The house boat is just about the experience.The houseboats are good but all look similar .The carvings and intricacies inside the houseboat are good but the stay quality is very average.The beds aren't very stylishly maintained.They can make the experience better by adding great bed linens and duvets,currently the bed linens and duvets are very old style and doesn't compliment the architectural beauty of the houseboats.So I think it can be improved a lot plus the water in the lake should be cleaned and maintained,the water is very dirty and have lots of insects.

Beautiful carvings, best hospitality and great room to stay. Overall a very different experience for living on water and location is also fantastic. Meals are tasty although just veg. I would recommend this place for stay in summers.

One important thing while choosing a house boat in Dal lake is that it should have a gud distance from the road so that you have a good view of the lake from the house boat. Alexandra Houseboats do offer you a spectacular view of the lake. It is located in the middle of the row of house boats and has a wide stretch of the lake in front. The rooms are pretty decent and the services are warm. Food is basic but nice to have, while in the boat you should not miss to ask for the Kahwa, the local beverage. The staff is courteous and will ensure a relaxed stay for you. None of the rooms have a view so doesn't really matter, however, the boat does offer an outside seating area for an awesome view. The people taking care of the boat will help you commute from the boat to the road in the Shikaras. All in all a good choice to stay.

We reached Srinagar early in the morning by 8:15 am, my daughter got air sickness in the flight and started vomiting, our first day in the itinerary was in boathouse, we were a family of 5 people me my husband my mom n dad and my daughter who is 3yrs. I refused to stay in the boat houses I told my agent to book a hotel for me as my daughter got ill and I would not like to take a risk to stay in the boat house. Our tour agent assured he will check what best he can do as its too early meanwhile you can go to boat houses and relax for a while. We drive to boat houses and reached boat houses where our shikara was waiting for us and Mr. Yousuf Manager of the boat house was waiting for us. I was very nervous and told Mr. Yousuf that we will be staying in a boat house for an hour we just need a hot water for my daughter as she is not well he replied madam I know your agent told me and we have informed Doctor as well, who will be coming in any moment & in about 20 minutes Doctor came, check up my daughter and advised manager to arrange specific medicines and kahwa. Within no span medicine came and couple of boathouse members were with kahwa some with water, Within Some while Mr Haseeb came who is the owner of those beautiful boat houses Young boy but very experienced in his work very polite and Humble , Due to nervousness and very first day in Sri nagar unknown place I was worried as well.I said to Mr Haseeb please stop doing all this I am not going to stay in your boat house I will stay in hotel and my agent is arranging he will call us any moment and we have to leave, his reply was we are not doing this cause you will stay in my boat house. We were on boat house front veranda where you can see the fabulous view he showed me his hotel on the banks of dal lake and said look that is my hotel I will shift you there dont worry but have kahwa and relax for a while your daughter is not well its my duty to arrange every necessity to her to be sure she will be safe and sound and all of you guys can have a memorable trip, have your tea and I will arrange your stay in hotel. After having medicine and with the warm gesture my daughter was absolutely well within 2 hours. After a while we were been asked for shift to hotel , I requested can I stay here only and the manager replied madam few hours before you only said us you want to stay in the hotel to stay safe , i said if you really want me to be safe and enjoy my trip please allow me to stay in this boat house only, he was like ok madam as you wish, and those two days for us were the most memorable days of my trip later the manager of the Boathouse Ramzan cook and the boathouse attended was like a family, my daughter my mom used to go in the kitchen and share our day experience with them, last night my mom said to the attendant she wants to cook cholay and he said they are not allowed as there is fixed menu , I said to him if Mr Haseeb is here only we will request him as he is very humble I m sure he will not say no and fortunately he was on the round to his boat houses as his office is across the lake and had a small office at boat houses where his managers used to sit, i met Mr Haseeb and said can you allow us to please cook cholay as my mom want to have but she wants to cook by herself , he replied please do it fast as i am also feeling hungry. Lol I mean they are the people who really dont care about the money only they care is about your service and your safety and once you entered New Alexandra palace boathouse you will surely get peace and you will feel the hospitality.
