Take the elevator to the top floors, where you can grab a bite to eat some 300 m (984 ft) above ground, or stop at the public art gallery surrounded by sprawling vistas of Tehran. With a total height of 435 m (1,427 ft), this structure remains one of the tallest tower in the world.

    Kind of a popular place to visit, but to be honest, just a place that gives a bird's-eye view of Tehran. Overall recommendation: no bad, but nothing special.  more »

    Good way to.see the entire city of Tehran. Cool elevator that speeds up and down the tall tower. I feel that it's a normal city tower in any other city. Good thing that Tehran has a unique view  more »

    Very nice complex including an exhibition Hall a series of auditorium and the tower. Nice garden with lots of roses and pretty network of water channels and fountains. Nice view of the snow capped mountain in the background. We went for a concert of classical Italian music that was very good, then to the rotating restaurant that has a nice buffet and a great view of the city! My wife's attire was not up to norms (it was very hot) but they kindly let her thru. Friendly people everywhere!

    Landmark tower in Tehran Located in the centre of Tehran city Probably one of the must go when visiting. It's the landmark you could see from most part of the city Great view to see the entire Tehran! You can choose to dine at the rotating restaurant up, enjoy the buffet dinner plus the view, nice combination, just it's much more costlier Food is great though.

    A bit overrated. View is nice but not that good. Little information about construction or Tehran...

    A nonsense place! The terrible management, They treated people like they were potatoe sacks!! Absolutely shameful for a sight where is claimed to be the symbolic monument of the capital city of Tehran!!!

    Perfect place to look at the city from the high. Has cosy cafés and also exhibitions inside.

Where to stay in Tehran

The northern districts of Tehran possess a more suburban, cosmopolitan feel, and a more spacious form, with a number of accommodations geared towards international tourism. Luxury hotels with pools overlooking the parks sit alongside some more basic and humble offerings, usually located on the lesser side streets. The southern districts offer a livelier experience, where guesthouses, hostels, and simple hotels line the confusing bundle of winding streets. Of course, some areas of the south open up a little, and here you'll find a good number of standard and mid-range hotels with varying levels of amenities.
