Good location, you've to go through Shikara gate 12. Home like food on the boat's beautiful dining hall is awesome. On my request the guy prepared three types of tea -- Kewa, Namkeen chai and milk tea. Every version of the tea was awesome. I've tried kewa in several places of Kashmir. But this one was the best.

We had a six days holiday in Kashmir, most memorable was the House Boat stay, quite location, clean bathrooms, beautiful Decor, delicious food, helpful "Shabbar" staff. Amazing view of sunrise and sunset. Owner of boat came personally to check if everything was up to the mark. My best stay ever. 👍👍👍

The houseboat is very comfortable and the butler showkat was very helpful n friendly. Food was ok and the cook followed our request.so we can request what to eat. The room is spacious but the water heater only worked in the morning. So far staying here is one of the best experience we got.

Before you enter Kashmir you will be warned by people & relatives. However, when you enter Kashmir, you will be amazed to see the hospitality of every person you meet. I did like Manali at Himachal more than Kashmir but its also another heaven to visit. This Houseboat is a good place to stay but I believe most houseboats are... More

The boat is beautiful and it is situated a bit away from traffic noise which is nice. Food offered at the boat is a bit monotonous and of course more expensive than in restaurants but then again - it's convenient to eat there once you have returned from the city. Wifi is quite good. Shikara ride was peaceful and had... More
