Stayed here in the first week of this month for three nights.Its a great property in terms of location(first floor rooms in new wing offer beautiful views of the lake & the boulevard road beyond) & architecture but poor management/maintainence. Prices are negotiable (you can get a double room for Rs.2500 per night breakfast).Don't let any touts accompany you(boatmen or... More

Extremely wierd location. Right On Dal Lake yet with no view from anyroom. Right on boulevard road yet you need to walk 1/2 a km to be on it. 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

We stayed in Hotel Akbar from 27th May to 2nd June '15. 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
