The rooms are very comfortable, the family very helpful and welcoming and the food is lovely! You have very good people to help you organize your visits in Srinagar and surroundings. The common price compared to what India is expensive, but within Kashmir is quite acceptable. Just loved the simply furnished room and homely atmosphere. Food was typical Kashmiri cuisine and loved the free tea served to us whenever we got back from the sightseeing .Free wifi was indeed a blessing. The service of the staff was excellent and my little one enjoyed playing in the garden along with the kids in the family who is staying in the guest house. you can reach them on!!!! +91-98 99 29 57 86 !!!Altogether a different experience from staying in a hotel room because you involve a lot more with the people and understand their culture and traditions in a much more broad way .The owner and the staff was very friendly and helpful infect my shopping was a huge success since I could purchase shawls ,carpets and handicrafts with the help of one of the staff who accompanied me. Highly recommended!

The home stay is situated just behind the main nigeen lake. It's a good value for money in terms of clean lodging & boarding and really very near to all the point of attractions. The staff was friendly and showed a great deal of care for our safety with volatile political climate in Kashmir valley. Recommendation is to do online booking for this place in advance so they are prepared for your arrival and you will save your self from touts who try to sell you a room or polluting houseboat the moment you arrive at Srinagar. The in house restaurant has limited items on menu but are prepared well. may come again with family really nice palace to be with them.....

My family and I enjoy traveling...we usually go to major cities and stay in hotels, but this particular trip we decided to do things differently. a friend of ours recommended we go to Kashmir, and do a home stay... so we did and we were very satisfied. The rooms were very clean and have a nice view of the mountains. I am a pretty big eater, and I can definitely say with full confidence the food was simply amazing and probably my favorite part of the trip. Everything is just great! i highly recommend it!
