We had a great overnight stay at Akbar houseboat at the serene and the beautiful nigeen lake at Srinagar. Great hospitality and wonderful hosts. Great value for money. Clean rooms, homely kashmiri food, courteous and above all great location . Much better than a stay at Dal lake. Thank you, Adnan.

Nigeen is less crowded than Dale and that's the good thing about it. Akbar houseboat is a very nice property and Adnan is an excellent host. You will indeed feel home away from home. Adnan took very good care of all our needs. The food prepared was very homely and the boy serving was very friendly. He was just a call away, not a phone call. But just a call with loud voice. Adnan helped us with basic things to do and things not to do during the trip. He arranged us a Shikara from Nigeen to Dale and back. He was also our point of contact for the taxi booking for 5 days. All the prices were reasonable. It was a very comfortable and memorable trip for our family. Must stay here !!

Flooded with kindness and the best services provided by the hoteliers. Have stayed in many Hotels in different cities & great hospitalities have been provided but only at a cost. But this stay taught us that, still there are people who gives you the same experience only considering the customers comfortability as their motto and Akbar houseboat is one among them. On reaching Nigeen lake gate we were accommodated by Shikara ride (It's a complimentary ride by Adnan) to the houseboat. We had a warm welcome by Mr. Adnan (Proprietor) and his team at the berthing deck with welcome juices and cookies. Ours was a group of three families. The next few days we spent there, Adnan & team made sure you will have the home like feel ,. Treated us like a family member. We were served with homely cooked foods as per our wish. Rooms / Toilet were clean and the Sunrise view from this hotel at the right place. He had a track on us from the day we boarded from our place and guided us throughout the entire trip. Adnan arranged us a Car with a best price and a good hear ted man who drove us (Mr. Umer Wangnoo). For next five days. Umer was the best in guiding with the places and took us to lot of places. His choices of Hotels for food were too good. Also Adnan organized for a surprise Bday party for one of my friend in this trip. The newly married were. Overwhelmed by the cake and candle lit arrangements. Overall the six of us rated this at 10/10.

The scene from the HB is pristine and beautiful. It was really a feeling of floating home away from home. Mr. Adnan, the owner received us when we reached, gave the orientation of the houseboat. He also did delve into the history of How and why the concept of Houseboat emerged in J&K. It was all very interesting to know about it. It was all lovely and rejuvenating. :)

We stayed at this place this June. It was my anniversary as well as my wife's bday. Houseboat is in very good condition. The location is good too. We need to take a Shikara to reach the houseboat. Food was average. Service was excellent. The host and his team were very friendly and tried to help us in every all possible way. They helped me arrange a cake for my wife. The place is highly recommended.
