Isfahan Boutique Hotel

Isfahan, a city shrouded in history, is one of the most beautiful cities in the Middle-East. To have a decent tour of the city and be immersed in its historic splendors, one needs at least a couple of days. That is when the issue of accommodation begins to loom. But you have nothing to fret about as Isfahan offers great choices of accommodation for all budgets. Take for example the great variety of cheap hotels and hostels in Isfahan which is a true rarity in central Iran. They are ideal for an economy traveler on so many levels. First, they charge much lower than fancy hotels. Second, most of Isfahan hotels are near the major highlights of Isfahan in the city center. Finally, they provide their guests with great service and standard amenities. One shining example of such a place is Isfahan Boutique Hotel. This beautiful hotel is in fact a renovated historic house that dates back to more than 400 years ago. The hotel’s architecture is the work of Iranian arch masters of the 17th century. Isfahan Boutique Hotel has seven beautifully decorated and aptly furnished rooms. There is also a dorm room for the backpackers and other budget travelers who are looking for a simple bed and basic amenities. All rooms have air-conditioners and heaters. However due to the historic significance of the hotel and the need for its preservation, the rooms don’t have separate bathrooms. In spite of being in the city center, Isfahan Hotel is next to a public parking area where you can leave your car in return for a little parking fee. And one last thing about the hotel is that it is only a two minutes’ walk from major historic highlights such as Jameh Mosque and the old bazaar of Isfahan. Other economy options in Isfahan include numerous fantastic guesthouses. However, if you prefer luxury accommodation, you should try Isfahan’s deluxe traditional hotels. They have the authentic ambiance of a traditional mansion and the stylish facilities of a modern hotel.

Isfahan Tourist Attractions

Isfahan claims some of the most significant historic monuments on the list of Iran tourist attractions. The largest historic square of the world, several ancient bridges and the most beautiful congregational mosques in the world are among the most popular of Isfahan’s tourist attractions. Now let’s take a closer look at some of these magnificent attractions.

 

Isfahan Hotel

1. Naghsh-e-Jahan Square

Naghsh-e- Jahan Square isn’t only the largest historic plaza in the world but is also one of the architectural wonders of human civilization. Shah Abbas I of the Safavid dynasty ordered the construction of this massive structure. The square is flanked by a number of extraordinary monuments. These include Shah Mosque, the pavilion of Ali Qapu, the portico of Qeyssariyeh, and the sublime Sheikh Lotfallah Mosque. There are also many shops in the area selling handicraft and local sweets where you can buy souvenirs.

 

2. Vank Cathedral

Vank Cathedral is a true rarity among the religious buildings in Iran. The cathedral lies in the beautiful Jolfa district where the majority of the population are Christians. What is unique about the cathedral is its architecture which is a remarkable synthesis of Armenian and Iranian art of the 17th century. Vank is also revered for its frescos and also for an attached museum that showcases invaluable ancient items from the history of Christianity.

 

3. Menar Jonban

The reputation of the famous “swinging minarets” of Isfahan is legendary. Originally the resting place of a 17th century mystic, Menar Jonban is better known for its swinging minarets. To preserve the structure from damage, the minarets are put in motion every thirty minutes. The place is outside Isfahan but it is worth the visit. Especially since it is only 10 km away from the city (a hired taxi will cost you only 5 USD).

 

4. Chehel Sotoun

Safavids were formidable monarchs. At the height of their power, their kingdom included the present-day Iran and many of its neighboring countries. Foreign emissaries frequented the capital and the place that the king received them had to be formidable. Chehel Sotoun (“forty columns”) was built to serve the latter purpose. Why is it called “forty columns”? Because if you choose an angle from which you have both the twenty columns of the pavilion and their reflection on the large pool, you will see forty columns.

 

5. Si-o-se-pol and Khaju Bridge

These are two of the celebrated bridges built over Zayandeh-Rud River. Khaju Bridge, a 133 meters bridge was built by the order of Shah Abbas II in 1650. The bridge is famous for its stunning parallel arches and octangular pavilions. Si-o-se-pol is the older of the two, built in 1599 under the auspices of Allahverdi Khan Undiladze, a wealthy man of Georgian descent who served as a chancellor to Shah Abbas I. It is about 300 meters long and includes 33 arches; hence the name Si-o-se-pol (33 bridges).

 

6. Birds Garden of Isfahan

Birds Garden of Isfahan is a huge bird park with a total area of 17000 m². More than 5000 birds from all five continents are kept in this massive park.

 

Isfahan City

Isfahan is a museum of a city surrounded by the scalding deserts of central Iran and the mountainous regions of the west. Isfahan contributes a lot to Iran’s points of interest. Isfahan’s long history as the capital of Persia during the 17th and 18th centuries manifests itself in a collection of extraordinary monuments. Safavid kings and specially the mighty Shah Abbas I transformed Isfahan from a modest desert city into the center of thought and arts (architecture in particular) in the Muslim world. Anyone who has ever set foot into this magical city, will tell you that it is verily “the half of the world”.
