A very comfortable stay. The hotel has historical pictures setup against an ambient backdrop on each floor, sort of like a mini-museum. The room was spacious and the furniture and theme were very well set. The staff was very prompt in taking care of requests, and warm / friendly in general. The late night menu had a good selection of food. I found the room extras (fridge items) to be over priced. The hotel is located 10 minutes away from Istiklal street. I would highly recommend it to anyone looking to stay away from the main travel zone, but just close enough. The downside is, you would have to either take a taxi or catch a bus for any major tourist attractions in the city.
The overall atmosphere is very well suited for business travellers. I highly recommend it, even though I find it to be a bit on the pricey side.
ps. I particularly loved the showers
