An excellent hospitality with no hassles at all

Posted 13 Aug, 2015

Had got very good reference of Chicago Group of Houseboats from a friend. I did enquire a lot on other houseboats and organisers but finally looking at quality and trust I went with Ajaz and team only Couple of things I wish to highlight here: 1. Ajaz is a very humble and gives customer satisfaction a priority. 2. He made sure we have best holiday ever. Even he went to extent to rearrange our booking because Sonmarg was closed due to cloud burst. 3. Even when we gave the feedback that one of the room assigned in Gulmarg was not good, he ensured within 5 minutes, we had room change. 4. From the first day till last day, he and his team ensured everything is without any hassle.

A memorable experience and prompt staff services

Posted 8 Mar, 2015

Little did I know about Houseboats but everyone suggested me to stay in a houseboat if I am at Srinagar. Indeed they were correct and I am happy that I made the right choice by selecting Chicago Group of Houseboats as my nest I must say that I was a bit skeptical when I chose this. However, when I spoke to Mr. Ajaz Khar over phone I felt that I am talking to a sensible and wise person who will not bluff. He guided me correctly by suggesting to reach by Flight instead of by road due to weather condition and since then I was confident about him The room was well maintained and amenities were as per the promise. In fact, it was more than expected since I have a kid who is very choosy about food. He never felt that he is out of home and Mr. Khan was the mosat Chicago Group of Houseboats, Srinagart helpful person to make him happy Food was awesome and made as per our choice with great taste. Service was prompt and we always felt at home. Mr. Tariq did his best to roam us around for 5 days in the well maintained Innova car and we never needed a guide for local sightseeing. All other arrangements were perfect as well at Sonmarg and Gulmarg which helped us to avoid loss of time and money I would love to be there again and surely stay again at Chicago Group of Houseboats. Indeed they made our trip comfortable beyond our expectation.

Good location, near lake and helpful staff

Posted 29 Sep, 2014

Hotel was located near to Dale Lake. Location of the hotel was very good. Interiors and exteriors were nice. Booking and front office staff was perfect. Taste and quality wise, food was good. Staff behaviour was helpful and friendly. Rooms were neat, clean, and spacious. TV was there but geyser was not there. Food was available and it was good. Nothing was available in activities. Srinagar as tourist place is beautiful. I went there with my family in the month of May 2013 and it was a relaxation trip.

Polite staff and nice Dal Lake view from the room

Posted 23 Sep, 2014

It was in Dale lake. We did not face any difficulty to reach there. Staff was very polite, very nice, and gentle. Look wise, it was very beautiful and heritage hotel. There was no problem in services. No delay in check-in and check-out. Room was spacious and clean. Dale lake view was visible from the room. They provided 24-hour hot water facility there. Food was very homely and very tasty in the hotel. No activity was there. Boat facility was there. I had no suggestion for hotel development. I stayed there for 2 nights.

We stayed at this property for two nights from 24th July until 26th July. The hotel is located in a very peaceful area and is definitely a place to stay for those who prefer calm environment. We liked everything about this hotel. Right from the hospitality provided by the excellent staff to the delicious food, everything met our expectations. The amenities provided by this hotel are definitely above 3 star standards. Overall it was a good stay.

Awesome experience of stay for two nights in Chicago group of houseboat. The drawing room and dining room interiors were very good, more than my expectations. Room is very cleanly managed and all thing are arranged in proper manner. The staff and owner (Mr. Khar) is very nice person.

Great Services, Good Location !

Posted 9 Jul, 2014

I stayed here last year with my husband and we had a great stay - Ajaz Khar showed us around the city, we also took a trip to Gulmarg, did the vegetable market and wandered around Srinagar. It was fantastic, the boat was great, and the food cooked by Mo hammed was a definite highlight. I would highly recommend Chicago Houseboats

The owner and the staff were all very helpful

Posted 23 Oct, 2013

I visited Kashmir with my family during august on a family holiday. We were 6 adults and 2 kids. We had precooked our stay in Houseboat "Chicago". When we reached the Airport we were given a very warm welcome. The driver was very co-operative. He took us to the houseboat and kept telling us about all the places that were on the way. Once we reached there everything seemed to be perfect. Everything was in its place and perfectly positioned. Our rooms were also very clean. We stayed there for 4 days and 3 nights. We had all our meals in the houseboat. The food was just awesome. The owner and the staff were all very helpful and co-operative. I really advice all the visitors who are planning a trip to Srinagar to go and stay in the same houseboat Chicago. We had a very pleasant stay all through. I still cherish my memories of my stay in Kashmir.
