TravelPod Member ReviewsHoma Hotel Shiraz
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.

... 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
... o, e conversavamos sobre tudo. Depois eles me levaram até o meu hostel, que eu já esperava ninguem falando inglês. E fez todo meu checkin, pediu descontos, me levou até o quarto. Deixou o telefone dela e do marido pra mim e pra recepcionista do hostel, para qualquer problema que eu tivesse, que eu ligasse e ela viria me buscar. Eu acho que não conseguirei lembrar o nome dela. Mas eu jamais esquecerei aquele rosto, tampouco o cuidado e a hospitalidade daquela ...
... of the Zagros mtns. Our driver was a Lor so he could speak the dialect of the nomads. He managed to get us invited into nomad encampments twice during the journey. Once for tea & a chat about their life. These were quite random events, not pre arranged tourist experiences....fascinating, but such a tough life.
As we worked into the mtns we crossed more of the Fred Williams landscape seen between Hamadan and Ahvaz - hillsides speckled with wild pistachio, ...
... years until it covered an area of 125 sq km. Somewhere down the track it was destroyed and buried in sand and dust until what we saw today was rediscovered in the 1930. Amazing huh. After that we drove to two further places called Naqsh-e Rostam and Naqsh-e Rajab one of which contained four ginormous stone carvings out of a sheet of rock. There was also a person offering camel rides in the car park - not the most authentic of settings. NB: The next ...
