Constructed in the 1820s, Ghasr Monshi Palace is a remainder of the Qajar Dynasty. This magnificent edifice was one of the few houses of Fath’ Ali Shah (1772 – 1834).
The 24 rooms of the edifice with traditional layouts are decorated in Safavid (1501-1736) and Qajar architecture and are on Iran’s national heritage list. They are single, double, triple and suites named Safavid, Qajar, Ayneh, Shahin, Mahtab, and Delneshin suite, on three floors.

The Ghasr Monshi alley connects the hotel to the grand bazaar of Isfahan, home to handmade artifacts. On the alley, there is a Zurkhana or a traditional Persian gymnasium. Once you get to Bazaar in 20 steps, the alley ends at the famous Naghshe Jahan Square, which is the center of all economic activities of the Bazaars and houses to some religious manifestation of the Safavid era like the Aliqapu Mosque. You also access the Zayanderud River with 600 meters. This magnificent palace was once the house of a king, no doubt that staying at a king's home is a pleasant experience.
