I stayed at Hotel Faran during Dec 08 whilst visiting Karachi. i didnt know much about it before, but was told it was a basic budget hotel. That is exactly what it is. I stayed in a twin room which had fairly comfortable beds, a tv, a fridge with mini bar, good wardrobe space. The staff were very helpfu

Stayed for 3 days, it is more suited to people with average budget. Good proximity to Karachi airport surronded by good take aways/restauarnt i.e Karachi Food, Dehli sweet & Kfc.Staff are responsive however some miserable. Carpet is not very clean, bathroom/showers are very outdated. Room cleaning is done everyday, double room is a reasonable size with TV, twin sofa and a good size wardrobe. Air condition is very noisy however no load shedding was experienced. Complementry breakfast choice of continental and Pakistani version Paratha/omelette. Price is very reasonable, laundry service excellent. Not suited to families as a vaste number of tourists and business men dominate the hotel.

Room Tip: Side rooms are quiter, would recommend second/third floor. View many rooms before accepting; do not...

First and formost BEWARE of the complimentery water in the fridge. ITS NOT FREE!!!! Like most hotel where you are left water in the fridge i thought the same as there was no sign to state this bottle of water was chargable and on my checkout i was presented with a bill of 300 rupree for a bottle of water (normal charge of a bottle of water in the shops in 40 rupee!! i did state there wasn't any poster/information stating of this charge and still i was charged! ok moving on to the hotel itself. The free WIFI they mention the only place where can get this SLOW! Wifi is in the reception area only. Once i had checked in and got to the third floor and in my room the hallway itself had a strong smell of damp. The room itself did have the same smell. once in the room it didn't feel clean and i would class it as very very very basic. the TV channels where basic and only had 4 channels working. None international!! the fridge in the room wasn't clean and small! As i walked into the bathroom i found a huge fly on the floor dead!! complementary breakfast was very limited to just parata, tea and scrammed eggs. All other times i saw the restaurant empty which did riase questions as too why but there are plenty of other restaurants close by that you can go too. Despite everything i've given a rating of average for this hotel. Its basic, in a good location and was in a cleap budget. As the saying goes you pay for what you get! if your on a budget like i was you'll accept this hotels faults. Hopefully the management will see this review and might decide to do something about its issues!

Room Tip: stay in the side rooms or at the back where its quiet and away from the very busy main road at the f...

On my very first visit to Karachi, i have stayed in Hotel Faran and found the best deal in town. Staff is very much cooperative and nice. Location is good and you may find taxi/cab at main gate. It is very economical against quality service, good food and nice helping staff

Firstly I with the name I thought it will not be a good experience. But it is an excellent choice. In budget, quality services etc.. Most of all their wifi worked awesome. Taxi/cab is available right outside from the door. If you want a metro cab it has a counter besides the reception of hotel. In hotel restaurant with quality and budgeted food. I like the taste though. Breakfast complimentary. Lift facility and ATM Machine is in next building.

Room Tip: Try to ask for the room with the windows. Because they also have the rooms without windows.
