Admire the lush paintings on the low ceilings and get a peek at 19th century aristocratic life.

Where to stay in Shiraz

The main bazaar district in the center of town remains the primary place to look for accommodations in Shiraz. Standard hotels tower over the public squares, and side street hostels offer particularly budget-friendly dormitory room stays. To the north of this central district, you'll find the most opulent options in town, with luxury hotels offering commanding views of traditional Persian gardens, swimming pools, and onsite fine-dining restaurants.

  • Beautiful place, great views, you can even dress up as a traditional persian princess and get printed photos. I highly recommend a visit here if you are in Shiraz.
  • Imo simply the most beautiful garden in Shiraz. Not only the garden is full of flowers with a nice smell but the house is full of decorations and paintings. Even the souvenir shops are well furnished. You can spend hours chilling around here. A must visit place in Shiraz.
