    What a lovely homestay experience with Eli & Esi. I felt like home from the first second entering the apartment. Both were so welcoming and friendly. I am vegetarian so the hosts were cooking vegetarian Persian dishes with me and showed me around the city where to find good vegetarian dishes. Eli & Esi also were really helpful for information on travelling and tips for the city. I can highly recommend this place if you are looking for a heartfelt welcome and lovely stay! I will def. come back :)

    Ehsan, Elmira and their family were Iran's culture in a compact form. Friendly, welcoming, helpful, strong inclination towards art and culture and extremely entrepreneurial in nature.

    I will strongly recommend this place to anyone who has to stop by in Tehran and also needs clear planning on how to go about exploring Iran. Trust me they will do more than what you will expect from them.

    They are a very fun loving a easy going family and you shall be welcomed into their home warmly and also by their visiting friends. I met few of them and all of them were extremely talented and I cherished the conversations I had with all of them.

    You may also go for the short tour(s) they organize. It is a very good way to make use of the time to explore Tehran. And if you want to freeze the memories you make with them in Tehran, you should seek Ehsan's help to make a small video for you.

    Trust me you will enjoy it :)

    I hope you have a wonderful time with them and enjoy your stay in the beautiful country!!

    We really enjoyed our stay with Ehsan and Elmira. Super nice and creative folks who make you feel at home right away in their spacious apartment! The area is also central in Teheran and luckily quite calm. Metro is 10 min walk away.

    Eli and Esi are the most fantastic hosts. Their home is large and warm and full of music and film and great conversation. They go out of their way to make certain you have a memorable time in Tehran. The days I spent with them and their friends were just wonderful. Marks out of 10? 11

    The apartment of Eli and Esi is really amazing. It´s a great place to start to get an immersion in the culture, music, cinema and the hospitality of this amazing country. They are both really nice people and also tolerant. We are a family of four, with two children, that they didn´t stop crying during 3 nights (yeah! what a nightmare), they didn´t complain once, and they understood it completely without any long faces (which we would have taken for granted). I can only say, if you are in doubt, go to Eli and Esi. Even the food they cook is great. Unluckily we didn´t make the day tours they offer, which we guess must be also be a highlight. I almost forgot, they gave us a lot of tips for place to visit in Tehran, and also the rest of our journey. They also organized our transportation arrangements (taxis, overnight train from Shiraz to Tehran and many others). Thanks a lot to both of you, and I hope to see you any time soon. All the best. Guille, Martina, Juan & Moira
