    Our family is planning a holiday to Srinagar this year in June and we need some help in finding a good 3-star hotel. I have looked at some 4-star hotels and because it is the peak season they are a bit overpriced, so it would best for us to consider a 3 star.

    Please, can I get some suggestions for 3 star hotels in Srinagar which do not exceed Rs2500 per night.

    Overview

    Never have beauty been immortalized more than as it has been in Srinagar. With the distant snow-capped mountains as its backdrop, the Dal Lake as its main star and its gardens mesmerizing in their various hues, it's no wonder why the city has become a much dreamed about destination. The city is also filled with religious and heritage sites that are worth exploring. In the recent years, Srinagar has been in an ever growing phase, whereby it is moderately keeping up with the modern era. It still has that slow-paced way of life, more evident in the local's lives, but you would still be able to find tourist infrastructures to make your stay more comfortable. In this guide, we would highlight the best three-star hotels in Srinagar, for those planning on a trip here with a limited budget.

    Best Three-Star Hotels in Srinagar (Under Rs. 2,500/Night)

    1. Hotel Kaisar - First up, we have Hotel Kaisar, which is located to the south of Srinagar, around 12 kilometers away from the Dal Lake. The nearest attraction is the Sri Pratap Singh Museum, under two kilometers away from the hotel. The advantage of its location is that it is far away from the chaotic city centre but not too isolated. You can easily get an auto rickshaw to reach the major attractions of the city from the property. This simple hotel has a white facade, its main building interspersed amidst a number of commercial shops. Again, rooms are pretty basic and simple, though spacious and comfortable. The interiors are very homely, not at all opulent, resembling that of the local homes easily. Their Deluxe Room is the most affordable and fits well within your budget. The on-site restaurant serves Indian vegetarian dishes, but with a very limited menu. As an alternative, Hatrick is just a minute of walking away from the hotel and is a well-known chain for serving traditional Kashmiri dishes. Facilities available in the hotel are parking, business center and travel desk. There is no lift facility so that's one downside although staff do help to carry guest's luggages to the upper floors.
    • Room Rates - Deluxe Room at Rs. 2,287/Night (Via Oyo Rooms, Inclusive of Taxes)
    • Room Amenities - Television, Kettle, Sitting Area, Closet, Telephone and Attached Bathroom

    2. Hotel New Prince Inn - Next we have the Hotel New Prince Inn, just a short 15-minute walk to the Dal Lake. The Hari Parbat Fort is also just under four kilometers away from the hotel. The property has the same white facade with brown accents. The interiors are subtle with a touch of traditionalism. You can choose from either their Deluxe Room or Family Suite, both are under your preferred budget. The only difference is the space as the latter has more of it, so if you're a family, then choose this option. Rooms and suites have dated interiors but are well maintained. Even the bathrooms are basic but the good thing is that they aren't cramped for space. The home-cooked vegetarian meals in the on-site restaurant would render one speechless. But for the non-vegetarians, no worries, because there are some dining options within walking distance from the hotel like Red Chillies and Momos & More. The hotel has a travel desk where you can inquire about sightseeing trips or even request for a shikhara ride from. Other facilities such as a business center, parking, banquet hall, shuttle transfers and shops can also be found inside.
