5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 May 2014

Yes... That,s e lure of this property( and their service)!! We have coming back to this hotel in August!!

We had a wonderful stay here in end of march this year. Special arrangements were made by the F & B team to have a private celebration in the lawns outside our room overlooking the fabulous Dal Lake. Anks to Mr Faisal, acting GM and their resident FnB manager. Salient features :

Location : best in town, perched on a hill

Views : none can beat them ..

Service: outstanding, despite full occupancy

Food : really good, Taj quality..try also Kashmiri items

Rooms : very tranquil. No disturbance from other guests. Each room has a private balcony or a lawn.

Tips : choose rooms on the first floor. Deluxe rooms have a better view than the Premium rooms.

Recommendation : long walks through the fields leading to the top of some of the hills of the Zabarwan range was very refreshing each morning. You can come back for a sumptuous breakfast after the walk. Walking upto the Dal lake is another option. Round trip can take upto 90 minutes with a steep climb on return.

On the whole ...great value for money. That's why we are coming again..!!!

Room Tip: Deluxe rooms on first floor..all rooms face the Dal lake. First floor rooms have a balcony. The grou...

the drive up to the hotel is already beautiful and special! but perched on the top of the hill overlooking Srinagar, one can find this lovely hotel. what amazing views of the lake and the city. checkin/out was VERY slow and service was not up to the Taj quality level. they managed to completely mix up our names and rooms and reservations... but to their credit, they offered us coffee, which was a nice gesture. at checkout, it was also a mess, slow, and confusing--- their reception staff need more training. however, they did provide good info and helped us with a vehicle for our stay in Srinagar--- very helpful. the room was AMAZING and well appointed, huge, nice balcony with gorgeous view of the lake. bed was really comfy, and bathroom was very nice and clean. i got cold (in march) and the hotel brought a heater that made the difference. the restaurant for dinner is ok/ good-- i had pasta and the shorma soup. pasta was ok, and the soup was great. breakfast was a nice spread of buffet-- -and included in price. one potential downside of this hotel-- it's far from town and quite a drive. that's also an upside, since it's remote, quite and very relaxing. overall, an amazing experience-- quite a lovely hotel.

Great exotic place with an excellent view. Awesome view of Dal lake. Finest place to stay in Srinagar. Try for Lake facing room and also ask for celebrity room,a bit expensive but u ll get three side view. Very good staffs, gud breakfast but u won't get authentic Wazwan . For that can try in Adoos or Kareem.

Room Tip: celebrity room

Our room had a wonderful view of the Dal Lake and their infinity pool is a pleasure to swim in. Staff are very helpful and live up to the high standards of The Taj group. However, the food was a bit of a let down, especially the Chinese restaurant. The restaurants are a bit detached from the rooms and in some cases the steps maybe a bit difficult for the seniors and infirm. So, make sure you request for a ground floor room. I'm sure they will oblige if there is an availability.
The hotel is a bit detached and on top of a hill. It's a longish walk to reach the vicinity of the lake and you're left with no choice but to hire a hotel vehicle....a bit steep. The bathroom was large and the room was well equipped with all amenities. Had a pleasant and relaxing stay.

Room Tip: If you have problems with stairs ask for a ground floor room close to the main block.

This was our second trip to Kashmir in the last two years .... last time we stayed at both Lalit and Taj but let me tell you that Taj is one of the best location to stay at Srinagar. The Panoramic view of Dal Lake from the charm rooms of Taj is mind blowing. If you want to experience the real beauty of Srinagar you have to stay at Vivanta Dal View. The staff are excellent special mention is Imran Wani - Front Office Manager and the magical Duty Manager Iqbal who can make your stay memorable ... ever ready to make you feel at home. The chauffeurs used by Taj for city tours and to take you around are very well informed, hands on and above all exhibit impeccable behaviour ... special mention Ejaaz.

Room Tip: Stay in the charm rooms located in the main building .... they are old room but has a awesome view f...

The view is 'just spectacular' from anywhere in the hotel.
Staff is very friendly & caring.
Food, especially at the Chinese restaurant was excellent.
View from room balcony - stunning.
They also have a heated swimming pool.
The bar tender makes great cocktails and is very creative.
I will definitely stay here every time I visit Srinagar.
Few niggles - virtually all lights in the room come on with one switch. Very uncomfortable when 2 or more people are using one room and some are awake & others asleep.
Same with the bathroom - colossal waste of electricity. Light from bathroom window disturbs others who are sleeping.
The welcome letter mentions that fishing can be arranged however, the concierge knows nothing about it.

Room Tip: Ask for a room closer to the restaurants & reception block. Some people might find it difficult...

We stayed here for three nights last week, as an extension to a VJV tour. Our room had a wonderful view of the lake and was very comfortable. Particular mention has to be made of the bathroom which was well equipped and had a constant supply of hot water( not always a notable feature of hotels in India).
However it is the staff here which are the hotel's greatest asset - too many to name- but all very helpful and welcoming. Many thanks , also, for the bouquet of red roses and birthday cake which were a lovely surprise.
