Best Stay in Srinagar


If you are travelling with a family or as a couple, Hotel Dar-es-Salam is the place to stay in Srinagar. I have been to two other 5 star Hotels, which are good, but they do not match the ambience, the location, the excellent service and value for money that this Hotel provides. I use make my trip a lot for my travel and honestly I would recommend this hotel to anyone who wants to discover the feeling of staying at a resort hotel.

Staff were friendly ; recommendable hotel


Fantastic property. Had the privilege of visiting both in the summer and winter. The view of the lake and the mountain range beyond is breathtaking. Hotel Daressalaam is like a home away from home. Staff is extremely friendly and nice and the food is the best you can get in Srinagar. Highly recommend this little gem, try Kashmir food and enjoy the place with your family.

Comfortable rooms with excellent ambience


The best place to stay in Srinagar is Daressalaam Hotel. This is a boutique hotel, calm and serene, located on the banks of Nagin Lake. The view is breathtaking and one can see the snow clad mountains. The hotel has a beautiful garden filled with tulips, daffodils etc. Rooms are very comfortable and the ambience is excellent. The staff are very friendly and food is very good. It is not very expensive but booking has to be done well in advance. One can take a Shikara ride in the lake which is much cleaner and less crowded than the Dale lake. Small shopping like fashion jewellery and flower seeds can be done for reasonable prices from the shikaras. But one has to bargain. It is a wonderful place to relax and enjoy the scenery.

No activity, average staff and service


Hotel was good. There was a little problem in finding the hotel. Bus stand was at walking distance from the hotel. I stayed there for 8 days. Per day tariff for the room was Rs. 3500. Behaviour of the staff was medium. There was little problem with the room service. It was not clean as it must be. It was not according to the rent. No problem in check in and check out. View was not visible from the room. It was newly built hotel. No activity was there. I had food there. Both veg and non-veg food there. It was okay. Parking facility was available there. Car was booked by the tourist people. Activity must be there. Swimming pool should be there. Srinagar as a destination is good. Hotel's location was average. Appearance wise, it was good. Overall, service was average. Room was below average. Food was average.

Well equipped rooms with nice facilities


After Coming from All the destinations which included one of the best hotels at each place we ( couples with Kids spent a night at Dar Es Salaam. My friend who was with us throughout the trip wasn't convinced about Dar Es Salaam ( before we reached and wanted to check in at Lalit as he always want to stay in best. At night when we reached Dar Es Salaam from the entrance it looked as if its a small Hotel and we have made bad deal staying here. But the fun began when we checked in and saw our rooms which were very well equipped and had all Basic amenities which one would require to stay comfortably.

Overall nice stay


The location of the hotel was stunning and the ambiance inside was overwhelming. Rooms were neat and clean and the service was excellent. The pains taken by the owner to maintained the hotel as well as his personal attention to details makes your stay enjoyable. Would strongly recommend for a family.

Spacious rooms which gives you royal feeling


It was really a pleasure to have a stay in Daar-e-slam, would recommend everyone to at least experience it once. Rooms were spacious and give a royal feeling. Garden is sumptuous . What to say about the room service. I would simply say it was awesome. If you are planning for Kashmir please make sure that you plan for Daar-e-slam.

Recommendable proprety


Everything was good there but food was average. There was Wi-Fi, coffee maker, tea maker, fan, room heater, etc. facility available. Rooms were very good. Whatever we ordered, we got that immediately. The location of hotel was nice. Look wise, hotel is best. Booking, front office, and reception service was perfect. Services were excellent there. There was no outdoor activity available. Srinagar is a best place. Hotel is very recommendable. I went there in May 2013.
