The car/cab leaves you at least 500 mtrs away on the road. The porters carry your luggage to the hotel. Strictly not suitable for oldies at all. No lifts. And in... More

Our hotel is located on the brim of Dal Lake, because of the geographical terrain and because it’s nearest of lake it is very... More

All over the world the hotels advertise about Home Away From Home but in Hotel Akbar it was true cos this hotel is family run and every one of them makes you feel at home. From the youngest generation like Harshid, Dawood and Mr.Zaffer and his brother Mr.Farooq... More

Helping me with my luggage, we then drove to Dalgate 1 and proceeded along a peaceful ramp, flanked by colorful Shakira floating in Dal Lake. After entering the gate, under a canopy of blooming roses, we were met in the hotel... More
