Prior to the trip, I was already amazed how Mr.Ajaz response back as if the guy never sleep. He is not only provide a comfortable accommodation in his houseboats but he as well helping us to plan the rest of the trip in Kashmir, I'm glad we count on him since he never let's us down.

We stayed in this houseboat in mid-April 2015. We had been apprehensive about visiting Kashmir after hearing of the recent floods. However, there was no need to worry. The floods didn't affect our visit as tourists at all. All of the tourist attractions were open and accessible. We heard that these floods were no where near as bad as the... More

My wife, her parents, and myself spent three excellent night's in this houseboat. It was a wonderful stay, and I'd strongly emphasise that Srinagar is wide open for business, safe for visitors, and - for the purposes of tourists - relatively unaffected by the recent (March/April) floods, though of course locals face more challenging times. Ajaz's boat dates from the... More

Visited Srinagar with family in March & stayed here for 2 nights. Good accommodation, helpful staff & good food is how I’d like to sum up. The owner, Ajaz was helpful & took personal interest in ensuring the comfort of guests. The room was fairly comfortable & warm. The caretaker was very prompt and eager to help/take care of needs....

We stayed only for a night in the houseboat, but we had an amazing experience. The food was great and everything was freshly made and serve to us at our delight. The houseboat was spacious and nice with 4 bedrooms, a hall and a dining room. The staff was amazing and gave us great service! (Even in the middle of... More

I would struggle to fault Chicago Houseboats. They have it sorted. Whilst on the busier Dal Lake they are located well back from the boulevard so it feels peaceful. No charge for chacara/boat to/from Stop No.9. Boats are in super condition and packed with lovely old furniture and features. Wi-fi included and the fastest I experienced in J&K region. Food...

I stayed in Chicago for 3 days. The stay was very comfortable. Mr Ajaz is a a gentleman, and takes good care of their guests. It was a memorable trip and Mr Ajaz has planned my trip to Pahalgam, Gulmarg and a daytrip to Sonmarg. I got more than what i expected! :)

Everyone suggested that I must stay at a houseboat if I visit Srinagar. I feel I am lucky that I chose Chicago group of Houseboats as my nest for 5 days. It was well maintained and all amenities were as per the promise. In fact the service was beyond our expectation. Mr.Ajaz Khar was most helpful with his valuable suggestions... More

Absolutely outstanding... Memorable experience. Welcoming and comfortable environment. Probably the best tasting food, served by well mannered and soft spoken staff. Costumers satisfaction is their top priority.
