Since we had not made advance reservations for Srinagar, were thankful that we were accommodated at Shahenshah hotel. The location is very good, @ Dal Gate 3, right on Boulevard Road, with lots of restaurants and shops all around. also its just a Rs. 50 auto ride from markets like Lal Chowk, Polo View, Residency Road, etc. the taxi stand is nearby. The building looks grand from the outside and they have a lovely lobby too.
But the rooms : not maintained well, stains on the walls, worn out furnishings, the shower area has fabricated aluminium doors (instead of a cubicle). No toiletries, yellowing towels. also the service is bad - both housekeeping, front desk. I understand that they have a lot of assured business from a few tour operators - so they are not concerned about serving other guests.

Room Tip: get a lake facing room...

As part of heena tours JK3 family package, I stayed at Shahenshah Palace hotel. We checked-in on 15-May (Thursday) and checked-out on 17-May (Sat).

It's located right opposite to Dal Lake, great view!

Shahenshah is decent 3 star hotel. Food provided by heena tours inside hotel is great. They organized DJ as well.

Room Tip: Look for room facing Dal Lake, higher floors.

We have just left from this hotel yesterday. It was very poor. Room service very bad. No one turns around. Bathrooms are very small and doesn't have hot water. Not clean at all. The food is also average. Reception people are nice and co-operative. Reception area is also good. No view from the majority of the rooms. When you are in Srinagar, it's all about view. Go for other better options. The only USP is its location which is the best..

I have stayed in this hotel twice. The location is the USP of this hotel as this is just opposite to Dal lake. The view is pretty good. The rooms are nice and cozy. They are comfortable. Staff is pleasant and helpful. Food is delicious. The room tariff is little on higher side.

Room Tip: Take a room near to the road with Dal view

The hotel is one of the last hotels on the Boulevard road. We did not have an advance booking and just walked in into this hotel searching for one. The reception is very 80's style but beautifully done in traditional Kashmiri style. A look at the reception, and we thought it must be expensive. However we were pleasantly surprised to see the rates. The manager showed us 2 rooms, one of the deluxe category in the main building. Room was spacious, carpeted and lake facing. Second, he showed us the cottage rooms, which we finally booked at a price of Rs.2500 per night. Room was clean and comfortable, just that the bathroom was too small. Room service quick and one coffee we ordered would easily suffice 2 people. Overall a good stay. However, avoid eating in the hotel restaurant as food is nothing great and expensive too. There are a lot of options available on walking distance from the hotel. Overall, a comfortable stay.

Room Tip: Go for cottage rooms on the ground floor if travelling with children. the corridor space outside the...
