“Home away from home...”
Reviewed 10 November 2012

We visited Srinagar and had a 3 nights 4 days trip. This place turned this trip into one of the most memorable times of my life. A true example of home away from home. We had initially planned to move to a house boat on dal lake, but after spending sometime here, decided to continue staying. Will just give you a few quick pointers for a reason to stay in Vikram Hotel Srinagar

1. Location - 200mtrs walk from lal chowk, the most prominent place.. away from the rush, 2.5kms from dal gate, 14kms from airport.
2. Food - Owners living in the same premises...home food with a choice of pre-ordering your meals
3. Service - Courteous service with smile
4. Safety and Security - A part of the place leased out to J&K govt and currently taken over by friendly CRPF officials
5. Cleanliness and hygiene maintained with 24x7 hot water
6. Affordable
7. a big garden in the premises with lovely flowers... best place to enjoy winter sun...
8. personalized treatment from one and all
9. Spacious rooms and bathrooms

thanks again Mr. Vikram & family for the wonderful experience, we will be back soon...... :)

Me and my wife stays here for 8 days. It's a very nice clean, well maintained hotel. It's also very cheap in price. The behaviour of all staffs were awesome. Specially the Hotel Owner Vikram bhai & her wife helps us a lot. It's like our second home being there. Food, Room, Service everything was very beautiful. It was became a great memory being there. Thanks Vikram Bhai for their best accompany.

Hotel Vikram is really very spacious hotel. And it is situated in the heart of the city. We have really nice time in the hotel. Service provided by hotel and chitari travels is as per our expectations.

We planned a family trip to Kashmir and did our bookings with Chitari travels - who are cheaters as they did not provide anything that is expected when you book a holiday! We took flights and reached Kashmir, very excitely but were in for a shock when we reached this hotel, which was in a secluded area and not a single other hotel or decent building around it. The surrounding area was all dilapated buildings and did not remotely give a feel that we were in Kashmir! The 80% hotel rooms of the hotel is occupied by Army with few rooms for civils, we were the only people that were suppose to stay there but seeing the sorry state of rooms and the overall surroundings, we insisted our travel agent - Chitari to provide us a hotel with better facilities. Initially he kept us high and dry in spite of franctic calls from my end - finally when we told him we need another hotel for 4 nights and last 2 nights we would move to a hotel on our expense, that is when he moved us to another hotel - which was again no great but had a decent entrance though no heating or running hot water! Although, we managed to enjoy the overall experience of seeing the beautiful Kashmir but out spirits sure dampened with the hotel that was initially provided to us. So travellers beware of cheater agencies like Chitari travel who claim to be superior but are nothing but frawd and rightfully should be called Cheater Travels.

Room Tip: Don't even think of staying here.

Thanks for your review. I am sorry if you feel cheated by M/s Chitari Travels. First of all I want to inform you that ours is a budget hotel and we cater only that tourist who may not afford costly hotels. We are situated in the heart of Srinagar city (just 1/2 km from Lal Chowk, the main city center). However being in the city the approach roads are narrow. Moreover this being just the start of tourist season we were in the middle of some serious repairs. I myself was out of station when you visited our place. I feel what Chitari Travels have charged you for our rooms is much more than our tariff. We have many many clients who are regular to our Hotel and we offer our best services to all. It is true that some of our rooms are rented to government department for accommodating CRPF personals. You may feel free to mail any further query at hotelvikram@gmail.com. Once again I feel sorry for what happened and inconvenience is deeply regretted.
