Dir Hotel

Band-e Haibat, is a chaikana and the only place to sleep and eat. A mat on the floor costs 100Af/person, and meals are 120-150Af. They also have 3 very basic dirty rooms in a building next door, ambitiously named Hotel de Reves dream hotel. While you can have a more private room here, it's also just mats on the floor, and also 100Af/person; most people prefer the much warmer main room at Dir.
