Standards of service as well as maintenance could hardly be standardised as even below average in fact a roadside motel provides better service. Total waste of time and money. If you are looking for a 4 star in rawalpindi , leave shalimar out. Never stayed at a self proclaimed four star with this pathetic standards.

The hotel is in a very decent location. The property is also well built and is being maintained ok. They really need to put in lots of efforts in their house keeping/cleaning department. The staff must be forced to improve things else it will go into a melt down. So is the case with their kitchen, no proper cooks I...

Located near mall road. The room rent does not match the services being offered. The staff is ill trained and depicts weak management. The rooms and bathrooms are filthy full of insects and a constant stink. The staff is generally rude and won't accept their mistake. The overall standard is poor.

Am not going to drag this review long. Just the basics. I would compare this hotel to a cow shed. It has four walls and a roof but its a crap place. I would also add that I think the staff are held against their will. There's no escaping for them.

The hotel was pretty less than average. Our flight to Abu Dhabi was delayed so we were sent to stay overnight at the hotel. The bed was pretty comfy, but the hotel itself was pretty old and so the buildin's maintenance was poor. There weren't much options for breakfast. The food wasn't all that tasty. The experience overall wasn't that...
