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

We stayed here for 3 nights... So, if you want dinner make sure they are informed in the morning or else you will have to sleep with empty stomach... They have a bath tub, you need to be careful while using the washroom, as the water on bathroom floor is prohibited... Keep your slippers outside the houseboat... You will have... More

We stayed in this houseboat for two days on 19/11/2012 & 20/11/2012. The house boat is very clean and confortable. The chimney is main attraction of this boat in winter which is available in main room. Kadarbhai service is very very good. This is memorable experience staying in this houseboat.

We stayed on the New Alexandra Palace – there are four houseboats in the group. The boats are wonderful, the bedrooms and beds very large, the staff friendly and pleased to help. There was always hot water and cable TV when you finally move in off the verandah. Staying in Srinagar on a houseboat is highly recommended. Ignore the security... More
