“Quite a good hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2013

We were a large group and had 5 deluxe and 1 suite rooms. The location of the hotel is superb and is in the market. It's right next to Hotel Pahalgam and most shops and places to eat are easily walkable. It faces the river and has a lovely view with a garden. The food is very average though the staff is superb.
The location was a big deal to us since the other hotels in Pahalgam don't have anything within walking distance. In addition, only Pahalgam tourist body approved cabs can take you sightseeing.

The deluxe rooms are very good and the 4th floor ones have renovated bathrooms which are better than the 2nd floor. The suite was only a 1000 more and was amazing. It has incredible views with a lot of space. They have very few suites so take that into account.

The hotel staff is excellent. The hotel itself is a little dated and they need to renovate it in order to charge a higher premium. It has a pool table, billiards table, table tennis and carrom facilities which we used.

Other: The Bhaisharan meadow is incredibly gorgeous! Trout Beat and Cafe Log Inn are good though the trout at Senator Pine and Peak (a great hotel) was better and cheaper! Dana Pani is the go to place for veg food.

Room Tip: Choose rooms on the 4th floor (4xx etc.) The suite rooms are fantastic!

We stayed from 1st October to 3rd October, Room No is 110.Good view View is good. Make sure to do good bargaining before check in. Take only room, MAP was no-no. Non veg was very bad. We told the same to the hotel manager too. It was not cooked properly. Recommend don't take food option while staying in this hotel.
Be ready for lots of change, once check out.. Lot of people will come to you but they won't come whn you dial the room service no.

Room Tip: Take back side room. If pocket allows suite or else take room near to suite. We took room no 110, ne...

I was having no reservation and reception was very helpful to provide me accommodation at reasonable rate. All around are smiling faces. Location is excellent and lucky to have wonderful sunset photos from hotel garden. Out side the hotel pure vegetarian restaurant is DANA PANI. Good food. Will visit once more in winter at this hotel.

The views from the hotel are excellent, you can also get photo shoot done in traditional Kashmiri attire in the hotel premises. Hotel is located in the market area and is convenient for shopping, hiring taxi etc..
The service from the staff are very ordinary and the food was below average.

The food was below average, may be as it was complimentary.
The charges for tea / mineral water are very high (basically anything on the menu is not value for money)

Everyone expects tips in Kashmir, from stewards, waiters, taxi drivers, pony owners etc. seems like they have become habitual.

Pahalgam was last stop on our week long Kashmir Trip. We enjoyed the whole of Kashmir but in my opinion this (Pahalgam) is the place which is truly worthy of Great Mughal Emperor Jahangir's historic words "Gar firdaus, ruhe zamin ast, hamin asto, hamin asto, hamin ast" meaning "If there is ever a heaven on earth, its here, its here, its here", such is the scenic beauty of this place. And Mountview is a hotel which gives you the best chance to enjoy this scenic beauty.

We selected this hotel after going through many reviews and understanding that Pahalgam (infact whole of Kashmir!) has very few good hotels to offer. The property is located right in the center of Pahalgam Main Market towards the River Lidder and that is perhaps its USP. The hotel offers one of the best views of the Valley from its lawns and from its room's glass windows. I must admit that having traveled to almost all the hill stations in Northern India, none can beat this scenic beauty, trust me.

Coming to the hotel's infrastructure, the rooms are spacious but a bit old. Their main Staircase is rickety and carpets are a bit worn out. In fact, as suggested by other travelers too, entire hotel needs renovation. However, Lawns and the reception area are well maintained. Another small issue is that a lot of ponies start from a place very near to the hotel, so you might get unpleasant dung smell during or after Amarnath Yatra period, as place gets full with ponies. But don't read too much into this criticism, it is still a decent place to spend time.

Didn't try food so can't say much about that but it is on a slightly costlier side. One can have delicious food at Dana Pani Restaurant (Pure Indian Veg) or Trout Beat (Serves Veg, Chinese and Fish) which are few steps away from the hotel.

Staff is courteous but like most of the hotels in Kashmir region don't expect a very professional approach from them.

Hotel also has facility for indoor games such as Billiards, Pool, Carrom, Chess, etc but their views from rooms and three lawns at different elevations won't allow you to think of anything else!!!

In all, select this hotel if you truly, completely, hundred percently want to enjoy Pahalgam without having too much expectations on the room.

Room Tip: Choose room on top floor towards the River for best views.

I booked through Agoda for one night and found the experience comfortable. I was allowed early check in and staff was friendly and trained. Also room service was quite fast.

Although there were not huge variety in breakfast and dinner, but the quality and taste were quite good.

Just an advise to the Management - Please don't let the staff sit on the floor in the galleries and also near the guest rooms, as it feels a bit awkward and makes the hotel environment un-professional.

Room Tip: I think all the rooms have a Mountain View.

stayed here in Sept end 2013. The hotel is nicely located - bang next to the market ; yet is peaceful and has great view. Rooms are nicely done, neat and amazing view (stayed on first floor). Interior are preety nice, bed comfortable, and toilets are reasonably clean. Staff not the not great- food is hopeless. However, since it is bang in the middle of the market- lots of food option as close as 50Mts.
Worth every penny in off season (managed to get great discount )
Taxi stand is closeby (100Mtrs), if one is planning to stay here for more than 2 days then no need to retain a cab that one gets from srinagar.

Room Tip: I found first floor to be better -
