I can confirm. Since 27th november 2014, Ghion hotel has been closed by the government. A question of taxes that have never been paid or something around.

I wanted to stay there again. But it seems that it is closed definitely. I was staying at the hotel the night it was closed by the authorities and we were given just one night to stay; of course without water and electricity. I will miss that hotel.

Yes..sad..it had THE best location in BDar. .but it is closed.

Indeed the eastern half of the compound is now a road thru to the lakeshore.

I was told by locals that the rest of the compound will be used for some sort of recreational facility for local people....but it is next to Kuriftu and one can't help wondering if...
