“No heat or hot water”
Reviewed 26 January 2010

The owner of the National Hotel is a cheap skate. He provides limited hot water and NO HEAT in the winter. The temperature outside was zero degrees and the hotel was freezing. The front door of lobby was broken and thus could not close. The owner would not fix it. So, the entire hotel was freezing and horrible. The staff complains constantly about how cheap he is with their salaries also. The staff is not happy working at the Naitonal Hotel, but jobs are scarce and they cannot afford to quit. But, if the owner would pay them better, they would be happier and so would the guests.

DO NOT eat in the hotel restaurant.. The food is old and the kitchen is filthy.

Reviewed 14 December 2009

Looking at any favourable reviews on this hotel then they must be out of date. Stayed Dec 2009 for two nights with 24 year old daughter. Not the cheapest by Pakistan standards but it was very poor. Room really grimy-worn everything-musty-bathroom terrible-tiorn curtains-cat dirt outside the room-more like a doss house. Showe hardly worked. Poor breakfast.
Staff ok but not really motivated
Changed rooms for second night. Better but hardly luxury.
HOWEVER-don't let this put you off Pakistan. People fabulous-although constantly mobbed & asked for photos off us with them. No hassle.. Cheap to live. Went to Pearl Continental for breakfast & dinner (talk about a contrast). Pakistani restaurant there was fabulous.
No problem getting over Indian border & ceremony good .

Ok there are problems there but you are safer on street there than in London or Manchester.

Go to Lahore but don't go to the National.

This hotel has very clean bedroom, but not so clean bathrooms. It is well located and there are dozens of restaurants very near-by. The hotel laundry does an extraordinary job of cleaning and pressing your dirty clothes.

Lock your passport and money in the safe downstairs as another guest had things stolen from her room.

I would return to this property because the staff was nice and the price was reasonable.
