The story of how I got in touch with Brown Palace starts a few years back. When I first went to Mcleodganj in 2015, I had a short stay at Pink House. This is where I met Mr. Javed, who runs Pink House, and made his acquaintance. He is from Kashmir and mentioned to reach out to him in case I was ever travelling there. And that's what I did and Brown Palace was the 1st Hotel I booked for this trip. Brown Palace is run by Javed's cousin Ibrahim who is a equally hospitable host. Brown Palace is located 2.5Km from Pahalgam, amidst the calmness of Laripora. Hotel is next to the road and Lidder river flows next to the other side of the road. The scenery around is beautiful, you can see snowcapped mountains up close and vast beauty of the valley. The village around is also quaint and loved having a stroll in it. The hotel itself has all amenities and I wish I could have stayed a couple of more days just to absorb the environment around us.

Mr. Ibrahim is the Highlight of the Place. Brown palace has a long history of Foreign trekkers which you can clearly see in the visitor books placed at the reception. This is the best place in pahalgam if you are planning for your treks in the vicinity as Mr. Ibrahim has immense knowledge and Experience since a long time. Even if you are here for leisure you will fall in love with the river flowing near the place, Morning Chirping of Birds, Cozy Rooms and Hospitality of Mr. Ibrahim. Looking forward to visit in Summer.

The moment I looked at the pictures of this place on internet, I knew it was not the usual hotel/lodge you stay everyday. It was almost evening when we reached Brown Palace to be welcomed by Ibrahim Ji & his staff Nasir. We were served Kahwah & cookies even before we went to our room; and there was no mention of free welcome drink on any website (this is what going the extra mile means). The room & its view was breathtakingly beautiful & we had no wish to leave the room. But Ibrahim ji forced us to go with Nasir for a walk in the village & to the golf course and when we did that we had one of the best experiences in Kashmir. From that moment I knew I did not come to a hotel, I came to another home of mine. Starting from that very moment till the last, every second with Brown Palace & the wonderful people over there have been special for us. It won’t be wrong if I tell that I feel in love with Kashmir & its people & a major chunk of this feeling is due to Ibrahim Ji & Brown Palace. Can’t wait to be back again

Pros: 1. Hospitality. Ibrahim ji did a great job to ensure we feel like home. Even the caretakers were warm and helpful. 2. The location is amazing. Lidder river flows right in front of the property. There are small villages nearby where you can roam around. Not touristy at all. 3. Food is tasty and homely. 4. The property is great. It has seen travellers from 1980s and has stories and photos on the walls. There's a nice garden, a fire-place, multiple sitting areas. When I visit Pahalgam, I'm sure this is where I'll put up. Cons: 1. Electricity and phone's network are still issues in Pahalgam. So, be informed before visiting Pahalgam. Though, Brown Palace has both power back-up and Wi-Fi.

Our stay at Brown Palace was nothing short of wonderful. It a simple homestay with amazing hospitality. Ibrahim ji takes it upon himself to make his guests feel at home. On nights with no electricity, he arranged hot water bags and extra blankets for us. Also, a special mention to the food that was very homely and yet delectable. Looking forward to visiting Brown Palace again.
