Sri Kant Dua - Antilog Vacations Srinagar Review AVB0096596
Last month I visited Srinagar with 5 of my friends. It was a college trip and as time was at a premium we decided to pre book our travel. Antilog Vacations helped us immensely in selecting the hotel which matched our requirements and finally the Blooming Dale Hotel Cottages was selected as our stay there. The tariff was quite low compared to some of the others on offer and we immediately confirmed the resort.
We took a direct bus to Srinagar from Delhi and it took us around 25 hours to reach there. As expected we were quite tired due to the tedious bus journey and wanted to crash as soon as we arrived. Located near the Dalgate in the Buchwara area, the hotel gave us an inkling of a guest house from the outside but the interiors were decent. The staff was really helpful and helped us to our suite pretty quickly. Though the linen looked slightly soiled we did not ask them to replace the same that day as we were too tired.
The next day they replaced the bed sheet and towels and we found that it was a niche property having just 4 or 5 rooms but it was well maintained. The crew is headed by one – Mr. Firdous, who is a very glib talker but he is also quite kind and helpful.
As we were mostly inclined in local sight-seeing, we asked him to co-ordinate with the local cabbies and book a budget deal for us. He booked a Sumo and the cabbie covered all popular areas along with less trodden sites like the Ziarati Hazrati Youza Asouph and the Shankaracharya Mandir.
Thus based on our experience, the Blooming Dale Hotel Cottages offered us a homely package amidst the biggest plus of the modest tariff it charged. Overall, it’s a part of great deal from the end of Antilog Vacations.
