Most Iranians have squat toilets at home, but the majority of better hotels have thrones or a choice of loos. Almost all public toilets are squats and while some are regularly cleaned, others are very definitely not. Still, there are usually enough options that you won't have to enter anywhere too stinky. Mosques, petrol stations, bus and train stations and airport terminals always have toilets, sans TP.

Fortunately, buying toilet paper is easier than it once was. Most of the bit-of-everything grocery stores stock it, and if you can't find any there's always the ubiquitous box of tissues. Many midrange hotels have joined their top-end counterparts in supplying toilet paper, though sometimes you'll need to ask. Most plumbing is not designed for paper so put your used sheets in the bucket next to the toilet.
