Where does the name Mahbibi come from?

Well, the word "Bibi" in our culture typically means grandmother, though it has got an old usage and fewer people use it anymore. But the concept traditionally implies a generous and kind-hearted old lady who is always welcoming others as guests, always cares a lot about everybody, and is well experienced to get good advice from her in all aspects of a good life. the word "Mah", on the other hand, means "the moon", which symbolized prettiness, beauty, and cleanness in Iranian culture. Normally, when we want to refer to the beauty of someone (especially women), we may say she looks like the moon. So, Mahbibi makes the combination of a welcoming, pretty, and experienced lady who you can stay with warmly for some time; as you definitely will with us in Mahbibi 😉

Where does the name Sarv come from?

Sarv is the Persian name for Cypress tree. In our culture and literature, cypress trees are quite important in several senses. They are evergreen trees that may never sleep or lose their greenness; they are very strong, as the trunk gets quite thick after some years and the roots go deep and spread largely in the ground; despite the strong body and roots, they are still very flexible and will not break or fall down even by strong winds. All these make these trees the symbol of longevity and life in our literature. Also, cypress trees grow quite high and put their tip (head) to the sky, which is supposed to be the symbol of freedom and not belonging to this world.

Anyway, we have three old cypress trees in our courtyard and we try to live like cypress trees as well. This is why we name this hostel Sarv.

Best Location in Isfahan

Our hostels are located in the very center of Isfahan city. That makes it quite easy to reach all the highlighted visiting sites and historical places. So, you may get to Naqshe-Jahan Square in 10 minutes by walking through the bazaar; to Khaju Bridge in 15 minutes by walking straight through a nice green street; and to Jameh Mosque and the Jewish neighborhood -Joubareh- in less than 20 minutes of walking in a straight way. All of these routes you can also go by car or a taxi as well for a cheap price. Our two hostels are very close to each other (less than 200 meters) and the guests can easily shift between the two in case of some events and gatherings held in either of the hostels for special ceremonies or parties. Also, Isfahan’s two main bus terminals, the train station, and the airport are easily accessible in less than 30 minutes from our location. On the other hand, there are a lot of restaurants, fast food places, coffee shops, supermarkets, groceries, fruit and vegetable shops (and almost every other thing you may need) all around our locations.
