هتل نووتل and هتل ایبیس
In front of the Main Terminal of Imam Khomeini International Airport
The good news is that now Tehran has two hotels of international standard, an Ibis and a Novotel. Both have exactly the same features of any Ibis or Novotel around the world. They are brand new, having opened in October 2015. However, they are at IKA (Imam Khomeini Airport), a good 50km out of town. If you have a very early flight, it may be a good idea to sleep there already since traffic can be unpredictable in and out of the city. It is also a good strategy if you have a long connection and do not feel like undergoing thru the whole hassle of getting to a hotel in central or northern Tehran. Let’s hope more of these hotels will open in more central locations.
