For hundreds of years, Lahore has been the cultural centre of music, fashion and entertainment of the greater Punjab region. Today, it is the capital of Pakistan’s Punjab province and it’s wealthiest and the most industrialized region. The Sufi dargahs, the Sikh shrines, and the Mughal era buildings, mosques and gardens of Lahore attract thousands of visitors annually and make it one of the most visited cities in Pakistan.
Where you decide to stay in Lahore depends mostly on your purpose of visit. Lahore is a big city, with a lot of traffic. Walking may be difficult, especially when the heat becomes unbearable.
The city has just launched a metro system, but only one line currently operational. This line, called the Orange line, runs from Wagha town in the east to the Allama Iqbal zone in the south-west side of the city.
Lahore has more than 150 hotels that cater to all kinds of people: from back-packing students, migrant workers, businessmen, those awaiting medical treatment, to honeymooners and foreign travellers. While most of the hotels in Lahore fall in the low-budget to mid-range category, Lahore has a small number of hotels that are truly upscale and full service.
But this is soon going to change as Pakistan gets better at handling security and attracts more tourists from abroad, especially those from the Middle-East, South East Asia and China. International luxury brands like Marriott and Hyatt already have plans in place further establish their name in Lahore, as soon as the world economy recovers from the effects of Covid19.
Why should you consider a luxury/upscale hotel when visiting Lahore?
Luxury hotels in Lahore set themselves apart by first and foremost providing excellent security. Most of these properties are bounded by high compound walls, barbed-wire and armed personnel. These hotels are frequented by Pakistan’s elite, the moneyed, the politicians and therefore have suitable amenities such as a swimming pool, gym, spa and fine-dining restaurants on site.
Foreign tourists may find that their options to book a hotel room in Pakistan limited. Many budget hotels will simply refuse to take non-Pakistani guests for security reasons. Therefore foreign visitors are justly advised to check into high-end hotels in the city for the sake of their own safety.
Lahore’s luxury hotels are mainly clustered in high-density, commercial areas around Mall Road and Gulberg. There are also many other hotels to be found in the other areas of the city and the cantonment area, but these will be discussed in another post.

How has the covid-19 pandemic affected the hotel experience
The effects of the Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID‑19) pandemic has upset the travel industry like never before. The Hospitality and Tourism sector in particular is continually refining the steps it is taking to limit the spread of the disease, and keep everyone safe.
With the exception of the private guest-rooms, most hotels will require wearing face-masks in all indoor common-spaces. Shared amenities such as the fitness-rooms, swimming-pools and laundry rooms may be temporarily closed for an unspecified period of time.
Where hotels usually serve a complimentary buffet breakfast, you will find pre-packaged grab-and go meals instead. While patrons have voiced their disappointment, it is perhaps done in the best interest for everyone.
Every hotel has pledged to continuously sanitize frequently touched areas such as doors, elevator buttons and table-tops. Some hotels have placed restrictions on temporary visitors to the hotel and to those who do not have a reservation.
We at ManiaRavings.com, humbly remind our readers to check for travel restrictions and follow mandated protocols to keep safe and limit the spread of this devastating disease
