Beautiful carvings, best hospitality and great room to stay. Overall a very different experience for living on water and location is also fantastic. Meals are tasty although just veg. I would recommend this place for stay in summers.

One important thing while choosing a house boat in Dal lake is that it should have a gud distance from the road so that you have a good view of the lake from the house boat. Alexandra Houseboats do offer you a spectacular view of the lake. It is located in the middle of the row of house boats and... More

Nice houseboat with an ethnic look and did review other traveler experience, which is same even today. Bad salty food. Room seemed large, look elegant in style but nothing which one could fancy about here. One should not have too much expectations here.

I had stayed in Houseboat for the first time during my honeymoon trip. I was expecting it to be better than what I actually experienced. Food was not good at all. And the room was ok. Fan was running very slow and we had asked to arrange for a table fan, which was arranged for us. The room was very... More

Stayed for a night and an amazing experience in the houseboat. It was clean and very good interiors. Room was spacious and bathroom was good but keep in mind not to spill water on the floors. You do not have choice over dinner and breakfast and it was pretty simple as good as home made food. Mr Tariq was very... More
