Very economic hotel with resourceful people

Posted 27 Nov, 2016

It is a very economical hotel and you can bargain the rates. Farhan one of the inhouse guys was very resourceful and helpful and took us around in his car. Also,in gulmarg it can get difficult for one to access the gondola rides..and Farhan will help you with that too( however I did not like the rush at Gulmarg) The food here is excellent and home made.hotel for the price. Good

Unique experience.

Posted 15 Jun, 2016

People often have mixed feelings about the houseboat experience. I enjoyed floating heaven. It is on nageen lake which is more peaceful than staying on the Dal lake in my opinion. Mushtaq the owners son made us feel at home, with stories and experiences of kashmir. Local perspective is always the most reliable. The food they served was great and very homely, which is what we were craving after a few days eating at hotels. Must try their dal! Breakfast could be better, Tip: ask them to make what you want, don't leave it to them. They served us toast, while other guests asked for parathas later and got them :( The biggest issue with most houseboats is that their heating is not adequate considering they are out in the open, so keep that in mind if you're susceptible to cold. The boat itself is beautiful and carved with great care and attention to detail. There is one tv in the living area, and WiFi on board. Rooms are large with one double bed and a single bed, along with a couch. Bathrooms have a tub to relax in. Good experience on the whole. Will visit again.

Good rooms, all facility, nice service

Posted 4 Nov, 2014

Hotel was very good. It was easily accessible. It was located far away from railway station and bus stop. No landmark was there in surrounding of the hotel. Staff nature was very good there. There was no problem in their services. Interior and exterior look of the hotel was very good. No difficulty in check-in and check-out process. Room was very good. It was neat and clean. Mountain and Dal lake view was visible from my room. 24-hour hot water facility was available in the room. Food was good. Both veg and non-veg dishes were available there. Whatever you ordered they prepared it for us. They had their separate kitchen. No activity was there. Parking area was not there. I had my own vehicle for outing. I had gone there along with my family. Srinagar is a good place. I liked it. Everything was very good there so no changes are needed. I stayed there for 2 days. Per day rent of the hotel was 3000 to 4000.

Staffs at the hotel were polite

Posted 2 Feb, 2016

The location of the hotel was near by the bus stand. The staffs at the hotel were polite. The hotel had provided a parking facility. The check in and checkout process was on time. The room allocated to me was spacious and the bathroom was hygienic. The amenities in the room were worked well. The hot and cold water facility was provided by the hotel. The view from my gallery was fine. The food which they served to me was delicious and the price was reasonable. The hotel had not organized any sightseeing trip. I would like to recommend this hotel for other travellers.

Fabulous location and good staff services

Posted 15 Feb, 2015

The last summer of mine was awesome in Srinagar. We were there for four days in Srinagar out of which we had 1st day in a hotel we did not like at all. So for the last 3 days we were here at this houseboat. It was just awesome. Location was of course fabulous as it was on the beautiful Dal lake. At morning we took the round of the Dal lake by 'Shikara' which was also arranged by the manager of the hotel. Hotel provided a good service to us and the staff is also polite and humble. Would like to stay here again if I ever have a visit to Srinagar. Would recommend everyone to have stay here.
