"An amazing experience & a great stay"

6.7/7
Posted 2 years ago

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.

"Excellent location & worth for money"

5.8/7
Posted 1 year ago

The location of the hotel is excellent, just opposite to Dal Lake. The surrounding is good. You can find the good restaurant near the hotel. The rooms are clean and spacious. The service is average. The food quality is good. Most of the rooms are lake facing. The view of Dal lake from the room is amazing. Worth for money to stay at the hotel.

This hotel is situated right in front of Dal lake at boulevard road. The hotel itself is very nice! The entrance, reception and lobby makes you feel as if you're in some royal place! Its very aesthetically done! Every corner is picture perfect. Rooms are cosy and clean as well. Service and staff were quick! Its also very close to nathu sweets and other restaurants. Totally worth the money! Would recommend it to everyone.
