Mughal Palace Houseboat
Opposite Zabarwan Park Boulvard Road Dal Lake Srinagar , Srinagar
I visited Kashmir in end of February with my wife on my 1st anniversary. We decided to start our journey in houseboat, we decided to stay in Mughal Palace by Reading review and seeing pics on various sites. Rooms were very clean especially bathroom, bellboy especially told us not to spill water on bathroom floor otherwise I'll be charged 500/- fine. It was difficult but somehow we've managed that. Houseboat was on broader side of Dale lake opposite to ghat no. 19A. Many houseboats offers cheap rooms but they are on narrow side of Dale lake near Dale gate. WiFi was mentioned in package but it was down that day, I would like to recommend management to have an alternate connection. There were chairs on rooftop to enjoy beautiful view of Dale Lake. Food was good, home cooked. Some tourist may find it absurd for such costly package having normal home cooked food, it's totally personal choice. There was only single Dining room in houseboat, time slots were given to each room. We've requested bell boy to arrange cake for our anniversary it was arranged on very short notice. Bakshish(Tip) culture is dominant in Kashmir everywhere. Overall stay was very good.
The hotel was located in the city. The transport facility was not provided in the hotel. The parking facility was not available at the hotel. All amenities were provided in the room. WiFi facility was provided in the room. The best part of the hotel was location. The behaviour of the staff was politely. I would recommend this hotel for upcoming travellers. I was satisfied with this hotel.
As an houseboat it's an excellent stay but need to improve few things: Since charging 5 star prices then few things need to workout. Food was ok, room should have oil heaters instead of AC heaters as AC are more like blowers and also they positioned bang on head, so highly suffocating. Must provide hot water bottles bags in their service, 24 hr hot water should be there though on saying they supplied it but it took time for boiler to heat. Rest all was superb.
The hotel was located centrally in the city. The food was good in the hotel. I would suggest they should improve the room facilities for comfortable stay. I would not recommend this hotel to upcoming travellers.
I had visited this hotel with my family. The service at the hotel was on time. The hotel price was expensive. The transportation facility was available nearby the hotel. The room was comfortable with neat and clean. All the amenities were provided in the room in good condition. All kind of food was provided at the hotel.
Mughal Palace Houseboat is very nice and very good services. Dinner is very nice. Service was good. People is too good and very helpful. Thank you so much Mughal Palace Houseboat. Next time I will came there definitely I will visit.
It's spacious Houseboat. Visited it in month of December 2015. Every room had heater so stay was pleasant. Food takes long time to arrive hence order bit before. Overall it's value for money houseboat. Every room has Bath tub and suite has Jacuzzi. Frontdesk and staff were very helpful.
The Mughal palace was very well built, located at beautiful location on the lake. All interiors fittings like bedroom tapestries, air conditioning, bathroom sewage systems etc were excellent. Services were excellent and the food was good. Exterior views from the desk was also very good.
It was good place to stay, room was awesome, but food was not up to my status. Staff was good, except food everything was good. Enjoy the stay and a good place for couples for a romantic stay. Go there and enjoy, Mughal Palace houseboat, very beautiful view and the look of Dale lake is also awesome.
The setting was like just out of Shammi Kapoor movies, it was so romantic and beautiful. The Shikara ride and stay over Dale lake was out of this world. It was like a wish come true. The rooms were a bit small and untidy though and toilets were not very clean. But you can't expect the hotel like stuff in Shikara. The food was great typical Kashmiri style. However the service and politeness was missing in staff which is across Kashmir.
