I have short Holiday to Kashmir and choose to stay at The shelter group of houseboat for 3 nights Because reviews of people from my country and professional way they respond my inquiry. During stay I feel like stay with my grandparent place not shelter, they treat me like family member, very comfortable and arrange everything perfectly. It was very safe even for Solo female tourist. The area is near Lal chowk just for 10 mins walk so you will not feel bore. They can cook simply Thai foods which i love it. Thank you Aijaz for your kind arrangement and Ishu - my smart guide for wonderful accompany. Will be back for sure!
I spent one night at the shelter group houseboat and another 4 nights at their guest house. I was very impressed with this accommodation. It was very comfortable and nice and the wooden carving at the common area was really impressive and beautiful. Breakfast was nice and you can ask them to cook you dinner for 270 rupee per person, in case you feel too lazy to go out for dinner. However, I would love for them to make some improvement especially on the squeaky wooden bed, the same issue that they were having at the guesthouse. In addition, the blankets were a bit smelly as though they didnt wash it after the previous guest checked out or maybe simply because they store it the smelly wardrobe. I hope I am wrong.
A very comfortable stay on the Shelter houseboats, great accommodation and excellent food. The family have run this business for over a 100 years ! It's close to all the sights of Srinagar with access directly to the river bank
Location is OK (feel safe and not LOUDLY PLACES). During 2-3 days stay here, I found the owner was nice, helpful and friendly.they try to do the best and arranged everything for us.feel like u are at home. The foods was delicious and have many choices for choosing, I asked them for the chicken porridge and they try to COOKED.it is the best choice in Srinagar.
