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.

Just been back to Bangkok today. I stayed total 3 nights, in 2 different houseboats, both run by Shelter Group. Both met the same standard of friendly atmosphere, helpful staff and cleanness.Just a bit different in decoration. By the way, here's some tips for Thai people, the cook is familiar with Thai guests. If you prefer Indian food (like me),... More

Experience of stay at houseboat on Jhelum River with shelter group of Houseboats was definitely great & different as compared to staying at hotel. We were a group of 17 persons including babies young & old age people (variety of expectations), all were fulfilled satisfactorily by the most cooperative staff & owner .I would like to quote one incident; one...

Stayed in the houseboat for 5 days in march. In all the years of travel, have never seen such hospitable staff anywhere else. Starting from arranging the cab to advising us about the sightseeing places, everything went very smooth. The home made food was very good. One tip: Since both non veg and veg have fixed price, u can order... More

Excellent experience of houseboat with shelter group. Very courteous and freindly staff. The owners were also very cooperative. They served us good food and took good care of us. We had made taxi arrangements also through them. The only drawback is its location which is not on dal lake. But if you prefer hospitality, this is an ideal place.

We stayed on this houseboat during first week of April. Check in was pretty smooth. Rooms are nice with walnut carvings and Kashmiri art hangings. It looks great especially during night and early morning when one can see Jhelum river flowing and snow clad Zansar mountains, it looks mesmerizingly beautiful. These houseboat guys helped us planning our daily tours, vehicle... More

We stayed 1 night. Location at jehlum river which is a bit far from dal lake but near to lal chawk market. Peaceful locations. Foods are nice. Rooms are clean, neat and spacious. Electric blanket and hot water was provided. Mr syafiq is a good host, he's very helpful.

A huge bridge towering over you, and the feeling of floating over the peaceful waters of Jhelum, while soaking in the luxurious interiors of Shelter Houseboats - my idea of an idyllic getaway. There is not too much activity around the houseboat, as one might find if the houseboat were to be present in Dal Lake. And that suited us,... More
