Ramada Plaza Karachi Airport Hotel
Ranked #6 of 24 Hotels in Karachi
Reviewed May 21, 2011

If you have to be in Karachi and can avoid the drive downtown, the Ramada Plaza at the airport is a comfortable and quiet haven from the surrounding chaos. Although the outside of the property is unimpressive, the inside has been transformed into a modern and fairly reliable business hotel. The rooms are spacious and clean, and the housekeeping staff is attentive and helpful. The hotel restaurant offers a varied menu that includes a large buffet and an a la carte menu with Pakistani and Western cuisine. The restaurant personnel were friendly, helpful, and always available to respond to any request.

There remain a variety of infrastructure issues, some of which should have been addressed and others that any hotelier in Karachi would find difficult to overcome. Water from the bathroom faucet is not potable and bottled water is recommended, even for brushing teeth. Electrical outlets were worn, which caused them to occasionally arc or stop working completely. Internet service was quite slow and unreliable, but also inexcusably expensive. My trip to the spa provided one of the worst massages ever experienced and was much too expensive.

Notwithstanding the negatives mentioned above, the convenience and relative safety of lodging in the secure zone around the airport and the amenities of the Ramada make it a good choice in Karachi.

Stayed here on business because of office budget cuts. Not bad for value but don't expect great food. The internet is expensive so unless ur an expat who couldn't care less, be prepared to pay upwards of 30 dollars for 24 hours of net.
Rooms downgraded because of no in room tea and coffee service...no excuses for not having these as standard in pakistan.
The hotel is far away from the city so its quite a nuisance if u have ad hoc meetings in the city center. Its great if ur not going to the city and departing after meetings at the hotel but for the most part the commute is hell.
Very bad room service menu but decent rooms.

Ramada hotel is a good place to stay if you want to be near the airport.
It take at least half an hour taxi ride (or even more) to the business district.
Was there in DEC 09 for 2 weeks and after the first problem at the reception (seemed there was only a booking and not a full payment voucher), my stay was pretty good.
Of course there are different hotels in Karachi (see my review on Avari Towers) but Ramada is a good compromise.

Ramada Karachi is an awful hotel. I had a confirmed booking for the hotel but when i got there at 530am after a long, nearly 10 hours journey, I was told that the booking had already been canceled. The receptionist was rather rude and unprofessional. I shall never stay in this hotel or recommend any person to do the same. Prof Muhammad Rafique Anjum, Multan. Pakistan.

We used the hotel waiting for a domestic flight. The hotel had a rep waiting outside of security for us at 2:30 AM. Hotel is secure, rooms are clean with a friendly staff. It was a welcome relief after a long international flight.

Security at a high level,more razor wire than stalag luft 7. Very easy check in with a drink offered imediately. A pleasant room,comfortable bed and good shower but unworkable bath tap. Restaurant with a seriously good buffet at 800R (bargain) If the management read this, please please remove the electronic keyboard player from the entrance of the restaurant to the far reaches of the car park and preferably facing in the other direction. Its a good solution the guy keeps his job and the guests retain their sanity.
courtesy bus to airport any time. 4 mins.
