We booked this hotel after seeing the reviews on TripAdvisor and I wasn’t disappointed. I traveled with my kids so I was worried about the food and stay but it was perfectly alright. It is just a few minutes’ walk from Dal Lake. It is very helpful if you're keen on exploring the area by foot and camera. We had... More

Very nice place, comfortable room, hot water 24/7. The owner is an amazing person! Very friendly and helpful! Don't forget to try the Kashimir tea and ask him about the carpets and trekkings: he's an expert!!

Mr. Firdous and his whole team at Blooming Dale is so hospitable. The food cooked by the cook at Blooming Dale was excellent (especially the Kashimiri Pulao). Plus, Mr. Firdous organized so well our trip around Srinagar and to Gulmarg. His tips while travelling were very useful. Viva team Blooming Dale!

Neat cozy little hotel about 5 minutes walk from Gate #2, Dal Lake. The room rates are reasonable, food is available and good; the biggest plus is Mr. Firdous, who is friendly and knowledgeable about Kashmir and it's history. Can be very helpful in planning and arranging day trips and trips beyond. Internet is available, was slow the nights I... More
