Luxury 5 Star hotel with Persian touches in the lobby. Espinas might not meet the standards of Las Vegas with theme parks and weekly theater shows, but the hotel most often impresses travelers in Tehran with fine tastes. Starting from $230 US per night, it's currently ranked #1 on Trip Advisor and has won several other awards.
Slightly more affordable, the Parsian Azadi Hotel is the classic 5 Star hotel towering above Tehran in the north. It was previously the Hyatt Crown Hotel before the revolution, and has since undergone renovations to give it pleasant charm. Starting from $190 US per night, Parsian Azadi Hotel is very popular with tour groups and business travelers.
With beautifully decorated rooms, Niloo Hotel in Tehran is run professionally and oozes with character. The interior decor might not appeal to everybody, but the standards are very high with large rooms, clean and tidy finishes, a fine breakfast buffet, and they also prepare great coffee! From $200 US / night, it's not cheap but it's sure to brighten up your tip to Iran.
If you prefer skipping the same old, the Tooba Hotel is famous for it's large breakfast buffet selections and rooftop dining. The rooms have rather standard arrangements, but the hotel boasts a long list of special facilities, not to mention apartments with quite spacious areas. The price tag of $230 per night and transport access might turn some people away, but Tooba gives a personalized welcoming.
The Raamtin rarely disappoints with it's large, quiet and clean rooms. It's a rather cosy hotel with professional staff, and the BRT (bus network) frequently runs along Valiasr Street to most places of interest for pennies. From $160 US per night the Raamtin is suitable for travelers on business trips or families who appreciate a touch of classic charm.
Melal Hotel Apartments are popular for a reason, the staff are very supportive and it's business and family friendly. Highly recommended by Lonely Planet, the owners of Melal have since built more apartments to cater for the high demand. Starting from $170 US, the apartment style hotel can make you feel right at home, which is a nice feeling in the busy city of Tehran.
Another feather in the cap of the Melal Hotels Group, the Sepehr Hotel Apartments are quite fancy with huge apartments for a relatively hidden hotel. It's secluded away from busy streets, so much so the taxi drivers may struggle to find it, yet it's walking distance to the popular Tajrish metro station and Darband in the far north. From $150 US per night, Sepehr is good value for travelers who appreciate the comforts in a large quiet space.
While perhaps not as modern as the nearby Parsian Evin and Azadi Hotels, the Esteghlal is one of the biggest with over 550 rooms across two towers. It's the most popular for conference events and business travelers in the north, positioned right next to the International Exhibition Centre. For a 5 Star rating and $140 US rooms, Esteghlal Hotel could be fitted out with more modern details, but the sound proof windows and old fashioned charm has attracted big crowds for years.
The Melal Hotel Group expanded and have build the efficient and popular Abtin Hotel Apartments. From $120 US per night (and likely to climb), the hotel has spacious and well equipped apartments that attract both regular travelers and first timers. While Abtin isn't walking distance to tourist attractions, it's centrally located near the trendy Valiasr and Vanak Square for shopping and business needs.
Just around the corner from Parsian Azadi Hotel, the Evin Hotel is quite new and attracts a large volume of diplomatic and business travelers. It's right next to the International Exhibition Center in the north of Tehran. And while it's always difficult to find vacant rooms in Tehran, Parsian Evin Hotel has a good 135 rooms for extra capacity. Starting from only $120 US per night, it's one of the most professionally run and efficient hotels in the city for conferences.
These are just some of the most famous places to visit in Tehran. But the real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new landscapes, but in having new eyes coming to Iran.
