As you walk along the cobblestone path to the hotel entrance, there is a beautiful view of the white corridor. This eagerness to walk through this corridor distracts the viewer from paying attention to the two adjoining rooms at the entrance. Along the way, another beauty suddenly takes over; An old staircase, in a foyer surrounded by a kitchen and a room attached to the entrance hall. The pool of water between this foyer and the geranium vases around it is the best image that can satisfy you from being in this place.
Nizam al-Islam House is now being used as a traditional four-star hotel after a major renovation. The traditional Keryas Hotel is a 15-room hotel with good accommodation facilities. One of the advantages of this hotel is its proximity to Naghsh Jahan Square and its numerous historical monuments.
