Good budget option Good budget option

Any tour to Srinagar is incomplete without a stay in a Houseboat. The reason being house boat is not only more interesting option, but also ecosystem / life around houseboat is a completely different from a hotel - it is something needs to be experienced. There is continuous flow of vendors who are hawking their goods is quite unique. Unlike Floating market in Bangkok it is real. However there are two Ambassador House boats - one luxurious and other budget. The luxurious one is spacious and has better facilities and budget one is less spacious and lesser facilities. But all said and done budget one (Rs 900 with breakfast for two person) is better value - since luxurious one is 2.5 times the cost. We stayed at budget option Pros: 1. Good value for money 2. Owner very nice and is not trying to fleece you. He has arranged shikara ride for us for 8 points tour for around 4-4.30 hours at rates which are reasonable and lower than rates being quoted by the shikara owners at the pier (we have verified the rate from at least 5 shikara owners) and official shikara rate of Rs 500 is more in theory. For lower rates start walking from crowded piers to less crowded piers ! 3. Breakfast was reasonable compared to the price. 4. Makes very good Kawha tea (Kashmiri tea) for only Rs 15 (and do not fleece tourists) 5. Since we reached during the curfew zone - there was not enough food. So we had to buy Maggi from the market and they made it for us without any extra charge for boiling for 6 person 6. Free shikara ride to the pier 7. Commode with commode shower and even bathtub -spick and span. Cons 1. Not on the Boulevard road. It is around 5 minutes ride from the pier no. 7 2. View from the balcony is considerably less compared to the luxurious one - but that can be ignored because of good value for money. It was not apparent to me from the booking site though. 3. There is only a small 1 ft x1 ft table (1 ft height) and no warddrobe - which they said will be taken care of soon - was a big problem for me. 4. Beds mattress is less than desirable.

Incredible Experience here. We booked the whole houseboat. The living room opened up to the view of Dal Lake. Serenity everywhere. It was a well maintained houseboat. The owner also helped us with the local tourist places and arranged the shikara ride to the Dal Lake market. Owners family cooked us dinner in the night and I cant begin to tell you how tasty it was. It was good 4 days that we spend there before heading to Pahalgam.

I have been a regular traveller and I use Tripadvisor to review Hotels before I book them. 2 Years on but I have never got the urge to write a review even though all the Hotel have been excellent. But HOUSEBOAT AMBASSADOR WAS AN EXPERIENCE!!! Hats off to Mr. Humas & his son Mr. >>>> made our stay so comfortable that I am sure that we would be staying in the same houseboat everytime we decide to go to Srinagar. The location of the housboat is excellent. Far from the Chaos of the main city but not too far from it either. 3-4 min of Shikara ride and you are a part of the chaos ;).... We were supposed to reach early morning but due to bad road condition and our bus we were late. Mr. Husam was courteous enough to give us calls at regular interval to know where we were. Who does that in today's world?? Upon arrival we were warmly greeted and since we were late (Reached Srinagar at 2 PM) we were also advised to have lunch and come (Since it would take time for them to prepare it). We were awestruck when we saw the rooms. Impeccable cleaniless was maintained, the rooms were large enough. The houseboat was well decorated. Service was excellent... Mr. Husam and his son Faiz were courteous enough to address all our query and help us with travel and sigh seeing. They arranged Shikara for us at discounted rates, Auto for Srinagar Darshan too and finally when all of a sudden we decided to go to Gulmarg they also helped us with arranging a taxi for the whole day... While doing research about the Houseboat I had also read that they can serve dinner provided you let them know well in advance. I did so and the Food was YUMMY!!!! Complimentary breakfast was also very taste and was warm.... Since we are tea addicts so we used to ask for tea at even 10 in the night and Mr. Faiz was at our service. We had another family of 3 people on the houseboat and one evening the lady fell sick. Mr. Faiz took her to hospital and stayed with the entire family till 12:30 AM (Midnight).... Just to keep the review short enough I am skipping a lot of memorable things about the houseboat.... Overall we had a great time, thanks to our host... Looking forward to our next trip at Houseboat Ambassador....

We were very skeptical about staying in house boats in Srinagar but as it turns out, our decision was not at all disappointing as we enjoyed every bit of our stay in the Ambassador House Boat in Srinagar. The care taker was also very helpful and took care of all our problems. Rooms were good and spacious. Washroom was really good and clean. Definitely worth saying.

Demo Trip Their are two bedrooms, room no 2 is bigger with lake view. Anyways it does not matter as you can seat in the front of the houseboat to feel the beauty of Dal and to see the lifes of the duelers.
