Travel to Abbasi Hotel
The Abbasi #Hotel is located in an opulent 300-year-old building in the heart of Isfahan. Built during the Safavid dynasty of King Sultan Hossein, the Abbasi Hotel was originally a #caravanserai, a stopping point for merchants traveling along the #Silk_Road, providing shelter for camels and horses and rest for the traders.
The Abbasi Hotel was renovated in the 1950s by French #architect Andre Godard who fought to preserve this piece of Isfahan’s history. Guests can stay in one of two wings, old and new, but the former is the place to truly experience a #Persian Caravanserai.
Upon arrival, guests will be greeted with a burst of emerald green, blue, gold, and orange on painted walls of florals and depictions of men and women of years past. Walking through the halls, guests will find miniature paintings, shimmering mirror work, glittering chandeliers, and small alcoves with exquisite architectural details.
Nearby, guests can explore the old bazaar where the merchants of long ago were able to sell their wares. Chat with the locals and pick up trinkets and then find your way back through the labyrinth of lanes to take a dip in the pool at Abbasi Hotel.
