Excellent service in Dar-es-Salam... stayed here for two nights, and had a very pleasant experience. Special mention goes out to the staff. Dar-Es-Salam, isn't right in the centre and slightly distant from the main market and Dal lake, which is a slight relief as appreciated the peace and quiet. The hotel premises and the rooms aren't particularly large, but what... More

The garden is beautiful, Nigeen lake is just in front of us. Food there was excellent, we also took Shikara short ride from hotel and overall we had a... More

I stayed at Dar-Es-Salam in July 2014 with family. The hotel is a heritage property with a lovely garden overlooking the Nigeen lake. All the rooms are of the same size so no large family suites. You can ask for an extra mattress if you have a large family. The hotel has a "homely feel" to it and the food... More

One of the best hotels I've stayed in Srinagar. Located on the banks of Nigeen it has an amazing view of the lake from more than half of the rooms. Shikara ride is just 5 minutes from the hotel. The city center is quite far, although you have easy access to rickshaws. Rooms are big and nice. There's a library.... More

Great Location, Good homemade food, beautiful view and good service but basic amenities like a good showerhead and soap holder is missing... Garden is very serene and well maintained with beautiful birds chirping. Shikara can be called right at hotel for a sunset ride.

I stayed at Dar-es-salam in September 2013 with 15 friends and family. We literally turned the poor hotel into our own 'home' and the hotel staff were nothing but friendly. The hotel is 'old' but it adds to the charm and makes you feel like you're having a true Kashmiri experience. I stayed at the hotel due to my wedding... More

I had heard a lot about Dar-Es-Salaam hotel in Srinagar and it mostly lived up to the hype. The location of the hotel is really fab, I love Nigeen lake, it's peaceful and calm and this hotel has a shikara stand straight off the garden! I got into one and did a tour of the various houseboats. The lunch I... More

Nice place on Nageen Lake. It is very near to the natural beauty for which Kashmir is known for. I will certainly appreciate the cleanliness and well mannered behavior of the staff deployed there. Service is excellent and flawless. No complaints on any counts. Thanks Mr. Khurram and your team for making our vacation a memorable one. Best wishes.

Stay here for the gardens and views, they are all superb. This place is a peaceful oasis well away from Srinagar's chaotic traffic and city centre. The room's aren't bad, the bathrooms excellent but the beds are a bit like sleeping on a paving slab. Service is very good, the ambiance very Indian complete with tiger skin hearth rugs and... More
