  • This is a Persian carpet Museum. That is very much because the hotel is located 5 minutes walking from a friend's House and we went. Free admission of Iran who are foreign nationals are taken money. I got paid so much that out of or lost. Look piece by piece and soon will be banged around 廻reba is not so big, so fast, that pretty much takes time. A lot of historically valuable carpets are exhibited. At the entrance, was to demonstrate the hand-woven. Small looms here but not sold in the souvenir shop, ornaments, etc. To bargain when you buy fine bonus offer.

  • Very nice! Not only the carpet collection, but also the beautiful architecture.
  • A collection of Persian carpets: it is a very interesting museum specially for non-Persians! ;)
  • It's such a wonderful museum but sadly the carpets descriptions are only in Persian language (Farsi) and there's only a brief description in English. I really enjoyed watching "Boostan" Carpet having a 3D pattern and it was really interesting to me. There was another carpet that really amazed me. It depicts 160 of the most famous people in the world including Persian and European kings...A carpet full of stories!
  • Highly recommended museum for curious people!
  • An amazing collection of Persian rugs from different historical periods and different areas of Iran. Also sometimes, an exhibition is held outside the museum in which carpet merchants gather around and present carpets from all over Iran.

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.
