Accommodation & Hotels in Pakistan

As a medium-income nation with a sizable middle class and a thriving domestic tourist sector, Pakistan offers a good selection of hotels to suit all budgets. International visitors are often disappointed by the cleanliness of Pakistani hotels; although the linen is usually clean, the toilets may be a little shabby. Pakistan is now seeing a substantial drop in foreign tourist numbers; you may find yourself the lone visitor in the northern regions in particular.

Budget The most affordable hotels are typically located near major transportation hubs such as bus and railway terminals. Don’t be misled by a beautiful lobby; before checking in, request to view the room and inspect the mattresses, bathrooms, lighting, and other amenities. In this class, hot water and air conditioning will be considered extras.

The term “mid-range” refers to a broad range of hotels that are often featured in guidebooks or on the internet. All mid-range accommodations will have air conditioning and hot water; however, check to see whether they have a functioning generator; air conditioning is useless without power! Always inspect the room before paying – request a non-smoking room away from the street if possible – and negotiate for a better cost. PTDC (government-run) hotels are in the mid-range category and deserve particular note since they are often the town’s oldest hotel, in a great position, but the amenities will be showing their age. However, they are still a viable alternative, and reductions may be negotiated. The mid-range pricing ranges between Rs2,000 and Rs6,000 each night.

The Serenas, Pearl Continentals, and Marriotts are at the top of the scale. The Serena hotels are nearly always great, while the Pearl Continental hotels are more inconsistent (for example, the one in Rawalpindi is a little grungy, while the one in Muzaffarabad is quite beautiful). Security is highly apparent in high-end locations, with small armies of security personnel stationed around the perimeter. The cost of a night at a premium hotel in a major city ranges from Rs 6,000 to Rs 10,000.

Many tour books mention government rest houses, which are situated in remote and hilly regions and were constructed pre-independence and exude a charming English charm for local public employees to utilize on their trips. Previously, daring tourists could rent these locations for the night for about Rs1,000 and have a great time. However, because of the tourist slump, the forestry departments that run these places aren’t as concerned as they once were – phones will go unanswered, tourist information offices won’t have any information, and so on, so consider yourself lucky if you can get a reservation at a Government rest house.

When it comes to hotels, solo female travelers are at a disadvantage. In especially in cities, all cheap and many mid-range lodgings will be exclusively reserved for males, and hotel owners may be uneasy with the notion of an unaccompanied woman staying at their establishment. As a result, you may be compelled to stay in upper-midrange and high-end locations, which may eat into your budget even faster.

Note that in certain areas of Pakistan, the word “hotel” refers to smaller businesses, while “Guest House” refers to medium-sized establishments with a better quality. Also, eateries are often referred to as “hotels,” which may cause some misunderstanding.
