Goona Palace House Boat ::::: Is beyond my words .....This is a beautiful place of stay I have ever found till date ! It’s clean and has a lot of comfort items to make you feel at home. We’re 9 members in total ; at Srinagar ;in the State of Jammu & Kashmir for a weeklong leisure trip to the most wonderful place on earth !!!!! had visited various place -- Sonamarg, Pahalgam, Gulmarg.....and coming back to this great Goona Palace was very peaceful and great relaxing .. Md. Lateef Goona Bhai and his entire team of management of the HB .... excellent people and we owe a lot to his great wife and the wonderful caretakers ... for her best food preparations and wonderful hospitality and the heart touching care , compassion and concerns by his entire staff !!! The best stay ever. The environment was pleasant and welcoming. Both check-in and check-out were professionally handled and easy. Friendly staff. Clean hotel. Beautiful atmosphere inside and outside around that part of the city. Its a Great location, easy to get in and out to the city. The staff was wonderful. The palace is well maintained. The beds were very firm, too firm for my liking. The food was good. I, especially, enjoyed the view of the sunset and sunrise through the majestic Dal Lake !!! When i say food was great (i mean it :)) 😊😊Overall experience was awesome.I'll recommend this wonderful place of stay whoever visits Kashmir ... to every couple and families:). You wont regret,just be there:)... Enjoy the serenity ,,,, comfort ,,, and hospitality ,,,, and food ,,, and and the most humbled Lateef Bhai ... Your involvement is amazing !!! You have made the entire trip of ours the best putting all efforts as close as you can , for our fantastic enjoyments with Nature !!!! Jannat -e-Kashmir !!!!!❤️❤️

My stay at goona palace was planned for 1 day but got extended by another 5 days as I was mesmerised by its beauty and more over the dal lake which glitters in night. You get homely food and homely hospitality. Mr Goona stays just behind his houseboat and takes care of all your needs. He planned my entire itinerary of Kashmir with a limited budget and I would say it was awesome in all manners . Plan your trip in relaxed manner and would say enjoy your entire stay in houseboat if you love peace and serenity. Signing off , visit Kashmir and hope you enjoy as I did
