Yazd is a city deep in the dry-lands of Iran with the minimum amount of rain or snow in a year which most likely would have turned this city into hot ruins over its 5000 years of history. However, being located around a hot desert has its own perks and it’s lead to the people of Yazd mastering the art of architecture to survive the harsh environment. For this reason, Yazd has been called a marvel of adobe engineering and mud-brick houses and walls and wind catchers. Today’s well-known hotels in Yazd have mostly renovated remnants or of yesterday’s unparalleled traditional Persian houses built for Khan’s or noblemen. A trip to Iran can only be announced “remarkable and indelible” if you book a room in one of these Yazd hotels, which, by the way, have more to offer than just mud-brick walls and cozy yards.

This hotel has unfortunately only three rooms so if you’re planning to visit Yazd in a busy time, you need to book a room way before you get there. Each room is specially designed and has its own name based on the design. All rooms have an indoor fridge, a TV, and a closet. Despite having only three rooms, Narenjestan Hotel gifts its inhabitants a tranquil, relaxing, and friendly atmosphere unseen in any other hotels in Yazd. The rooms are clean and cozy. Sadly, no room has a separate bathroom and you will need to share a bathroom with other guests but perhaps, this is the biggest downfall of this historical hotel. The traditional yard with mud-brick walls and color-glassed windows of the rooms encompassing the area and the essential Persian Hooz Che or the small pool in the center of the yard scream the friendliness and the warmness of this settlement. The owners of Narenjestan Hotel, a very kind Persian couple, do go out of their line to help tourists and visitors and they speak English flawlessly, one of whom also happens to be a tour guide and can arrange tours and accompany you through the ancient city of Yazd.
