Dibai House is a beautiful hotel based on a restored safavid house in the centre of the city.
It was so interesting to stay in a different accommodation that mixes the comfort of a modern hotel with ancient Persian architecture.
1 Masjed Ali Alley, Haroonieh, Isfahan.
Isfahan is the most beautiful city I have seen on this earth. The architecture, especially the bridges across the wide river, the Hotel Abassi, and the Iman Square, which is unique, based on the old Persian style, but at the same time seemingly very modern. The city is very green and full of flowers, even in August, it's amazing. Everybody should wish to visit this great city at least once in their lifetime!
There are lots of places to buy things in Isfahan. Try the bazaar at Imam Square - a huge square where Shah Abbas watched polo games and parades from his palace, and where you can find some of the most famous mosques in Iran. In this bazaar there are people taking good care of old handicraft skills; you can see them working with textile printing, metal work, carpets, wood. There is no limit to what you can buy in this place.
The river has green and beautifully arranged parks alongside it, with big trees all the way, which you can walk under to enjoy the shade (necessary in summer). There is a lot of water in the river, surprisingly, since the city is situated in the desert. It was once a stop on the silk way to China and some of the bridges are from the 16th and 17th century. Their architecture is outstanding.
