The Hotel is located on the bank of Dal Lake.Ofcourse you have to walk a few kms inside as its unavoidable due to its location.Yet we njoyed walking through the street with few shops and could see few shikaras parked on the Dal Lake.The entrance is beautiful with different "Roses" as you walk along towards your room and a green...

Much against my wish my husband booked this hotel going by Tripadvisor reviews. The reviews were very misleading. Except for the flowers there was nothing appealing about the hotel. We were charged more than Rs.4000 per night which we discovered was way above their standard of service and hospitality. The dining room was dark and dingy, the breakfast quality terrible.... More

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
