Reza é muito prestativo. Está sempre disponível para ajudar. O quarto é muito bom e o apartamento fica a uma curta distância da estação do metrô.
Reza nous a très bien accueillis chez lui et s'est assuré que nous ne manquions de rien. Nous avions une chambre confortable. Nous étions effectivement très bien situé et étions très proche de la gare routière et du centre ville. Merci Reza.
Reza’s apartment is located at a convenient location close to metro station and the Azadi street. The place is clean and spacious. Reza was super responsive and helpful during my stay.
..as a experienced traveler I give the highest praise to Mohamad Reza, from airport pickup (sharp on time/luxe transport) to guide me trough the big city and small villages alike. Totally recommend Mohamad Reza, I know for sure, when in this beautiful country again?...I ask guidance from him
We spent really great time with Reza during our staying in Tehran. His apartment is great located and really comfortable. Reza was very helpful, shared many important information about the city and helped us book the bus tickets. We had a chance to meet his friends spent wonderful time with them and try really great Iranian food. I highly recommend Reza as a host!
Reza is a great host, he helped us with everything we need to start our iranian trip from the airport pickup to sim cards, helped us with bus ticket bookings to other cities, and the most important thing in Iran, our internet connection, etc. He even introduced us his group of friends that ended up being ours. Absolutely awesome host.
Reza's apartment was near the city & the airport, so commuting was easy with the metro nearby. He was very helpful in providing us with all the necessities for our journey. Homestay with Reza was the right chose that we had made.
You know, when you travel to a new country and know literally nobody, then having a host that guides you and spends time with you is priceless. Reza and I have grown very close in the short amount of time. It felt like we were students sharing the same flat together. We cooked, we ate out, we met friends (which were his friends but later became shared ones). He helped me organise everything I needed for a good life in Iran, from a SIM card and a bank account to booking bus tickets and recommended apps to use in the country ...
If I described him, I'd say he is a very calm person with a smooth voice, but he also has a quirky and crazy side with him which comes to surface in lucky moments.
Definitely reach out to him if you want to make your trip to Iran memorable!
Reza’s place is very cozy and quiet. Through Reza we got to experience Tehran in a way that we could have not imagined: lovely company, good food and access to local activities.
So thankful to you Reza! Until next time :)
Our stay went very well, he's really a super hot, he really helped us even to get SIM cards thank you again!!!
