Be mindful of few of the thumb-rules in Kashmir - 1) Don't trust any stranger or touts 2) Be alert of your surroundings 3) No evening/ night life 4) Markets open only after 10am and close by 5pm 5) Don't be intimidated by presence of Army, Military and Forces every 500m. Coming to the hotel, this was the most comfortable stay we had throughout our journey, as it seemed to be newly built hotel and even the rooms were spacious and comfy and the bed and mattress was clean, hygienic and soft. There was a working LED TV with Cable connection to catch up on news. Also, there was mini-fridge in room for use. Bathrooms were clean and spacious and curtains and windows were clean and neat. In-house complimentary breakfast and dinner spread was wholesome and filling and satisfactory. However, location of this hotel is such that, there is nothing nearby. You have to confine yourself to room after 6pm, as almost everything is closed after 5pm.. not even a tea stall, you can find. Service is good and staff is friendly.
