As the name suggests, this hotel offers tourists an insight into everyday elite living during the Safavid and Qajar eras. The hotel is housed within two adjoining Qajar mansions that have been masterfully restored by skilled craftsmen form around Isfahan and Yazd, and painted in bright blues and ochre. It uses symbolic Iranian architectural elements like low vaulted corridors, two central courtyards, and an entrance from a busy market.
The hotel offers an internet café, a secure parking are for guests, and a cab calling service.
The hotel is relatively small, with only 16 rooms – but this means that service is much more attentive, and the place does not get very crowded.
Rooms come in different sizes – 10 Standard Double Rooms, 5 Regular Suites, and one VIP Suite. All rooms are spacious, with individual air conditioning, satellite television, pay-per-view movies, DVD players, refrigerators, direct landlines, and electric tea makers.
Not all rooms have attached baths. Only the Suites do.
Not surprisingly, the hotel contains a restaurant that is really popular even with tourists who are not staying at the hotel. It serves delectable local and international dishes, and can seat up to 120 guests at a time.
