“Nothing special, adequate for a touristic stop.”
Reviewed December 26, 2013

Shiraz is a city with so many beautiful things to do and see. As with most of Iran, hotels are not in the same league as their historical/natural sites and people’s friendliness. Homa hotel is regarded as a five star hotel, but compared to international standards it is three stars.
Lobby is large and bustling with life all the time. The hotel was built before the revolution, so décor is retro. However it is nice. There are some gardens and tennis courts outside. At evening, it’s a good place to spend some time or drink a beverage.
Service is adequate, no more. No friendliness in people and they won’t do more for you than the minimum. We asked for one bed and got two, nothing could be done because they were full (apparently).
Breakfast is normal for Iranian standards.
Rooms are small and clean enough to sleep. Bathroom is very dated and furniture makes it feel cramped. The views to hotel garden were one of the highlights. We had an old squared TV. Amenities are almost the same as all hotels in Iran.
However the hotel (there is a newer, perhaps it’s better if open), the city has many things worth going. Persepolis alone makes the trip (and there are so much more!). I’m not sure there is something better, but go to Shiraz.

Room Tip: They say there are some renovated rooms. Ask for one of those.

Good Service & a roof top restaurant with the View of the whole city. The Rooms were very clean & i think one of the best hotels in Shiraz. We had Mediterranean food & Definitely worth trying.

Service is a bit slow & yes language barrier exists. ( few staff were able to speak some English.

Room Tip: Choose rooms with the city view overlooked by mountains at the back.

This hotel is situated in a park, so it is pretty quiet. Our suite was clean and the bed was comfortable with good linens. The shower was good, but toilets did not always operate properly. The restaurant was ok, but there are probably better places to eat in Shiraz. They did a good job on our laundry.

We stayed in Homa Hotel in the city of SHIRAZ for two nights, Following was our experience:

I was in same hotel in 1976 and 1980 and this was my 3rd time. We (I and My wife) used to stay in other hotels (Pars and ...) in last three times. but as other hotel were full we had to choose HOMA Hotel to stay.

- The hotel building was old, grand and quite a landmark with a nice view (north side) to a Hugh PArk and montains. Lobby area done up nice and looks inviting but Furniture was aliitle old.
- Rooms are well furnished and include almost all required facilities like tea/coffee maker, toiletries and nice new Furniture.
- Staff behavior were nice + Polite and Helpful also friendly. Most of them are very responsive..
- Old Bathrooms but everything were working properly.
- There were no rush hours for the elevators. Always available in less than one minutes.
- Breakfast was good, the only missing item was cold water. there was jus 3 or four items of fruites. teasty coffee.
- Free WiFi in whole area, Just need to ask saff to give you Pasword.
- There are two Tennis courts in hotel
- SPA and Swimming pool Available
- Hotel Taxi Service charge less than city Cabs!!!!
We will try this hotel in our Future trips.

I have stayed in this hotel and I cannot say anything bad about the whole stay. First of all, the management and the reception staff are all very professional and very kind. The room was very comfortable and the choice of breakfast was great - for all kinds of guests.
I am definitely coming back later on this year.
There are better/newer/etc hotels in Iran for sure, but it is the overall impression that counts, and it has been just perfect.

The hotel is a little dated but everything is functional. However, if you are an independent traveller who wants to walk to/from town, this may not be the hotel that you would want to choose. This property caters to tour groups, those in Shiraz for plastic surgery and business meetings. Breakfast is basic and decent. On one morning, there were only oranges and kiwis for fruit, but on another morning, there were huge juicy grapefruits. Air conditioning / ventilation did not seem to be fully functional in our room. There was the in-room safe, free water (1.5L bottle per day) and water kettle. Staff in the dining room are a bit "rough" but they get the job done. Due to the location of the hotel, had dinner there after a day of touring the city - just ordering two salad buffets and one main (the fish kebab) was enough to feed two people, all at IRR 425,000. Don't change money in this hotel - staff was nice to tell us that they can only use the official rate - change elsewhere before you get here so that you can settle the bill.
