Tehran, the capital and one of the largest cities in the Middle East, sits in the foothills of a mountain range and stretches out for miles. A new city by regional standards, contemporary Tehran began as part of a great regeneration project in the 20th century. History enthusiasts can mull over the region's past in a number of museums across the capital, although the emphasis for most trips to Tehran hinges on the present and the future. In particular, students from across the country flock here, contributing to its cosmopolitan cafe culture, creative atmosphere, and status as one of the more liberal cities in the country. In the build up to your vacation in Tehran, plan trip itinerary minutiae using the visitor reviews, staff write-ups, and custom search fields on our Iran vacation planner.

Where to stay in Tehran

The northern districts of Tehran possess a more suburban, cosmopolitan feel, and a more spacious form, with a number of accommodations geared towards international tourism. Luxury hotels with pools overlooking the parks sit alongside some more basic and humble offerings, usually located on the lesser side streets. The southern districts offer a livelier experience, where guesthouses, hostels, and simple hotels line the confusing bundle of winding streets. Of course, some areas of the south open up a little, and here you'll find a good number of standard and mid-range hotels with varying levels of amenities.
