We stayed on this house boat for two nights, our bedroom was comfortable clean as was the ensuite bathroom. I defiantly would recommend it. Mohammed was very helpful and hospitable. Nothing was to much trouble. Food was very good and plenty of it. I would certainly come back here the position on the lake was so beautiful. The helpers also could not do enough for us

We had stayed there for 3 nights, we're all very happy with the warming welcome, clean & nice atmosphere, foods're excellent, exactly relax. they treat with us like the people in their family. The house boat's owner also booked the nice hotel in Gulmarg for my group. Thank you for every comfortable that u had provided us. I promise that next year I will go back to stay there for my vacation again.

Room Tip: Front balcony is proper for sitting and drinking tea and seeing scenery of Dal lake.

We stayed for 1 night on 9 th May. We are two families so they provide two rooms houseboat with kitchen dining and drawing room like a home.Dinner was good and quantity was sufficient.Lovely place to stay. They charged for 6600 only for two families with breakfast and dinner. I will recommend the place as this place is little far from dal lake but they are providing free shikara upto 11 o clock in the night for transportation.
If you guys hotel food then dont take MAP plan.As near dal lake lots of eatries and dhabhas. Dont forget to eat Rajma .

Need to improve

After serving the dinner no body came to ask if we want anything.
Servicing can be better and boys keep coming inside the boat regular basis so privacy disturbs.
Breakfast was insufficient and provide more varieties.like everybody impressions like a buffet but served only one thing..

My wife and I fell under the spell of this place. The family which received us was extremely kind, Shéfy the workerboy was very helpful and the owner Mohamed gave us very good information for our journey. Our room aboard Young Bombay was very comfortable and charming, the bathroom with bathtub was very clean, the dining room which we shared with an Indian family was magnificent and the food : really delicious and typical. The sight since the terrace is magnificent, and the Lake is really our biggest crush. We shall return it's certain!

We are glad to share here our experiences on our recent Kashmir trip (May 9th through May 16th). It went on well from the day we established the contact with Mr. Umar (Son of Mr. Noor, owner of the property). During our discussions, sensing that Mr.Umar himself is a strong backpack traveller, we choose to plan our trip all through his organisation.
It was great to see his planning, promptness, punctuality, hospitality and care that they took of my family.
Always felt that we are in a safe hand and a land !! We received a true "Home Away from Home" experience.

Places we visited: Srinagar, Pahalgam, Sonmarg and Gulamrg
Duration: 7 nights
House Boat @ Srinagar: Fantastic location (quite and peaceful); very clean and neat; High Quality of service

We wish him and his all family all the best and request to continue to cater his future customers with great hospitality.

Truly a great role model to promote the Kashmir tourism !!

Mr.Gossani & his son Billal were so courteous and helpful. they arranged a jeep which look us around Srinagar and gulmarg.
we were served with food the way we want.. and tasty...
Being a Hotelier my self in really appreciate the service. right from our check in to checkout..

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Deluxe houseboat at Dal Lake, maintained by a traditional Kasmiri family. You will have the opportunity to experience the true hospitability of Kashmiri people, taste the local cuisine (also European food and spiceless dishes available), drink free Kahwa (traditional Kashmiri tea). The houseboat is deluxe, i.e. it is a richly decorated wooden piece of art. It has two spacious bedrooms with king-size beds, soft European-type (!) mattresses, one dining room, one living room and lakeside terrace. Electricity, 24-hours hot water (own boiler), mosquito nets in windows, fans in bedrooms and the common space. Comfortable bedding and traditional wooden furniture. Spotlessly clean rooms and bathrooms, which you have probably not seen in India. Internet in the family room. We can make special arrangements for long-term stays and have regular European residents (French and English speaking). We can help you with all your travel arrangements, from airport and bus station transfers, to jeep and taxi rentals, and boat trips on the lake. In particular, we recommend trips to the old town of Srinagar, Mugal gardens around the Dal Lake, shikara (boat) rides on the lake and visits to the floating market and the night market. We help you arrange transportation to mountain stations at Gulmarg, Sonmarg and Pahgram in Kashmir with trekking options. We can arrange transportation and trips to Ladakh, Manali and Jammu, and recommend you reliable travel agents in Srinagar for safe flight arrangements. It's a unique place on Dal Lake, with a mixture of European and Kashmiri atmosphere. Only here you can spend your evenings watching the boats floating on the lake, drinking Kahwa and talking to other fellow travellers. From the roof, you can observe the wild birds, boats on the lake, the surrounding mountains and the impressive Srinagar fort on top of the hill. Everyday crossing to our boat is easy - we have own shikara (crossing lake boat), and the price includes one-way passage to the shore. For getting to the houseboat from the shore, you just take one of shikara-taxis for 5 rupees only. We can also help you find accommodation for more tourists, as we own several other neighbouring boats in various price classes. Family Gousani welcomes you to enjoy the true Kashmiri hospitality in the serene landscape of the wonderful Dal Lake! ... more   less
