I went back to Dal lake after exactly 40 years and built on childhood memories which I successfully transferred to my son and husband ,while spending 3 memorable days on the houseboat. Watching the evening sunset was a bonus and spending time on the terrace and watching the shikaras passing by is an experience in itself . This gives so... More

Chicago houseboat is one of the best houseboats available in Dal Lake, we stayed there for 4 nights in two rooms and found the overall experience memorable one. The houseboat was clean and nicely decorated with multiple classic carpets. The atmosphere in rooms was quite with sounds of cock crowing giving feeling of being in a royal village. Would like...

One of the best location, if you intend to stay on a houserboat. Away from traffic and general noise. Super clean and calm. The food by Khan chacha is great, unfortunately i could not enjoy as I was on a vegetatian diet.

Stayed in chicago houseboats for 2 nights last week. Ajaz and his staff were incredibly helpful and made our stay a truly memorable one. The houseboat is clean and exotic and is a must visit for anyone travelling to srinagar. If time rewinds, we would stay 2 more nights there. Great value for money too. Ajaz and staff, thank you...

We have stayed in Chicago HB for 5 nights with breakfast and the stay was very awesome with cleanly maintained rooms. Breakfast provided to us was homely. We have also taken a Srinagar package from Ajaz and it was also good.

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
