Getting Familiar with Unique International Rocky hotel in Iran


The Laleh Kandovan International Rocky Hotel, in the province of East Azerbaijan in north-western Iran, is unusual in itself and fascinating in terms of its location.

The hotel, which opened in 2007, is on the edge of the mountain village of Kandovan, 27 miles south of the city of Tabriz.

Incorporated into caves that climb across the hillside, the hotel has 10 rooms so far, with another 30 planned, and a large restaurant. All the rooms have under-floor heating and some have whirlpool baths.

There are Persian rugs on the floor and the walls have recessed lighting. The decor is stylishly minimalist, using plenty of tiles and letting the rough rock sides do the talking.

    Thanks to the designers and builders. I hope some day soon I be visiting the hotel. We need more of these different types of hotels in Iran to attack more tourism from abroad.

      Agree with you.
      However, I trust you meant to attract rather than attack here.
      An understandable typo.
