A feedback from people who visited house boats was pretty negative. And, I had already booked this one, But, I am glad I made a real good choice. The boat was new, clean and so homely. I strongly recommend anyone who visits Srinagar to stay here. They are affiliate by ITC and do carry a brand name. The staff was courteous, warm and the food was so delicious. The owner was arm enough to come and make us feel welcome. Please visit this houseboat in case you looking for quality stay. Perpetual

House boat no5, clean with a great guy Sharif.
A pleasant trip, particularly they serve excellent food at a very reasonable rate. House boat number 5 is very clean, thoughtfully decorated. The main hero of this House Boat is the Caretaker young boy called Sharif. Always smiling and helpful. I would strongly recommend a 5 days stay here. Notwithstanding the above, stay awey from Kashmir till the unrest will be solved. We had a bad experience on 9th. July 2016, on the road, mobs blocking roads and throwing stones at vehicles. Kashmir police and CRPF, hard working force saved us to return to HB, a big thank you. Overall, Kashmir is a lovely state, nice people managed ( or ruled) by ......

A tad over priced!
The Hotel Reservation had not reached them by the time we reached for check-in. The manager was not very courteous and told us that we would have to pay despite us showing the pre-paid voucher of hotels.com. It was left to us to make calls to hotels.com to confirm our booking. Not the best way to treat guests!
