Was a pleasant surprise to come to know of Serena hotel in Islamabad, I like the Serena group of hotels and I have been in several of them in several countries. As all the Serena, the hotel is cured in all the details also the smallest ones for guests best comfort, food always international with a pleasant indigenous touch, a great pool and gym, professional staff and excellent security, I didn’t expected such a class. Very good.

Decent hotel but souless.
Not much options in Islamabad so I stay there due to lack of other good options.
Clean and gleaming marble everywhere. Expensive.

This is the third time I've stayed there and it's excellent. Rooms are great, facilities are very good, food is good. Everything is good. Security is second to none.

Only issue was that they gave me the wrong room at checkin but that was quickly fixed.

I'd stay here again.

The Islamabad Serena Hotel stands at the foot of the Margalla Hills, on fourteen acres of land, with beautiful gardens and serene water shore of the Rawal Lake in close proximity, next to the Diplomatic Enclave. The architecture and interiors of this fabulous Hotel building is a mere reflection of typical Pakistani cultural heritage depicting the skills and craftsmanship of native artisans. In this state-of-the-art building, local traditions are elegantly combined with latest technologies in order to provide a comfortable stay to our prestigious guests.a wide variety of cuisines along with the rooftop swimming pool give spectacular views of the meticulously landscaped gardens surrounding the Hotel building.

Stayed here 2 nights on a business trip.
The security measures are very high, so no concern for foreigners.
The hotel itself is very good, the rooms are well furnished , the service is great.
In Europe we would pay double or triple the price for this level of service.
The breakfast buffet is rich and free wifi is available throughout the hotel with an aceptable download speed.

Working in Islamabad is not the most comfartable place in these days. The Serena is the best place to stay, if you wanna have a clean, save, not crowded place to sleep and stay. While in the City the normal life of the pakistani capital goes on, you will feel behind this all securety checkpoints and gates somehow jailed in a very positive way.

Room Tip: Try to get a room in the old wing, otherwise you will run miles to get to the lobby
