bread, some cheese and sour cream, jam and honey, and a pot of tea (the usual Lipton teabag).

If you are a coffee maniac like me, DO take your own coffee to Iran! Otherwise you will get nothing here but a Nescafe instant coffee stick. It felt like heaven to enjoy natural coffee brought from home. And it’s easy to find boiled water in Iran even outside the hotels – you will see traditional samovars in front of many street and/or bazaar shops.

RECOMMENDED?

Considering limited choice of accommodation in Kashan these days, I would recommend Ehsan Guest House. However, even though I’d love to stay in Kashan longer, I was happy I didn’t have to sleep here one more night.

Probably the nicest place I stayed in Iran. The garden is beautiful, with pomegranate trees surrounding a central fountain. The dorm was tastefully decorated and excellent value. Could not recommend it more.

I came here after two days of Tehran and the Ehsan Guesthouse was an oasis of peace and quiet.

Really nice people managing the guesthouse, speak excellent English and they have books to read!! You can ask them anything and they will help, like call the train station to check on trains and tickets.

Also very fine kitchen with good food. Unfortunately didn't have everything on menu but both vegetarian dishes were excellent - including big plate full of rice.

Breakfast is simple: tea, egg, bread, cream cheese, butter and jam.

Dormitory is hidden back through a tunnel with three beds. Quite alright considering the price (500.000 rial including breakfast and wifi for one night)
(Hot) Shower and toilet (sit down) are great

this hostel is established in an old and historical house that is renewed but not for a hotel or hostel .the house is beautiful but you can find many of very more beautiful historical houses and hotels in Kashan.
the biggest problem in this hostel is that you can't sleep or relax up to 1 or 2 am because rooms are around the yard and all have very thin doors and windows and the owners made their restaurant in the yard . people from outside and inside hostel come to restaurant and when they start talking together it's like they are all in your room and this make you really crazy ,specially after a long and tiresome day.
the breakfast is very simple like other things here and because of these , 40 USD for a twin bedroom (I think they don't have double room here an it's another negative thing) in this hostel according to Iran hotels mid range is hi.

My wife and I spent 1 night at Ehsan House in December. It was a really incredible experience, in a historical and charming house close to the bazar.
The room was very comfortable, clean and spacious.
The great view on the open courtyard is delighted by the small garden and the sound of the water of the pool.
All the staff is great! Really pleasant and very professional. They also arranged for us a day-trip to Abyaneh, Natanz and drop-off in Esfahan.
Just in front of the hotel there is a very interesting art gallery and a library, both hosted in another historical house: it is worth to take a look!

I think the only hotel of its kind in Kashan (a traditional house converted in hotel) and one of the most beautiful all over Iran! The rooms were suggestive, the courtyard beautifully restored and the food was excellent! And just near everywhere!

In the centre of Kashan in a mudbrick traditional building you will find a nice small hotel to stay in
Rooms are grouped around a courtyard with a dam and blooming trees
Lovely breakfast where the tea is served in a iranian silver "samovar" with freshly baked iranian traditional bread as much as you can eat
