Diana Inn is a great place to stay if you want to stay out of any kind of trouble. it is located in a posh area (Wazir Akbar Khan) where you will find many embassies and foriegn missions. The rooms are clean, nicely decorated and well furnished. staff is very friendly and always at your service. you will find a great deal at $50 per night (incl. breakfast) and the food menu is also very reasonable. Rashidi, the owner is a well educated guy and speaks excellent english. it is 5 minute drive to/from shahr-e-naw. stores, indian, pakistani, turkish, chinese reataurants are very close to Diana Inn, if you want to have a change in your daily menu. internet reception/speed was weak.
great service, safe and secure area, a very good night sleep after a tiring day.
Centrally located in the safest neighborhood Wazir Akbar Khan of Kabul with UN approved security measures Diana Inn offers the most comfortable living condition. the friendly staff members are committed to work day and night to ensure guests needs are well taken care of and to provide almost homely environment to enjoy your privacy as well as a multi cultural life style. the guests have never experienced the generous and sincere service elsewhere in the city.
The services and facilities include free internet WiFi connection, laundry, twenty four hour access to the gym and cozy anciently furnished lounge, The Mogul Tent. So, you just enjoy your stay in Kabul
Also the services range from Airport pick up to drop off, what more would one need? the on-house breakfast service and twenty four hour available chefs offering variety of dishes to the guests are just an at-home feel to remember Diana Inn as THE place.
I have not stayed in this Guesthouse. I have checked out the rooms though. They are simple and clean. The brochure says that the rooms are air-conditioned, they have satellite TV, 24-hour room service, in-house laundry facility, and bathroom inside the room. The price for a single room per night ranges from AFA 3000 to AFA 5000 but if you stay longer, you will be able to get the price down.
The restaurant inside the Cedar House offers Italian, Lebanese and Afghan cuisine. It has a beautiful garden and the management is currently working on improving the amenities.
I've stayed at A4T guesthouse a couple of times for ten days. email them. They may give a discount for longer stays. It's worthwhile just to have staff that knows how to navigate around Kabul and price includes meals and internet use at least while I was there.
Local Staff. Breakfast and dinner included. Laundry. Internet Access. What I liked was being in a neighborhood. Allows for contact with the local Afghan people who are totally hospitable.

Kabul is just soo amazing that is the only word i can use for that country. I love its mountains and its people and everything
On my last trip, in April 2006, we were shooting a film for the world bank, and therefore, we were put up in their guesthouse, in the wazir akbar khan area...
Our rooms had cable tv/ satellite tv, which beamed some 500 channels from around the world, which was pretty crazy. A common dining- drawing room area, and a cook, who would cook indian, continental etc, and some great desserts.
The place seems to be the best deal for $10/night. I stayed in a guest house hotel for $7 last night but it was loud, and cold (no blankets).
There's another comperable hotel 'Hotel Jamil" which quoted us $20/night.
No hot water. Toilet and shower are down the hall.
If you want a hot shower (but not much of a nicer room, but a bit cleaner, try hotel mustafa, where a double is $50/night, and a single is either $35 or $45 depending on the size/qualitiy of furnishings.
Well, this hotel is not quite good, and also expensive. it cost 10 dollars per room per day, for a room that only worth 2 dollar in south east asia. they dont have running water, and you pay for a room with common bathroom. but believe me, it could be the cheapest hotel in kabul. if you are two, you pay 5 dollar each per night.
everyday the noisy attendants of the restaurant of the hotel woke us up with their high tone voice, "Chai!!!!". it was a nightmare.
but everything changed when we chose a room at the top floor. it was a quiet and nice and beautiful room, for the same price. and we can ask them to bring us electric fan too.
the other cheap hotel is jamil. it should be almost the same as zar negar. this two backpacker's favorite hotels are located near the spinzar hotel, which is the landmark of the capital city.
I stayed with an NGO group at their guest house with other voulenteer workers. Life wasnt as tough there as i ws prepared for. Had plenty of food, and even cable tv actually, which was rather strange for me...
A 200 room hotel, and should be finishing with the rennovations now. Its not part of the Intercontinental group of hotels, though it used to be many years ago. Its now run by the government. At an aveage room rent of $100 per night, i`d say its not your cheapest option.
Nice view from atop a hill, has a pool too, am not sure if i remember seeing water in there though. But this was on my first trip in 2002, so things may have changed...
This is the hotel for many international conferences, sometimes home to journalists, Afghan government ministers.
