Very reasonable quality-price relation, for a well located, clean, guest house with a great cook. The owner and his staff were most kind and arranging excursions and solving whatever problems we had. They were also attentive at us not getting lost given the ongoing situation in kashmir, which I´ll say is more peaceful than depicted.

Considering the cost, location / comfort / facilities everything was just perfect. But there are some non-commercial ‘things’ in this... More

We were very fortunate to be the guests of Sarwar at JH Bazaz. Sarwar welcomed us despite our unexpected arrival (our online reservation was not received due to the internet outage in Kashmir) and made every effort to ensure our comfort and safety during our visit. He arranged reliable and trustworthy drivers for our trips around the city as well... More

Mr. Hussain Sarwar is an amazing person. He made our stay very comfortable. He personally looked after every small detail to make us at ease. He has a very rich knowledge about different travel destinations across Kashmir and history. Every morning and evening, we would look forward for long chats with him and his father.

The place is very easy to locate and most people knew where it was. The location is ideal to visit most places around srinagar, be it dal lake shikara ride/pari mahal or other gardens/shopping.
