Was on a 10 day trip, stayed at multiple location. Interior is good, location is best. But service is poor, room are not that clean/organised. Staff is more interested in tips than service, feel this is overcharged. Other than location, do not deserve this much charges.

I visited for a trip to explore Kashmir! This hotel lies just beside the Dal Lake. You can have a good view from room, food is spicy and tasty. Good travel desk and apart from good travel desk is cheap. Rooms are well equipped with all modern facilities. Nice to stay and relax in the evening. Sight seen arrangement is good.

This was my first visit to Srinagar with my wife. I have stayed in welcome for three days. Location of hotel is very good. Hotel is in prime location of Srinagar and located in front of dal-lake. I was having a very good view of dal-lake from my room. Rooms are big in size with all the facility in that and hotel staff is also very good. Room were clean and interior of hotel was very good.

This hotel is near to Dal Lake & we have view of Dal Lake completely. The breakfast was also good but not complementary. We have used the hotel facility & found good. The staff was cooperative in nature. This is best place to stay & come again for Srinagar beauty.

This was my 7th visit to the valley in the last one year. I am very fond of Kashmir, its people, culture & its food. My visits are purely for relaxation and I snatch time of my hectic routine to visit Srinagar from Delhi even if its for a visit for days or for few hours only by taking the first flight to Srinagar in morning & returning by the last flight of the day to have a Shikara ride in Dal Lake & pack off quickly to catch up with work in Delhi. I have been visiting Srinagar for the last 15 years to be precise now with almost 6-7 trips a year to enjoy in every season whether its dry, wet, snow or spring. Being a travel freak I have stayed in every type of an accommodation from a mere budgeted ones in the interiors of the city to the posh localities paying up-to INR 100/-a day to the best of the properties like Oberoi Palace, Hotel Broadway & the latest in line being The Taj Vivanta. My every stay demands big windows from where I can see the city or the lakes or the mountains or the city life and a balcony, if I am lucky, where I sit down in the evening for a drink and enjoy the pure & cool breeze. My last 6 visits had been staying at the properties on the Boulevard Road on the banks of Dal Lake having stayed at the Comfort Inn, Hotel Malik, The Brown Palace, Hotel Heevan and the likes of them. This time I was looking for something different as I was visiting in the middle of Jan & hoping to see some snow. I had heard of reviews from friends who had stayed in different properties in Srinagar. Some had bad experiences & some good and it was becoming difficult to decided whether to go back to the tested ones or try & take a risk with a new one. My priorities are clear. It should be a big room with an attached wash-room preferably with a bathtub, western toilet and running hot & cold water. I don't care whether the room is carpeted or not, has an electric kettle or not and a big size LCD or not. The linen should be spotless white & so the wash-room absolutely clean. Like everyone else I started browsing the net looking for an altogether experience & like everyone I was not sure how actually the experience is going to be if I book and make the complete payment or a part payment online. I have had previous experiences where the Hotel looked like Taj Mahal on the net but in actual was a ruined Tughlaqabad Fort. After spending days on the net I zeroed in on Welcome Hotel which claimed lot of facilities of their property & a good nice decent picture of their but as stated earlier was not too sure if I should be going in there since had never ever stayed here in before but yes while crossing the city had seen this hotel many a times but never thought of checking it out. Not thinking much I booked it on line & I was at DEL Airport on 18th January 2015 waiting for my flight on Spicejet to SXR via IXJ. Landing in SXR found no Snow was a bit disappointing as there was a forecast. Mohd. Irshaad Khan, my driver of 15 years of trip was waiting at the arrival hall to pick me up. He asked me where I was up-to this time having exhausted most of the hotels in the city. Told him it was Welciome Hotel. He made a strange face and asked me " aur koi hotel nahin mila". I was zapped & thought " beta kaam ho gaya tera is baar". He offered me another good hotel but I was bent upon in checking out this hotel now. Bit nervous I arrived at the property. The exterior looked like exactly what it appeared on the net but I was more interested in value for money. I was received at the entrance by a smiling face which gave me a bit of a courage. Once inside I was met by Mr. Mansoor ( if I spell it correctly ) at the reception, who quickly finished off with the formalities. I must say it was the fastest I had experience it in the last one year. It removed my doubts further about the hotel. Soon I was there in my room on the second floor. All fears of going into an unknown zone proved wrong. It was a big room with a stunning view. The room was spacious, big windows, spotless white linen and a sparkling clean wash-room. I was thrilled. I took a trip of the hotel to see what all was there & I was floored to see such a neat and clean property, well crafted interiors, nicely dressed employees and on top of it very respectful and soft way of speaking. My fears about this property disappeared. Their restaurant is simply superb & serves amazing hot coffee. It was centrally heated & i was quite comfortable in my T-shirt with an outside temperature of 6 deg. Was hungry too so asked for what they served the best. It turned out to be " Mutton Yakhni". Its the second best Yakhni I had ever tasted the first being some years ago at Mughal Darbar, a famous family restaurant just 15mts drive in Auto from Nehru Park who would not charge you more than 50 rupees for a one way trip. It was time for some rest as the flight was a bit late. The mattress was quite warm & later I realised it had electric blanket under the bed-sheet to keep warm and kind of a massage on my back too. The big LCD was right there in front of me and I scrolled through what all channels were there. The room was centrally heated too & soon it became quite warm. Removed the curtains to have a look of the sprawling Dal Lake from the big windows that could be opened towards outside also. At most of the hotels I stayed I could not open the windows to have some fresh air and this was something unique in here. Every minute I was discovering something new & soon I knew I was staying at an awesome property where comfort & lots of privacy is of utmost priority. The corridors were clean and quite unlike other properties where people make lot of noise passing through. The best thing was yet to come. Their round the clock in-room dining service which was very quick. Soon I got into comparisons with the previous ones I had stayed in & realised this was the best place amongst the 3 starred ones I had ever stayed and was a great value for money too. It had given me what all I wanted to have in the room. Infact few things more than that. Housekeeping was the quickest ones to make up your room. Stepped out in the afternoon to have a shikara ride. A shikara stand was bang opposite the entrance to the property. Once in the Dal Lake I realised what a beautiful property I was staying in. It was quite close to a HDFC Bank ATM, Nathu Sweets, the only Wine Shop in Srinagar and neat & clean surrounding which gave it a very Swiss look . The hotel looked so beautiful in the night with all the lights shining in its full glory. Amongst the elite of the city come here to have dinner at its restaurant & quite popular amongst the young generation. I could see from my room window a swimming pool coming up next to the Restaurant. It would surely look great once its done. The staff at the front desk are awesome & they helped me with all my queries about some of my shopping interest. They have a hotel transport to take you around at much reasonable rates as compared to the city prices & have a property in Gulmarg too. You can book it from here also. Stayed here for 3 days & I must say I never felt I was coming into this property for the first time. I was alone & the hotel took really really good care of me. I would advise people going through the reviews to check this property.The hotel was everything what was displayed on the portal. Sometimes you have to trust your instincts too than listening to others if a particular property is good or bad or there is something better than what we have chosen.

Dal lake view was seen from the room. The hotel was located in a prime location. The interiors and furniture of the hotel were good. The room was well maintained with functioning amenities like TV and geyser. Activities were not provided at the hotel. Parking area was good. The food was very good. They should improve the services.

The location of the hotel is on the bank of the Dal lake which is the best thing about it. The rooms are spacious, cleaned and well serviced. They provide taxi service. They also have a branch at Gulmarg and the manager writes a letter to that hotel manager for you to get a decent discount.

The hotel is excellently situated at the bank of Dal Lake Srinagar. You can have a very good view of dal lake and house boats from your room. The reception and food quality is excellent specially if you are fond of non-veg food. Rooms are very good with warm air supplied in all the rooms with electric blankets in the bed to keep your beds warm.

The cab was hired to visit the hotel. Not faced any problem to reach the hotel and is conveniently located. The overall experience was good. Complimentary breakfast was not available. No delay in check in and check out. Food quality and taste was good. It was a family trip. Interior and exterior appearance of the hotel was old but well maintained. Staff members were co-operative. Services were good. Rooms were spacious and well-maintained with amenities like TV, geyser was available and were in working condition and Lake view was available from the room. Activities like swimming pool, camp-fire was not available in the hotel. Suggest maintaining the same rate card to all customers. The hotel is recommendable to other travellers.

Location is excellent in front of the lake, which is located close to railway station and bus stand. The staffs were quick in responding and the interior and exterior appearance of the hotel was average. The rooms were commodious, neat but not well maintained. The pillows and bed sheets were clean and hygienic. The amenities like TV were in working condition and there was a view from the room. The non-veg food provided by the hotel was tasty delicious and superb with many varieties. We enjoyed a lot at this hotel and no sightseeing was organised. I suggest this hotel for other travellers as it is value for money. This was a relaxation trip along with my family.
