If you are remotely thinking of going to a houseboat in Dal lake, I would actively dissuade you and ask you to look at Nigeen lake as an alternative. The Khilona houseboat is the new kid on the block, with a brand new boat, that still smells of fresh wood. Very very artistically done and comfortable. The fixtures and fittings... More

Very cosy atmosphere and excellent food served in the warmth of the stylish living room. I stayed there for 10 days and I missed nothing. The rooms are big enough for three people, with cupboards and wall to wall carpets. Living and Dining rooms are quiet and offer the luxury of the olden times.

Absolutely fabulous experience! The rooms are clean and there is exceptionally good wifi! Food was also very nice and the location is just perfect! It is not noisy like Dal Lake so you can sleep in peace (the beds are very comfy) and you can also take a ride on a "gondola" like boat and see the floating gardens. The... More

Located in Nigeen Lake, which is a quieter and more serene place compared to Dal lake. The houseboat is large and has 4 rooms with attached baths and a lobby area.

Excellent place to stay. Away from maddening traffic of srinagar and away from crowded houseboats of dal lake this houseboat shines for it's service and hospitality. Loved the interiors. They are beautiful. Great food . Great service by azad bhai. Was awake with us till 2 am. Highly recommended to stay fro three or more days.
