The Park Plaza Lahore is the ‘budget’ option for business travellers in Lahore, and is positioned at a lower level than the Avari (very good) and the Pearl Continental (overrated, with tired rooms). On that front, it performs admirably. Rooms are large and clean (although there is an overdose of laminate flooring), well appointed (DVD player, kettle in the room) and service is prompt and polite. Bathrooms are also well appointed. There is a gym and swimming pool, and conferencing facilities. Location is also fairly central.
On the minus side, the (free) wifi is patchy in terms of speed, and the room’s general upkeep was a bit disappointing. The desk lamp in my room was not working, and there were issues with water pressure in the bathroom, which maintenance personnel were unable to resolve after multiple attempts. There was also an odd smell (possibly damp) in one of the conference rooms. Lahore culture being what it is, there was a surreal moment as our meeting was briefly interrupted by wedding guests accidentally walking in to the wrong room.
Staff is generally courteous and helpful. Check-in and check-out were both smooth. Overall, not a bad “budget” option to consider if spending a couple of days in Lahore on business.More
