Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed March 11, 2013

Dont expect too much luxury as this is a budget hotel but an awesome one. Mr. Sarwar was very friendly and welcoming. The room were good looking. The hot blankets were awesome. The food was too good. tip - ask for kashmiri pulow or any punjabi dish. Dont hesitate, just call this hotel and book Highly recommended.

We visited Kashmir in August 2012.. I wanted to do all prior booking to avoid any last minute overhead of searching hotels.. With so many good reviews and being in budget, Hotel J H Bazaz became my obvious choice... I will not go into details of hotel as most of it is all-ready covered in other reviews.. But I would say its a nice clean homely accommodation with friendly owner(Mr. Sarwar) and staff... Also like to thank Sarwar for offering that wonderful Kashmiri drink Kahwa..
Would love to come there again... this time in winters... :)

If what you desire is a home away from home experience on your vacation then my advice to you is to call sarwar or mr. javed at Jh Bazaz (HAPPY COTTAGE) without any hesitation.It has been a wonderful experience in srinagar thanks to both these gentlemen (a father and son team par excellence)
The name Happy Cottage is apt for the experience there is a warm and happy one despite the lurking chill outside The driver selected to take us to Gulmarg was also a wonderful young man who i remember kept us chirpy with his entertaining music .For 3 females with 2 kids it was certainly a safe haven .The food was great and served with such warmth as well Hats off to Sarwar and his band of dedicated helpers. We loved the dal .....most ....food was always yummy.
In a time when money matters most for services rendered . faith in humanity is restored in the form of sarwar and mr.javed.....who ensure that their guests are happy above all else. Our drive to jammu couldnt materialize as a result of road closures and it was through the help of Sarwar that we were able to make arrangements for flight tickets so that we could undertake our pligrimage to the Vaishnodevi Shrine .Thank you for this in particular.
We were guided and advised by Sarwar on everything that pertained to our trip to Srinagar.My spiritual master says "Love all and serve all" and the management most certainly lives by this .May your establishment grow from strength to strength and may many people of the world enjoy your hospitality

Stayed in Hotel JH Bazaz during 11 - 15 Dec and engaged the driver from the Hotel JH Bazaz to go to Soonamarg, Phalmagram and Gulmarg. The driver has an excellent and safe driving skill!!! We started our day tours at 9am daily. It would be better if the day tour can start earlier as it takes around 2-3 hours to reach the 3 mentioned places and we need to reach back to Hotel at around 6pm. We have only a few hours to visit those places and few hours are really too little as all the 3 places are really Beautiful during Winter.

Ate our dinner daily in Hotel JH Bazaz. Excellent food from excellent cook. Highly recommended.

When I booked the hotel, he told me it will be look like your second home. When I came to srinagar really I felt the same. Hotel room’s are neat and clean and food’s are good and he arranged the special kashmiri food for us (special thanks for the kashmiri food). Not only the hotels, has he guided to our entire trip. This trip really a remarkable moment in my life. Once again I thank the entire hotel management.
