Hotels in Tehran
Mashad Hotel Tehran
The Mashad Hotel Tehran is one of the more affordable hotels in Iran, in Tehran where hotels can be really expensive. According to a friend this hotel has clean rooms though, like many hotels in Iran, they need maintenance. As for a 3 star hotel in Iran, my friend thought it was a good deal. (I didn't stay myself in Tehran)
Kowsar Hotel Tehran
The Kowsar Hotel Tehran is one of the cheaper options to stay in Tehran. For the price you get reasonable clean rooms though a little small.
As many of the attractions in Tehran are on the north side of the city, the hotel is reasonable OK located.
Reviews of the hotel are mixed but I guess it depends on what you expect.

Hotels in Tabriz
One of the most celebrated Hotels in Tabriz in Iran is the Gostaresh Hotel. I spend here one night and I don't remember much of it, as I was on the way back to Turkey being very sick. I do remember the staff was helpful although they couldn't imagine why someone would travel by bicycle in weather like those days (it was February and there was son the road.
The room I got was clean and warm with plenty of hot water. But the next morning I left early by bus to the border and from there a bus back to Istanbul where I ended up in a hospital. I had a salmonella and amoeba bacteria in my body for around 2 or 3 months. However, the Gostaresh Hotel staff I won't easy forget and all that I wanted that night was a warm room and a good bed.
Hotels in Shiraz
I have memories of the Eram Hotel, I've spend here several days in bed with a serious infection that eventually lead me a week or 2 later into a hospital in Istanbul but that is a complete different story.
When I stayed here the room I had was neither large or small but had a clean bathroom.
Despite the fact the hotel is nearby for example the Hafez Tomb and the Saadi Tomb I didn't see neither of them (to weak to go out).
I also can't tell you about the onsite restaurant because I was too sick to eat much more than bread and tea.
But I do remember the staff was amazingly friendly and gave me advice where to find a doctor (which in the end I found with the help of a druggist). I would recommend this hotel in Shiraz very much.
