Booked 3 rooms on one houseboat, specifying we wanted a back room and expecting exclusivity but arrived to find we were sharing and divided between two boats and had to wait for dinner.

From the beginning until the last day of our stay in Chicago Houseboat were splendid. They really took care of us like a family. Mr Ajaz was really concerned when our flight couldn't land and had to be rescheduled. He even checked every hour to make sure there would be someone waiting for us once we arrive at the airport....

Highly recommended place to stay in Srinagar!!. Our stay and tour around Kashmir were very amazing and satisfying. Mr Ajaz, the owner of the houseboat was very helpful and kind. He helped us a lot during our stay and took care of us to his very best. His workers were all very nice too. The houseboat itself was very comfortable,...

Highly recommend. This place is the best. From the moment I landed at the airport Ajaz and his staff looked after me and created a sumptuous home for me on Dar Lake. I felt like a prince in the intricately decorated houseboat. All of the food was delicious and plentiful. And the excursions allowed me the flexibility to concentrate on...

Even though it was an off season when we went, we were very much delighted with their service and hospitality.. It was nearly a 2 and a half month of curfew in Srinagar but still we felt complete safety and had a very tasty food served in our entire 10days of trip.

Me with my wife travelled to Srinagar for our honeymoon in month of July 2016. The hotel was suggested to me by my friends and I contacted Mr. Ajaz Khar and he assured me to make all the arrangements. When we got there, the view was mindblowing with the sun setting and the color of Dal Lake was so brilliant....

I with my family spent 3 nights at this houseboat and then they arranged an amazing trek in Sonmarg for a week. Without doubt this was one of the best holiday I've ever had. The whole crew and the owner Mr. Khar in particular are so welcoming that you never feel you are far away from home. So much so...

I stayed on the Chicago Houseboat three times this past year, twice with one friend and once with a large group. It was my favorite destination in India and this was due in a large part to the hospitality of Mr. Ajax and his crew. My favorite thing to do was just to sit on the deck and watch the...
