Reviewed 11 April 2012

I am staying at lalit right now and the staff is least bit cooperative. Was asked to come by 12 30 so that the room is ready by then. But they asked me to come back at 2. Anyways I would agree it takes time to clean the room. But seeing that it's been raining cats and dogs outside, still they asked me to go out and look around. There was not a sign of apology or courtesy for us.

I am highly disappointed with the response of the reception staff and will never recommend others to ever stay at this hotel.

The Lalit is an absolutely amazing hotel. The lawns are prettier than the famous baghs of Srinagar, the location is just on the Dal Lake, the facilities are awesome (tennis, cycling, table tennis, billiards, swimming pool etc etc), but the best thing is the service. From the time you enter, you are looked after really really well by the very well trained staff. I stayed with my wife and kids and all of us were delighted. Certainly one of the finest hotels to stay in.

Room Tip: Rooms on the ground floor have a lovely sit out area.

We were 15 people in a group including kids. The stay in Lalit was like living in a paradise on earth. The comfortable and cozy enviornment of hotel added flavour to the beauty of Kashmir.The beauty of Kashmir is beyond description and Hotel Lalit adds much more to it.The food and hospitality was very very good.

This is the former palace of the Maharajah of Kashmir and it makes you feel like you're in one every minute that you spend in it. The rooms are not spectacular, but, this place has a charm like none other. The mahogany, the smells and the carpets tell a story of the glorious past that this palace has experienced. The gardens and lawns are fit to suit a maharajah. The view from the verandah is of the dahl lake and the fort of srinagar since the hotel is on a hilltop over looking the two. The sunrise and sunset are a spectacle. If you go to Srinagar this is the ONLY place to stay. It has been one of my most memorable experiences. A note of caution though since this is a very upscale and popular hotel most of the VIP's stay here during their visits to Kashmir. This implies that since they are high value targets that you should be ready to be surrounded by gun wielding commandos. Personally, I felt much more secure with so many of them being around and it in no way overshadows the beauty of this hotel palace.

Room Tip: Practically all rooms have the same view. Upper floors slightly better.
