No one to attend ..dirty toilets..door locks not in place..and no one to be seen at check out time too! We had to keep looking for that one single attendee on the boat! Not his fault though..the...

we stayed dere for 1 night in feb 2014. It was a great experience. Owner Zahoor is a nice person. Rooms were quiet good. Heating arrangements were excellent to accomodate the chilling weather of Kashmir. Food,although spicy a bit, was gud. You need to go by shikara which in itself is a gud experience. On the whole, an excellent stay.

I went there through makemytrip.com at Dalgoma houseboat provided by persian group. Rooms were like toilets. There was not even simple water to drink. When we asked for water they got one jug for three rooms and water was so smelly we couldn't drink that. The attitude of the owner of houseboat was so horrible. When we reached back to... More

I spent 3 lovely nights there, facing the city and the moutains on the other side of the lake, I enjoyed the peacefulness as well as the quiet scene of the passing boats. The family is lovely and very helpful, and the boats very comfortables.

I checked over ten houseboats during my august trip before I found The Persian Palace. The facilities, rooms and beds are all deluxe-class and clean with reasonable prices. The look and traditional decoration of the boat is a reason in itself to stay. I ate lunch and diner with the family in their beautiful kitchen. There wasn't any hidden charges,... More

My wife and I had been travelling for 6 months and we were, frankly, exhausted. India is not easy backpacking and our nerves were more that a little frayed. Then we stumbled upon the Persian Palace and our stress fell away immediately. Zahoor, the owner, is considerate and, more importantly, absolutely trustworthy. His advice is based on what you want...
