Where to stay in Kashan

As with many of Iran's cities, tourism in Kashan has not yet reached its full potential and its range of accommodations seems surprisingly sparse. The majority of places to stay sit within walking distance of Agha Bozorg Mosque, with a few additional options lining Amir Kabir Street. Most options come in the form of guesthouses or simple hotels, but a handful of traditional-style luxury accommodations offer a more special experience. Due to restrictions on foreign credit cards, you might have difficulties reserving you room ahead of time.
