The centaur is situated right at probably the best location possible which is the Dal Lake in Srinagar. The location is naturally blessed but the hotel service and rooms do not do justice to the location. The food there was not too great either. Only thing god about the hotel was the location, nothing else.

We stayed their for a night. It charges at the rate of 5 star but is worth a Rs1000 hotel in Delhi. Rooms are small, old with paint peeling. Structure is akin to old government building stinking of inefficiency & rot. Service is poor. Proximity to lake is only plus. It is better to stay at houseboat or any other... More

If you want to open your windows in the morning and get wowed by the view - this is the hotel in Srinagar. No hotel, repeat no hotel in Srinagar has this kind of location. Right at Dal lake, huge gardens, good staff. Sadly same can't be said about the rooms. Rooms are clean but old and badly require renovation.... More

Hotel is a 30 min drive from the airport, but is located away from the crowded city center, but close to most attractions. The place is very clean and the service is good. It is very affordable compared to the 5-stars nearby, so offers great value for money. The rooms are dated, but comfortable and well maintained.

We recently organized Annual General Meet 2014 of Travel Agents Association of Kashmir (TAAK) at Centaur Hotel. The meet was a success and many other Associations took a cue to organize their meets and conference in the same hotel. We had about 70-80 members who attended the programme. The arrangements were meticulously done. Seating was quite impressive and the food... More

This is the hotel to stay if you are looking for big rooms, amazing views and low tariffs (as per Srinagar Standards). Overall the property was in decline but they were working on renovation. The property was huge and ill maintained. The rooms were good size, dated but maintained. The heating was there. The administration was indifferent. There was only... More

The location is superb and it has huge property. If it is maintained well, the hotel can be one of the best place to stay in Srinagar. But the management is not efficient and they are wasting such a fabulous property. More cleanliness is required. Professional attitude should be there.

I have stayed here on two occasions while visiting Srinagar for work. It's a government owned property and the only good thing about Centaur is it's location. Located just on the famous Dal lake, you get a majestic view of the mountain range and the beautiful dal lake from the lawns. However on the flip side, the rooms are ill... More
