Mehr Hotel: Hotel in Esfahan
Oh this hotel was great. More than we expected. It had 3 beds, 2 toilets, sofa, kitchen, tv, fridge, towels, hot water. They gave it to us for about US$40. There were 3 of us so thats not too bad. We arrived probably around 5.30am. This hotel is in the heart of the blue dome city.

Amir Kabir Hostel: Esfahan: Amir Kabir Hostel
This is the only budget hostel in Esfahan. A bed costs 60,000rials, nothing included and the staff is unfriendly. There was once when the cleaner talked something to me and I asked help at the reception if he can help to translate. The reception (he is one of the boss) answered: it is not possible because I want to talk to my friend. Was a bit surprise that he is so rude to guest.

Kohan Hotel: Yazd: Kohan Hotel
Lonely Planet has The Silk Road Hotel as their pick of hotel in Yazd, but we found Kohan Hotel much better than the Silk Road Hotel. The dormitory has nothing fancy, just a bed underground on the way to 'qanat', looked like some prison or cave for servant or slave in an ancient time, but the courtyard is big and relax. The staffs are friendly, and the 50,000rials bed charged included breakfast and free flow of tea. Shower are shared.
Unique Quality: Very beautiful courtyard and restaurant set in a relax ambience.

Hotel prices in Iran
100.000 Rials or 10.000 Tomans = 7 EUR = 10 USD
Most expensive and unique accommodation we had in Esfahan for 40 EUR (double room with breakfast), it was old house restored in old city. Not easy to find though. Nice spanish-iranian girl is taking care of this lovely place. Super clean with western toilets, only foreigners can be found here.
Tehran : we book Firouzeh hotel in Amir Kabir Street, nothing special, basic room, not very clean, shared faclities, 18 USD for double room with breakfast.
Masuleh: at the moment we step out of taxi, one old man in his 70's come and took us to his home and offer apartment accommodation, he didn't speak languages, but we negotiate about price and we paid 13 USD for apartment ; later we discovered that for room in hotel you'll pay 10 USD
Rasht: uh, that was problem because LP can give you really old information so we really couldn't find cheap place to sleep, some hotels have been renovating and we stuck at Phars hotel for 110.000 Rials for double room ,but I don't recommend it for ladies only because facilities are shared and hotel is full of Iranian male workers so my friend has so many deep looks. Rooms are small and basic.
Garmeh: it's not hotel but all in one, place to sleep, eat and you pay for that 25 USD for day pp. Rooms are unique because it's old settlement and food is excellent, facilities shared but clean and western standards.
Yazd: 280.000 Rials for double occupancy with breakfast and plenty information in Silk road hotel. Owners are really touristic oriented and you won't find locals here at all. Tea on the roof was really cool thing to do every day with fancy view. Rooms are clean with bathroom and toilet.
They also have dorms.
Shiraz: Hafez hotel is not on LP but we find it with help of nice girl from bus, she took us there with taxi and we had really cool hotel for 250.000 Rials for double with breakfast, it's midrange hotel with budget price and we warmly recommend it.

Hotel Aryan: 3* Boutique style Room in Hamadan
I was quite stunned by my room in this hotel! Although the other hotels I'd stayed in had been acceptable, this was the most modern and comfortable, so far.
I wasn't expecting to find such a spacious room, especially as my LP described it as having small but impeccably clean rooms, (also that bathrooms are fully equipped in the style of a European Ibis Hotel! - not having stayed in a EIH, I wasn't sure if this was meant to be a positive or negative comment!)
to be continued....
Unique Quality: My room (303) was a corner room, so had windows on 2 sides

Ranji Hotel Takab: Friendly Comfortable Hotel
A Pleasant, Comfortable Hotel. Recently renovated. Booked through my tour company, so I'm afraid that I don't know the cost of room per night.
This is one of the few places to stay in the area, so often used as a base for visiting Takhr-e-Suleyman etc.
I had a twin room (206) for single use. In my LP guide it had stated that rooms were basic, with 'hole in the floor squat toilets', so I was pleasantly surprised to find that my room was quite comfortable and had a 'Western style WC- ( although it was a bit wobbly!)
2 beds, fridge, table and chairs, TV (but not working), stand to hang clothes on - (it looked like a wardrobe area was under construction - I think this room was still 'in progress' as there was a smell of paint in the air!)
Nice bedding, with large fluffy towel wrapped in plastic.
We ate our evening meal here, as Majid said that it was the best place in Takab- I was a bit disappointed not to see more of Takab, but our meal was one of my favourites during my trip - Good food, Great Service - I'll write about this in my Restaurant tips
Breakfast - Eggs, bread, butter, cheese, honey and Cay - all fresh and tasty.
Postcards for sale at reception plus information on things to see/do in the area. I understand that the staff will organise trips.

Darya Hotel: 3* Hotel in Tabriz
I stayed here for 1 night as part of my tour. It was a good base for touring the sights of Tabriz. As the price was included in my tour, I'm afraid that I don't know the cost per night. After having spent the previous night camping, this was a welcome night in a bed, and a chance to do some washing.
I had a twin bedroomed room for single use ( Pic 2), so 2 beds, wardrobe, dressing table, funky orange coloured telephone (pic 3), TV-Iranian channels only, small balcony (where I could hang my washing out - view onto quiet street/residences) Prayer mat
Bathroom with WC, basin, shower, towels, loo rolls.
Freebies- shower gel/ shampoo
Flip flops for room and Bathroom.
Breakfast included - Fried eggs, cheese, flat bread, butter,cay
Unique Quality: A good base for exploring the attractions of Tabriz

Camping in Shabil
This was part of my 19 day tour. It was intended that we would be camping near the Shahsavan nomads, but they were still en route from their winter pastures.
My tent was provided by the company, I'd bought my own sleeping bag (They can be supplied by the tour company)
We pitched our tents next to a quite fast flowing river, and set about making a fire.
to be continued..
Unique Quality: Stunning scenery, clean air, but tinged with sulphur from the hot springs.
No 'facillities' There is a toilet in the village, but you have to find someone who has a key.
The covered hot springs open for bathing at around 06.30 for males, Females start at 07.30
There are places to eat in the village, or buy limited supplies. We got a jug of boiling water for making tea from one of the cafes.

Iran Hotel: Bandar-e-Anzali Hotel
Booked through my travel company (Persian Voyages) so not sure of the price for my room and breakfast
This was to be my hotel for 2 nights. It was in a good location, facing the port.
Majid, my guide offered me the choice of 2 rooms, I chose the 2nd, as it had a better view.
Room 208 was up a flight of stairs.
Twin beds, fridge, TV-(no english language channels, but I caught part of the Man Utd V Chelsea match, which was played in Moscow -'just across the water'!)wardrobe, dressing table, Air Con. Balcony with chairs.
Bathroom - Shower, WC, basin, towels, loo paper, shampoo/shower gel and soap
plus those huge rubber flip flops - see my Tehran hotel tip
Breakfast - bread, cheese, honey, cay - the 2nd morning There were boiled eggs as well.
I didn't sleep too well the first night, but was awake to see the sun rise, then watch Anzali come to life. It was quite surreal having groups of schoolgirls pass by, then all waving to me -

Hotel Mashad: Tehran 3* hotel
This was my hotel for my first 2 nights and my last night of my 19 day tour of Iran. It was booked through my tour company, so I'm not sure of the cost for my single room and breakfast. NOTE- There is another (budget) Hotel Mashad in Tehran
This was a comfortable hotel, although the colour of the room furnishings were quite drab and depressing, not a room to linger and relax in.
My room had a single bed, TV - with BBC 24 news, Fridge (Mini bar! - not too surprised to find this only contained a jug of water! I only came across 1 hotel during my trip, that had a stocked mini bar - The Traditional Hotel in Esfahan ), table and armchairs, dressing table and wardrobe (which contained a Koran, prayer mat and a wrapped pair of plastic flip flops)
Bathroom - Shower, WC, basin, towels, loo paper, shampoo/shower gel and soap.
There were also a couple of pairs of rubber flip flops for wearing in the room, and a huge white pair for wearing in the bathroom.
I'm afraid that I'm a bit squeamish about wearing these 'communal' slippers, so I'd packed a pair of flip flops in my case.
Breakfast eaten in the basement restaurant, I found on my return home, that there is another restaurant here, with views to the Alborz mountains, in the north of Tehran. I had a 'hazy' view of them from my room window.
Flat bread (Lavash) cheese, tomatoes, cucumber, boiled eggs, cakes, honey/ jam, orange squash and tea (cay) was my fuel for my days sightseeing.
Room service available including Ice creams - my menu listed saffron flavour, which I was looking forward to, but I had to settle for coffee flavour as this was all that was available - it was delicious!
