This is probably one for Peter.

We have a night in Tehran in April but it seems to be impossible to find any accommodation using Travellerspoint's Booking.com connection. Is that because the US 'doesn't like' Iran and, since Booking.com's parent company is in the US (despite being based in the Netherlands itself), Booking.com is not allowed to offer accommodation in Iran or is there some other reason? We might have to try through Trip Advisor.

Excuse me, have you tried Iran Tours Online
This is a hotel link at their website. They seem to be a legitimate company.

Wishing you good luck in your trip! ;)

Yeah, I'm afraid so. Booking is a US company now and as a result they can't include Iran.

When we used to have Hostelworld properties, they did have Iran, Cuba, etc. in their inventory. Until they were bought out by a US company and that was the end of that as well. :(

Thanks Peter - thought so!

And thanks Victor - that's an excellent site for us. All we need is one hotel for one night in Tehran - the missus has already booked a sleeper train to the Turkmenistan border. :):)
