An amazing property at an amazing location. Warm hospitality. Could not ask for more. Zaffer Houseboat is also a once in a lifetime experience. Mr. Zaffer takes personal care of all his guests. The garden is also very well maintained. View from first floor rooms is good.

Overall Kashmir is very good. Hotel was comfortable. Peoples nature is helping. Mr. Zaffer bhai & his team made our stay at Srinagar very comfortable. Hospitability by the Hotel people is unexplainable. Food was very excellent. You can see lot of snow in Gulmarg in the month of Nov. Mrs. Sheela Banerjee.

Unmatched hospitality from Mr. Zafar and his team made my stay at Srinagar very comfortable. The family of Mr. Zafar and their staff strives to make their guests feel@home. The trips arranged by the hotel to Gulmarg and Sonmarg were also fabulous! The food served at the hotel...though not very flamboyant but very simple and homely.

Found this hotel in lonely planet. The owner, owner's brother, and staff were extremely accommodating and friendly. The room was clean and comfortable. Nothing like a Marriott. But, clean, simple furnishings, TV and hot water. The daily price included breakfast. For me, I liked the location along the lake and proximity to town. The owner's brother spent the day taking...
