Reviewed 3 April 2014

Au début,The locatiion is at the heart of the market in srinagar,on the bank of Dal lake.It is a bigger property in comparison to other around.All the rooms are faced to Dal lake.I lodged in a super deluxe room.Rooms are good and get proactively cleaned.The view was great,Glass doors are taking you through hills and castle.Room service is good,Food is average,what I found the food a bit salty.At the ground floor,I found few shops And travel offices,I rented a cab from one of them.The important matter is the genuinity,I have experienced in transparency.

We had a nice four day stay at Heemal.It is really very well maintained.Overlooking the Dal, you will find a view pleasant to the eyes from every veranda of the hotel.The location is also very good.We were provided with all the necessities.The staff is quite friendly...there are always ready to have a badminton match with you! The interior decorem is something to be noted for its very appreciating.If you are a foody you will be happy to get some good food..well...only during breakfast time.Dinner/Lunch is fine.The rooms have a good space so small kids will find a good place to play.The lawn in front of the hotel is a good place to have a round of excercise in the morning.My opnion is if you are paying a visit to Srinagar for more than a couple of days...Heemal is just the place to lodge in.

Room Tip: Try to get rooms within the first floor..as you will not have to climb the big stairs.If your salary...

The rooms are ok but just rooms. (its just like existing & not living). The manager himself knows that you wouldn't in that hotel for more than a day so even if you pay for 3 days stay he will take 1 day payment at a time . The porters keep on begging for the tips even if they do a smallest favour for you( which may be even switching on a fan). there are no heaters. They switch off the power in the night & say that ther was a power cut . They don't even start the generator of which they make big claims during booking. they are very very big cheats . We had no hot water to bath. When requested to give buckets the flatly refused.They look polite but ones you know them you will join hands& say no to this hotel forever . I think i have a lot of negatives to say but the day seems too small to describe it.

Room Tip: If you want to know what is a nightmare go to this hotel!!!!!! Don't go by the photos of this ho...

Hotel Heemal :- (Rating - Average)
Location is amazing , just bang opposite Dal Lake, enjoyed Dal view from balcony. Hotel staff appeared friendly & cooperative. Stayed there for 3 nights, went to Kashmir for the 1st time with parents. Breakfast was good but dinner was not up to mark.We had directly booked from JKTDC site & got rooms facing Dal Lake.

Himalayan Glacier Tour & Travels :- (Rating - Very Good)
We would like to thank Azhaar Bhai (owner of Himalayan Glacier Tour & Travels ) for making our stay & journey in the Kashmir Valley memorable & enjoyable. I went with my parents to the valley for the 1st time & the hospitality compels to visit the valley umpteen times.

Azhar Bhai is quite humble,reliable , knowledgeable & has good staff.

Also would like to mention about one of his staff /chauffer Riyaz who made our trip so interesting..

Kashmir is our pride & we Indians should do every bit to propagate tourism in the Jannat, Kashmir Valley...

Hope all of you bask in this natural beauty with able guidance from Azhaar Bhai....

This government managed hotel should not be there! Or as the saying goes government should be busy governing and not running hotels! Typical lack of warmth and feel-good-factor in the infrastructure and the staff behaviour. As if we made a crime booking here and making the people work! Service non-existent. Hostel like attitude in the dark dining hall. In a breakfast included plan, with a most basic menu, staff were busy counting how many omelette or bread toast or puri a guest was stealing to eat!!
The premises were leased out to two liquor shops with rowdy crowd hovering over the counters to buy bottles, several police men and vans roaming around to control them, a few state sponsored garment shops and a badly maintained garden; a welcoming hotel environment? Sorry! Can't care less! Apart from giving employment to some non-performing government staff, this place has nothing else to offer! Besides it is located in the crowded part of the boulevard and the Dal. No feel of the Kashmir valley at all. It is far better at the other end of the boulevard. DO NOT STAY HERE. Let this place wither away or privatise to a warmer stay!

Stayed one night, benefited from a walkup discount rate despite high season, paid rs3000 for lake view room only. A government runned hotel so staff dispenses with niceties and can answer questions straight to the point. Very open and spacious reception and dining hall with ugly bulky furniture and cracks around wall and floor tiles. They have a sink for washing hands in the open and toilets for guests downstairs but it needs a good clean. Booked room 304 for view of the hari parabat hill and dal lake. Fantastic bathroom with geyser, sunken shower area, good size mirror and well laid out with necessities. Towels and soap bar provided. Friendly porter but he failed to pick up the phone when we wanted to order breakfast so no tipping for him. Note that tea was pricey and they discourage eating in the room anyway. Bed was queen size and ample walk around space. Outdated tv and furniture but the most important things are there. Location is perfect with the regulated wine shops downstairs and all rickshaw drivers know the hotel. It is also set back from the main road unlike the other hotels so there is less road noise.

Dont stay in this hotel. The hotel management is not sincere i booked 03 rooms on heemal from himachul tourist office,kolkata but when i arrived at srinagar from delhi by flight. They promised me that a cab will be sent from hotel but i was amazed after check out from airport i seed that there were no cabs in outside the airport after calling driver several times he told me that from hotel they didnt informed me about to pick u up at that time he was travelling to pahalgam. We was surprised by hearing this but there were no option for us we have taken a taxi from airport proceed towards hotel but the driver told me that it will cost 1200/- as he will take the up down cost. Atlast after reaching to the hotel another surprise was waiting for us. At the time of check in at the hotel the staff was wanting the booking slip from us i showed him the booking slip. He said me that this is not a valid booking and ur booking has not made and we travelled at april that time kashmir was full packed. I was again amazed at the hotel premises as i was travelling with my wife and one 5yr old my child. I didnt argued with them straight away i gon out from that hotel and i drained 5000 rs. And i choosed a better hotel. I request everbody of this reader dont come to this hotel they are fraud. Choose a better hotel. If u dont have money dont travel then sit at home. My experience was so bad.
