5 star hotel
Centrally located in the heart of the city, the 5-star Pearl Continental Hotel, Peshawar offers 4 dining options and an outdoor swimming pool. Guests enjoy free Wi-Fi and free parking on site...
A good budget option in the north of town, the friendly Abshar has an excellent riverside location (abshar means 'riverside'). Rooms are good value for the price, many with balconies.
There are just five rooms at this place overlooking the busy junction, all new and clean with carpets and adequate bathrooms. The restaurant is good, but road noise might be an issue for some.
A popular budget choice, rooms are packed in here pretty tightly, but are decent enough...
Fairly decent rooms although a little on the gloomy side, with attached restaurant.
Caravan's has three immaculately clean, nicely decorated rooms with shared hot shower, a relaxing sitting area, a book exchange and good food, all of which conspire to make you want to stay longer than you planned...
An excellent option, with a handful of rooms looking onto a delightfully peaceful honeysuckle-ringed garden. Rooms are tidy and spacious, with warm showers and sit-down toilets.
The rooms here are better than average for the price tag, with decent fixtures and fittings...
Drosh & the Shishi Valley
Booked through the C&W assistant engineer in Chitral town.
This former guesthouse of the Nawab of Dir has three annexes enclosing a small garden, with something to suit most budgets...
Signed opposite the Mastuj Tourist Guesthouse, this offers similar fare, reasonably basic, but clean and friendly.
A new hotel with a distinct red-tiled front, the name suggests that it gives foreigners what they want - apparently a surfeit of elaborately swagged curtains and faux gilded ceilings...
Green Hill Hotel has basic rooms and a restaurant. It might not accept foreigners.
An old Peshawar favourite, Green's is a reliably comfortable place to lay your head...
Mingora & Saidu Sharif
Fronted in green glass and sat on a busy road, but with rooms far enough back from the traffic to cut down on noise. Rooms are generously sized, with fairly new fixtures and fittings.
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.
Friendly management make up for the rooms in this hotel on a noisy bazaar road lined with car workshops. Rooms are fine but nothing special, which goes for most of the cluster of cheapies also along this road.
At the southern end of town, this friendly hotel is another decent budget option...
There are big doubles here, well-matched to the price. There's also a slightly musty atmosphere, although it doesn't seem to bother the staff or the guests, who usually have the place bursting to capacity in summer...
The distinctively decorated foyer leads to simple, characterless rooms with cold showers, though you can pay an extra hundred a head for carpets and hot water to cushion your stay a little more.
If you fancy neither the hustle of Saddar or the Old City, this hotel, closer to the fancy shops (and a few restaurants) of University Rd, might be for you...
A welcome recent addition to Dir's sleeping options, Green Hills has fairly simple but comfy rooms and bathrooms with gallons of hot water. Rooms at the back have balconies with lovely views over the Dir River...
Next to Mastuj fort on the outskirts of the village, this is Chitral district's plushest hotel...
