Photographs previously shared on social media showed a broken window five storeys up on the hotel.

It is believed the man, who is in his 30s, fell on to a second-floor ledge.

The hotel’s general manager Umar Khattak, 38, said the man and woman involved in the incident checked in on Saturday.

He said the hotel had received calls from different guests about noise coming from a room.

Mr Khattak said police were called and officers moved all guests out of the fifth floor.
