Home stay

Samovar House

Welcome to Samovar House, a cosy homestay in the historical heart of Shiraz. We are a Russian-Iranian couple and we live in this relatively new, but yet old house with a green and leafy courtyard. The homestay is a spacious and private room on the first floor with a small terrace and view over the rooftops of Sang-e Siyah district. We live on the first floor and our cat Pus has a warm place in the courtyard.


Samovar House is our home and we would like you to feel here at home as well. The Russian side of our household is Maria, a Moscow native, and she is studying Persian literature in the University of Shiraz. Peyman, aka Mrpersepolis, is a tour guide with years of experience. He is the man to ask anything about Shiraz. In Samovar House you are welcome to our homey breakfast, warm tea and most importantly Peyman’s mom’s delicious marmalade.

In Samovar House you are welcome to cook your own meals and we will happily tell you about Iranian cuisine. One of Shiraz’s oldest and most fascinating fruit, vegetables and fish bazaars is just a few minutes away. There are also fresh bread bakeries in the area.

Your room in the Samovar House is located on the first floor and has a double bed, study table, a large window and a view over the rooftops of the Sang-e Siyah historical district. There is a heater for cool winter nights and in the summer, you can sip a cool lemonade sitting on your outdoor terrace. Bathroom, kitchen and toilet facilities are on the ground level. Price: €10 per person (room is maximum for three guests, single guests travelling alone pay €10 for the entire room)
