Pearl Continental Hotel, Muzaffarabad
Located atop a hill, Pearl Continental Hotel, Muzaffarabad offers panoramic views of the Kashmir Mountains. This 5-star property boasts a restaurant, fitness centre and free Wi-Fi...
Dewan E Khas
This friendly hotel is one of the few in Skardu to remain open year-round. The plush, carpeted rooms are warm and comforting with satellite TV and bathrooms featuring bathtubs and showers...
This skinny, high-rise hotel was being renovated at the time of research and the rooms with TVs should be worth inspecting.
The Indus, west of Yadgar Chowk, is a great value midrange hotel with spotless doubles, some with squat toilet and others with sit-down flush toilet. There's a VIP room out the back with TV, carpet and good views for Rs700...
Hilton International Hotel & Restaurant
The cheekily named Hilton is not quite five star and the rooms have deteriorated and are overpriced. Be careful of the switches and wiring if you do stay here.
A little further from the bazaar and with a similar view of the Indus River to the PTDC, Concordia has good-value standard rooms, though check the mattress for comfort. The deluxe rooms in the new wing are fabulous, with excellent views...
Hotel Sadpara International
Unfortunately, the simple rooms, a few doubles with TV, and restaurant are all looking very neglected and unkempt.
Napwd Baltoro Resthouse
Three kilometres south of the bazaar is the NAPWD Baltoro Resthouse, but public transport is nonexistent.
Ptdc K2 Motel
Most of the rooms are huge and comfortable, though the plumbing is diabolical so check the shower before you settle in...
Hunza Inn 5 Brothers
The run-down, rather filthy rooms with squat toilet and cold shower make this option a last resort.
Shangri La Hotel
Shangri-La Hotel is a downmarket place by the bus stop north of the bridge. It has small rooms with squat toilets.
Baltistan Tourist Cottage
Easily the best budget hotel in town with clean rooms, good food and manager Mohammad Iqbal, a great source of budget-minded help. This is also the home of Ali Haider, a recommended mountain guide.
This large hotel boasts magnificent views in addition to its spacious rooms and better-than-average restaurant. It's a 10-minute walk uphill from the bazaar.
One of numerous hotels in the budget category that will charge Rs300 to Rs500 for a room either side of the summer season but will happily treble these prices in summer. Basic rooms with less than basic bathrooms and only occasional hot water.
Panorama Hotel & Restaurant
The Panorama's aspect over the valley is very pleasing and the wide, wire-screened verandas are comfortable vantage points. All rooms are air cooled, and the 10 deluxe rooms have tubs in the bathroom...
Passu Peak Inn
The rooms at this small hotel, 1.5km north of the village, are spartan but spotless with cold showers. Hot water plumbing is planned!
Hotel Continental Besham
This hotel is large (40 rooms) and central with a loquacious and friendly manager. It is the only place in Besham that can boast reliable air-con, and the spacious, carpeted rooms have cable TV and clean bathrooms. The restaurant is also very good.
Hotel Al Hamra
Mingora & Saidu Sharif
For the price, this hotel's reach is slightly beyond its grasp, but rooms are nevertheless comfy and clean. The side street location cuts down on noise while still keeping you near the heart of the action.
Hunza View Hotel
Situated below the telephone exchange, Hunza View has rooms with satellite TV and valley views and, with its souvenir shop, is geared for groups. It has a good restaurant, but presents a long uphill walk to the bazaar.
The TV-equipped rooms are downstairs and so are considerably cooler in summer; in addition, some downstairs rooms have double beds. All rooms have a telephone. There's a decent restaurant churning out Pakistani and Chinese meals.
Swat View Hotel
Mingora & Saidu Sharif
You get a mixed bag at this hotel. Rooms are generously-sized and of fair quality, but although the staff are friendly they could do with putting the broom about a bit more than they currently do...
Zam Zam Hotel
Small, passably clean rooms have hot showers and there's a restaurant on site. It's hidden away, 50m west of the bridge.
By the road, 3km south of town, is a PYHA Hostel, in a state of disrepair.
Green Hills Hotel
Dasu & Komila
Basic rooms and shared toilet.
The Hotel Serenity can be found at the back of a shopping arcade - apparently the only large building to remain standing, and displaying some impressive cracks. The spacious, clean and quiet rooms have morning and evening hot water...
