Location of the hotel takes all the points, as market is a walking distance ( rikshaw with kids & adults, depends on tiredness level). Price : rooms are normally priced, you can ask for extra mattress at extra cost. Cleanliness : the hotel is... More

Located at a very good point and having descent size Rooms and WCs but poorly maintained as I normally find in the State Tourism Dev Corporation properties. At the price charged, the hotel could easily... More

If you are looking to stay at a reasonably priced Hotel, with spacious & clean Rooms, then go for it. The Restaurant food is very good, but service is a bit slow at times. The location is very near to Banganga, 15mins walk. If you compare this to all the Hotels in its vicinity, then you will definitely love this... More

The main market is nearby so does not make a difference. Taxi and other tourist sight seeing booking service is available just infront of this hotel , so no need to pre... More

Stayed in JKTDC Hotel Saraswathi for 2 nights during pilgrimage to Vaishnodevi. Good hotel. Booked on line. Courteous staff. Restaurant attached. Food is not very good, but yes manageable as there are other good restaurants like Sagar Ratna (about 1/2 km away).

I did my booking in Vaishno Devi's shire board Niharika complex. Cheap stay. The rooms are clean and big. Advantage of staying here is you get the parchi (Pass) very easily. Secondly, the helicopter tickets are also available from here.

For basic accommodation, it is probably the best place... dont think much, just book it and you will not be disappointed. The rooms are really big with all basic utilities in good condition. Location: it is halfway between banganga and market. (0.8 km from bus stand/market) Meals: i didnt try any
