Writing this from the free internet station at the lobby of this hotel (connection quite fast). The hotel is absolutely charming and quaint, particularly with the courtyard (whether viewed in day time or in evening). Our room is a double room which faces the courtyard, and everything inside the room is in order. The furnishings inside the bathroom are very well maintained. Mattress relatively hard/solid so comfortable, but the pillow seems to be too high. As mentioned with earlier posts, the a/c does not seem to be working, which is really not a big problem anyway as it cools down in the evenings. There is no in-room safe and guests are asked to leave their passports at Reception until they check out. No free water or kettle either, but you can get water cheap for IRR 5,000 per 1.5L bottle at one of the takeaway food places nearby. Breakfast is somewhat basic in the sense that you don't get fruits, other than tomatoes, cucumber (not a fruit) and sweet dates. However, managed to buy some strawberries and oranges in one of the fruit stands on the way to/from Old Town proper. Had dinner in the courtyard al fresco last evening and that itself was an experience. Some of the staff members speak very good English, others not so well, but everybody (including the cleaning staff) puts on a big smile and will try their best to make your stay comfortable. Been reading about the swimming pool in the basement however the actual door to the pool seems to be locked. Not sure if it is still in operation.
