I was very impressed by the standard of the Homa Hotel in Shiraz. Iranian hotel ratings differ greatly from western standards but I found this hotel to be great value for money. Room was big and clean, bathroom was spacious and an excellent assortment of amenities were provided.
Dinner was buffet style served outside in the gardens with live music (a piano-playing DJ) from 8pm to 11pm. Buffet was big but there was not a huge selection. A la carte menu was also limited in choices and many were poorly translated into English - leaving you with some doubts as to exactly what certain dishes were. Overall, price made this a good option with dinner with drinks (non-alcoholic of course!) coming to about 11 euros.
Outdoor pool was drained and closed, but there was a pool in the fitness centre, along with wet and dry saunas, and a cold plunge pool. Fitness centre was segregated with men and women being able to use it at different times - check if unsure! Location was not great and taxis were needed to get into the centre of town where most of the sights are - they were readily available at the hotel and cost less than two euros one way.

Shiraz is everything I ever imagined Iran to be and so much more! It is breathtaking desert mountains, it is red dust, it is songbirds, it is ancient marketplaces, it is stunning mosques, it is the resting place of poets, and it is the home of friendly and welcoming people.

About an hour's drive east of Shiraz can be found the remains of the ancient city of Persepolis: a 2500 year old 'screw you' to the Babylonian Empire. Built as a ceremonial capital to receive foreign signatories, little remains today at the original site as the most important surviving pieces have been carried off to various museums.
... dinner in the same restaurant we went to yesterday (I have so far still managed to avoid any more kebabs), packing and then off to the airport at the interesting time of 12 am.
The airport in Shiraz was quite strange. When we arrived there was already a queue waiting in front of a closed door. As we had no idea what to do we decided to join the queue. After waiting for quite some time the door opened and we figured out what ...
... non-kebab food. But when going to the restaurant we found that it had been booked for a function that night. So we had to find another place to eat. We knew that there was a restaurant across the road and so we tried our luck there. But again only kebabs on the menu. So an executive decision was made to eat at the best restaurant in Shiraz (at least according to our guidebook). The restaurant was amazing and I could not believe that I was actually able to eat fish – so happy
