we stayed there in march 2012 for 4 nights. we got very good service and hospitality from Mr Ab Karim and his team. eventhough the HB at the jhelum river but the view and location still very nice. you can explore sinagar from the HB by walking. transport is easy to get to go around from the HB. Mr. karim look after us very well. we can't forget the hospitality given to us especially when take us to their home to meet his family. the food also very good and the price is reasonable. if we go there next time, which my daughter keep asking to want another trip, definately we will stay there again. i strongly recommend this HB.

Very good hospitality and nice veg food provided by people managing houseboat. We were small family - couple with 2 kids stayed in late April 2012 after reading reviews. Price is very reasonable. People here will make all attempts in their reach to keep you satisfied during your stay.

However you do not get Dal lake views and similar market area - which is 10-15 min away by vehicle.

I recommend this place if you are visiting on average budget.

Room Tip: Go for a bigger room with Sofa

The above review is from our estemeed guest who stayed wth us in ending of march . We would like to inform reader'
we provide the discount to the guest because of off season during March Month
and guest not like our location because he was not like to explore the city,
and we have shifted our houseboats from dal lake because of filth smile from lake water and during winter the lake freeze as its hard to get the drinking water for the guest
This information regarding the filth smile and frozen dal lake already the headline of international news and domestic news

hi all...
this was my second trip with my family to Srinagar.
we stayed at Shelter Group of houseboats at the bank of Jhelum river in the heart of the city. we were dere for 5N-6D. we loved the services given to us by the attendants of our houseboat.when anybody is out of his home then, he feels some non-spicy food so that he can enjoy the taste as well as can’t disturb his stomach like in Shelter Group of House boat where they provide the food like a home one, and they have rich in basic knowledge of about Kashmir.
it was a great experience to stay at the shelter. location was excellent, right next to lal chowk city and near shri paratb singh palace. rooms were nice and clean

Hi all

This was my first trip with by family in Paradise land of this earth called Srinagar, where i stay in Shelter Group of House boat for 5 nights and 6 days. In this trip my family members like the charming beauty of Srinagar as well as the people of house boat/ attendant are all very helpful in every regards, when anybody is out of his home then, he feels some non-spicy food so that he can enjoy the taste as well as can’t disturb his stomach like in Shelter Group of House boat where they provide the food like a home one, and they have rich in basic knowledge of about Kashmir.

Everyone having wrong impression about Srinagar because of terrorism/violence/bombing etc but is all untrue and totally false it is totally clean and safe part of Indian.

We like the rooms and its utility like hot water at any time, electricity seriously I enjoy when there is power cut, they suppose to be use kerosene lamps its typical looks like candle light dinner seriously I like this one.

I prefer to go and stay with Shelter Group of House boat again and again

Checking in I had someone going through all the points that would be importnat and a very helpfull person where I had questions. Concierge service was excellent even under very busy circumstances.

Room Tip: amazing view from last room
