To be honest I am not really sure how to write this review. I mean I know what to write; but I am not sure whether I should write while giving an overall positive feel; or if I should make it sound all negative. There is a part of me that wants to make it appear as bad as possible; but then another side of me says that it wouldn't be fair. So I will just mention the proceedings as they happened. It is more like an account of what we went through; and I will let the reader decide themselves how to take it. I really do not want to pass a verdict about this hotel. I don't want to claim it as the best place to stay but at the same time, it wasn't all that bad either. Kaka Palace is a hotel located in Dawar town of Gurez Valley. It is run by a family that lives right next door and the owner is a gentleman called Younis Khan. Actually it wouldn't be wrong to say that it is the only hotel in Gurez Valley. The other two that I noticed were still under construction; and looked far less in quality than Kaka Palace. Third choice would be the J&K Tourism Dak Bungalow but it was closed when we reached its gates. My guess is that you too are going to find it shut for reasons that I will mention further in the article.
