We visited during difficult times with COVID-19 being prevalent in Afghanistan (in June 2020). We needed a well-deserved break but never thought it would be this good. We were met by Abdullah at the little Bamyan airport and taken straight to Highland Hotel. The view is stunning, overlooks the Buddha statues that everyone gets excited about. He organised the duration of our stay perfectly and really went over and above what you would expect anywhere. Our rooms were amazingly spacious, clean, comfy and like a home away from home. The cuisine is divine and well thought through and the staff are so professional yet super kind. We went on amazing hikes and he customized to our needs, mindful of different paces and tastes. We watched the magical sunrise from the rooftop every morning. He even took us shopping and helped out in our navigating our way around. Perfect host. We were honestly depressed to leave and will DEFINITELY return to the same place and look forward to staying there again. Thank you a million times! I couldn't recommend it enough. Abdullah's personal touch (and his team) makes it ever so special.

The location is fabulous with great views of the surrounding Hindu Kush mountains. The room was comfortable and clean. My problem was that they cut the electricity at around 23.00 until the following morning so if one wants to get up early (which I had to) and have a shower and a cup of tea, you have to wake up the manager and beg for him to put the generator back on. Everyone was charming but service was very slow to practically non existent. A shame as it could be such a pleasant place to stay in.

I went there with my friends at the end of July 2017. The hotel's staff and the environment are the best I have experienced all around the world, make your experience in Bamyan much nicer. Will go back there for every trip I would have to Bamyan in the future.

This sensationally cozy hotel is located just out of the city but in a much much more scenic section of Bamyan. The hotel is located a 15 minute walk from the Buddhas along a beautiful stretch of road nestled between the mountains and potato fields. The hotel is wonderfully accommodating and even helped us set up a camping experience in Band I Amir. The rooms are nice and the beds are very very comfortable. However the real joy of this hotel is the incredibly friendly staff who go well above what you'd expect. I absolutely recommend this hotel
