JKTDC Pahalgaon Huts
Reviewed July 2, 2012

The JKTDC bunglow is quite far from the main market.You have to walk a lot and it is on the hill.SO you would have to treak all the way to the huts.There is no transport available to reach there.The only means is by walking. Further the tourist bunglow is again situated on high mountain, which means you have to climb up a lot of stairs to reach the rooms.This is very cheap, which is only the advantage otherwise not a recomended option.Please do not book this if you have a family or elders.
The rooms are in pathetic condition.Not maintained at all.Further when we went there was only one person who was the cook, the manager and everyone.
The rooms are very scary and smell.The bathrooms had broken tiles and there is no room service available.
It would be a nightmare for people with family and kids.

Room Tip: If you do not have budget constraints, please book hotel pahalgaom or mount view pahalgam

I arrived at Pahalgam after having booked 3 1BHK JKTDC huts at Pahalgam atleast a month in advance and was told upon arrival that only two were available as someone had decided to over-stay. With little option, we decided to go ahead with the other two cottages.
One look inside the cottage and my Pahalgam stay was doomed! Really old rooms with paint chipping off every corner, some of the worst furniture, beds not having proper mattress, soiled linen and the worst was yet to come. The loo was unhygienic and dirty. When the same was pointed out to the officials, they pointed to some High Court order which bars them from upgrading anything, but am sure the court has not barred cleaning the premises.
I guess a disclaimer should have been carried on the JKTDC site for the pathetic condition of the cottage.
24 hrs restaurant/room service had staff sleeping at 4 PM and we were given directions to the main road for .evening tea/snacks.
Definitely not recommended to anyone visiting Pahalgam.

Room Tip: Do not book at this property. There are a few good one's next to the river.

The Jktdc huts at Pahalgam were truly Great !!! They are of two types -one bedroom +drawing room and dinning room and the others are two bed room +D/D . Both types have a well equipped kitchen along with electric Kettle.Being a larger family group, we had hired one of each type. The two bed roomed cottages are very well located with about 2500 sq ft of private lawn and are on the road, while the one bed roomed ones require you to walk about 100 mtrs.There are very polite attendants provided and they furnish all that you may need right from soda to full packed meals !!!!!!! The best part was the electric blankets provided in the huts...............U get a very cozy feeling getting into a warm bed especially after getting wet in the river rafting ....
My recommendation: Go for it .The two bed room ones really make you feel like an ICS officer of the yore.............sitting in open Verandah and sipping tea ,while a "Maalishwala" messages ur feet ( all for Rs.150/-)and you negotiate with the ubiquiteous shawl sellers........TRULY GREAT !!!!!

Room Tip: Try to get road side cottages as inner ones make you feel lonely at times......
