I along with my wife stayed in Blooming Dale from July 19-21, 2013, the day of visit, curfew took place in the city. But the owner Mr Firdaus was personally present at the airport to pick us up with a curfew pass.(otherwise we would have been stuck at the airport as no taxi's were available) On arrival apart from hot Kahwa we were served with excellent lunch. (As all shops were closed, he still managed non veg for me) .The best part of our stay was his honest advisory and further travel plans for other parts of Kashmir. He touched our lives with taking us for joy ride in his car to various old city places . His intellectual knowledge of various subjects and Gazals (he sang few for us) makes one's trip memorable.His food and other hospitality items are affordable. Do not forget to buy Souvenirs (he has his own showroom) and original saffron from him as outsiders may cheat you. At least honesty and old hospitality is still alive in Kashmir.
