"Superb Guest House, Hotel in Central Islamabad Pakistan"
I'm just back from 15 days on a journalistic trip based at New Cape Grace. It proved to be ideal: comfortable beds, great room, central location and excellent food cooked fresh whenever I wanted it. Nothing is too much trouble for Karim and Samir. You need a car at 5.30 am? It will be there. A document scanned and emailed? They have the equipment. A paracetamol for a headache? Coming right up. I have no hesitation in saying that next time I'm in Islamabad, I'll be staying there.

“3 weeks here and I never missed home!”
I spent the most part of my 3 week vacation staying here as a tourist after originally booking 1 week. First time to Pakistan and I only had a vague idea of what to see in and around Islamabad so I was really surprised and thankful that Mr. Karim and Samir had new suggestions each day for places to visit. These included forts, markets, monuments and gardens. They even arranged for a driver to take me to these sites (some quite far such as Murree and Rohtas fort) at a reasonable cost and helped me arrange my stay at Lahore on short notice. My limited knowledge of Urdu was no problem thanks to their help making phone calls for bus bookings, etc.
There was an interesting variety lodging at NCG including journalists, researchers and people working for NGOs. Naturally as a shy person I didn't intend to meet anyone but the atmosphere was so welcoming at the entrance that I met quite a few and befriended some NGO workers with CDRS who took me up to Kashmir to visit.
I stayed in 3 rooms during my visit, all were very clean and spacious. Showers and beds were comfortable. Always something good on TV too. The guest house is situated in a quiet residential area of Islamabad, not too far from the commercial Blue Area, a 5-minute taxi ride from F7 Jinnah Market and a 10-minute walk away from F6 Supermarket (my fave). Sometimes taxis have trouble finding the guest house's exact location so I used to tell them "7th Avenue, F-6/1, House #8" (even if the guest house might technically be on Justice Abdul Rasheed).
As a recent graduate looking not to spend much, I found the pricing reasonable and the value great. Good security, courteous staff with also night pickups/dropoffs available for a reasonable cost. I found NCG to be very accommodating and like a home away from home. I believe it would also make a great spot for short stays.

"Comfy and extremely helpful staff!"
Had some short biz to do in Islamabad so dropped in for a two night stay. Online registration and Email correspondence with the Manager was very well handled and efficient. Airport pickup as requested without a hitch. Room was quaint and perfectly serviceable - very clean and was just what was necessary. Lightning quick internet. Staff helped me at every turn, including getting me a SIM card for my phone & some phone credit, assisting with transport for the errands I had to run, effecient wake-up calls and coffee brought to my room. Absolutely the place to stay if you need a simply but pleasantly appointed guest room & the most attentive and professional service in Islamabad you could ask for.
