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.

  • Absolutely beautiful. The collection is unlike anything outside of Western Europe and NYC. Just wish the government would look after the building and the area more. But if you like art, you must must must visit
  • The quality of art here is great. Unique pieces from Picaso, Francis Bacon and Monet as well great works from some Iranian artists. However, all of these masterpieces are let down by the poor design of the exhibit. Lighting and placement of the art works need to be overhauled completely. For example some of the best works were placed in narrow corridors with inadequate lighting. Leaves much to be wished for.
  • + Great Collection and nice architecture - Rude Staff especially security staff
  • This place is fantastic from architecture to the vast collection of contemporary and modern paintings! Absolutely amazing!
  • Has some really unique pieces and is a must go if you understand mordern art. The display kerps changing and could also have 3d. Isn't very typipicall of Iran though.May also get a bit boring.
