This is the 2nd time we came here, didn't fail us. Eventhough it's during curfew time but we feels safe staying there. The room is very nice & comfortable. The food is very good too, never feels hungry during our stay. Will certainly repeat our stay there & recommend to our friends & family.

There are houseboats, and then there is houseboat Lily of Nageen. When we landed at Srinagar airport, Nadeem picked us up and won us over with his politeness and hospitality. This houseboat offers affordable airport pickup (Rs. 700) and sightseeing services (Rs. 2500 for a day), which we availed to avoid uncertainty and haggling at Srinagar airport. Beds were warmed...

We were scared to land in Srinagar during the curfew, but the owner of the houseboat gave us confidence to travel there. Our first stop was Srinagar for our Leh trip. It was a well worth it journey.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Lily of Nageen has two self-contained bedrooms, each with a double bed plus a single bed and its bathroom. The dining room, living room and the porch are to be shared by our guests. We can accommodate up to six people on our boat. We live on a neighboring boat, so that we can be of service anytime you need us. We can cook delicious meals for you and there is always a good selection of drinks available to our guest. Should you have special requirements, we will endeavor to provide for them. If our houseboat is fully booked we can find accommodation for you on other houseboats, still considering you as our guest and looking after your needs and wishes. Houseboats in Kashmir are a British invention. They came into life around 1880 – as a British solution to a land purchasing prohibition imposed on foreigners. The Maharaja of that time allowed foreigners to live on lakes and rivers only. The British took on the challenge of creating luxurious floating houses using the best handicrafts Kashmir could offer. Cedar is the wood of choice for boat construction. The rooms have wooden walls and carved ceilings, walnut furniture, Kashmir handcrafted rugs, embroidery & curtains. ... more   less
