Everywhere in the world, they announce their most expensive hotels to attract the world’s richest, but this is not the case in Iran. If it is rumored that this is the most expensive hotel or restaurant or even the richest person in the world, the impression may remain for decades, even if it is soon to be violated.

Thus, the Abbasi Hotel in Isfahan was thought to be the most expensive hotel in Iran for years, though a simple query about the price of several hotels revealed to us that it was not. In this report we look at the most expensive hotels currently accepting travelers in Iran.

Standardization and hotel stars in Iran differ from what is expected of international hotel stars. As a rule, the prices of Iranian hotels are negligible compared to the most expensive hotels in the world, even if they are the most expensive in the country.

Five star hotels worldwide are ranked according to the services and facilities they provide to travelers. Infrastructure, sports and leisure facilities, indoor facilities, the number of restaurants with a great variety of food, the type of staff and customer training and many other factors determine the number of hotel stars internationally. But in Iran, hotel ratings and star ratings are different.

Perhaps this is why the standardization of the country’s hotels has not yet been completed. In Iran, what makes the stars more than just a service is their architecture and exterior decoration, but in this article we will introduce you to six of Iran’s most expensive hotels.

Unlike foreign hotels, the prices of five-star hotels in Iran are very close to each other, which is why choosing one of the expensive hotels is difficult but what is certain is that these six hotels are a bit more expensive than other hotels in the country.
