Introduction

About Saraye Amir

Behi-Shojai Historical House is a courtyard house located in the historical district of Kashan. The construction of the house dates back around 150 years back to Qajar Dynasty Period. Behi-Shojai Historical House is listed as a national heritage by Iranian Cultural Heritage and Tourism Organization and protected under the law. The conservation project took place between Spring 2016 until Autumn 2017 by designers Amir Shojai and Seyed Mehdi Roshan.

Saraye Amir is defined as an introvert house which tends to hide what exists inside, insisting on privacy and seclusion of the house. The beauty of the architecture could be observed only when you are inside the building or in its courtyard. The house is accessed from the street level and the central courtyard is below the ground level, referred to as a sunken courtyard, which not only provides ultimate privacy for those who stay, but especially has an extra passive cooling effect during hot seasons.

The idea in restoring this valuable house was to maintain its original architectural and cultural significance as a house. The now renovated boutique hotel accommodate modern amenities while preserving its classic function and charm.

Saraye Amir is a reminiscent of a traditional lifestyle where the family were spending time together and were in close contact with their sacred open spaces throughout their daily journeys around the house.

You are welcome to experience living in a traditional Iranian house, in a comfortable, cozy and friendly environment. Having travelled to numerous countries in Asia, Europe, Oceania and North America and stayed in countless hostels, guesthouses and hotels, now it is our turn to host you in our cozy boutique hotel.
