Value
Loacted in the world famous Dal lake which is often called the “Jewel in the crown of Kashmir”, Houseboat Ambassador can be accessed through a 5 minutes shikara ride from Boulevard Road, Gate NO.7 (situated on the right side of the Srinagar-Harwan road which runs along the bank of the Dal lake). The Houseboat is an architectural miracle blended with hospitality beyond compare that gives our valued guests a feel of being home even away from their homes. The deluxe rooms of Houseboat Ambassador are adorned with exquisite pieces of walnut wood, and with time they have been rendered more or less as artefacts that serve an evidence of our traditional hospitality. Our Deluxe Houseboat can be compared to any 4 star hotels in any matter of furnishing, fixtures, services and other amenities. Houseboats in Kashmir are one of the dream destinations in the world, which fascinates the tourists coming here to explore and experience its hospitality. The Houseboats are not only competitive but also comfortable in all respects. Houseboat Ambassador is counted among the top best Houseboats in Dal lake and is also one of the few Houseboats that has the facility of internet and WiFi for the comfort of our guests so that they stay in touch with their friends and family members back home whilst their stay. The neighbourhood of Houseboat Ambassador is what distinguishes it from the other Houseboats. Away from the hustle bustle of roads, you’ll enjoy the surroundings.

It was the best decision to choose Amabassador. The houseboat is very clean. The view from the houseboat is breathtaking. You can easily get vegetarian food. Javed bhai and fayaz bhai are very friendly. I have stayed two times in Ambassador. It was once in a lifetime experience. I was really satisfied with my visit. They even helped us to arrange our visit to other places in kashmir

Like i said , A home away from home, simple people, mesmerising dreamlike surreal ambience, simple authentic food . The owner is so approachable and supportive. They accept money on Paytm and google pay , which was the most relieved part about this House boat. The owner and his family is available 24x 7 to all your needs. They even help you with your planning for the day. The 2 hours shikara ride was the most memorable shortest trip i have ever been to . These people deserve to host more guests from all over the world. All the best

Hi,I stayed at ambassador boat for a week and had the time of my life, i was a little sceptical about travelling to kashmir due to all the news surrounding the place and in the past have skipped kashmir and gone to himamachal and UK. Fortunately this time i called javed first and he was so helpful, responsive and sincere that i decided to go to kashmir. This trip changed my perception of kashmir, kashmir has beautiful valleys and gentle people. To anyone having doubts about the place, please call javed once he will give u the exact picture, anytime of the year. I highly highly recommend kashmir and stay at ambassador boat. They plan all kinds of treks and sightseeing. All u have to do is call them once and thats it, they will takecare of your vaccation and make sure u have a good time. Mr hassan, javed and fayaz were very kind and i cant thank them enough for the wonderful vaccation and i dint get a chace to thank Mrs hassan for the wonderful meals, but she is awsome.

We spent a lovely week in Ambassador Houseboat. The houseboat is located slightly inside the Dal Lake, so we got to enjoy stunning views everyday. Arrangements were made to pick and drop us to the ghat whenever we needed. The inside was very clean, comfortable and spacious. Mr. Fayaz and Mr. Javed took incredibly good care of us and were very pleasant to interact with. Special mention for the wifi connectivity!

We, 2 families (total 4 adults and 2 kids), booked the whole houseboat where we have 2 double bed rooms with attached bathrooms, 1 common TV room, 1 common dinning room. We stayed there in May 2019. Best Himalayan Range view from the houseboat. Houseboat owner Husam Ji and Javed bhai, both are very good person by heart and very very helpful as always. You will feel the homely atmosphere there all around. This is our 2nd time stay in the houseboat ambassador. Earlier we visited in Feb 2013.

We stay in this houseboat with my friends. We are 4 members. The owner is very friendly, humble and nice. Breakfast is simple but very nice. The houseboat also very nice and clean. There are heater on the bed, so we are not feeling cold. On that day the weather is 5`C. We love stay here and we will back soon, InshaAllah.

Everything was amazing, this is a must do experience yes it was so cold during the night and early morning but I would say this is a part of the experience too. Mr. Hussam and his son Fayaz where so kind and welcoming, the houseboat design itself is very interesting and authentic. I would definitely stay here again if I came to Srinagar.

Hi, I’m Carla I stayed at this houseboat when I arrived in Kashmir and without a doubt the best thing I have done. The service and the rooms deserve a score of 10, and you also feel at home. In my case, since I was traveling alone and I am still quite young, they took care of me a lot, I appreciate it . To finish just saying that the family is wonderful.
