I stayed at Sarovar for three nights, on a family/business trip. The hotel had its own pro and cons. Srinagar is a beautiful place, and the hotel's location is definitely a plus. Even though while we checked in it took us time and it was a time consuming process, but alas the rooms were comfortable and relaxing. The level of Sarovar group is higher to maintained yet, but this is a good try. I took a presidential suite and deluxe room, the rooms size is good enough and the so is the hygiene. There can be a bit of maintenance problem with the equipment provided by the hotel (like hair dryer, electric kettle and others) but rest is fine. For the price the hotel seems fine. Breakfast is def an average considering the 4 star image of hotel, but its not bad for custom made bfast. Chef in hotel has great local skills of food, and makes you taste kashmir in every bite. Hotel located o such a location can be not suggested to handicap people, as its not handicap friendly. The view is awesomely nice and peaceful. I would be an added benefit to have an airport pick n drop service and wifi in rooms complimentary. Hotel staff is way to helpful and keen on improvements of all type. Major issues like wifi and airport services are found in all hotels in srinagar irregardless of hotel type. It does leave a big room for improvements with little issues but overall it was a lovely stay. Comforting on all levels, it would be great to see it grow in a better form. Suggested for couples, family and business stays. i had a great experience thanks to Imran Wani, who helped me book the rooms, and made us feel like home. Thanks to him we got a great hotel, and he was a good help in suggesting us place to visit and things to do. He took care of all issues that were troubling us to make our stay better. The hotel though was completely jam packed but we didnt regret the service, we were given good preference and were made to feel special. All though there were many problems, the staff was helpful n eager to make us comfortable.
