“good place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 10, 2011

i stayed in this hotel for 2 nights in the royal suite room, the room was big and had all the regular facilities except for a ceiling fan. They provide a standing fan and given that it rained when i was there and it got pretty cold i didn't miss the ceiling fan. i didn't really use the room service so cannot comment on that but the other staff were pretty courteous and the buffet b'fast and dinner was pretty good. Its located a bit towards the interior of the city on a busy street but i had a taxi with me so didn't really feel anything against the location.

It is situated on the third and fourth floor of a shooping complex, in a very busy market.
Rooms are good and modern, thats the only saving grace as it is newly built. There were no ceiling fans in the room. They provide pedestral fans, but they are not sufficient. The service is pathetic. Dont opt for any meals in the hotel. Room Service is Expensive.
Book only if other alternatives are not available.
Free WIFI is available.

i stayed in april 2011 after reading the reveiws on net. and was surprised why people liked this place
all pics are not real. hotel bulding pic is not real
building have 3 floors of shop and 2 floors of hotel. you feel like living in shopping mall
This hotel is like a classy lodge nothing else.
they dont have any facalities and ofocurse they will give you alternate ,( like bucket of water ) the same alternate what you get as facalties in small lodge. so why to pay 5000/- rs for this hotel?

No central heating/ no warm water ( its only till 11 in morning) / hard spring bed/ half the time thr phone lines dont work. ( i have to go down and call the guy 5 times a day)/ no wifi

location is also not so great , ultimately you have to go boulverd road for everything , so why not stay thr

food is over priced with 22 % tax. one glass of milk will cost you 90 rs

its not at all worth the money they ask . its not the place to stay for vacation . you will feel like cramped in your room with shops down . no view from any room and nothing to visit near hotel

and believe me , the reception guy calls us at 12 in night asking to check if any tap is open in bathroom. actually he was calling all guest in rooms as they have shortage of water

waiters and service guys are very good if you tip them properly

Good location, Residency Road or Lal Chowk as its popularly known. Less than 2kms from the scenic Dal Lake, & very accessible from the Srinagar Airport. (About 12kms from the airport & 400INR for a pre-paid taxi).

The hotel is actually part of a small mall, occupying the 3rd & 4th floors with small shops & bank branches occupying the lower floors. The rooms were pretty small & dimly lit, furnishing decent. The rooms come with a portable heater, which takes a lot of time to heat up the room. Hot water was available only on request. (I was pretty irked by this)

The guest service provided by the hotel was excellent, the support staff of the hotel is great.

The complimentary breakfast provided in your rooms is simple but outstanding.

Located in the heart of Srinagar, near Lal Chowk, the hotel rooms are spacious and well maintained. The lower 2 stories contain a mall, while the upper 3 stories constitute the hotel. The food is reasonably good, but service very slow and poor. Parking is a major problem during peak hours.
