Kabul is not a preferred place to travel by many people. During my first visit to Kabul, I had the same feeling. As soon as you come out from the airport you see and feel the tightened security. Armed forces manning many different places. Many buildings are protected with huge concrete blocks and barbed wires. Once you've reached to the hotel you will feel safe and secured. Kabul Serena is situated in the Green Zone of Kabul which is regarded as the most protected area in which NATO building, US Embassy, President House, etc are situated. You will be taken inside after a thorough security check. Once you entered to the hotel you will feel things are very calm and safe. The rooms are average in size and interior decors are influenced with Afghani traditions. Comfortable as any star hotel, it has all the facilities including a small gym, pool, etc. The garden is something nice compared with general Afghani surroundings. I found that many meetings are happening in the hotel and the staff is equipped to cater those including security aspects. The food was not bad but I found the range is less and almost the same menu repeated. Staff of the hotel was very helpful The hotel hosts couple of Embassies and Ambassadors too
