Originally built in 1945, the hotel has been completely refurbished and extended via the addition of an entire new wing. Reflecting the pure grace of classic Islamic architecture, the reincarnated hotel retains many of the key elements of the original, but has also been intuitively restyled, so as to reflect the many historical influences that have been brought to bear on this 3,000 year-old city.
Offering 177 spacious rooms and suites, all of which reflect the skill and traditional heritage of the local artisans, the hotel also acts as a showcase for some fine examples of Islamic decorative and contemplative art. Offering two restaurants, a welcoming lounge and a vibrant pool deck, the hotel also offers an international conference center, a state-of-the-art business center, a gracious banqueting center, and the Maisha Health Spa, which offers a gymnasium, steam, sauna, temperature-controlled swimming pool and a wide range of holistic health and wellness services.
The hotel is situated in central Kabul, 20 minutes’ drive from Kabul International Airport.
