We stayed here for 5 nights, it was a great experience. Rooms were large and well decorated with good attached bathroom. Staff were very friendly and cooperative. Hospitality was fantastic. Houseboat was spacious and well maintained. Value for money. Highly satisfied with the stay. Like to visit again to this houseboat. I strongly recommend you stay here while in Srinagar.
