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

Spent 2 nights at Chicago houseboat and it was an awesome experience. Dal lake is mesmerizing and so very lively and above that was the great hospitality by Ajaz bhai and his great team. Looks like "no" is not in their dictionary. Whatever we requested for was at our service and with a huge smile. We traveled in a group... More

We stayed at this houseboat on 1st of july after reading several reviews on Tripadvisor.. The houseboat is being managed by Khan Chacha, who leaves no stone unturned to keep the guests comfortable. The owner , Mr Ajaj is well informed and very helpful. He arranged for Airport pick up without charging anything extra. The location is from Ghat no... More

We visited Srinagar in first week of July'14 and chose to stay at Chicago Group of Houseboats on Dal Lake. I am glad we made this choice. The experience is in itself is so overwhelming that you forget that you are away from your home on vacations. We booked the entire Persian Gulf houseboat for 2 days. We all loved... More

We visited Kashmir in 2nd week of June'2014. Chicago Group of House boats is awesome,,,specially the food prepared by Khan chacha. However, those who plan to stay in house boats should always keep in mind two things before such planning: 1. The flexibility of movement is restricted since very time you want to move out, you have to take the... More

This houseboat is nice & has good view of Dal lake from balcony. The location is similar for all houseboats on the dal lake with front view of dal lake & none at the back. For any houseboat you need to have shikara crossing required. there are several ghats on dal lake from where you can take a shikara to... More

I had visited Kashmir as a student in the late seventies and had very fond memories of its beauty. After thirty five years, on the silver jubilee of our wedding anniversary, I wanted to give a romantic gift to my wife. I thought why not a holiday in Kashmir! I surfed Tripadvisor and came across the Chicago Group of Houseboats.... More

It has been a wonderful trip to kashmir and all thanks to Ajaz khar for making it so special. This houseboat is rated as no. 1 not because of any super luxury but because of the most comfortable just like home stay. Khan chacha is the most energetic man we have met. He treats every guest as a special one.... More
