We stayed in Athena Palace Houseboat on 3rd October 2015. Being off season I think we were only customer in houseboat. The foods were mouth leaking. The spices of Kashmir can be found in foods. The service was excellent.

it is full of wood so if a person walks in the passage or talk in his own room all noise can be heard in the neighbouring room. This house boat has 4 rooms, a dining room and a common room. Clean and experience to be taken once.
