It's been years since I was there, but for a very long time, the Salvation Army was the place to go in Lahore. Camping or dorm accomidation. Hot showers, use of a good kitchen and a doctor is there if you need one. Very friendy and highly recomended. Overlanders are usually there. I was there on five or six occasions over a ten year period. Also, there are hotels in Lahore that change names too fast for the gudebooks to keep up. They are famous for robbing western travellers and they work with the police so you are helpless. This has been going on for years. Even American Express knows about it, they replace so many travellers checks and hear the same stories over and over. The Lonley Planet guidebook has a section describing this problem (or it used to).

Hello Ralf and Eva

I stayed at the Regale Internet Inn in Lahore for five days in December. This no.1 hostel for westernes is up some stairs in an alley and might look a bit worn down at first, but it is alright, cheap, and have rooms for two. I parked my bike 100 meters away at a guarded cinema parking lot (the friendly hostel people will tell you where). I met two german bikers and one Irishman on a KTM who did the same, so it appeared to be a favorite spot in Lahore. No problems whatsoever.

Other recommendations:

Bloom Star Hotel in Quetta (fenced in parking and where most overlanders go)

J.J. Guest House in Loralai (just opened, and the most unforgettable service on the entire route from Norway to Kathmandu) If you go there say hello from me.

Drop me an email if you need suggestions for other places en route.

Good luck.

its a long time since I travelled in Pakistan, but one place is still in my mind.

Avoid the Hotel Muslim in Quetta.

All the Best

If you stay at the Regale Internet Inn in Lahore that Erik mentioned ask the owner about Sufi night - one of the best cultural experiences we had in Pakistan. Wild drumming, chanting and whirling mystics at a Sufi temple.

Great crowd at the Regale Internet Inn too.

Eriks 10 Feb 2006 18:36

Good point Parkie. They arrange sufi night every Thursday.
And Mika is right too - the Muslim Hotel is not a wonderful place.

Hi there,

thanx for all your help.
I just put some good places for bikers in the net.
The Muslim Hotel is realy bad!!

Bloom Star Hotel is the place to be in Quetta. THE overlander place. Great hotel, great secure parking.

I stayed at the National Hotel in Lahore. They have parking out front, there is a guard on duty 24/7. 800 rupees with airco.
