Every city in Iran is known for a reason; Tehran for its vast urban area, Isfahan for Naghsh-e Jahan Square, Shiraz for Persepolis, Tabriz for its Grand Bazaar and Qazvin for the Alamut Castle of Assassins. This formidable structure along with several other fortresses were used as hideaways for a group of professional assassins who masterminded many high-profile political hits of the age. But Qazvin has a lot to offer besides its castles. Not many people know that Qazvin once was the capital of Iran and one of its main economic and cultural centers. Taking a Qazvin tour, you’d see that the city’s many monuments attest to the primacy of Qazvin in Iranian history. As a result, Qazvin tourist attractions host thousands of people from different nations every year. Housing such a great number of travelers is a challenge but Qazvin is well prepared by offering many exciting accommodation choices. Qazvin hotels and hostels are numerous and distinctive. Hotels, hostels and guesthouses in Iran are either in the form of little or grand traditional houses or built in a fashion to conform to the requirements of modern designs. And Qazvin isn’t an exception to this rule. A great hotel in Qazvin is the Traditional Behrouzi Hotel which is in fact an old house with ravishing Iranian architecture. A couple of years ago it was refurnished and turned into a comfortable and delightful little hotel. Another great hotel in Qazvin worth mentioning is Marmar Hotel which is a modern four-star hotel in a perfect location.
