If Kashmir is paradise on earth than Pahalgam is its most blissful abode

One of the reasons for our statement is the location, atmosphere & service experienced by me and my family at the Himalaya House Pahalgam

On our way from Srinagar and driving for around 7 minutes after crossing the main Pahalgam town the driver turned into a very thin lane and stopped outside an old building façade which said Himalaya House. The compound-less tiny entrance seemed a bit disappointing.

Never judge a book by its cover we realized because on crossing the threshold we were pleasantly surprised as it opened into a massive space with the entire hotel complex in the background, a huge garden area and a stream running thru the property.

Mr. Iqbal the senior manager was there to personally greet us. A jovial & jolly man whose perpetual laughter could make any mood lighter. It was this comforting attitude of his during the pre-visit telephone calls that was entirely responsible for us opting for this hotel.

On touring the complex we were amazed at the 360’ view of the snow clad mountains clear blue skies and the Lidder River running at the end of the open grounds. The same view was even visible from our log cabin styled spacious and clean room.

They have even built a deck on the river to enable one to sip their tea or coffee with only the sound of the water and the silence of nature

Along with the personal attention of Mr. Iqbal, the housekeeping & room service team of Mr. Rasool and his boys were extremely prompt and helpful . Even the
Wi-Fi indoors & outdoors was not a problem and electric blankets under the bed were already arranged. The Chef was very obliging with the food being a bit spicy but very tasty.

Away from the commercial hustle bustle of Gulmurg this was so unbelievably beautiful and peaceful that we decided to stay an additional day just to enjoy the unreal.

Nothing is perfect. So travellers during their limited stay rather than looking for flaws should just enjoy the fleeting moments of near perfect bliss at this unique property to treasure as memories.

Would definitely recommend this property to one & all and most surely take a trip specially to Pahalgam just to stay at this Hotel.

We visited Pahalgam while on pilgrimage to the holy Amarnath Cave and spent several days resting before and after our pilgrimage at the wonderful Hotel Himalaya House. The location and view is spectacular, being nestled in the hills with views of snow-caped mountains, on the bank of the Lider river. Our room was spacious, clean, very comfortable, and with views of the mountains and the beautiful hotel gardens. All members of the staff where attentive, responsive, polite, and professional. We spent quite a bit of time speaking with them about life in Kashmir, Pahalgam, and the many important sites in the area. The food was incredible, serving both pan-Indian dishes as well as Kashmiri specialties. We congratulate the owner Gulzar for the amazing Himalayan retreat he has created and curates. He and his staff went out of their way to be helpful to us.

I live the US, and I look forward to spending more time at Himalayan House during our next visit to Kashmir.

This is the worst hotel I have ever seen. Do not have wash basin in bathroom. Room is so small that you can not move around bed. Bathroom stinks. They make false promises to change room. Mohammad from front staff made us promise that they will change room and at last they said rooms are not available.

Our stay at this hotel in pehalgam was amazing..we enjoyed to fullest ..in matter of cleanliness and hospitality they shud get 5 stars.. buffet breakfast can be improved in variety ..though it was awesome in quality. The deck they provide in proximity to beautiful lidder river is the hallmark of this destination .they can improve in terms of providing hairdryer and ironing facilities in room as one almost never carries these in national and international trips !!..Overall i shud say it was extremely worthwhile to opt for this hotel..

Our family wished to visit this property in May 2015. and thus I wrote to them stating our requirement and dates and schedule in the 1st week of Feb 2015 (3 months prior to our visit dates). They sent me a mail with room quotes and we confirmed 3 super delux rooms for 2 nights. Firstly they are not prompt in replying to a mail (be it an enquiry or confirmation mail)
After a lot of reminders they mailed us telling us to mail them in the 1st week of march and they will confirm our reservation and we needed to RTGS a said amount. All was fine till then (frustrating but still fine)
Just a couple of days back (March 5th) I mailed them reminding them of our requirement and the chain of communication that had already been sent out.
We get a reply stating in just 1 line- " All our rooms are booked till July end- thanks"
Thats all!!! I was furious as i had contacted them in feb 1st week requesting a reservation and at that time rooms were available.
When i spoke to a person there- Mr Hassan Hakeem- his attitude was absolutely pathetic.
He tells me I had a bulk booking so I gave it to Makemytrip. When i reminded him of our conversation and emails- and the fact that he shouldve confirmed my booking in Feb itself, He has the audacity to tell me that "Listen, Why are you forcing me to give you a room when im not interested to!!"
The conversation went on for another 20 mins as I was livid- I had made all my travel arrangements and couldn't change that. He told me that its more profitable for him to give it to makemytrip for the entire season and he wasnt interested in small bookings of 3 rooms over 2 nights. He had no respect for the customer and was arrogant to say the least.

I told him i was going to write about this experience on travel sites to inform travelers of this attitude of his. he says "do what you want I do not care- we will not give you the rooms"

This hotel and its management have absolutely no care for the customer. their pathetic attitude towards us should be shared and spoken off in travel forums till a time comes when they realise that " You ought to honour your commitment and reservation" They can not just ignore a "small" booking or cancel it just because they have a larger booking elsewhere.

I wouldn't recommend this hotel to anyone. Do not stay here, if the management is so arrogant to its customers Before the stay imagine the quality of service you will receive During your stay.
