Durante il mio viaggio in Pakistan e la Hunza Valley ho avuto il piacere di soggiornare presso il Gulmit Continental Hotel. Il sig. Zahir Shah e la sua famiglia sono stati molto ospitali e disponibili. Qualsiasi necessità o informazione avessi bisogno per il mio viaggio nella Hunza Valley mi sono stati dati con grande professionalità e conoscenza.
Sono stato molto colpito dalla loro passione nel voler trasmettere ai viaggiatori le conoscenze, la cultura e le tradizioni della zona. Senza dubbio il posto migliore dove stare e la gente giusta su cui fare affidamento in Gulmit e Hunza. Le camere sono curate e pulite e c’è un piacevole giardino dove rilassarsi. Un posto dove tornare volentieri.

I had the pleasure of staying in the Gulmit Continental Hotel during my trip to Pakistan and Hunza.
Mr. Zahir Shah and his family were very freindly and helpful. Any need or information I needed to better appreciate Hunza was given to me with great professionality. Their passion to share their knowledge, culture and traditions of Hunza valley with the travellers was really touching.  Definetively the place to stay and the people to trust in Gulmit and Hunza. Neither to say, tidy hotel, clean rooms and nice relaxing garden. 
The place I will certainly return.

“Makes you want to come back”

For my first Pakistan trip, I needed a personal consultation with the ambassador to get my visa. He said: "You will love Pakistan and you will want to come back." Well, I did love it and I did come back. And one of the main reasons why I loved it and why I came back was this place, and especially its owner, Zahir.

The hotel is clean and tidy and well-maintained, and it offers spectacular views. The owner is a super friendly, polite, knowledgeable and helpful person, who accompanied me on a day trip over a glacier and showed and explained dozens of interesting things and places to me.

When I came back with some friends recently, a few years after the first visit, he organised a week-long hiking trip for us with great guides and carriers and everything.

Honestly, if you travel along the KKH, be it on the way from or through China, or just for fun within Pakistan, make this place a stopover on your route. It's worth it!

Extremely friendly hotel”

The choices of hotels in Gulmit is not big and Gulmit Continetal hotel is definitely the place to stay in, when you are there. The rooms are clean and the prices reasonable considering of what competition offers for the same prices, especially concerning the food. The location is perfect and the guy who was working there Zahir Shah is really really friendly. He took his time to let us know about Gulmit and surrounding places and even took as around. He also runs a travel agency and I would recommend him for trekking and tours in an instance, because he has extremely reasonable prices and a lot of knowledge about Pakistan and mountains.

Gulmit is a great place, friendly and relaxed and set amongst stunning scenery, with lots of nice day walks in the vicinity. The Continental is excellent - very friendly and helpful staff, clean rooms and a nice garden. Highly recommended.

“If you are going through Upper Hunza, Stay Here”

First, if you haven't considered going to Gulmit yet, you should. It is one of the most beautiful places I have ever been. The mountains, glaciers, Attabad lake, the terraced hillsides. It is like something from another world, magical almost. Zahir recommended that we visit, and I don't regret it for a second.

Second, when you are in Gulmit, you must stay here. The building is rather new, in good condition, the rooms are nice, the view is incredible, there is a nice central garden, there are candles in the rooms! Zahir, the owner/manager, is also just cool, super easy going, and dedicated to making you have the best experience that you can have there. He prepared some delicious traditional foods for us that you couldn't even find elsewhere. He also set us up with a great guide to explore the area, and went on some of the treks with us. He is very passionate about his hometown, and loves sharing it with the world. Prices are fair, and for that matter, Zahir is a very fair person in general. I highly recommend the Gulmit Continental Hotel.

“Summer holidays in a breathtaking landscape”

We spend family holidays in summer 2014 at Gulmit Continental Hotel. The view towards the Cathedrals mountains at sunset is breathtaking and the climate in summer was just perfect to get some rest. Zahir as the hotel manager is a great person and never lacks of ideas of what to do. He understands very well, what western tourist expect (e.g. regarding timeliness, organization of treks/excursion, fair prices). Food was very good (don't forget to try some local dishes if you are asked).
In a nutshell: If you have the chance to go to upper Hunza valley, don't miss this place!

“A visit that we will never forget”
5 of 5 stars

We stayed in Gulmit Continental Hotel when we travelled along the KKH in 2006 (couldn't check that box right) and the experience is still fresh in our minds and we continuously talk about going back one day. We have kept in touch with the management and especially Zahir who went out of his place to make our stay comfortable, enjoyable and exciting. As we were the only guests at our stay the food was especially cooked for us - and it was great. The room was spacious with a delicate en-suite bathroom and a super comfortable bed. They also arranged activities for us: A tour of the valley, fishing trip, glacier hiking, Karimabad and much more. We were also lucky enough to get to go to a traditional dinner at Zahirs moms house - which was a truly unforgettable experience. In addition they helped me get medical service in the village when I was sick, and they also gave me a great mountain herb tea the cure my illness.The hospitality and service we enjoyed at Gulmit Continental can not be compared to anything we have ever experienced in a hotel before. That being said: Throughout our whole trip in Pakistan we were lucky to meet warm and generous people everywhere witch all contributed to making our journey in Pakistan so unforgettable. I hope many more will travel to see this beautiful country with its abundance of generous and warm people. Thank you Zahir and the rest of the crew for having us. We are writing this review way to late, but we are so happy to see all of the great at much deserved reviews they have achieved here on trip advisors. If you want an experience of a lifetime - travel to Pakistan, visit the Northerns Areas and stay at Gulmit Continental!

“One of the better establishments on the KKH.”


I travelled here in July 2013 and it was certainly the best hotel I came across whilst travelling down the KKH. Very clean and tidy place, good meals and just a great place to relax. I managed to coincide my visit with a polo match on the field, doesn't get much better than that.
