Lets get the bad news away first: The walls are to thin but I guess that is the case with all houseboats. The Awesome: Superb hospitality by the Owner of the Boat and also the caretaker of the houseboat, Mr Khan. He probably makes one of the best Mutton Dishes you will ever taste. Food is home cooked and freshly... More

We stayed at Chicago group of houseboats on 11th December 2014. We were warmly welcomed by mr. Ajaz (owner of the houseboat). Houseboat is a masterpiece of traditional art work, from furniture to food everything about the houseboat was perfect. Breakfast and dinner were homely and tasty. Mr. Ajaz was very helpful, he sorted our few problems without any hesitation,... More

I stayed at the 'Chicago Group of Boathouses' from the 2nd till the 4th of December 2014. It goes without saying that the asthetic beauty of the boat houses and it's surrounding will leave guests breathless. To top this experience, the kindness, generosity and warmth the housekeepers and Mr. Khar show really gives one a taste of true kashmiri hospitality!... More

Chicago Houseboats are quintessentially Indian in design and architecture, and have a beautiful flower garden and very friendly, kind, and generous staff. The food is amazing, the service is friendly, the rooms are clean, the beds are comfortable, the water was hot (not to be taken for granted in India!), and the nights were quiet and peaceful. The next time... More

First of all it is a boat. Not a cruise liner. So it is remarkable that it has all facilities of a luxury hotel. Secondly one must have an eye for detail. Everything from the wood work to the carpet work to the overall architecture gives a proper Kashmiri vibe without compromising on urban utilities most of us simply cannot... More
