It is a decent houseboat accommodation in Nigeen lake owned by Mr Riyaz who is a very friendly host. The hospitality of the staff deserves five stars, they try to make the guests as comfortable as possible. They have additional bed accommodation which is good for families with kids

It is located in the Naveen Lake. The ambience is very traditional and the breakfast and dinner was also good and there are heaters in the every room. Overall a best houseboat you can get in this area.

If someone wishes to experience true Kashmiri hospitality, Houseboat Inshallah (HBI) is the place to visit. The houseboat is situated at a quaint location with no commotion, guest can enjoy the beauty in peace and solitude. The way the property is maintained is exceptional. Mr.Riaz ensures the guest are catered to the maximum, he is gem of a person and I do cherish the long chats we had in front of the bukhari with hot piping cup of kehwa. The boats are intrinsically designed with Kashmiri wood art, which would amuse you and at the same time you can't help admiring the hardwork that goes in making and running the property. The food that Mr.Riaz supplies from his kitchen is simple yet healthy, something very close to what we have at our homes daily, proportion is enough to fill the tummies. Visitors throng towards Dal for enjoying their houseboat experience but end up being disappointed because of the noise and commotion, to beat this it is highly recommended to stay at Nagin and if at Nagin then what place else than HBI. Would always want to comeback to have a chat with Mr.Riaz and enjoy his hospitality.

I have visited this house boat with my family which includes my wife and my 6 years old daughter. I was wondered about the beauty and cleanliness of the house boat. Also staffs were very cooperative. My daughter got sick. The house boat owner helped us to get treatment at health care center. Riyaz bhai, the owner drove us to hospital in his own car and provided the much needed help to my daughter. I will be always grateful to him. The house boat is a must visit place. Served food was like home food. Once again thanks to the owner of the house boat Mr. Riyaz Bhai.

Warm Hospitality and extremely safe for female travelers. Highly recommended to stay on Nigeen Lake to experience the tranquility. Houseboat experience in Srinagar is different as these boats are static and hence comfortable to stay in .

We were a group of seven who stayed at the Inshallah House boat for seven nights in Oct 2022. The boat itself is beautiful with ornate Kashmiri carving located on the beautiful Nagin lake. On our arrival Mr Riaz Mohamad the owner welcomed us personally. He would meet us each evening and help us plan the following day for sightseeing. His tips extremely useful. The interiors of the boat stunning reflect the amazing Kashmiri arts. The rooms are spacious and comfortable. Tariq and Shaukat the helpers leave no stone unturned to make you comfortable. Sajjad the chef-an awesome cook who gave us the most amazing breakfasts and dinner. We even took packed picnics for the days we were going out for the day. The stay on this houseboat was comfortable the staff friendly and helpful. We will good back and stay here.

We stayed at the Inshallah Houseboat which seemed reasonable and offered breakfast & dinner with the rent we paid . And on Nagin lake ! It seemed a good deal What we did not expect were the very clean rooms , bathrooms & the warm service that was provided by its very friendly owner , Riaz Mohd Khan . He took personal interest in our stay overlooking all our needs . The cook Sajjad is a young man who knows the tastes of Kashmiris & non Kashmiris has worked in other areas of India and is an experienced cook . The helpers , Tariq & Shaukat , are all over , running hither & tither trying to make our stay as comfortable as possible . I would recommend this houseboat for its great location , good service , and the personal touch provided by Riaz saheb & his team !
