Located in the lovely Gulberg area, the hotel is in a nice quiet location. Great service, immaculate rooms, helpful staff who can arrange tailored tours upon request. Was also provided with complimentary airport transfers.

The Residency Hotel is an unexpected gem in the residential sector of Lahore - but close to a main road that connects with the shopping and business districts. The staff is welcoming and the environment of the hotel is soothing. The room decor and appointments are tasteful and sophisticated - more European than Pakistani - but wonderful nonetheless.

The hotel boasts both an indoor and outdoor swimming pool - an unexpected perk in a small hotel in Lahore.

I been staying in Residency for more than 8 months over the past 3 years. I’ve see the hotel changing and becoming a superb boutique hotel with SPA (ask for the Thai massage from Crystal), a luxury infinity pool and one of the best gym I’ve ever been in. After a long day of work, it is the perfect place to relax either with a massage or at the poll or working out…or all of them!

5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 16, 2008

We recently returned from a short stay at the Residency.
The hotel was recommended to me by a friend and since it was reasonably priced I decided to go for it.
Our 3 day stay there was excellent.

The hotel is in a beautiful part of town on a quiet street. The security is excellent. The staff is very knowledgeable, courteous and helpful. They can arrange car rentals and offer good sight seeing tips. The hotel also offers complimentary high speed internet access.
The food at the hotel is excellent (try the chicken burgers!). There is also a small coffee/tea shop which serves great little sandwiches and desserts.
The atmosphere is quaint, relaxed (similar to a B&B).
The rooms were spacious and clean and nicely furnished.
The hotel also offers complimentary pick-up and drop-off from the airport.
I would highly recommend the Residency (over the bigger hotels) for anyone visiting Lahore.

  • Liked — Clean, spacious, nicely furnished.
  • Disliked — No hairdryer
