Hotel JH Bazaz (Happy Cottage)
Ranked #2 of 136 Hotels in Srinagar
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 13 August 2014

We stayed here in early August. Mr. Sarvar was an excellent insight to the region and helped us to decide/finalize areas to visit. He also provided transportation service which was very comparable in pricing. The meals were good. The rooms were also clean and I would go back to this B & B without any hesitation.

As the earlier reviewers said, the experience is just like staying in somebody's house. Loved every bit of it. the moment you get down from your car near the temporary parking for it you will start thinking Oh GOD what a big mistake i made in booking this place...now when you start moving towards the property your confidence increases and then you finally enter this clean place you actually get a shock how beautiful a lotus can be in a dirty pond, the best part about this property is the direct involvement and interaction of owner with the guest as with us Sarwar acted more as a friend. Also while staying there i realized that if i would be staying in The Lalit which is one of the most expensive hotel in srinagar and if i had came across any problem?? will the owner come to listen it??? Certainly not, as they have staff to cater it but frankly speaking i had stayed with big hotel chains, never ever found the senior management so accessible, they have their own set protocols to revert back that too on your travel back. The property is clean, family friendly, and above all safe. The only drawback is the dirty pond outside i mean the outside location but in this budget you will surely ignore it.

Room Tip: Go for newly renovated rooms at second floor though the whole property will be going on a complete r...

Mr.Sarwar is very good at making you feel home and comfortable. He is very well equipped beginning with communicating while booking to making trip arrangements.Their driver Mr.Abdul is just awesome and one need not go beyond to tour kashmir.

Mr. Sarwar and the hospitality at Bazaz deserve the praise they get from fellow reviewers.We stayed here from 2nd to 4th July,2014. Mr. Sarwar was more a trustworthy friend than the hotel owner. He helped us with our local travel, luggage and accommodation during the trip in a cost efficient and helpful manner. I would recommend this stay if you are travelling on a budget.

The rooms were clean and comfortable - the new rooms on 2nd floor more so than the cottage at ground level. Food variety in the hotel was limited but there are nice multi cuisine Dhabas at a walking distance.The only scope for improvement was in the location. Though the hotel is at a walkable distance from The Dal Lake, the connecting streets are narrow and get filthy during rains.

Thanks for everything, Sarwar .

Room Tip: Prefer rooms on the second floor - they are new and clean. Avoid the cottage at ground floor - its c...

We, a family of three, stayed in JH Bazaz Hotel from 12-16th July for our vacation in Srinagar. It was easily the best hotel of our whole vacation. The rooms, especially the bathroom, were clean and excellently well-maintained every day. Mr. Sarwar, the hotel owner, was a great host and my father followed all his advices when we went to Gulmarg and Sonemarg as they were very effective. We stayed in a houseboat for one night, given by Mr. Sarwar, as no room was available in the hotel on that night, and the houseboat was also excellent. The location is also very good, very near Dal Lake. Even the food here is excellent. I would recommend everyone to consider Hotel JH Bazaz as an excellent budget hotel with all amenities available on their vacation in Srinagar.
