4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 9, 2014 via mobile

We had 7 rooms here on the 3.4 April. A neat n tidy place,hospitable staff,off the main road yet along the katra market road. Want to specially thank the GM n his team for catering to our taste in food. ......we had had enough of roti n spicy gravies throughout our Kashmir trip n were craving for some Chinese food in our food inclusive plan. Inspite of the inconvenience it must have Caused them, they served us good tasty spread considering that no onion n garlic is used in katra. Thank you for obliging n making our stay memorable at shree Hari niwas

Stayed April 2014, traveled with family

Professional staff and no complaints in terms of service.
Just need to work upon the food a little bit, otherwise everything was fine.
The MD of the property Mr. Anil was really helpful and arranged room for 2 extra days adding to our pre reservations on a very short notice.

The complimentary drop to Banganga was an added advantage.
Really a nice and decent hotel to stay.

I stayed in this hotel with my husband on 7th March this year. It was a pleasant stay.It is at a walking distance from Bus stand. The rooms were well-kept .The bath rooms were clean and hygienic. The staff was courteous. The food in the restaurant was delicious. They provided free pick up and drop to Ban Ganga as well Yatra slips were complimentary. We liked the property and recommend it. It is value for money.

When you book a 3 star budget hotel in India, you cannot expect much, can you?
And considering the price we paid, the hotel was decent but not very good.
We arrived here on saturday evening and were probably expecting a little more but were a little disappointed on a number of occasions. The entrance of the hotel is a little awkward, just a small passage from the road, leading to the hotel makes you wonder if you booked the right hotel or not? Anyways, that should not be a problem as its located close to some restaurants and near to the market. But you will either have to take an auto to reach there or walk a decent 500-600 meters(not very close considering the fact that you will be tired during the long walk to the shrine).
We booked a deluxe room which was supposedly upgraded to super deluxe room and we wondered what the deluxe would look like as we did not really like our room. The room was not very big but ok. The bedsheets were not very clean, the bathroom was also ok. There was a small bottle of shampoo and moisturizer and soap in the bathroom only. The towels were not clean so we used the one we brought with us. I would recommend you to bring yours.
The cable TV was not good as some channels were not clear as there was a lot of noise.

The staff of the hotel was courteous and nice, however the waiter for room service was not professional. He would just ring the room bell and would try to barge into the room. So always make sure to close the latch of the door.
The good part of the hotel is that they provide free cab service to and from Bahanganga which we really needed and are thankful to the hotel. But somebody also told me that this service is provided by every hotel in Katra, so you may check!
We did not try the food in the hotel, so cannot comment on that.
We thought that there were some better properties in Katra, apart from this and can be tried.
The overall stay was decent but not exceptional and so I am not very impressed with the hotel and also have no hard feeling either!

Room Tip: Cannot suggest any,but maybe the one that opens to the hotel parking!

The stay in the hotel was comfortable and appreciate the service. except the fact my room had problems in the wash room and despite repeated updates to the team , they did not take an effort to fix it / or offer me a change of room.
They must also provide for more rooms with 2 single beds so when you travel with friends you dont really have to share a bed!!!

Room Tip: Please check the Hot water and the water flow from the taps,

This is the second time we stayed here. Its a great property with courteous staff. Rooms are clean & spacious. Food is good. Drop off and pick up from BanGanga is complimentary once during the stay. However pic up or drop from Helipad is chargeable. Travel desk is good and airport drop was even cheaper than what we paid to the prepaid taxi counter uy while coming to Katra. Just in front of the hotel you get access to ATM's of most banks.
