Heritage Hotel to avoid
Living through its old glory fame, this hotel is indeed quite a marvel of architecture which portrays the Pakistani culture for the foreign eye. Having said that many travelers will realize that at a first glance it would seem as a grand luxury hotel and although its is that it has forgotten the core values of a the hospitality industry. Upon a closer inspection you can clearly see the neglect of proper cleanliness which is disguised by the allure of luxury which in my perspective is a major concern as the hygienic condition of a luxury hotel should not be comprised at any level. Moreover the hotel requires some essential updates as the climate control system was not properly functioning and even the lobby was extremely chilly. The hotel is renovating into new ideas like offering local mobiles to its customer but its priority is all wrong. In conclusion being priced at around $200 is not justified as it value at current state is no more that $120 only due to the cultural charm.

It’s a very nice hotel and good service. My stay was satisfactory. The only thing which I don’t like is that WiFi coverage is poor in the rooms away from lobby area. I couldn’t use hotel WiFi and consumed mobile roaming data on hotspot.

Serena Hotel Islamabad
Arrived At the Hotel . Very strong Secuirty Barriers Etc. However advised we where checking in and they asked the driver to park the car and for us to walk upstairs i later found out that the car is allowed up aslong as you baggage is offloaded downstairs. In this process my shows went missing however they where found a few days later. Check in was very efficent there are 2 wings the new one and the old one i belive there is only executive rooms in the new wing. I stayed in the old wing the room was slighly tired furniture looked old but i belive this was there style bathrooms where lovely and service was amazing . I would say the food was a bit hit and miss so i stuck to simple toast and Tea. Hotel car is very expensive i suggest using an external company or metro cab they have all new corrolas and hondas and very cheap. Ok guys enjoy hope this this is usefull

Worst experince
One of the worst experince, the hotel staff don't know how to talk while coming back at 2AM, they stopped me from entering the elevator as they assumed I have single occpancy.

Dated but Good
There aren't too many hotels to choose from in Islamabad, and I'd imagine that the Serena is probably one of the nicest in the area. The common areas (lobby, restaurants, etc.) are beautiful. The rooms leave a little room to be desired, as they are certainly dated. The Serena is relying heavily on novelty and availability, but could desperately use some remodeling of the rooms. Overall, I'd stay here again. The service was great -- the front desk recommended the Monal for dinner, and it was a great recommendation.
