Somewhat rundown hotel on The Boulevard. Facing a line of houseboats and constant auto traffic the hotel is centrally placed, near restaurants, shikara access to Lake Dal, and the availability of taxis to all sites in and around Srinagar.
Cleaning looks marginal, sheets uncertain based on smell and eyeball test, bed made to suit the maid not the sleeper.
Shower water hot, water pressure good. But the wall that is in the way of spray has electrical fixtures. There is at least one bare electrical connection in the room. Water collects over the whole (small) bathroom floor before draining at the opposite corner. My room was right above the entry just off a noisy street. There was little noise from the lobby and closing the window and the drapes limited the lights and noise from the street. Great view of the houseboats 100 meters or so away.
The cable package is poor. There is no wifi. My room was a single and possibly the worst in the house so it may not represent the overall quality. The front desk was friendly and helpful. I ate dinner at Shamyana Restaurant nearby. Food was good but pricey for Kashmir. I also bought half a kilo of a variety of burfies at Nathu's Sweets, right near the ATM, and they were very good.
