Where to stay in Shiraz?
Shiraz has many nice hotels with different categories for people with different budgets.
For example, Zandieh and Grand's hotel are the best 5 * hotels in Shiraz. Zandieh is located in the old part of the city so you need to walk only 5 minutes to get the sightseeing, and the Grand hotel located near the Qoran gate in a nice location.
