  • The last day of Iran, go someplace you haven't been, and buy something worth taking back. The film museum is in the north of Iran, the red dots. It's nice to build. All kinds of Iranian Jinghai reports. The movie fans are worth a lot of dough, and they look good in their own buildings. There is a small book store/century shop.

  • Nice place to hang out for tea. The staff is very nice and the landscape in the evening is brilliant. Had a great time.
  • Super nice , old and fantastic. You can walk and feel old garden and building all over there. The movie place has a nice ceiling . Awesome
  • Majid majidi's Children of Heaven is the first non language film i have seen in my life. Funny to say, like most others i became an avid follower of Iranian films. On my first visit to iran, i ventured into the film history of Iran through the film museum nestled in the valiasr street. Different era of film making are well displayed inside with recreation of some film sets and behind the scene post production works. A must see visit place for movie lovers if you are in Tehran.
  • excellent cinema which has been refurbished with the latest kit. great place to catch a movie
  • Lovely place for meeting, but not very good saloon for film

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.
