“AVERAGE, Can Develop much more !”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 April 2014

Yes, Being a hotelier, I found this hotel a very basic one.

Good things.
Bed warmers are there, which we found really useful
Situated in front of "Dal Lake" and very convenient Location.
Easy to walk to anywhere in the city. there are many shops and restaurants are situated nearby.
Friendly Manager. Some staff are friendly.


Not so good things
STAFF - I don't see anything wrong with these poor staff. But they need training. I wonder whether they have attended a single training program in their entire life. And the hotel is over staffed. I am sure it is. When ever we come to the lobby we can see there are 6 - 7 staff members are idling in the lobby. You will also see the room boy is in the reception next day.
But one thing. Manager is Quite good, hospitable, and Friendly.

RESTAURANT - Average. The chubby guy acting as the restaurant in-charge has no qualification to be there. First day when we entered to the restaurant he asked us, which travel agent ? I said, I directly booked the hotel. it is a walk in. he answered... Nahi Nihi Nahi (NO NO NO... go go.... you cant eat here....) he were surprised the way he spoke, and finally when we stepped out, the chef came and asked us to come back. Waiters are serving Onion dosa instead of Paneer dosa. Foods are a bit too oily. and many more.

Rooms were noticed all days and noticed the restaurant staff are shouting loud in the ground floor at night.
Had to remind 4 times for toilet papers and it was not available for two nights
Better if you can make a bidet shower as it is necessary for Asians.

Dear Management, I think these things can be solved easily if you pay your attention more on these focused areas.

All the best !

Room Tip: Avoid ground floor

Had been recommended by a friend and stayed there for 4 nights. Experienced great hospitality and the rooms were well maintained. Great location just opposite the Gate 1 of Dal late. And also good options of restaurants around the area.

I would like to share a small experience. I was given a room at the ground floor just next to the reception. As it was a busy area there used to be some noises around. I just spoke to the Manager Mr. Tanveer and without any hassles he shifted my room to a more convenient floor. It was a good gesture and I was totally moved.

Really enjoyed staying there and will stay there again on my next visit too.

Room Tip: Look for the suite room. Gives a good view of the Dal Lake And also has a Café Coffee Day just next...

We stayed in this hotel for 3 nights in March first week 2014. The hotel is located right at the Dal gate and close to Ghat no 1 on the Dal lake. The hotel has ample parking space along with a CCD and a small lawn. The rooms were clean, tidy and well ventilated. The staff were extremely well behaved, courteous and friendly. Some of the short comings were lack of adequate plug points and quantity of hot water in the Geyser. Hardly two buckets of hot water could be filled and we had to wait for one full hour to have more hot water. All the rooms were equipped with electric blanket. The restaurant attached to the hotel serves okayish food but there are plenty of options available at stone's throw distance. On the whole the place is definitely worth the money one pays and the hotel staff make up for the short comings one may find.

We have stayed in Hotel Malik Palace for 4 nights and 5 days. It was a altogether a good stay and we've opted to choose this hotel as we have made itinerary to stay at Srinagar only during Srinagar Trip.

Hotel is located near Dal Gate no 1. Major attraction is Cafe Coffee Day built inside the hotel premises. Food court on the front serves Ok ok quality food. Nearby restaurants like Punjab Dhaba or Delhi Dhaba should be preferred.

Hotel Staff was helpful. Rooms and bathroom were neat and clean with 24 hour supply of hot water.

In my view, this Hotel was worth of cost and should be opted if you are bored of staying at house boat. Good and safe for couples too.

If you are not opting for 5 star hotels then all hotels in Srinagar are more or less stand equal on quality and standard basis, but this hotel wins my preference on basis of its location near to Dal Lake.

Room Tip: Opt for rooms on first floor facing dal lake or backside for proper sunlight

I have stayed in this hotel for 5 nights and 6 days. It was a wonderful stay. Hotel room and bathroom was clean and good. Staff was friendly and food was excellent and quite reasonable. This hotel is good for family and couples. It is safe too.
We had forgotten our wallet there at the time of checkout but got it back with all the belonging. Thanks to Mallik saahab and his staff. I recommend this hotel for all couples and families for a comfortable and safe stay.

Room Tip: This is economical but very good hotel
