As a single female I have to say that I was treated with the utmost respect & always felt safe & well looked after. The food is very good & their generosity of heart is beyond compare.

      Great Kashimiri Hospitality”

      This place is located on the northeastern shore of Nigeen Lake with the view of splendid mountains and the picturesque lake. The owner, Mr Riaz, paid great deal of attention to all trip arrangements and made sure we enjoy our stay in Kashimir. We enjoyed a boat ride on the lake, and he guided us through a little-known mesmerizing marketplace. He gave special caring attention to my wife who became ill with minor health issues, even phoning us after our departure to check on her recovery. Mr Tarik, the houseboat attendant, was quick to ensure we were comfortable at all times. In addition, the food served was absolutely delicious. Staying at this place was such a pleasurable experience. We will definitely stay at this place again as we want to come back to Kashimir for a different season.

      Amazing houseboat! Best place to stay in Srinagar”

      This place was amazing! A Houseboat in a lake that is quiet and beautiful, further way from the busy Dal Lake! The owner comes everyday to check on you, tell stories about the place and help you make your plans during your stay there. He booked a full day driver, a shikara trip and a driver to take us to Leh. All were amazing services, and the price is not fair compared from what you would get from other places. One of thr best places we stayed in India.

      Awesome experience”

      I cannot say enough good things about staying on one of the Inshallah houseboats or the family that owns them. It was a really great experience and the boat itself is probably the nicest place I've stayed while traveling in Asia. The owners treated me like family and fed me accordingly (awesome food, by the way). Because I visited during a time of some unrest in town - but that did not affect anything on the lake - the options available were kind of limited but the owners were very helpful organizing activities to do on the lakes, which are gorgeous. When I come back to Srinagar, I'll be sure to stay with these guys again each time.

      แนะนำให้พักที่นี่คะ ดีมากๆ ”

      เราไปกับกลุ่มเพื่่อนคนไทย เมื่อช่วงวันที่ 11-16 เดือนเมษายนที่ผ่านมี ปี 2016 ประทับใจที่นี่มากคะ Inshallah Houseboats เป็นเรือที่สะอาด น่าอยู่ ตกแต่งภายในสวยมาก เรือจอดอยู่ที่ Nagin Lake เงียบสงบ ไม่พลุกพล่านเหมือน Dal Lake เจ้าของ คุณ Riaz และพนักงานให้การต้อนร้บอย่างอบอุ่น จริงใจ เป็นกันเอง และคอยให้ความช่วยเหลือตลอด เริ่มจากเข้าห้องนอน ก็มีถุงเก็บน้ำอุ่นวางไว้บนที่นอน มีผ้าห่มอุ่นหลายชั้น อากาศทีนี่ค่อนข้างเย็น อาหารเช้า สอบถามว่าเราอยากจะทานอะไร คุณ Riaz ให้พนักงานพยายามทำอาหารไทยให้เราทาน ให้คำแนะนำถึงสถานที่เที่ยว สิ่งที่ควรระวัง รวมถึงเสื้อผ้าที่ควรใส่ เราเตรียมเสื้อไปไม่พอ คุณ Riaz ก็ขนเสื้อกันหนาวมากมาย มาให้ใส่ ทำให้รู้สึกอบอุ่น สบาย ปลอดภัย เหมือนพักอยู่กับบ้าน เราตั้งใจจะกลับไปพักที่นี่อีกครั้งช่วงปีใหม่..... Thank you so much Riaz, see you again in New Year. Apple from Thailand.
