A new era for the hotel industry in Iran


A new era for the hotel industry in Iran

Iran Hotel Association‭ (‬IHA‭) ‬has launched a new plan to introduce the country’s hotel facilities along with the arrival of post-sanction, h‭ead of IHA ‬Jamshid Hamzehzadeh said.



According to Hamzehzadeh, there is a big opportunity for Iran hotel industry at this time to upgrade potentials and meet the increasing demand of travel to Islamic Republic of Iran appropriately‭.‬
IHA is a unified association which consists of 31‭ ‬hotel unions across the country‭. ‬IHA is recently setting up a website‭ (‬www.hotelro.ir‭) ‬for its Irawnian hoteliers to sell the room to end users‭.
‬Mr‭. ‬Hamzezadeh said that this website will be upgraded in future and in cooperation with the foreign partners‭, ‬they will be able to accept non-Iranian tourist’s orders for accommodation‭.
‬“Everything depends on lifting the banking sanctions‭.‬”‭ ‬According the head of IHA‭.‬
Iran has 1,125‭ ‬hotels and guest houses‭, ‬of which only 130‭ ‬are four‭- ‬and five-star establishments‭. ‬The goal is to increase the number of quality hotels to 400‭ within 10‭ ‬years‭.‬
There are 550‭ ‬Hotel apartments as well and the IHA has received a lot of applications for consulting and constructing new accommodations recently‭, ‬Hamzezadeh said‭.
