Unforgettable stay at Srinagar
We had great time staying at Akbar houseboat. The place had surprised us in many ways, the well decorated dining room and living room are impressive and we love to sit at the balcony and enjoy the lake view. The location is quieter and the boat tour to the lotus lake is unforgettable experience. Food is tasty and warm. I would like to specially thank the owner Mr. Akbar for his warm hospitality and kind heart to arrange everything during our stay there. We will definitely recommend to our friends and would love to return in near future.

Best of Kashmir holiday
Amazing host. Service at your beck and call. Serene locality in Nigeen lake. Owner Mr. Adnan is always there to guide and arrange things for you. He gave us the best rates for car travel throughout our 13 day trip along with a very decent and responsible chauffeur.

Beautiful!
Located on quiet Nigeen Lake, from this houseboat we enjoyed many serene mornings with stunning views of the mountains reflected on the placid water. There a two houseboats, one "family style" with common areas and rooms rented individually, and a second, 2 bedroom/2 bath boat for private rentals. The larger boat is pictured. The smaller boat is not as nicely decorated, but is still charming. The bathrooms could have been cleaner for our stay. We noticed here and in other places in India the use of a product called "odonil" that is supposed to be an air freshener, but its is sort of like moth balls. I didn't like it at all and removed it! The staff was exceptionally helpful, courteous, and friendly. Adnan, the owner, helped us to arrange our activities. We had a guide with us almost constantly, which is not our usual style, but was perhaps necessary because we went on many excursions. Expect to be approached by hawkers frequently. Although there was a police presence, there was no evidence of any upheaval and we felt utterly and completely safe. Kashmir is distinctly different from the rest of India, and worth visiting. Srinagar is a beautiful city, and if we return we would definitely stay on a houseboat again. Adnan was an outstanding host!

Great houseboat, with an even lovelier host!
My friend and I are interns in Delhi for the summer visiting from USA and we wanted to have a real feel of what it would be like to stay on a houseboat while in Srinagar, and this experience topped what we could have imagined! Coming up to the boat on the water (after you get to ghat 1 and take a little gondola type boat over) it is a peaceful ride over and the Host welcomes you as if you are friends which is a great feeling. The boat itself is wonderful and quite the different experience from staying in a hotel-I highly recommend this stay! We took a ride from the big lake, through the lily lake, to Dal lake and around-every moment was better than the last. Dinner was great (we ordered non-veg food to the boat) and the Kawa tea was some of the best (although it was our first taste and therefore biased but I stand by this statement!). The only hiccup was for us when the wifi wasn't around because in this area it is sparse, and we just did not come in with the knowledge of how the dongle(internet plug in) worked, but he always came through with the wifi! We were two solo female travelers and the host and owner knew of our plans to travel to Kargil and then to Leh. We came in with no actual travel plans, were going to just wing it and he was more than helpful in setting up our plans. First we were going to take a bus or shared taxi for our travels, and he was helpful in trying to find a way for us to get to Leh. It shows that he really listens to his guests, as a bit later that night he was excitedly knocking on our door saying he had an even better way for us to get to Leh. Little did we know that staying a few houseboats down was a group he was hosting looking for 2 more travelers to join! He informed us of these vacancies, we met the group, and used his influence and kindess to help us with the price (as we are students!). He was worried for our safety and comfort in our travels since the roads to Kargil and Leh are winding and tiring. We left with them early the

Friendly staff
I enjoyed my stay at the houseboat. A couple things travelers should know when booking: Definitely call ahead and confirm your booking and arrival time, so the houseboat staff can brief you on how to get there. Its a bit difficult to find, and this is not actually one single houseboat but several different houseboats that you will be assigned to upon arrival. The staff were friendly and the meals were good.

Best if you are looking for houseboat experience. Adnan is an excellent host and our caretaker Bilal is also good. Best part is homely food provided by houseboat people.
