10 Luxury Hotels in Iran

Iran has a number of hotels classified as ‘luxury’ based on their rates but that doesn’t often translate to luxury services.
In this article we review ten luxury properties based on their rates and quality of services, as well as how good they are in terms of value for money. For every hotel, the rate for a double room during the off-peak travel season without discounts has been cited.
Instead of providing a complete list of five-star hotels, we opted to include properties from across Iran to keep the list brief and diverse.

Carrying the title of Iran’s most expensive hotel, Toranj Marine Hotel on Kish Island commands the highest rates mostly due to its location. Located just off the coast in the Persian Gulf, the hotel’s glass floors provide a unique view of the seafloor.
