“Kashmir in April”
Reviewed 26 April 2012

During my recent trip to Kashmir, we stayed at Srinagar, Pahalgam as well as Gulmarg in the Heevan properties. The Pahalgam hotel is located away from the town (but easy walking distance) and besides the river. Good view of the river & snow capped mountains from the rooms. Perfectly heated rooms and electric blankets kept us nice and warm. Room service was prompt. The staff at the restaurant were not very cooperative initially (maybe due to less occupancy in the hotel) but the day we were leaving they were extra courteous, for obvious reasons.

Food was just okay. Hotel was hesitant to accept credit card for food bills, but when insisted they accepted. Unfortunately traditional Kashmiri cuisine did not feature in the menu. One has to place an order 24 hrs earlier to get them, which is absurd.

While taking horse riding trip to Baisaran valley (horses are available right outside the hotel), it is advisable to take the longer road route (more expensive and time consuming, but easier and more enjoyable horse ride) unless you are up for some very anxious moments riding vertically up or down the unmarked steep short cuts that the horse takes. If weather is good, its a good days walking trip.

Room Tip: Ask for the river facing rooms. Traditional Kashmiri cuisine has to be ordered 1 day in advance.

We stayed in this hotel during the first week of April. The water both at bath place and at restaurant was turbid. When asked, I was informed that it is safe. My son refused to take bath as I could not convince him that "this" water would clean him! may be that they simply pump from Lidder river, without filtering or processing to remove the suspended particulates. Add more owes, we had moderate rain and colour of supplied water changed with the turbidity of theLidder river. As observed in one of the reviews,I had warm-cold situation during the night. They switch off the room heater by 11 pm. While bed-heater warms you up to the nceck, the face is getting chilled. When asked I was informed that, same "boiler(?)'" is used for the room heater and for serving warm (& turbid) water at bath room. This not the solution. Food was horrible. They have to go a long length in improving the standard of the food. Heevans @ Pahalgam are you listening?

It was wonderful experience at Hotel Heevan during our visit in the first week of April. It is in deed 'PAISA VASOOL' and the location and view of the hotel is one of the best in Pahalgam. Should stay at Hotel Heevan during the visit to Pahalgam. Restaurant staff was so co-operative, we were feeling like at home... Too good..

hotel heevan!!! beautiful hotel to stay in pahalgam amidst nature...located on the river bank, facing the snow mountains,its the best location to stay n spend time with nature listening to the flow of the river water, the birds chirping around and breathtaking view of the snowcapped mountains at sunrise..the walk to the hotel on the wooden bridge across the river is just different..
the staff of the hotel is very friendly and cooperative...their warm hospitality did touch us!and il not forget to mention their cuisine...had delicious food there...
overall had a very good time there...

Room Tip: the rooms on the ground floor are really worth!

Its a quaint 3 storied wooden structure on the banks of the lidder river. And the Locations IS TRULY heavenly. The river gurgles past and the sound reverberates throughout the day (and night). So if you're not the kind of likes this sound, stay away. \
There is a small wooden bridge which connects the road and parking lot with the hotel. picturesque. A beautiful garden right on the banks, very very beautiful. And a coffee shop one level below which is literally on the level of the river.
The rooms are very mediocre however. The maintenance almost non-existent, and the food takes a long time to come especially off season. The structure appears old, though sturdy. The bath's clean and does have a tub.
All in all the stupendous and breath taking location really does make up for everything else.

Room Tip: Choose only the river facing room, else there's no point in choosing this hotel
