It was a fantastic experience living in the Zaindari Houseboat. Both father and son Inran were so welcoming that they dis not make you feel like a stranger. I wanted internet and Inran immediately offered his handphone to be used as a hotspot, absolutely free. Aside frm the cheap price, you will truly have a good houseboat experience and the Kashmiri hospitality.

Zaindari Palace was a very comfortable place to hang around, set with fun & good owners who were way more than helpful to our srinagar experience. Even with wintertime the location was great, and can only imagine how good it looks come summertime. Srinagar was supposed to be only a forgettable one-night stand after our rocky love affair with Gulmarg (Went there to powder ski, but alas there was no snow), but this place made it one more unforgettable experience on our Across Asia trip.

I would like to share my experience with all the people who are planning to visit kashmir please contact imran from Zaindari houseboat he is the best person who can make yor vacation a remarkable vacation. Imran and his father was friendly in nature with a pure heart. I have no words to describe how much I enjoyed it. The whole trip in kashmir wouldn't have been possible without imran's advice. When you will visit Zaindari houseboat you will feel like you are in heaven it is located in middle of the dal lake with beautiful and colourful scenery around. Once again thanks imran would like to come again soon.

Imran and his Abba Abdul did a great job. They were friendly and homely. It never felt as if I was 1000 km away from home. They took care of everything including transport and food and were also very knowledgeable and advised us well in terms of how much shed we pay to whom and almost everything. I would rate it as an excellent place to live.

Room Tip: Just be aware of thugs at Gulmarg. They wud rob u like anything.
