We stayed at this boathouse for 2 nights. We were taken a good care and served with delicious foods by the Sultan and his family. The houseboat looks small but it serves the purpose of a cosy stay We recommend this place. Ramaya.

This is the second time I stay in the Jewlbox Houseboat. The experience is as good as the first time. The rooms are cozy and clean. Food is always delicious and freshly cooked. The owner and his family speak fluent English and always provide hands on information about sightseeing, transportation, trekking, etc. I feel safe and comfortable staying in Jewlbox Houseboat. Will definitely come back next year.

Nous avons réservé ce houseboat sur conseil d'un ami. La nourriture était excellente (ce qu'on a mangé de meilleur sur un mois en Inde) et l'emplacement très calme. Le houseboat est très beau et propre, avec un intérieur fait de meubles anciens. Le seul bémol est que nous avons eu un malentendu sur le prix (malgré que nous ayons confirmé par SMS ce qui avait été négocié). Ils ont remis ce prix en question (en ayant l'air sincères, on pense qu'ils n'ont pas pris la peine de lire le SMS avant d'y répondre). Comme le prix demandé n'était cependant pas exagéré par rapport au service et au lieu, on a décidé de faire moitié moitié et de payer un peu plus que ce qui avait été convenu. Malgré cela, on a senti que ça ne leur plaisait pas et qu'ils étaient fâchés. Ceci dit, ils ont continué à assurer le service prévu et les repas ont continué à être bons et généreux. On recommande donc cet établissement, même si on conseille de vérifier plutôt deux fois qu'une le montant convenu.

Dal Lake is a special place. It's very beautiful and calm. During 3 days I was the only guest in Houseboat Jewel Box. And then 1 day I shared the houseboat with a Korean couple: very nice and charismatic people. As it's a rather small house so we had a dinner together and I liked talking to them very much. I wish them all the best! Jewel Box is a family run houseboat. Mr. Sultan is very attentive and caring. He and his family did their best to make my staying there memorable and comfortable. Everything was ok. Bed was comfortable. Additional blankets were provided in case of cool nights (they even gave me a warmer). Hot water was on request. Much Kashmiri tea and drinking water were always at hand. Food was tasty. There were some problems with Wi-Fi (not a good connection) but it was ok for me not to use Wi-Fi very often. A couple of times I didn't mind to see some local shopkeepers. They came to the houseboat. So I had a nice time sorting out their goods and I could buy some nice shawls and earrings for a reasonable price. Mr. Sultan and his daughters gave me advice what to see in the town and surroundings and taught me how to prepare Kashmiri tea. They are kind and hospitable people and I wish them many happy guests!

Houseboat Jewel Box is a quiet yet centrally located option on Dal Lake. Mr. Sultan and his family run it wonderfully, making guests feel very much at home and comfortable. There are only two rooms so you can be assured tranquility, privacy and personal attention. The food is some of the best in India and always cooked fresh by the family. They can recommend many unique tours and trips that other tour agencies will not. Srinagar is a very special place and Houseboat Jewel Box is the best place to base yourself from.
