Someone wrote "It`s all about Masoud" and it realy is.

The Guesthouse is very nice but what made this stay special washaving dinner with Masoud, his wife and the other guests. The wife cooked homemade Gnochi which were delecious we all ate together at a big table and had a great time. Masoud shared very funny stories I am not exaggerating but i gues we all felt "at home" a bit. One of the best Hotels I`ve been!

We stayed here for 2 nights and we enjoyed a lot. Masoud and his wife are great hosts, very warm and welcoming, Masoud is the only one around who really speaks englings fluently and was more than happy to help us with bus tickets. We stayed here because all accomodation in Yazd was booked, but in the end this turned out to be a good thing. The village is worth a look and you can walk right into the desert! A taxi into town will cost you about 4 euro and there are hourly busses. We did not go on a tour with Masoud or his brother, but I'm sure you would have a great time.
Be aware that this hotel is also the house of Masoud and his wife, and that they do not employ permanent staff, so if it is busy you will just need to wait a little bit before somebody has time to help you.

Room tip: We stayed in a beautifull 4-bed room with a private bathroom with nice hot shower for 50 euro/night. You can also sleep in the dorm or on a bed in the courtyard, the whole place felt really safe so if you are on a budget I would recommend this.

My husband and i stayed 1 night at this hotel as we thought Caravanserai Zeinodi would be too touristy.

Location: in the old city of Fahraj, opposite the ruins of a castle.

Hotel: restored historic house with a variety of accommodation set around a small courtyard.

Room: we stayed in the VIP room, which had 2 single and 1 double beds, fridge and fan. The en-suite bathroom had a jacuzzi which we were too scared to switch on due to the precarious electric installations and the fact that the bathroom floor flooded as the bath was emptied.

Customer service: this place is mainly a one-man show. The owner runs the hotel and guide tours. He is very efficient.

Breakfast: limited choice but good quality, in particular the delicious fresh omelette. We also had dinner at the hotel, which was very tasty but consisted of a single vegetarian dish. At 4 euros a head this is outrageous for Iran!

Sleep quality: good.

Room tip: I believe all rooms with en-suite bathroom are good but the rooms close to the restaurant can be noisy as guests congregate there after dinner

The house is lovely and the decoration beautiful. However the rooms were overpriced (up to 85USD per night for one room). The food was good, but again expensive compared to other places in Iran. Masoud was often busy and seldom available for advice, the rest of the staff does not speak English. I would still recommend this place, but do not expect something fantastic.

We totally recommend this place, It's the best place we stayed in Iran even we usually stay in lonely's planet top choses. The place is awesome, in the middle of nowhere, on an beautiful village, you have the unique chance to visit the castle opposite the hotel and realise how the monuments were before converted to a touristic attractions as there is no reconstruction yet.
Mohammed (owner's brother) is a great guy that stayed with us almost all day, and show us around. We had an amazing adventure in the desert with Ali, 2 person plus Ali the driver on a motorbike.
we rent a double room for almost 20 euro per night with breakfast and free pick up from Yazd, I guess is off season price.
