Some tourists travel to Iran to get in touch with the traditional Iranian life-style, and they prefer to stay in traditional houses or in small boutique hotels. But for others, comfort and quality service come above everything else, and they highly prioritize amenities and professional staff when doing their hotsssel booking online.
If you belong to the second category then you’re still in luck, because Iran has its fair share of luxurious 5-star hotels that hold up to international standards. Read on to learn about five of the best 5-star hotels in Iran.
Espinas Palace Behroud, Tehran
Among all the Espinas Palace chain hotels throughout the country, Espinas Palace Behroud stands out the most when it comes to luxuriousness. It has everything that you would expect from a 5-star hotel; international restaurants, meeting & convention rooms, bowling room, sports salon, gym, spa, and pool tables, among a multitude of other amenities.
What really sets Espinas Palace apart from many other hotels in the capital are the staff. They are professional, highly trained, extremely polite, and (like any other decent 5-star hotel) bilingual.
Toranj Marine Hotel, Kish
Toranj is one of the most expensive hotels in the country for good reason; the entire hotel is built on the sea!
Besides being a hotel that has all its rooms and amenities built on the water (which is pretty awesome!), Toranj is a perfectly fine 5-star hotel in any other aspect. It has all the amenities you would expect from a 5-star hotel, such as international restaurants, game rooms, spa, gym, and boating, among many others. The staff are trained, nice and very polite. Because the hotel is located within the sea, you can also enjoy interacting with the area’s ecosystem, which includes animals such as seabirds, fish, and turtles.
To put it simply, GhasrTalaee is a decent 5-star hotel with decent 5-star amenities and services. If you are looking for a luxurious hotel that has easy access to the Holy Shrine, GhasrTalaee is the perfect choice for you. Its amenities include a gym, spa, swimming pool, jacuzzi, billiard room, game room, children game room, beauty salons, library, bank, and airport and holy shrine shuttle. The staff are very polite and highly trained. You really can’t go wrong with GhasrTalaee ,since it is one of the best hotels in Mashhad, Iran, if not the best.
ParsianAzadi is one of the oldest hotels of Iran and one of the more popular hotels with international tourists. In addition to being a very decent 5-star hotel, this hotel’s guests enjoy interacting with highly trained and professional staff.
It may be no Espinas Palace, but ParsianAzadi still holds its own as one of the best 5-star hotels in the capital with reasonable prices. Its amenities include (but are not limited to) a gym, spa, game room, meeting & convention rooms, swimming pool, vegetarian and seafood restaurants, and a 24/7 café.
Abbasi Hotel, Isfahan
If you like the ease and comfort of luxurious hotels, but still want to stay in an accommodation with a traditional Iranian feel, then Abbasi is the ideal hotel for you. Its blend of modern amenities and Safavid architecture make it entirely the world of its own..
This hotel earns its spot in the list thanks to its sheer museum-like beauty. The mixture of traditional elements and 5-star amenities will leave you feeling dazzled in a completely different way. Where the hotel comes up a little short, however, are the staff who aren’t professional enough for a 5-star hotel. But nonetheless, Abbasi is one of the best Iran hotelsin Isfahan and it’s sure to make your visit to Isfahan very memorable.
