Located in the heart of the historical village of Kandovan, Laleh Kandovan Rocky Hotel is the third rocky hotel in the world with mountainous and beautiful nature. This five-star hotel with its strange and unimaginable architecture, is 40 km away from Tabriz. This unique hotel has 40 rooms made out of natural stone, including Jacuzzis and all modern amenities.

Climatic Conditions in Kandovan
Kandovan village is located two thousand meters above sea level. In winter and autumn, the climate of Kandovan is frigid; this has led to a significant reduction in the number of passengers in the colder months of the year. With the decrease of tourists in the city, Tabriz hotels and Laleh Kandovan hotel consider special discounts to attract more travelers.
The best time to travel to Tabriz is in winter and autumn in terms of the cost of hotel accommodation, but the best time in terms of weather is summer and spring. Of course, in this period, due to the increase in the number of passengers, room prices in Tabriz hotels are offered without discounts and can be rather costly. The choice of travel time depends on the interests of travelers. If you want to reduce your travel expenses, travel in winter. If the cold weather is unbearable for you, you can travel in summer, which offers cool and pleasant weather due to the mountainous nature of Kandovan.
