A member of Iran’s hotel industry has defended the quality of services in Iranian hotels, vowing to pay the travel costs of any expert who could assess a foreign hotel of the same level as better in terms of hospitality. Mohammad Ali Farrokhmehr, head of Tehran Hoteliers Association, made the bet in response to claims that Iranians choose to travel abroad because the hotel services they receive in Iran are poor compared with the prices. 
“This has nothing to do with hotel facilities and the reason for outbound travel is the appeal of those countries,” he said in a talk to ILNA.  To prove his claim, he said he would stay in a four-star hotel in Sweden, or a three-star hotel in Paris or Turkey, together with an expert to compare them with examples in Tehran.
