“Truly a Grand Palace..”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 1, 2012

We had a wonderful stay at this place, the gardens are huge and very well maintained, the rooms are large and the staff is quite warm and attentive. Kids enjoyed but young kids below 5 need some kind of indoor play area as you can't step out when its too cold..also kids channels on tv need to be added.

Food was good and service too...
Overall it was a great stay..

Room Tip: Choose a room near the lobby if you don't want a long walk..as there are quarter mile long corri...

We were two of us, stayed for 3 nights from 25th to 28th November 2012. The hotel is nice & very well maintained since my last stay with them in March 2007.

Stayed on the first floor room with a nice garden & Dal lake view. The breakfast is very average, but the way the staff takes care of your needs at The Chinar makes up for it. The staff very well trained & attentive, they make sure that you get everything fresh & in time.

The buffet was good, but because of off season it was not available on all nights, which goes in a bad taste for a 5 star property like Lalit, even though it was not too reasonably priced for in house guest (Rs.1850 per person).

The sanitation department is too poor as we had leakage problem with our hand shower for all three days, even after they changed the equipment!

Overall it was a great experience staying at The Lalit, i would recommend this hotel for all age groups.

Room Tip: Rooms on the first floor have nice view, but the ones on ground floor have open sit out. I have stay...

Apart from the corridors being a few miles long (I had a room right at the end of one) it was a fantastic experience. Lovely room, had a personal little sit-out and the lawns just make the view. However, it's even better when you head to the other side (hopefully not forgetting anything in your room, 'cos it's a long walk back) to the restaurant on the lawns. The views are spectacular and you could spend an entire morning there without any problem.

Room Tip: Ground floor, by the lawn, preferably one closer to the reception.

Had a wonderful stay. Suite was large, clean and comfortable except for the constant running water noise from the pipes overhead. Since I am a light sleeper, this bothered me on all 4 nights. Service and food was good.

Five of us ,stayed at this gorgeous place him up the hill with its meandering road access,we were not disappointed .The hotel is 5 star and as is the food and service.Be [prepared to walk across a large garden like courtyard to get to your room,its the layout.The views of the city and Daal lake are to die for ,,youwill be spared the dust and traffic noises from below and can visit these at your leisure.
Srinagar need more of such accommodations to attract truism

Room Tip: try for ones nearest to he main building to prevent long walks

We stayed at Lalit during our 3 day trip to Srinagar. This was my 5th trip to this hill station and I have never had a bad experience till this time. We stayed for 3 days it took us almost 2 hours to finish check in formalities. The day we checked out, we forgot our iPhone in the hotel in the horse buggy, on realizing the same we immediately called the hotel and even went back to the hotel, but to my great disappointment the staff was not at all helpful. I called up regularly to check for our phone, no one even returned our call even once! They kept denying that the phone is there. We even showed them photos that when we sat in the buggy the phone was there and immediately after that it wasn't! It is extremely sad to see such bad level of service in a property like this! I sincerely hope they improve their service and quality of staff.

Surely, it is one of the best properties located at such an accessible place in srinagar where one can easily have a glimpse of beautiful srinagar. one can witness dal lake with beautiful floating shikaras on one side and the ASTONISHING SHANKARACHARYA TEMPLE on the other side. mouth watering non veg delicacies as well as kashmiri cuisine. Just loved every bit of it. relishing the food even after so many months. Thank you RPC for bringing such joyful, amazing and fun filled times in our life. LUXURY AT SUCH A PRICE ONLY BECAUSE OF RPC. GOOD GOING! LOVE U RPC!

Room Tip: Always go for big spacious rooms.
