In Srinagar, there are two different kinds of accommodation - hotels and houseboats. If your mind is already made up for the latter, you really can't go wrong with Chicago. The price is reasonable, the houseboat is clean and well-maintained, and food is homely and tasty. So, overall it is very good value-for-money for Kashmir, which I found to be... More

In December 2013, I've planned Kashmir Trip with Trip Advisor help. I found Chicago House Boat is one of the best. I made a call to Mr Ajaz Khar. I said it is our honeymoon trip. He said, everything will be taken care. On 6th April, we arrived at Srinagar airport. Mr Saleem received us. Our honeymoon plan was entirely... More

We had booked Chicago Houseboat for 2 days but could stay only for one as our flight got cancelled. Mr Ajaz was very understanding about the situation . And I really regret not being able to stay for planned 2 nights. But nevertheless it was a great time. The location is fabulous. Everybody was very nice to us - Khan... More

We were actually placed in Appalo Boat House( or is it Apollo Boat House ) and we missed actually staying in Chicago Boat... More

No doubt Chicago houseboat is a nice property. As per the budget they offer nice service and relaxing stay. My schedule was tight but, Mr. Ajaz was co-operative with me in scheduling my bookings back and forth. Best thing I liked is the service from a gentlemen there. They offered us nice and good quality food. May be you will... More

We stayed in Chicago houseboats for a week, and trust me - it was the most carefree and peaceful stay ever! Right from arranging for our local sightseeing trips to arranging for a guide in Gulmarg -- everything was perfect. Food was excellent (on the oily side though) - Khan bhai took care of all our needs, especially yoghurt -... More

We stayed at Chicago house boats for two nights, 8th and 29th December, 2013. I would state my stay to be a pleasant and memorable one. Contrary to our fear, the boats are nice, warm and cosy. each room had a private fire place to heat the room. The boats are very peaceful. The food was nice and homely. I... More

I have rarely come across somebody like Mr. Ajaz who is simple, considerate and a person who keeps his word. We had booked directly with him and we were welcomed by Mr. Khan a... More
