Since 2014, the number of visitors to Iran has increased, but booking hotels in Tehran via the Internet is still difficult.
While the Internet is widely used in Iran, due to the sanctions tourists cannot book their hotel before they travel to Iran and pay online. Even comparing online prices will be difficult in some cases. Reservations are still traditionally done by operators, even if they appear to be online.
Accommodation with the lowest cost
You can go to the hotel personally at the time of entering Iran or traveling to different cities, or you can ask the hotel by e-mail to book a room for you. But we advise you to book the hotel through a trusted travel agency. This is the best way to guarantee the lowest cost of staying during your trip.

Key points for booking a hotel in Tehran
1. Hotel location:
Traffic is a perpetual problem in Tehran, so choosing a hotel location is important. If your trip is fun, make sure that the hotel is located near the most tourist attractions. If your hotel is located in the center of the city, you can have access to tourist sites in less time.
If you are traveling for business, choose a hotel located near the main centers or industrial centers of the city. Medical services, shopping malls, and airports or railway stations should also be located near the hotel.
2. Hotel Facilities:
The modern hospitable staff understands the importance of different services and facilities for their customers. Most tourists prefer hotels that offer more services. For example, if your trip is commercial, the internet and Wi-Fi facilities in your room are required.
Many hotels in Tehran have Wi-Fi, room service, tourist desk, dry cleaning and so on. Most hotels (3 stars and more) also have lunch and dinner in addition to breakfast. However, before booking, check out the facilities.
3. Customers / Comments from previous clients:
In the era of technology, a user has unlimited options to choose from because of competitive markets. Before picking up any specific hotel, you can get an idea of the opinions of those who have used this hotel before.
. Since travel logs and personal notes are beyond the direct control of hotels, the reviews that are published on various websites are 100% honest and transparent.
4. Hotel accessibility:
When traveling, having access to basic facilities is a very important factor. You must check the transportation service and the hotel accessibility. The hotel should provide transportation services to key destinations such as shopping malls, tourist attractions, railway stations and airports.
There should also be a public transportation or regular taxi service available at the hotel. The lack of fast transportation is very annoying and can make your travel experience bitter.
5. Hotel Value:
You can select a hotel by comparing the prices of different hotels simultaneously. Some hotels offer special discounts or offers. You can explore the value-added services provided by hotels. Today, many hotels offer new designs to attract tourists.
Remember that the pleasure of your trip is directly related to the place of your residence. So be very careful about choosing a hotel
