But this worry seems to be outdated as Mr Shiraz from Hashoo Group says Ships are a good way to end Karachi hotel woes. He believe that Karachi needs more budget hotels instead of luxurious hotels such as Hotel One to address the shortage and price wars between lower-end hotels in the city.
He says Hotel One by Hashoo Group is offering Franchises opportunity that is a good way for 3 star hotel owners to learn from experiences of Hashoo Group that is providing hospitality to Domestic and International tourists since decades and owning Pakistan's top 5 star hotels including Marriott and Pearl Continental in Karachi, Lahore, Islamabad, Peshawar, Gwadar, Bhurban, Muzzaffarabad and Dubai.
Shiraz added that Cruise Ships can be docked close to Port Grand and can offer amusement facilities such as aqua pools in addition to Hotel Rooms to Karachi families closed to the city as majority of water parks and clubs are located at outskirts of main city.
"Cruise ships is a good way to address Karachi Hotel Rooms shortage" and "makes sense" he added.
