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.

I stayed at this houseboat from 1st March to 3rd March 2015. It was a memorable experience at the boat. The services and food were excellent. The best in Srinagar for budget houseboat. Aijaz ji was very helpful for organizing and planning our trip for Srinagar and ensuring that we had pleasant stay at the houseboat. I thank Aijaz ji... More
