About
Description
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 ...More 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. Less

We paid Rs 900 for two person including breakfast per day for the budget option. For the bigger and better rooms in a separate house boat (just beside the one where we stayed) is at least 2 times more. bomadgatgmail
