Truly a beautiful cozy home and a unique experience. Service (butler, house workers etc) is friendly, always available and approachable. They made this boathouse feel like home and took care of all our needs such as food preferences, heater, WiFi, safety and even bargaining tips —making sure we get the best prices, which I feel is always a concern as tourists 😆. Even arranged for a tailor to visit the boathouse and alter a dress from fabric despite my last minute request. Managed to get it ready in a few hours :) The house is beautifully crafted with wood, spacious with a living room, kitchen and rooms. There is even a garden! Rest assured, you will be taken care of here. Though the place is beautiful, the hospitality here (by our guide Yaqub and the workers) is honestly what makes this place and whole experience more memorable 😊

ReVisited Kashmir this November (last visit was August 2022) to catch the autumn colours.. and stayed again at Bostan Gulistan on Dal Lake. Once again enjoyed the hospitality and clean accommodation and yummy food served. Weather is cold at this time of the year. Enjoyed the traditional heating used in the boathouse which is quite an experience. When visiting Srinagar, Highly recommend staying at the Bostan Gulistan House Boat.

Great experience to stay on a house boat. The place was clean and cosy, the staff was very friendly. The shikaras (small boat) bring you ashore or to any other place you wish to go, like the morning vegetable market. This again done by very friendly staff. It is of course a boat and not your usual hotel room, but once you are used to it, it is a great place to stay!

It was a truly unique and wonderful experience to stay in such an antique houseboat with the beautiful view of the Dal Lake. The butler service was amazing and the food served were delicious! You are really taken care of in the houseboat. It was a wonderful stay.

Lovely houseboat with 5* service. The food was excellent & the Shikara boat man was very nice. All the tours were well arranged & the surrounding environment was beautiful with little gardens here & there.
