Reviewed July 3, 2012

Its a good property in front of Dal Lake but run by JKTDC therefore the services are not so good, rooms messey, light problems in room, a wine shop is there in the same premises therefore there is crowd in every evening. Location wise its very good everything is in walking distance like taxi stand, market, resturants.

Room Tip: stay in Front side rooms facing to Dal Lake

The super deluxe rooms of the hotels are newly built and its worth paying Rs 3500 per day for the same, but in comparison the simple deluxe rooms lack facilities and are much over priced at Rs 3000 per day. So it is advisable to go for super deluxe rooms if you are planning to stay in hotel heemel...

Property location is good but it could have been made excellent if JKTDC could have managed it better with some more staff to manage the property. Cost wise it is on a higher side vis a vis what you get. Bottom line its a good property wasted due to lack to of maintenance.

Location is good but the price-wise on a higher side

Room Tip: take rooms in the fourth floor for better view of dal lake

We booked two room through J & K tourism and stayed for 3 days. One of the prime location right in front of Dal Lake. Every thing you require for eating and shopping is at walking distance. Maintenance and staff behavior is different if you are not from local government. View of lake will freshen you anytime. Limited Dinning available at a cost.

Room Tip: All rooms face Dal Lake. Prefer third or fourth floor.

The Hotel is located in a prime locality on the Boulevard along the beautiful Dal Lake. It is a JKTDC property with about 72 rooms. The rooms are large with big toilets, which were fairly clean. There is also a nice lawn and garden in front of the building.The staff were quite hospitable. We had some house keeping issues that the staff somehow resolved. There is a restaurant which is clean with limited options of food, but the prices are exorbitantly high. However, we preferred to eat here because of the nice ambience although there are some good but crowded places just nearby. The main attraction of the hotel is its proximity to Dal Lake and all activity happens around here like Shikara ride etc. There is a Travel Agency in this hotel building, ‘Himalayan Glacier Tours and Travels’ who arrange sightseeing trips if one wishes. However, the management has missed an opportunity to make this a great place by not having better maintenance and upkeep. Though not a top class hotel it is a still a decent hotel around this area for a short stay.

Room Tip: Rooms on top floors at right wing

PLUSes:
- Big spacious rooms + balcony
- Great view of the beautiful Dal.
- Government wine shop in the premises.
- They have a travel agency agency in their premises - Himalayan Glacier Services . They are very decent (Azhar & Mehraj) and very helpful. Even if you are not staying in Heemal, I suggest you use their services.
- Food was very good.

MINUSes:
- It's a government property. People treat it like a public place - throw their plates outside rooms. Smoke in corridors.
- You need to pay in advance.
- Understaffed

Room Tip: Room 101 (super deluxe) was excellent. It's a corner room.
