A new era for the hotel industry in Iran

HAMZEHIran Hotel Association‭ (‬IHA‭) ‬has launched a new plan to introduce the country`s hotel facilities along with the arrival of post-sanction‭. ‬Jamshid Hamzehzadeh head of IHA indicated that 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 ‬in 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. ‬

    Dear Sirs,
    I would like to get in touch with the Iranian Hotel Association.
    I am University professor of Hotel Management, a long time member and former vice-president of the Croatian Hotel Association, and for 8 years a member of Executive Board of International Hotel and Restaurant Association, a member of the European Hotel Managers Association and a former general manager of the deluxe hotel Esplanade in Zagreb, Croatia. I have been lecturing in Tehran since 2009 at the Master Degree program (Hotel Management) and I am coming to Tehran again at the end of January.
    I believe that the exchange of experience would be useful and interesting.
    With best regards,
    PhD Amelia Tomašević
