I travelled with my wife and a year old kid during what one may call one of the turbulent times in Kashmir - May 2017. On safety: All negative news about visiting tourist spots (Srinagar, Gulmarg, Pahalgam, Sonmarg) and related stuff you will often read online hugely lack in substance. These tourist spots are far more safer than many other...

It is an excellent houseboat. Location is good but slightly away from boulevard road. But they provide free shikara crossing. The food was very good. They also arranged us a cab for local sightseeing at affordable rate. Food at dinning room & sitting at lawn area with view of dal lake was very good. Overall i would recommend this houseboat...

This houseboat is much better than other average houseboats on Dal lake, Srinagar. The service is equal to a 4-star hotel. Bring an umbrella and a raincoat when visiting Kashmir. The weather here is very unpredictable.

The housebaot is not in front at Dal and it is with various other houseboats nearby thus making location quite crowded. But from inside it is beautiful and well maintained. The service is good and staff is attentive to your requirements. The only bad part was food, may be they don't know much about preparing vegetarian dishes.

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 (!) matrasses, 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 accomodation for more tourists, as we own several other neighbouring boats in various price classes. Family Gousani welcomes you to enjoy the true Kashmiri hospitability in the serene landscape of the wonderful Dal Lake! ... more   less
