Staying in a traditional house is definitely a highlight, there are even a few traditional houses that are set up like hostels, with dorm rooms and cheap, affordable prices. These places, though 'traditional' are usually catered for Western tourists as well as local tourists and have both squat toilets and western toilets - just make sure you don't flush the toilet paper. A simply, Iranian buffet breakfast is usually included in the price and consists of boiled eggs, tea, bread, cucumber and tomatoes and sometimes fruit. The accommodation usually also includes wifi, though you will need a VPN to access a lot of sites, towels, toiletries, air-conditioning or fans and free city information. The bus and train station is situated about 30-40 minutes from the old town, it isn't recommended staying in accommodation in this area as there are no tourist attractions. Women must still wear the hi-jab / head scarf in the common area of all accommodation.
