I am impressed by excellent hospitality by shelter group of houseboats. The staff is very co-operative and they took very good care of my grand parents. They served food in rooms for them and helped with small things like finding their fav tv channel , helping with clothes washing and drying and support while taking stairs. The location of these...

Best location of houseboat. 500m from city center. The house boat is very close to a foot overbridge that connects to the city center. You don't need any Shikara to bring yopu to the shore. You are independent to move on the house boat or go to the city at any time as per convenience. Breakfast served was good. Good... More

Very nice location, great service and friendly hosts with good food. Because of its location on the river with a bridge to the land you do not depend on the taxi boats and you can move freely. For us a real advantage. Would book it again immediately.

If you prefer Indian food (like me),... More
