Our (me and my wife) experience at Khilona houseboat (KHB) shall be cherished all through our LIFETIME for two reasons. One, it was our honeymoon trip and the other for the view & stay experience we had. As others on this forum have mentioned, the location, accommodation, food and hospitality all are very good. We strongly recommend this place, though... More

Stay in a houseboat itself is a unique experience & our stay in Khilona HB was memorable.The location ,the houseboat itself & the staff give you a unique Kashmir experience. Ghulambhai the owner of the houseboat makes you feel completely at home & there is no air of a "commercial establishment"here. Ghulambhai helped us to plan our itinerary & made... More

The HB we stayed in had 4 beautiful well appointed, large rooms, along with a dining room, sitting area and a kitchen. The first thing one notices is how large the boat is - approx. 140 feet. The rooms along with the sitting area and the dining area are all done up with beautiful woodwork. The HB is located in... More

If Srinagar is paradise on earth, Khilona house boat lets you completely soak it! To begin with, very nicely located on Nigeen Lake, the calmer, more serene part of Srinagar. Ofcourse, its away from the market area, but its worth every bit as it lets you slip into paradise at any part of the day! You wake up with a... More

Nice houseboat with 5* Rooms & ambiance, with each room having perfect view of sunrise. Owner was very helpful in all aspects.I would say the service was little slow, but as this was houseboat, not hotel I guess things take time & should be accommodated.
