Booking a Hotel Room in Farsi
Where Can You Stay in a Persian Speaking Country?
If your visa and ticket are ready to travel to Iran, Afghanistan or Tajikistan, the last important thing to decide is where to stay or booking a hotel. As in other countries, you have many different options. Depending on your preferences and budget, you can stay in a 5-star hotel, a room in a hostel or even in a tent which you had brought with you. To help you make your mind easier, we are providing you with some required information and suggestions.
Regarding tourism as a profitable industry is something recent in Iran, Tajikistan and Afghanistan; therefore, required infrastructure for tourism is not comparable to what you can find in many other countries. However, because of historical sightseeing and attractive nature in these countries, many people are eager to visit this part of the world. So, you’d better book a room at least a month beforehand to make sure that you won’t bump into a problem. Moreover, you have to keep in mind that the standard of giving stars to hotels may vary in different cities so, check services and quality of everything carefully before you book a room.
In old cities in Iran, such as Isfahan, Kashan, Yazd and Shiraz you can stay in old houses which are restored and changing into hotels. If you do not like modern and luxurious places and you enjoy feeling old time atmosphere, these places are the best options for you to stay. You can get pleasure of eating traditional homemade foods in most of these hotels.
Moreover, during the last decade, investment in eco-resorts has become a trend in Iran. Many families who inherited an old house or building in rural areas, are changing these places into traditional restaurants or hostels. Because these places are usually managed by a family and their close relatives, you can experience living with Iranian traditional family, eating the same food with them, listening to live traditional music they may play for you and enjoy the well-known Iranians’ hospitability. But keep in mind that most of the time the facilities in these places are lower than what you may have in big hotels. If you are searching for a soothing place far from city crowds, these places are the best options for you.
Another choice for staying is to find a furnished flat which you can rent for specific time. These houses are usually convenient and clean but there will be no one helping you for anything. If you decide to stay in these flats, make sure you can know some basic phrases in Persian to go shopping or asking for direction.
Finally, if you are looking for more adventurous trip to these countries, you can bring your tent and sleeping bag to go camping in mountains, woods or deserts. Most of the travelers in Iran, Afghanistan or Tajikistan, who use couch-surfing, had made friends among locals in these countries for years before travelling. If you are a type of person who finds pleasure in unexpected challenges, this option is the best for you. But remember that in most of the places in these countries, you need to speak Farsi to survive.
Now, if you made your mind to book a room in a hotel or hostel, here are some phrases in Farsi to learn.
