Official Description (provided by the hotel)
This is Captain Abdul Hameed Dunoo, Proprietor of M/s "New Buckingham Palace" Houseboat, Nigeen Lake, Srinagar, Kashmir(India).My houseboat, New Buckingham Palace, is situated on the most beautiful lake in Srinagar Nigeen called 'jewel in the ring." Every window of the houseboat commands great views of the lake and historical fort, and on the other side of the houseboat, a huge well-kept garden with traditional trees called "chinar" and beautiful flowers can be found. The New Buckingham Palace houseboat is really a floating palace. The houseboat itself is 135ft. long and 17ft. wide, having large airy rooms. ... more   less
