Spacious rooms, nice location, cordial staff, soothing ambience - Hotel Ashai is a nice place to stay. Reaching Dal Gate from there takes only around 10 minutes via Autorickshaw, and basic amenities like medical shop, supermarket etc. are located at walking distance from the hotel. So, all in all, its a decent deal ! The food, though, was a little expensive and not that good.

A lovely property in an upscale residential neighborhood and a short walk from Lal Chowk (made shorter by a new pedestrian bridge to the NW). A wonderful garden for sitting and very comfortable rooms at an amazing value (I am saying this with 3 years of travel experience in India). Extremely friendly owners and staff. A true gem of a place.

Hello, I had visited Srinagar just last week with my parents who are senior citizens and therefore needed a place where they would be comfortable and feel at home. I was also particular that the accommodation is not cut off and easily reachable from the dal lake or lal chowk. By God's grace, I happened to come across this place and trusting my instinct booked it. We stayed there for 3 nights and 4 days and had booked two rooms in the first floor and it has been a once in a life time experience! There is absolutely nothing in that property which I wont recommend to travelers except perhaps in keeping with the soothing serenity of the place, the travelers need to be quiet and contemplative. First of all, it is a colonial heritage building with huge rooms with walnut wood furniture, electric blankets, round the clock hot water even when there is no power for which there is always generator running. The power situation is Srinagar is managed in such a way that each of the localities have to endure 2 to 3 hours of power cut daily. But in Ashai even in this off season, we never felt that as the generator was always promptly switched on. In fact we could not realize that power is not there! Secondly the bathrooms are spacious and very well maintained, with proper bath tubs and adequate supply of towels and toiletries. Thirdly, we stayed in the first floor which has four double bedrooms and a common lobby in between which is very elegantly decorated, where one can rest and read at leisure. Fourthly, unlike most of the hill stations, all the rooms are adequately lighted with proper lamps so that even in the evenings one does not feel lack of light in the room. Fifthly, if anyone feels the need to watch television, which I did not as when I was not out in Srinagar, I just sat in the room basking in the quietness, the television has tata sky. Sixthly, the lawn which is part of the property is beautiful dotted with daffodils, lotus, tulips, apply trees, walnut trees to name a few. One can pass innumerable afternoons post lunch just sitting on the swing and reading and looking at the flowers. Seventhly, the food is very tasty especially the mutton rogan josh is to die for. The added bonus is they prepare it how you wish to have it and is like homemade food. Now, coming from the material to the immaterial merits of Ashai. What marks out this place from other standard hotels is its non-commercial character. To the sensitive traveler, this place would ooze affection as all the staff--Abbas Bhai, Nadeem Bhai, Shafiq Bhai and the manager Mr, Geelani with their genuine, unstinting concern for all the boarders, make this truly a home away from home. The daily presence of the owner octogenarian Mr. Anwar Ashai with whom I had the honour and absolute privilege to interact and converse on days when he used to drop in his hotel to supervise and tend to the apple trees in the orchard is a memory I would cherish forever. Being an engineer and an old citizen of Kashmir, he is an authority on the place and for an academician like me with history as my discipline, an absolute delight to interact with. His extremely warm and erudite presence adds added sheen to the place. May God grace him and his family with health and happiness always! I cannot also forget how Mr. Geelani was so thoughtful to call me up in Calcutta to enquire whether we have all reached safely. My parents were deeply touched by this gesture.He is a true gentleman always attentive to the needs of the boarders. In one word, Ashai represents true Kashmiriyaat! Whenever I visit Srinagar next, I would definitely ensure that I stay here. Thank you, S.Chakraborty Kolkata (stayed in Ashai between 21st to 24th march 2018)

The hotel is quiet close from the tourist center. The hotel staffs are awesome and its quiet big with a nice garden to relax, the only thing missing was flush toilets need a water spray jet or toilet tissues. From the environmental perspective, I would go for water spray jet and bathrooms can be little tidy since I stayed there twice it can be maintained better for such room price.
