Shah Abbas Hotel on boulevard road in Srinagar offers you a breathtaking view of Dal Lake.
With Shankaracharya Hill in its backdrop, the location is simply superb.
The market nearby would has shops which sell Kashmiri art and handicrafts - a souvenir from the valley, a tourist must take on his way back.
The food is fantastic, with varied choice for veg and non-veg lovers alike - Kashmiri cuisine would surely make your taste buds tickle, and Kehwa (the sweet herbal brew) would calm your mind and make you think that the place is definitely a paradise on earth.

  • Liked — The view of Dal Lake and its location - all tourist spots are easily accessible from where this hotel is located
  • Disliked — The rooms were very cozy

I pre-booked this hotel and stayed for five nights. The room was nice and big with a fantastic view over the houseboats on Dal Lake. However the bathroom was third world and was really filthy. The dirt was encased on the walls and it looked like it had never been cleaned properly. When I arrived there was a massive dirty industrial looking bucket in the bath. The taps on the sink were falling off. For the five nights that I was there my towels were never changed and when I asked for fresh ones at the desk, the staff looked at me as if I was crazy. The shower was erratic, while i was there it came on twice by itself and flooded the bathroom.

The staff were very pleasant at all times. However one of the staff members was very inappropriate and knocked at my door late in the evening insisting that I look at his face and beckoning me to lean close to him. As a female I felt very threatened by this inappropriate behaviour and was thankful that the door could be bolted securely from the inside of the hotel room for safety. (European women are not safe in Kashmir and I felt threatened daily and had inappropriate advances made daily - very frightening).

The food in the hotel was lovely however there was a very peculiar smell in the restaurant. (I think this might have been leaking gas from the ovens). One morning the restaurant was closed and a staffmember served me my breakfast in my room which was on the third floor. I could smell a really strong overpowering smell of gas but the staffmember laughed this off when I asked if perhaps the hotel should be evacuated.

Later when I met with colleagues from Srinagar, I was very surprised to learn that this was considered one of the better hotels in Srinagar. I would give this hotel an overall rating of three out of five. The room itself was great with a great view but the bathroom and smell in the hotel was appalling.

We had been to Srinagar in May 09 and stayed in Shah Abbas hotel for 2 nights. The hotel room are clean and comfy. It offers good view of Dal lake and houseboats.

Near to Market and shopping. The room is comfortable big and service is good. We enjoyed our stay at the hotel.
