Motel Rahat Mary Reviews
Dated motel with 'lively' entertainment May 24, 2012
The Motel Rahat is one of the few choices of accommodation in Mary. We spent one night here only, not sure of the nightly rate as we stayed there as part of a tour. The rooms are a bit dated, with peeling wallpaper and old bathtubs. The hotel is on the edge of town next to an truckstop. Next door to the hotel there is a well-stocked grocery store and a restaurant serving shashlik & beer on tap.
The most interesting part of the hotel is the bar downstairs. We walk in to this place, which is decorated with pulsing LED lights and full of Iranian truckers getting frisky with 'local talent'. Just to make sure there wasn't any misunderstanding what this place was, there were red lights on the walls. The stereo was blaring hip hop Russian and Persian music.. the truckers were dancing with the ladies (some were quite stunning...) and every now and then a couple would disappear through the back door to who knows where...
