An authentic Safavid house, beautifully restored

hot tip charm

Don't hesitate to book into the Bekhradi House, a timeless guesthouse.

As Iran reopens to tourism, sumptuous traditional houses are gradually being restored and converted into hotels. This is the case with this magnificent mansion dating from the 17th century, built during the Safavid period in Sonbolestan, the old district of Isfahan. Morteza Bekhradi, passionate about architecture and design and the head of an art gallery in the ‘blue city', is the owner of this listed building.

After careful renovation over five years, the walls and the windows of this historical home have found their colours of old. Each room or suite is decorated in an elegant traditional style, without being overloaded, and the pleasant inner courtyard allows for lounging around a tea served steaming hot. You can also taste the delicious family cuisine based on organic fruits and vegetables, and meat guaranteed to be ‘without hormones'. A fabulous address where the staff will look after your every whim.
