Had a wonderful stay. The location was really good. The hospitality shown by Mr Imran is really commendable. Dinner served was to die for. Mr Imran was really helpful and gave us good advice and recommendation for the rest of our Kashmir trip.

Luxurious Houseboat in the Heart of Srinagar. I’m so glad I decided to stay here! The beds are very comfortable with nice clean linens and bed sheets, the houseboat balcony and courtyard are wonderful, great free breakfast, and the owner imran is amazing!!. The Outdoor area is really nice for socializing and you don’t feel pressured to buy things when you sit there, unlike other places nearby. Mr Imran Owner is great and very accommodating. Perfect Houseboat in Dal Lake Highly Recommended!!!

This gem of a place in the heart of Dal Lake Srinagar Ghat 14 Kashmir North India the paradise of the world set far away from the generic touts/hawkers that often plague tourism. Overlooking the houseboat veranda outside seating area there are very beautiful breath taking views Himalayan capped mountain views to savour as well as the famous lotus and charming wildlife. A beautiful evening sunset can be seen whilst enjoying a kashmiri style barbeque with a cup of traditional Karva tea creating a relaxed atmosphere. The rooms are spacious, clean and has first class amenities. The houseboat owner and his family were very kind and treated me as n extended member rather than just a customer/guest. In total I spent 16 days in Kashmir from March 2022 in which 8 treasured moments were at Zaindari Palace/Golden Hopes and the rest in Gulmarg/Pahalgam. Imran, Riaz, Tariq, Gulzar and Shakeel are very honest and knowledge about tourist hot spots and pioneers in mountain trekking. I will be vising them again from London England. annually. To all U.K tourists Kashmir is extremely safe and the bad propaganda is just hyped up by media agencies and India's Proxy neighbour who we all know.

Very beautiful and quiet place. We traveled in search of a quiet place and natural nature. Found a very comfortable place to relax and unwind. The owner of the hotel is attentive and helps in traveling with advice. I can recommend the youth company and people planning a quiet vacation.

Our first visit to Kashmir was an awesome experience with natural beauty of the valleys in abundance but must say that the best part was the experience of staying in a houseboat and the Shikara ride. We had booked everything last minute and were lucky to find an antique sort of houseboat named Zandari of Mr. Imraan. As we booked both it's bedroom we were able to have an exclusive houseboat experience. Also the simple and honest owner Mr. Imraan made it a very pleasant stay.

We stayed here for 4 nights in deluxe rooms and had a great time despite the bitter cold in December. The host Imran ji is a gem of a person, extremely humble and always willing to go the extra mile to make us feel comfortable. We’ll miss the endless conversations with him sitting by the fireplace every evening, about Kashmir and other things, sipping on a cup of authentic kawa! The entire boat was sparkling clean, rooms had electric bed warmers and the bathroom had hot water available always. Food was homely and delicious, served hot. Overall great stay with exceptional hospitality. Highly recommended.
