Over 30 years ago we lived in Srinagar, Kashmir. We lived near Nishat Gardens for 15 years studying the ancient philosophy of Kashmir Shaivism with Swami Lakshmanjoo. We had many fond memories of past times living in Kashmir.
My wife and I had reservations for 5 nights at the Hotel Dar-Es-Salam in July 2016.This was during the time when the curfew and fighting had just begun. We arrived at the hotel at 6 am and were warmly greeted by Imtiaz and Rafiq. They made our stay for the full duration very comfortable and calmed our concerns for safety. Although we were the only guests there they prepared the most delicious vegetarian Kashmiri food for every meal. They were also very interesting to talk to and gave attention to whatever we needed. They made our stay memorable and it was a wonderful way to spend our wedding anniversary during those difficult times.
One more thing to add is that the Guest house is well maintained with beautiful, immaculate and comfortable rooms. The gardens are beautifully manicured situated next to Nageen Lake with a very high wall surrounding it.
