We chose to stay at Chicago House boat after doing loads of research and so glad we did so! Our host, Mr. Ajaz and his crew provided the most courteous, hospitable and comfortable stay at Dal Lake. Mr. Ajaz set up a car for the entire 4 days which included airport transfers, Sonmarg and Pahalgam. Sonmarg and Pahalgam are hidden... More

We chose this houseboat on a friend's recommendation and were not disappointed. Ajaz (the owner) and Mr Khan were so helpful - nothing was too much trouble and we were encouraged to treat the place like our own home. Kashmiri tea appeared at frequent intervals. There is free Wi-Fi in the sitting room. We were there during Ramadan but meals... More

To begin with, I booked this houseboat after reading TripAdvisor reviews. I wasn't let down. Ajazbhai and his team of old but trusted lieutenants like Mohammadbhai and Khan Chacha lived up to every word of their reputation. We felt as if we were at home. The houseboat is in a part of the Dal lake known as Golden Dal lake.... More

We selected the Chicago Houseboats based on the positive reviews on TA. I stayed there with my wife on 13th August 2014. Ajaz (the owner) had arranged for a free pick up from the airport and the car dropped us at Gate no. 9 on the Dal Lake. From there, a 5 - 7 minute shikara ride took us to... More

Visited this property in January 2014 by direct booking and wanted to plan my tour on my own. On reaching the house boat, met with Mr Ajaz the owner of the house boat who helped me further in planning my tour to Gulmarg, Pehalgaon and Sonmarg. He is a very much descent and concerned person for the guests. Surprisingly, the... More

My friends and I stayed at Chicago Group of Houseboats in early July of this year. Everything positive you are hearing about this place is true. The house boat is both rustic and lavish at the same time, hard to pull off. The hospitality is without peer. The food was excellent. We had the best time and I sincerely hope... More

Really a pleasant place to stay. The houseboat is oldfashioned but elegant and charmant, the food is really good, there also is a goodworking wifi connection, and all the staff are extremely kind and helpful. Mr Ajaz, the boss, is a real gentleman, who silently appears exactly when you need him (for example, he found us filter tips for rolling... More

We were bowled over by the quality of room, service and location. We had made no plans and stumbled upon this haven of peace in a busy and confusing town, arriving at Eid when everyone was on the streets. No request is too much to ask, from arranging a wonderful trek in the Kashmiri mountains to sourcing boxes to pack... More

Besides all beauties in and around Srinagar these Houseboats in the center of the Dal-lake were my haven of peace. Not only do the boats have beautiful wood carvings and noble interior - they just have the loveliest hosts. Ajaz and his staff ensure every possible comfort, from tea to tours. You get so much for such small money! Summing... More

We stayed here for a night and it was a wonderful experience. Ambience of the houseboat exceeded our expectations, Mohammed chacha was on his toes all the time, he just keeps on going and offers everything you ask for. Ajaz bhai, the owner is a man who commits his promises so be assured that you ll find the best hospitality... More
