Traditional Abbasi Hotel, Isfahan, Iran

Traditional Abbasi Hotel in Isfahan

History

Shah Sultan Hossein order the constrcution of Isfahan’s Abbasi Hotel under the Safavid dynasty reign. Isfahan’s Abbasi Hotel  was originally used as a caravanserai for merchants traveling the ancient Silk Road.
The caravanserai provided shelter for merchants and also for the camels and horses they used to help transport their goods. Just behind this Caravanserai, there is a small bazaar  and next to that a theological school (Madrese Madar-e Shah).
In the 1950s French archaeologist André Godard, working in Iran at the time, restored the damaged caravanserai after centuries.

Soon after that, the Abbasi became what it is today: a 5-star hotel in the Beautiful city of Isfahan.

Atmosphere

This hotel is all about atmosphere. Moreover, it’s uniquely Persian. The architecture have lined the hallways with authentic miniature paintings. They have also finely detailed the ceiling of the lobby and therefore beautiful mirror work and exquisite colorful wall motifs often in association with romantic notions of “the orient decorated the dining areas. The hotel has an old wing and a new wing which include around 225 rooms, including 23 suites
Built in 1970s, the rooms in the new wing are rather characterless. It seems that the re-creation of the hotel’s original look and feel wasn’t a priority at the time of construction and therefore the rooms are bland in color and nondescript.
The open-air courtyard is what makes the Abbasi Hotel really special.
It is a large, lovely, well-maintained Persian garden, complete with little fountains, small stream-lined avenues, bright flower beds, quince and persimmon trees.

People spend their time drinking tea, reading a book or hiding far from the hustle and bustle of the town.
