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.

  • Beautiful old traditional house showcasing the best of Iranian architecture. Take some time to explore the garden and the rooms and corridors here, it is worth it. Plenty of tourists though, more so than the other traditional houses in Kashan
  • I think it is a good place. you can see the old Iranian architecture. but i think it needs more description in English. so I recommend to study about it more, before go and see.
  • ✍🏻️🇮🇷One of the most beautiful traditional houses of Kashan that was built by a famous carpet businessman of this city about 200 years ago. Beautiful historical building with Iranian architecture and magnificent ornaments that will surely fascinate you.
  • Nice to see the ancient Iranian Architecture.
  • A big and beautiful historical Iranian house with many rooms
