srinagar as a destination can be quite expensive for the budget traveller since usually the typical travel packages cost between 30 to 40 k or more per head... if u are looking to explore this tiny piece of unsafe paradise on a budget then go stay at the hilal palace.. make ur hotel bookings through goibibo.com.they have a tie up with this hotel and if u book well in advance u can get amazing discounts and unbelievable per day rates for this hotel..
go with an open mind.., its difficult to get budget hotels in srinagar and in a reasonable cost this is the best the city has to offer...i m writing this from my personal experience,,, ITS WORTH IT!!! STAFF IS GOOD., OPEN MINDED , HELPING AND ARE GOOD IN CONVERSATIONS... they speak hindi and english to...please REMEMBER U ARE IN SRINAGAR.. pls keep ur talks restricted to tourism, family life, beauty of srinagar ETC
WHETHER U ARE INDIANS OR FOREIGNERS U ARE GOING TO TRAVEL AND ENJOY THE BEAUTY OF THE PLACE... dont WASTE UR TIME AND ANYONE ELSES TIME IN SRINAGAR DISCUSSING POLITICS, AND SENSITIVE ISSUES..., this hotel or any hotel or with any local people... it is a sensitive zone and thoughts,perceptions, minds and hearts of the population is also sensitive..
respect that and stick to ur business which is to enjoy the place, have a vacation and look good in ur pictures!!!
ENOY UR STAY,FOOD , TRAVEL.,CLICK PICTURES.BUY KASHMIRI CLOTHES AND DRINK KAWA... AND BE SMART,TRAVEL SAFE..BE AWARE OF UR SURROUNDINGS AND KEEP IN TOUCH WITH UR FAMILY,FRIENDS AND KEEP SEEING NEWS FOR ANY ISSUES...PREPAID SIM CARDS DO NOT WORK IN SRINAGAR,,ONLY POSTPAID SIMS WORK... KEEP UR CONTROVERSIAL THOUGHTS AND WORDS REGARDING SENSITIVE ISSUES IN UR MIND AND MOUTH...please dont travel this far TO THINK,TALK AND DEBATE ON SENSITIVE ISSUES,..as long as u are in srinagar SOAK UR SOUL AND MIND IN THE FRESH OXYGEN, FLOWERS,CULTURE AND UNENDING GREENERY AND FLOWERS OF ALL COLOURS...ur trip there is of some days ,make the most of it ,,
.there is a pretty garden right in front of the rooms and u can sip ur morning tea in the cool ,fresh air. and hear the birds chirping...u can see the mountains and clouds from rooms on the higher floor and little fields of yellow flowers and local agriculture... the rooms are spacious with nice,pretty carpets, tables,chairs, sitting area, good water supply in washrooms with geyser facility and location wise ...it is reasonably good..as soon as u are on the main road there are many autos to take u anywhere u want and it is 5 to 10 mins in auto from dal lake... there are many dhabas and typical indian restaurants outside the hotel where u can eat fresh and yummy food... there are grocery and medical stores also.. . u will find nice shops selling kashmiri kurtas,suit pieces, stoles,shawls, etc.. but do remember to bargain as prices for tourists are inflated and having a good haggling capacity is a A SKILL WHICH ALL INDIANS USUALLY POSSES!!!
The hotel has room service for breakfast and morning tea...
but please keep in mind that dont go with extra ordinarily high expectations... for the price u r paying the services u r getting are much higher in return... like is the issue in all budget hotels cleanliness of bedsheets,pillow cases can be an issue...u can always insist and have them changed..or carry your own bedsheets and pillow cases in ur luggage,, I DO THAT/// if i m on a budget TRAVEL I CARRY MY OWN TOWELS,2 BEDSHEETS AND PILLOW COVERS///.IT IS NOT TAJ.., and if u want 5 star service then pay for it and go to a 5 star ... staying in budget hotels and then criticising makes no sense because THIS IS INDIA AND u will get usually get exactly what u pay for... please dont expect that u will pay few hundreds of rupees and u will get customer service of a 5 star or the world will be at ur feet....
everyone is out to make their money..if u are staying here u are trying to save ur money and the hotel is also trying to provide what they can in the rate they are charging u!!! if u are willing to not pay attention to minor issues in any budget hotel then ur stay and travel can be very fulfilling and experiential!!! enjoy ur stay and travel in the sizzling srinagar...which can simply sizzle and dazzle ur mind with its charm,beauty and ethereal appeal!!!
Hotel not in good condition. Room service is zero & behavior of staff & owner was so cheap. Their blankets & bedsheets were so dirty as they sticks badly. They treat their customers with their tourchring nature. There was no dinner & breakfast facility in the hotel they provide coupons to their of road side dhaba's.
This budget hotel is having a very good location near the Dal Lake at Dal Gate.This hotel is very much tranquil.The staffs are very good and the owner is very friendly.The service of this hotel is still not proper(takes a lot of time to response).The availability of hot&cold water is 24hrs and the bathrooms are also big and clean enough.The rooms are spacious and the conditions are also very good.
one of the best hotel in Srinagar city nearest in dallake dalgate
