Blooming Dale Hotel Cottages
Ranked #7 of 142 Hotels in Srinagar
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed August 9, 2013

As majestic as Srinagar is as a place, the people are what make this a must visit. As soon as we arrived at Blooming Dale, Firdous greeted my brother and I with Kashmiri tea and crumpets. He took the time to tell us about the history and current situation of Kashmir before giving us a self-guided tour of Srinagar. The staff is constantly looking to meet the needs of their guests, and will go out of their way to make their stay as pleasant as possible (even providing medical care to soothe feet covered in blisters!). I don't believe there is a better value for lodging in all of Srinagar. The Blooming Dale staff provides everything you need: travel services, tour guides, a personal driver, and restaurant, all for a very reasonable price. Needless to say, you will be remiss to forgo staying at Hotel Blooming Dale; everywhere else will be less than what you otherwise could have received.

Besides there are good restaurant nearby.Location is very near Dal lake gate 1.However Dal lake is not visible from hotel.The plus point of this hotel is special care taken by owner for needs of each guest.Sometimes he accompanies each guest in city tour.

Room Tip: ist floor corner room is very good

I along with my wife stayed in Blooming Dale from July 19-21, 2013, the day of visit, curfew took place in the city. But the owner Mr Firdaus was personally present at the airport to pick us up with a curfew pass.(otherwise we would have been stuck at the airport as no taxi's were available) On arrival apart from hot Kahwa we were served with excellent lunch. (As all shops were closed, he still managed non veg for me) .The best part of our stay was his honest advisory and further travel plans for other parts of Kashmir. He touched our lives with taking us for joy ride in his car to various old city places . His intellectual knowledge of various subjects and Gazals (he sang few for us) makes one's trip memorable.His food and other hospitality items are affordable. Do not forget to buy Souvenirs (he has his own showroom) and original saffron from him as outsiders may cheat you. At least honesty and old hospitality is still alive in Kashmir.

Room Tip: Try getting a room facing his excellent maintained Garden or facing nearby hotels garden, visible f...

I with my family visited Srinagar in 1st week of July 2103.I was warmly welcomed by Mr. Firdaus upon arrival with a warm delicious Kahwa. During my stay at Srinagar, he planned my trip to Pahalgam and Gulmarg. He personally showed us the old and heart of the Srinagar which was never possible without his personal attention.Excellent travel advisory was given every time.My trip was overall a memorable trip.

Our family stayed there for 5 days in 3rd week of June 2103. we were warmly welcomed by Mr. Firdaus upon arrival with Kahwa and cookies.

During our stay All promises fulfilled, schedule was followed, got excellent travel / shopping advisory thoughout the trip & most importantly there was a personal touch in all our dealings which made us feel safe with bloomingdale.
Mr. Firdaus of Bloomingdale's is an avid skiier, trekker and more importantly a true gentleman. He is truly a great host, honest guide, friendly and people loving person. He is not just running a hotel but truly enjoying the company of guests from all part of the world. He advised us on the best way to enjoy Kashmir. He in fact took us around personally in Srinagar - he loves Kashmir and loves being a host. His hotel reflects his personality - well maintained, beautiful, sophisticated. He made us feel right at home and helped us with everything.

We had a short but very sweet interaction with Mr. Firdaus. My sincere thanks to the entire Blooming Dale team for giving us all sweet memories and great feelings to savour.

We would strongly recommend a stay there be it single, couple or family.

Room Tip: Ground floor family room is good for family with access to cute little garden.
