“Excellent Location and Good Service”
Reviewed 26 December 2013

We stayed at the hotel for 2 nights... Away from the hustle and bustle of the city.. The service is excellent with a homely warmth and the food was awesome.. It is a 14 room property with 3-4 sitting areas beside Nigen Lake with fantastic views and a garden. They tried thier level best to make our stay comfortable..They have antiques like tiger skin, cheetah skin, deer horns... The rooms are medium sized and the experience was truly great!!!

Room Tip: The lake view rooms are really good.

We stayed in dar es salam based on tripadvisor reviews but found our experience as average. No doubt the hotel enjoys a lovely location overlooking nageen lake but there are hardly any restaurants/ cafés in the surrounding areas as the hotel is in downtown Srinagar. Rooms and food are average with nothing outstanding, service though is personalised and good. I would recommend this hotel for an overnight stay.

Room Tip: Ask for lake facing rooms

GeneralManagerHDS, General Manager at Hotel Dar-Es-Salam, responded to this review, 23 December 2013
The above review has been written by our esteemed client who stayed with us
recently. We are grateful that he/she has taken the time to write in a
review. There are just a couple of points we would like to clarify for our
viewers/reviewers and potential clients. Hotel Dar-Es-Salam is located in
proper Srinagar city not in any outskirts . We are at the Junction where
the Dal Lake meets the Nageen Lake so in fact our clients get the best of
both worlds as they are not in the hustle bustle surrounding the Dal lake
but on the more exclusive and quieter Nageen Lake. However our clients can
hop onto a Shikara ( Traditional Kashmir Boat) that comes to pick you up
from the Hotel's Garden itself and just about a 100 meters is a bridge and
under the bridge on the other side one is onto the Dal Lake. You are about
5.5 kms from the Dal Gate area. It is however a personal choice of clients
and we completely respect that if some clients prefer the peaceful and
calm surroundings or the hustle /bustle on the dal lake. We do have the
Nageen club close by and also a few restaurants that sell shawarmas/wraps
very close to us. However if any client is keen on visiting the main market
area , that is not more that 15 minutes ( approx 7 kms) by car. It maybe
noteworthy that all the nicer properties be it the Taj or the Lalit are
also a bit away from the main Dal Gate area, as that area especially in
season is now characterized by traffic jams, road vendors and mainly budget
accommodation. So to reiterate our earlier point that it is definitely a
personal choice of a client where he/she would prefer to stay depending on
their overall holiday motivations. We are right on the Nageen Lake and
besides that being our USP, we also provide many facilities a few of which
are mentioned below for the benefit of our potential clients: 24 hours
power back up , 24 hours hot water, 40 inch LED Televisions in all rooms
with HD channels, Tea/coffee maker in all rooms, Refrigerators in all
rooms, personal locker in all rooms, EPABX system in all rooms, 6" Godrej
Spring Spa Mattresses in all rooms, high quality bedding with Duvets and
electric blankets, central heating through radiators which is controlled
through individual knobs on each radiator are just some of the basic
facilities in place. We again thank our client for writing in and we wish
them a Happy and Prosperous New Year along with an appreciation for them
having chosen us for their stay in Srinagar.

the hotel is located very well and has a fantastic view of the nagin lake. it has a beautiful and big garden with an amazing amount of flowers and trees. the hotel is pretty small with a bungalow and home like charm. the staff is very nice and cordial. the rooms too are comfortable and medium sized.

I am sure Money is the last thing in the mind of the owner of this cute little hotel.
The hotel has 6 rooms (if I am not wrong), 3-4 sitting areas and a beautiful garden. Staff is extremely friendly.
Before we reached Srinagar Airport, we had already got a call from the hotel, to check for airport pick up.
We were given choice of room on our arrival.
Rooms were clean and very very peaceful.
Breakfast and Meals were not included in our tariff plan and it gave us choice for having food elsewhere.
The Hotel garden overlooks Lake which is full of Lotus flowers. Garden itself is well maintained.

The hotel stands fit to its Tripadvisor ranking. I am not sure of the actual star rating of the hotel, but for me its nothing less than 7 star.

Room Tip: - Room heating is not as effective. So one may wish to start the heater even when not in room. - Ho...

I have booked this hotel for 3 nights (7th DEC - 10th DEC2013) ... i had booked this for only reason for selecting this hotel as best in tripadvisor.

Hotel Location is very scenic & Staff are very friendly. But the facilities are not upto the mark as it supposed to be. They didnt even offer toothpaste (which is very essential in star hotels as toothpaste is not allowed in flights) ... Room Heating facilities are very poor ....

Breakfast & Dinner are very expensive ... Didnt felt like Worth ...
