City gets new tourist address: Hotel Mumtaz Towers thrown open
Srinagar, May 2: Giving a new ‘tourist address’ to this city, Mumtaz Group of Hotels Wednesday threw open Hotel Mumtaz Towers in state-of-the-art Sarah City Complex, here.
Spiralling over an area of 27000 square feet in the sixth floor of the trendy mall, the hotel is the first of its kind in the Valley.
The hotel with 35 rooms and a restaurant is a new addition to the group’s chain of hotels at different spots in the Valley and outside with the most famous one being Hotel Grand Mumtaz at M. A. Road here.
Noted hotelier and Managing Director, Hotel Grand Mumtaz, Mushtaq Ahmad Chaya told Greater Kashmir that this hotel was one of his dream projects.
“It was one of my ambitious projects to start my hotel at Lal Chowk area, which is the hub of the business in Srinagar. I think tourists will prefer stay in this hotel as it is centrally located,” Chaya said, adding that on first day of functioning of the hotel today 80 per cent of the rooms were occupied and “from tomorrow we have bookings for all rooms.”
“Besides, every room has got all the facilities that tourists will require. We have constructed terraces adjacent to rooms so that the tourists can get picturesque view of the city during day and night,” he said.
The hotel is fully air-conditioned. “We have installed VRV AC system which is for the first time being used by any hotel in the Valley. Our aim is to provide the best facilities to our customers and so far thank God we have been successful in fulfilling our promises.”
To mention, Chaya is also the owner of Sarah City Centre: a state-of-the-art Mall in the city. “It took us many years to construct the Mall and we have tried to make this Shopping Centre as one of the best Malls in our state. We have taken proper care of designing, “Mushtaq said.
“In Srinagar city there are plenty of shopping centres, but hardly any one among them has the proper parking space. But we have designed our Mall in such a way that there is ample space available for parking of vehicles,” he said, adding that “we have also installed escalators for the convenience of customers and there is also lift available for travellers to move from one floor to another.”
Customers visiting the centre expressed their happiness over the parking space and “environment for shopping.”
“While shopping in malls in Srinagar we face the problem of parking. But here in Sarah City Centre there is no such issue as they have specially designed parking space in basement,” Ajaz Ahmad, a customer said.
The Mall also houses showrooms of leading brands like Puma, Mufti, Polo and many more.
