IRAN : NIAYESH BOUTIQUE HOTEL IN SHIRAZ

On the last night of my 5-day-trip in Iran, I opted to stay at Niayesh Boutique Hotel in Shiraz.  From my personal research prior to my trip, I found out that it’s one of the favourite accommodation of tourists and even backpackers who are most of the time, budget-conscious like me.
