The hotel is located about a km away from dal lake on the mountain top. The approach to the lake is not so great with a narrow road going towards the lake. The hotel has a good lawn and a restaurant where they served breakfast and other items on prior request. The staff was friendly and view of the dal lake was good albeit from height and a distance. The rooms we booked for 3 adults were bigger with an additional bed unlike many other hotels where they have the same room and add a bed in the same place. Drawback - furnishings are being done. A very high step to the bathroom in the first floor 3 people room. Double room - first room on right side after entry is great with best furnishings. All the rooms are not standard - there are differences in each room. Also, hotel is difficult to locate.
The Himalayan resort is located nestled at the base of the mountains overlooking rice fields and in the distance, dal lake (it's on the north side of dal lake near the taj hotel). Everyday one can hear the beautiful harmonies of call to prayer from the various mosques of Kashmir echoing from the balcony at the hotel, but no car honking because it's far from the main part of the city. Sunsets are perfect to watch on this balcony too. The staff is friendly and helpful , there are many tours possible to experience based on what you're interested in... We were there during major protests so unfortunately many tourist sites were shut down and unsafe to visit but our hotel accommodated us the best they could by taking us for a day hike instead, and setting us up with a houseboat for a few nights and organizing a tour to Naranag in the mountains to see the gypsy way of life (the tour was called gypsy tour). The food is delicious and always uses fresh ingredients. There is a thangka and jewelry salesman named Amad that can come to show you nice things to buy-- he has a good selection, reasonable prices and is a nice guy.
I had booked 2 rooms here through GoIbibo for 4th June, 2016. Booking was confirmed and I was having confirmation voucher from Go Ibibo. But the hotel management got lured by some other customer who must have given higher rates. When we reached the hotel we were told that room is not available in that hotel. As a substitute they offered us rooms in very cheap hotel named Jannat International or asked us to take our money back. It was a terrible experience. After a long and strenous journey we had no alternative but to accept the room in Jannat Int'l where we got quite ordinary rooms and stale food. In this land of hospitality, the hotel staff is really cheatster. We really had a nightmare for our stay period here. Traveller beware of such fraudsters and commercial minded persons.
Very nice hotel, we stay here 3 nights. Its a very quiet place, You will get very nice scenery from Himalayas & Dal Lake. Its staff was energetic & cooperative. Food is very good. One weak point that hotel is very far from market.
Very odd location .. Google map shows wrong location it can misguide you .. Our local driver could find the hotel after 1 hr. & Mobile number provided by hotel was always out of reach . Electronic blanket was not working. They didn't fix it even after complaining twice. No power plugs to charge mobile & camera. Dirty bedsheets Cheap interiors
