Boutique Hotels in Tehran

With the future development of large scale (hopefully) international chain hotels in Tehran, I was wondering if anybody has information on Boutique Hotels in Tehran as I have some friends coming over in December looking to stay at some stylish hotels. Any information I would be grateful.

Taken from Wikipedia.

Boutique hotels are always individual and focused on offering their services in a comfortable, intimate, and welcoming setting,[citation needed] so they are therefore extremely unlikely to be found amongst the homogeneity of large chain hotel groups. Guest rooms and suites may be fitted with telephony and Wi-Fi Internet, air-conditioning, honesty bars and often cable/pay TV, but equally may have none of these, focusing on quiet and comfort rather than gadgetry. Guest services are often attended to by 24-hour hotel staff. Many boutique hotels have on-site dining facilities, and the majority offer bars and lounges that may also be open to the general public.[2] Despite this definition, the popularity of the boutique term and concept has led to some confusion about the term. Boutique hotels have typically been unique properties operated by individuals or companies with a small collection. However, their successes have prompted multi-national hotel companies to try to establish their own brands in order to capture a market share.[2] The most notable example is Starwood Hotels & Resorts Worldwide's W Hotels, ranging from large boutique hotels, such as the W Union Square NY, to the W 'boutique resorts' in the Maldives, to true luxury boutique hotel collections, such as the Bulgari collection, Kimpton Hotels & Restaurants, SLS Hotels, Epoque Hotels,Thompson Hotels, Joie De Vie hotels, The Keating Hotel, and O Hotel, among many others.

Actually, the former Shah Abbas Hotel (now Abbasi Hotel) in Isfahan was a boutique hotel when it first opened in the late 1960s. There were never any plans to have it turn into a chain or be managed by a chain.

The hotel still has a boutique air about it, but the quality of service, amenities and food is now much worse.
