Good location on a small street away from the noise of the main streets. Front desk staff is friendly and interested in foreign guests. Rooms are adequate, some with Western-style toilets, though the showers are a little awkward.. Wi-Fi is good. Breakfast is minimal but adequate.
I was there for 2 night. Air conditioning system was awful,the room was very old and was not clean.Frankly speaking,I don,t suggest this hotel atall.Reception was not friendly,so breakfast was very low quality with limited items.The only positive point is location.
The location of the place is great as it is walking distance to two of underground stations which can take you to the most interesting sights of Tehran. The place is what you'd expect from a 2 stars hotel. We had an issue in which we booked triple rooms and were given double rooms with a sofa-bed. I raised my concerns and even though we were not given proper triple rooms or split in double rooms we were offered a free shuttle to the airport. Staff was mostly friendly. Breakfast is good.
We stayed in total 4 nights in Khayyam hotel. Clean rooms, price - quality ok. The staff was very friendly and helpfull. When a rude taxidriver followed us to the lobby in a heavy quarrel on the price, the staff personel gently could solve the problem. Thanks for this.Alex.
The Khayyam Hotel came warmly recommended by my guide book. It proved an excellent choice for a 2 star hotel and I was very happy to have found it. It is situated in South Tehran, much cheaper than North where premium hotels are found. It is a few minutes from Mellat metro station and close to Imam Khomeini Sq. and its metro station too. The Bazaar also is within walking distance and so are the Golestan Palace complex and the Treasury Museum. It is off a main street, tucked in an alleyway that is quiet. I had no problem returning to it at night. The hotel felt very safe. The staff is particularly helpful, pleasant and forthcoming. They organised taxis (at the correct rates) and can arrange travel bookings. They are a mine of information in Farsi, English and French. My room was spacious, equipped with a fridge, writing table, sofa, comfortable bed and a pristine bathroom with a very good shower. Breakfast is good and generous, including fresh food.. The air conditioning was noisy on one occasion (bring ear plugs) but worked well. The free WiFi is good and available throughout the hotel. When it failed once I was promptly given another channel. I returned to the Khayyam after my tour of Iran. The staff could not have been nicer and provided all sorts of help, including chasing my lost luggage. A good tip was the various street food outlets by Khomeini Sq. where I regularly ate excellent vegetarian food. At such budget prices, the Khayyam is clearly a first choice; I cannot fault it. I had a wonderful time in Iran and can’t wait to return. I would definitively stay at the Khayyam again. They are very good ambassadors for this remarkable country.…
