Where to stay in Esfahan

Esfahan includes a smattering of accommodations that provide variety, if not depth of choice. Along the main Chahar Bagh drag and the streets that lead off it, you'll find a few fairly basic hotels, providing decent rooms in the city center, close to the main attractions and services. Hostels can be found, with dormitory rooms providing particularly good options for budget-conscious travelers who want to be right in the thick of things close to the main square and the bazaar. The most luxurious hotels in town lie further to the south, set in historic buildings overlooking the river.

  • An incredibly beautiful mosque. With its bare brick wall some of the rooms seem almost etheric. Definitely worth visiting to see an old style mosque.
  • Having seen soooooooo many mosques in Iran this one wasn't so impressive ... or just my palate was too jaded. Dont try to squeze so many mosques into your intinerary. PS. My opinion isn't fair - I was just too tired from constant travels by bus: from Tehran - to Esfahan - to Queshm Island.
  • One of the most beautiful mosques in the world. So much history and so much to learn in one place.
  • Maybe not the most beautiful religious building in Isfahan but definitely it is a top one. Visit it on Friday after 11 and before 14 when the courtyard is open and it is free! In this case you can see most of the place for free. If you want to see the interiors price is 200.000 rials.
  • The Friday Mosque may looked similar to other grand mosques in Iran. However, if you go inside, you will find out that it was so special that it was built in different era and you can see the differences. It is the largest mosque in Iran and not many tourists come here. Entrance is around US$5.
