Bostan Gulistan House Boat is the best place to stay in Srinagar. It is the only group of house boats which has Island Garden. Food is also homely and very nice. This House Boat has won many awards and is testimony to cleanliness and wonderful service. Bostan Gulistan also has best location on the Dal Lake. Go for it!

Bostan Gulistan is everything you hope for when dreaming of your house boat stay on Dal Lake. The interior design and furnishings are both luxurious and totally authentic. The bedrooms are super comfortable with squeaky clean bathrooms. The food is delicious and Yaseem service is super attentive. The front porch must have one the best views. Thanks to all the staff my visit was a dream come true.

Our best time in Kashmir was at Bostan Gulistan!!! We had a warm welcome by Mr. Ashraf Guru the owner. The staff was extremely courteous, helpful, prompt and friendly. The interiors of the house boat is nothing less than a royal experience. Extremely clean, organised and well managed. The perfect getaway and a cozy cozy experience. Watching the sunset whilst sipping your evening tea by the Dal Lake, ah! amazing! We were served loca Kashmiri cuisine and it was YUM!! Highly recommend a stay at Bostan Gulistan.

One of the best house boats. The insides of the boat are fully carpeted. Very warm inside. Very nice people. Feels at home. The staff feels less like staff and more like family. They make food according to your preferences. What makes this house boat different from other boats is that the inside woodwork is fully hand work. It was a beautiful experience. I am definitely bringing more people here

We stayed at the Bostan houseboat 2 nights for 2 nights. The Bostan Gullistan group have several houseboats in a row, with Bostan and Gullistan Palace as Premium Deluxe houseboats. The Bostan has 4 guestrooms that can take up to 3 guests each. The rooms have air conditioner and fan, plus an attached bathroom. The room we had was clean and the meals all excellent. As our son couldn't really take spicy hot food, Hasan the housekeeper on Bostan adjusted the meals thereafter. Only drawback, if you are a light sleeper is the masjid nearby and early call to prayers.

I cam here qith ny mother and originally, we planned to stay here for one night. But then we liked it so much that we ended up coming back for another night. If that doesn't give you an idea of how amazing thsi experience was, let me elaborate. The room was typically Kashmiri with beautiful decor. In fact, the entire houseboat was beautifully decorated. Free Shikaras were provided to commute between the ghat and the houseboat and chargeable shikaras were provided to view the sunset and visit the market. The rates were quite reasonable. Breakfast and dinner were included and the meals were DELICIOUS. They tasted just like homemade foods. The hosts were so gracious and they would always make sure that we're well fed and comfortable. We were non-vegetarians so we were okay both ways, but om our first night here, another family in the houseboat was a family of pure vegetarians. The host made sure that our family and their family ate separately so that they don't feel uncomfortable due to non-veg food. That's how thoughtful thwy are. Oh and, there is also an attached gift shop selling the most unique aayi work and paper mache stuff. There were items I'd not seen anywhere in Kashmir. Overall, I loves the experience and would love to visit again! <3
