I was in Srinagar for 3 days (27-30 Dec 2012) with my family members. I searched a lot to identify good hotel, tripadvisor reviews were helpful in selecting Hotel Centre Point (a Unit of Dilshad Group). We booked hotel through their sales office in Delhi (website: www.hotelinrinagar.com) we also booked 3night/4day tour package. Though initially i sensed little bit of mis-communication between sales office and hotel manager ( when i contacted hotel manager, Mr Bashir, 2 days before we started, i was told that first day accommodation is at house boat, but latter he confirmed our accommodation at hotel for all the 3 nights), every thing has gone as per the plan. We wee in Room No 202 & 203 (Deluxe Rooms, with central heating and A/Cs with heating option). Rooms are spacious well maintained with designer furniture, LCD TV, and mini refrigerator. Housekeeping was done every day. There was problem is wifi service on the day we arrived ( i was told it was due to the factor beyond the control of hotel manager), latter it was restored but was available only in the reception area.
More importantly , hospitality was very good, particularly Mr Shafi was nice to serve us hot and tasty food. Manager Mr Bashir was also nice enquiringly our comfort every time we met. Driver Mr Khader was very co-operative giving us plenty of time to see and enjoy places leisurely, taking us to shopping places... We were taken care of from the point we landed at Srinagar Airport till we were dropped back to the airport. It is a memorable experience for us.
Power supply in the city seems to be erratic. But the hotel has power backup, for short duration power failure. One of the nights there was a major power breakdown, which could not be rectified till the next morning, hotel managed to operate backup till midnight, but we did not feel the effect of power breakdown.
We enjoyed snow fall at Gulmarg and Sonmarg which were like paradise on the earth and also Shikara of Dal Lake. We want to visit again in spring season to see the flora and fauna of Kashmir.
