I stayed at this houseboat for one night on 24 oct. I called Ajaz (owner) for the booking and he confirmed the booking via email without any advance payment and said to pay at check out. Ajaz is excellent person. The houseboat is superbly maintained and the rooms were very spacious. Tariq, who manages the houseboat is also excellent person and very helpful. Ajaz invited me to his home to watch India Pakistan worldcup match, her wife made delicious dinner too for us. I am pleased by their overall hospitality and i would recommend everyone looking to book houseboat in Srinagar to look no further than this one. I will definitely stay here again in future.

Booked the entire houseboat with friends for a night. It's clean and well maintained. The dinner was amazing but the breakfast had less options. We took a Shikara from Nigeen lake to Dal lake which took around 1.5 hours of travel one way. Hence if you are taking a shikara to dal lake try going as early as possible. The Nigeen lake is calmer and cleaner than Dal lake as it's less commercialized. The sellers that come to the houseboat charges more so there is a scope of bargain.

The houseboat looks exactly as shown in pictures. The view of the lake is even more beautiful. Bilal took good care of us. Food was amazing. The whole houseboat has carpet and kids ran freely all around. it was cosy and very comfortable. Bedding was clean, washrooms clean and good stack of books to read.

Staying in Monarch Houseboat was the best decision i made in Kashmir. The houseboat is situated in a very peaceful area of Nigeen Lake away from the crowded Dal Lake. Uncle Jaan and his son Aijaz are super hospitable and welcoming. They make your stay better by helping you with anything required, be it clothes shopping or saffron shopping or shikara rides or anything at all. They help you bargain with the local vendors. Food served at the houseboat is outstandingly delicious. We were served Gushtaba, Kebab and Rista(local cuisines) for dinner and local bread Lavash for breakfast. Something very unique that i had never tried before. Rooms are exceptionally clean and hygienic. Tea/coffee is served throughout whenever you ask for it. I definitely recommend everyone to stay here when in Kashmir without an ounce of doubt. I shall definitely visit again.
