Ferdossi Grand Hotel
a very old 4 stars hotel
For our first night (actually morning, since we landed in the middle of the night) we chose to stay at the Ferdosi Grand Hotel, because of its very central location. We found the staff nice and helpful, and as promised they let us do an early check-in. They kept knocking at our door, asking if everything was fine or bringing us fresh fruits and water... very helpful people, though it never crossed their mind that we really only wanted to take a nap.
Unique Quality: We took a triple room as we had only planned to spend a few hours at the hotel - and it was not very cheap. I think we paid 120 dollars for it. It was bright and spacious, and beds were comfortable, but it is clear that the hotel is quite old and the old carpets stank a bit. Definitely the 4 stars of the hotel are not deserved. Breakfast was nothing special, either - but not too bad. The best thing about this hotel, anyway, remains its location and the cake just outside, selling delicious sweets and nuts.
Directions: 2 minutes walk from Imam Khomeini Metro station
Close to many museums
While the rooms are just ok (especially if you have to share them with a lot of mosquitoes), the food in this hotel is wonderful - they have an incredible buffet with lots of extremely tasty vegetables - best dinner I had in Iran!!
The location is also quite convenient: just around the corner from the National Museum.
In the centre of things
The Ferdosi Grand Hotel may not be the classiest or most luxurious hotel in Tehran but it is comfortable enough, with satellite TV, direct dial telephones and a tiny Internet corner. Rates normally include a more than adequate breakfast. And the location could hardly be better: right in the middle of the downtown commercial district, close to Imam Khomeini Square and within easy walking distance of the National Museum, various embassies and a range of government offices.
