short trip info

Im planning to travel to islamabad for a week very soon (late march) and have a few questions.
Where is a good (mid-price, say under US$30-50) place to stay?
As a (white male) tourist, what should my safety concerns be?
Is there much anti-western sentiment and hostility, and if so, what is the best way to deal with it?
For some of the time i will be travelling with a british pakistani (female) friend - will this cause any issues?
Thanks for any advice.

    I have just returned from Pakistan, during my visit I stayed in different cities and in different hotels. A week at New Cape Grace Guest House in Islamabad was the best out of all. The Guest house is magnificent and I have never experienced such incredible service before. Having been there first time in the country it was really hot and busy there. I couldn’t wait to get back to the peace and quite of the guest house.

    The service was great. The staff there is very friendly and make sure anything you ask for gets done straight away. The management staff is also very helpful and humble.
    My room was excellent. Very neat and tidy, Room service and laundry service is great. Food was great as well, cooked by their professional cooks. Pick up and drop off to the airport was also arranged by the guest house upon my request. It was very close to the market so I didn’t had to travel to far if I just want to go out, even the guest house will arrange a cab for you to go anywhere you want to go. Staff is also happy to help and give any information you want for travel and places of interest. Nice garden area in the guest house to relax out side, not noisy at all, nice and calm environment.
    The guest house is run by father and son, both very wonderful person and ready to help anytime.

    All in all I would say the out of all the places I stayed in Pakistan, New Cape Grace Guest House was the best place to stay. I enjoyed my stay there at a lot. Good value for money with great services provided.
