Rooms are not upto the mark it doesnt have locks memory card from the rooms got stolen outside sitting area is good, no proper breakfast was provided shikara person was not co operative overall avoid stay at this place
We stayed in the houseboat in march month. We booked this house boat through make my trip . Room of houseboat was clean. food was superb. Staff members was too much cooperative. We recommend this houseboat to others. Everthing is good in the boat
Amina houseboat is located about 0.4 km from Ghat No. 12. You need a shikara to reach there from the bank. The first time you reach there, they would carry you to the houseboat for free. But after that every trip from the houseboat to the ghat and back would cost you Rs 100-200 depending upon your bargaining skills. The houseboat was neat and clean. Nothing pretencious, but satisfactory. But they haven't maintained the front deck well which would actually be an ideal place to have tea in the evening with a good view of the lake. The hospitality staff also does not refrain from smoking in this area. We had booked 'cottage rooms', which we learnt, are at the rear end of the houseboat. I don't know what do they call the rooms on the front from where you get better view of the lake. The room service was prompt. The breakfast served was not bad. But the lighting in the rooms was very dim. You have to grope around in the night searching for things in the bag. The mosquitoes were also a bit of a nuisance. There were no mosquito repllents around. Despite all these shortcomings, the experience was not utterly bad. It was a novel experience to live in a place surrounded by water. I would recommend everyone to stay in a houseboat for atleast a day if the trip is for 3-4 days.
We stayed 01 ngts in Amina House boat & our experience was not up to the mark. This House boat requires lots of Improvment & maintaince.. 1. There is no Tv in rooms which is basic requirement. Other House boats are providing the same. 2. They gave us suite room which was poorly maintained by there staff. The blankets was very dirty i think they didnt wash it from years.. When i asked for a bedsheet they provide me used bedsheet with foil smell & spots all over. I again asked for new but nothing satisfactory happened.. Bath towels were in poor condition. 3. In rooms there were spiders web all over..... is in this way you maintain your suite room... Highly disappointed.... 4. Break fast they serve poha & bread butter jam with tea thats it......... Its better you choose some decent hotel in this Amt. Nothing is special about this House Boat... Avoid.........
We had booked through a travel agency for 2 nights and we could not go through to the 2nd night. We got ourselves changed to another hotel on land. The houseboat is beautifully decorated on the inside with a common area where they have a television with cable network with al almost all channels (we could not explore all the channels ) but the staff is absolutely incompetent and would pester you for tips and a good review despite the pathetic service and food. About the rooms they are beautiful we were put up in a suite at one end of the boat which had two queen sized bed but with just one fan in between which did no good to help us beat the June heat. Further we would not open the windows without inviting mosquitoes for a blood feast. Food is served between 8-10 Pm and is as bad as the service. Parathas were served in the morning without any curd. least said about the paranthas would be that you could kill someone with them. And yes about the pathetic bathroms, The bathrooms are decently euqipped and would exite you with a bathtub but behold your exitement as you canot use the tub as there is not stopper provided and you are asked not to drop water on the floor . to add to your wow there is no curtain to help you with that request. SO much effort for taking a shower. In all i would never recommend a stay with Amina.
