“Great Hotel in a wonderful garden”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2013

The old Srinagar in Kashmir is maybe one of the most attractive and interesting cities you can find in Asia. In such a nice town possibly the best hotel, and maybe one of the best of India, is the Lalit Grand Palace, located in an old Palace, with an incredible garden, and full of facilities, including a good restaurant. Prices are a little bit expensive but the location and the service are top class.

It was my daughter's first experience with Kashmir and since the two of us were on our own, i wanted the best, location, property and hospitality. Not very accostomed to worrying about sensitivities of festival days or of Independence day, we had planned our trip in the most corporate fashion - slotted between two long weekends, a trip that can be accommodated with casual leaves. The Lalit Grand won us over, the moment we entered and all my anxiety of impressing my daughter were taken over by this propoerty and the staff.

Stunning view on the Himalayas, the Dal and the paradise that Kashmir is, it relived my memories and thanks a ton.

Post visit in May with family, my stories about the valley and the palace enticed my friends to plan a trip here and they did not have to force me to join as it was a treat to be back here.

Weather was comparitievely warm, but the colors of the ladscape of the palace even more attractive. Service - satisfying as usual.

This time we tried the individual villa..it was wonderful.

For some recent reviews off late..I dont understand why people choose a heritage property if they look for the modern cookie cutter match box models of hotels available on every street now a days. Get real..This Palace is a Heritage Treat - restored and maintained thoughtfully. So face it and dont compare..the best of the lot in the valley

Me, my family and friends are gonna be usuals here...Thums Up - The Grand Palace

We travelled to Srinagar with our daughter & her family. Despite guaranteed advance bookings
the check in was painfully slow.we got our room after one hour.
The rooms are excellent & the location fantastic. The breakfast is excellent with good variety
& selection. Again the counter for ordering eggs etc was very slow & not organised.
House keeping had not cleaned our room till 4 PM !!
Restaurant service was very slow & as the hotel is remotely located there is not much choice but to eat there.
Good gym for a resort. Could do a better job at front desk & restaurant. Overall experience very good as we ignored the few delays &'enjoyed our stay.

Room Tip: Choose a room on upper floor for the view.

Lovely hotel, spacious rooms..we stayed here for 3nights in December. Rooms were adequately heated but reception area was freezing.. a few heaters placed around was not enough.. New years eve party was well organised..Will definitely stay here again .but in summer.

Dear Mr. Babri S,

Namaskar !

Thank you for choosing to stay with us during the New Year's Eve and praising the Party Celebrated with our guests. I am glad that you enjoyed the arrangements for the party.

We are looking at the possibilities of heating at the reception and a suitable solution will surely be implemented. Being a heritage property, getting permissions for any kind of civil work needs a lot of approvals and is a time consuming process. We however assure you that this in on our agenda and we will soon look at some permanent remedy.

Thanking you again for the overall feedback and looking forward to welcoming you again.

Kind Regards

Would strongly recommended to anyone who doesnt want spending little extra for a time of lifetime.
