“Pleasing stay”
Reviewed 16 April 2012

Pleasing (much better than “nice”, and the view of Dal lake is majestic, eye catching, scenery that is kiiling instinct

Room Tip: TAKE TOP ROOF ROOM to watch dal lake view

Srinagar reminds of Dal lake, floating Shikaras in the lake…picturesque mountain ranges (mostly White peaks) and number of Gardens. Amidst the beautiful Srinagar, we have stayed in Hotel Heemal (a JKTDC property). A grand property situated in Boulevard road, just opposite the famous Dal Lake and very near to market (~2 kms).
The property is one of the best in Srinagar with all the rooms facing Dal lake with a huge lawn and ample parking space. Everything is in close proximity to the hotel. Even the hotel compound have 3 foreign liquor shop (entire Kashmir I believe has only 4 such shops).
Getting back to the facilities of the Hotel, we were 5 adults and 2 kids and have taken Room No 109 (Executive Room) and 109A (Deluxe Suite). Both the rooms were huge in size. The deluxe room consists of 1 balcony, 1 large size Sitting room and 1 Bed Room, the bed room was fitted with LCD TV. The Executive Room also has a LCD TV with a large balcony shared with Suite. Till this everything is fine. The problem starts when you demand some basic facilities, like LCD TV was there but no connection was available (though they have Dish TV connection, but unfortunately subscription payment was not done). Bedrolls were dirty and have stain marks. Maintenance was bad (it’s Pathetic). Food was horrid…with no options available. Room Service staff was co-operative.
If the same property has been maintained by some private hotel operator, this could be one of the most sort after property in Srinagar.
Overall not worth the money they charged for the room. I have paid INR 5000 for Deluxe Suite and INR 4500 for the Executive Rooms. Lot of good option available in the near vicinity of the hotel with similar or better view of the Dal Lake.

Room Tip: Room No. 109A if you are travelling with Kids and want to stay like a king

It's an amazing hotel at the face of the Dal Lake...The service is amazing and the food provided is also nice...Best thing about the hotel is all the rooms are having face on Dal Lake...It is also located at secured place and having high security at the place...in short it's nice place to stay...

Room Tip: Any room will give same kind of View..
