Very good location. We have advised for Lalit but according to us taj is better in all respect even though doesn't have large property as Lalit . 1st day they gave us ground floor room but next day they gave us real good room which has a full dal lake view.

Room Tip: Mainly 1st floor has dal lake view

Good points:
- Views are stunning
- Controlled-temperature outdoor pool
- Good room and restaurant service - quick, polite, smiling and unobtrusive
- Wide choice of indian food for breakfast and really amazing bakery, haven't tried better in whole Asia
- Superb in-room bathroom with strong hot water pressure and pretty nice amenities
- Good chinese restaurant (nothing to shout about nevertheless)

Not so good:
- Dirt everywhere. That is quite common for India, but if you say "5* hotel"… Dirty chairs at Latitude restaurant, spots on carpet in the room, waiters removing crumbs from tables by simply brushing it off to the floor with their hands and so on
- No healthy food choices at the breakfast buffet. Indian food is oily, spicy and heavy for the stomach, so if you cannot digest it, a very limited choice of fruits is the only alternative.
But that's, of course, my personal claim, sausages and oily omelettes presented.
- If you prefer not to go for the breakfast buffet, you cannot order any food a la carte until 8.00 am - there is no in-room dining options at night and early morning hours
- The food in Latitude is definitely not the best indian cuisine in Srinagar. Just ok.
- Internet is chargeble and quite expensive. Moreover, despite we paid for it, it didn't work first night. And you should pay extra if you want to connect more than one device.
- The room itself is a freezer. The door to the terrace can't be closed properly, so there are huge holes right to the street. So we were sleeping with a heater, which was provided after request.
- Strange very firm bed linen, looked more like a linen case and no bath robes provided.
- When we called for technicians to solve Internet problems they came in to our room right in their dirty shoes from the street
- There is nothing at all in walking distance around the hotel
- It is quite cold in November and everytime you want to reach reception or go to breakfast/restaurant you should put on all the clothes including overcoat because main building is quite far from the cottages.
- Electricity went down several times during our stay. Although it was fixed very quickly.
- Despite on official website they have information about spa in hotel, there is no spa :)

So what in any other country would be not more than 3*, in India is 5*. But comparing to other hotels in the city (except Lalit, which I haven't tried), the property is overall acceptable.

Being a new property I had got mixed reviews about this and wasn't sure before going. Whatever were the pros and cons I would say this property has the 'taj' touch and this makes me go back to taj again and again as there are no surprises. By which I mean, the service levels are very high and the staff is very courteous and as most properties, hotel has pleasant and welcoming surroundings and food is great!

We had a nice spacious room ( premium indulgence) and the check in was very smooth. The room opens into their garden with a view of the dal lake and the valley. I would suggest to take the higher floor room if you want better view.I wanted garden access as I was with my 1 year old child and he loves to run around. They were very prompt and looked after all our requests revolving around my child. I loved the pool , it was perfect temperature and the perfect setting!We used the hotel car for airport transfers and various other trips , the service was great. The front desk staff was very helpful in general. The food was very good in the chinese and the latitude restaurant. The location is close to most sights to see. There is a shawl shop inside the hotel which has the finest wares. I was quite happy with my stay and would not agree with the critiques for this property. Downside would only be that its not as vast as its closest competitor Lalit and has a modern feel as compared to Lalit's old world charm.

Room Tip: Go for ground floor for garden access

One of the top 2 properties in Srinager. Excellent view from each room. The hotel is on top of the cliff and has very good view.

There are 2 restaurants, initially we had a bad experience with the food, but the chef took care of us for the rest of the time. The hospitality was excellent, good service by the hotel staff.

The view while having breakfast in the open was superb. Feel refreshed after coming back from there.

Surely I would come back to the hotel, however there are few improvements such as no spa, steam or gym, the pool is in open, prefer to be indoor with temprature control. No kids area to play.

The room are very spacious especially the bathroom. Really enjoyed my stay and very relaxation.

Its a new hotel, hope they continue this way.

We were there for 5 nights,and it was one of the best holiday experience we had.The view is
Breathtaking and the weather was beautiful all day,nights were cold and the air was pure and the entire atmosphere just amazing.
The entire staff from the security,housekeeping,waiters,in room dining,front desk staff all were just always there for us helpful ad service was just fantastic,the chefs went out of their way making us whatever our requirement,in short the entire team at the Taj Dal View made our trip memorable.I would certainly go back and also recommend it to all my friends all over the world.Srinagar is not complete without staying there for sure.The best in Srinagar.
