Osama Bin Laden Compound Earns Mediocre Reviews on Google Maps

by at . Comments

If you were thinking about venturing over to stay at Osama bin Laden's compound in Pakistan, you might want to heed some warnings from fellow travelers.

While Osama's hideout in Bilal Town, Abbottabad, Pakistan, has the look of a quaint, countryside B&B, never make travel plans based on photos alone.

An average of the 1,284 reviews on Google Maps rates it 3 out of 5 stars. Could be worse, but might not be worth it, given the airfare and other factors.

Osama Bin Laden Compound

Excerpted recent reviews offer feedback such as:

  • Lousy room service; ordered fresh Maine lobster but instead got seals from Afghanistan. Fail. - Tozefs
  • Great spot to get away from the hustle & bustle - no cable or internet! - Keith
  • This is _THE_ place to pick up hotties if you are out to party in Abbottabad. The drinks are stiff, and the DJs spin it hot all night. - K-to-the-V
  • So not worth the 200 Million rupees! Do not waste your money. - TS
  • When I set up the reservation, they promised me peace and quiet. I get there and there are reporters swarming all over the place, along with about a thousand cops. I just kept driving. - Ed
  • This delightful, modestly fortified B&B on the outskirts of Abbottabad features a convenient helicopter landing area - easy access for on-the-go tourists. High walls for squash/racquetball practice and reduced shrapnel damage. - Allen

Other drawbacks include lack of central A/C, tapped phones and the chance that a team of elite Navy Seals will infiltrate the premises and assassinate you.


There is absolutely,positively,No way that OBL was living in such a fortress right within a bird"s eye view of the military, and they
had absolutely No clue that this was a home of a family with Normal ties to the community.Any officers with half of a dangerous brain could see that this eyesore with high thickened layered walls and barbed wired security that stood out among the other residences in that area could Not ignore the fact that this was a private residence with a abnormal ties to the community. That country's military knew all along where OBL was, and I strongly believe
that the time is ripe to for our country to discontinue any financial aid to that country!!


it is good


200 million rupees is a bit steep
