Yazd is a hot (40c.+), dry, dusty, but interesting town in the desert so arriving at this hotel is like finding an oasis. The large room we had was decorated beautifully in coloured glass and local handicrafts. Everything one would expect in a superior hotel is provided. The architectural design is such that each room is relatively isolated from others and hence very quiet. The Iranian water garden theme is continued with two streams that run down the axes of the property. The staff also splash water onto the paths to keep the place cool. The possibility of dining outside at night is another good feature of the hotel. The food is rather standard Iranian with little concession to European tastes. The only disadvantage of the place is that it is a long way from the old-town, the main touristic site in Yazd. The comforts of the hotel and its quieter location make up for this however.
