Just waste of money photo is very good but actuall
Pankaj Jain , May 17, 2018
Waste of money. If you see the breakfast you cannot eat. If you are three or more than three you cannot take the Bath in the bathroom because there is no hot water available. If you are in you cannot go to the market to time
Only recommended in summer time not in winter
Anil Madishetty , Apr 16, 2018
The location of the hotel is bit far away from road, you need to take shikara ride all the time to reach to the hotel, this boat house are good in summer not recommended at all in the winter time, it will be very cold in the winter time however in the summer time these will be very good option, the room are average. But the service provided by the guy (poor fellow) is very good.
Good but not good in winters

Good Houseboat but okay for one day only. Nice view. Heater blankets do not work, too much chilled atmosphere, should have given heater, electric kettle. Very good for couples but in summer time, they don't provide kawa drink as shown on their Make My Trip Page. Slightly smelling blankets.
It's a old property & food was not good
Asif Mohammed , Jul 15, 2016
Stayed 3 nights in Amina Houseboat. Like any other houseboats, it's a old property. Mr Bella (the owner) is very co-operative and helpful and so are the staff. Don't expect professionalism from the staff. Although, there are rats in the room but it's a good place if you want to stay in home like environment. Food was not so good.

Nice Stay in Houseboat and the staff were really helpful, they have arranged shikara ride also for that particular as we want to visit the same but I have booked base category so view were not so good. And we can say if I have to again in houseboat then I will choose the same.
Disaster stay experience

Does not recommend anyone to stay in deluxe room. Service was too bad. Furniture was old and quality of bedsheets and blankets are really bad. Deluxe room was in an old houseboat. Restaurant quality is poor.
Good houseboat with good staff
Harish , Jun 28, 2016
Nice houseboat to stay. Staff is cooperative. Loved the place. View are mind blowing. Best thing about the property the owner of the hotel is also very nice personality. Had problem in starting but he personally took initiative and cleared the mess.
Good property at beautiful location
Harish , Jun 28, 2016
Property is good. Location is beautiful. Travelled to houseboat by shikara that was wonderful experience.. Food was delicious. Staff was helpful. Value for money booked deluxe room in this property with map plan which was value for money.
One of the best houseboat
Rahul , Jun 28, 2016
Very beautiful Houseboat with very good staff and amenities. My family enjoyed staying there in the housebot. Staff is very gentle and food is also very good. Three thumbs up for the houseboat and their staff.
Umesh Soni , Jun 25, 2016
In this house boat I booked my room with meals & breakfast. With complimentary shikara ride & fruit basket in welcome but he does not provided them. He charged me for mineral water with meal & breakfast. Meals quality is not good he served chapati without butter & in hard condition rice not cooked well.
Enjoyed staying & rooms are clean
Deboshree , Jun 24, 2016
We booked a deluxe room for one night. The interior decoration of the rooms reflects Kashmiri culture. The wooden works are very good. The rooms are clean. Though the backside rooms doesn't have Dal lake view but it was nice staying at amina group of hotels.
Nice food and good facilities
Biren Vyas , Jun 21, 2016
Hotel has good facilities... And also good service.. We will come again.. Hotel is also on good location.. Like a heaven in Kashmir.. Food was also nice.
nasarulla shariff , Jun 17, 2016
It was a good experience to stay in a house boat with the Ameena group. Beautiful location on Dal lake. A lovely morning to start and a lovely evening and night lighted with house boat lights. Stay once to experience it yourself. Good luck.
Harmeek Singh , Jun 17, 2016
The house boat was neat and ideally situated for nice view of hills and dal lake. free shikara ride from road to the houseboat was added advantage. Room service was prompt and always attended. I would recommend that everyone should try.
RAAJ kumar Gaur , Jun 17, 2016
Overall experience was good. We asked for a vehicle at airport, the vehicle was there, it took us to Dal lake, Shikara was waiting for us. We reached houseboat and were asked to choose the room. The staff was courteous throughout.

I booked a deluxe room and they were giving cottage or a lower category room. After complaining they gave the deluxe room. Everything was perfect after that. Still the pictures shown during booking were much better than what we got.
Santosh Sonar , Jun 17, 2016
I was on ten days trip. My worst experience was in houseboat. They have not provided any extra bed in spite of paying for that. Even they have not provided the opted deluxe house. They arranged a room for us where light points were not working, window glass broken, bathroom curtains missing.
A very good place to stay
Dhiren Shah , Jun 15, 2016
Location is great, good experience at Amina Houseboats. The room was very clean and very well maintained. It includes free lake crossing and complimentary breakfast. The Hotel price is very much affordable. It provides a good speed WiFi. The place is very quiet. I went with my family and had a great experience. You need to go to Ghat No. 12 where you will get a boat that will take you to the houseboat.
Drram Kushwah , Jun 14, 2016
Location is great, good experience. You can get cabs and tries for Gulmarg and Sonmarg in cheap rates by contacting houseboat owner. Shikara ride was great. Houseboat is also near Hanging market.
Good room for the price
Akarsha Kadam , Jun 09, 2016
Very economical rooms. However when we went the wi-fi wasn't working(ie 2 nights). The staff is very helpful. You might have to wait a bit for your shikara ride for crossing. The food here is not good though, but there are a lot of options on the opposite side. People visit this place in groups, so be prepared for some noise.

A very pleasant stay
Staying on a houseboat was a very new experience for me and I enjoyed every bit of it at Amina. We were initially a little apprehensive about it since I booked online and we weren't sure how comfortable a houseboat would be for staying 3 nights! But we ended up loving it. It is right on the Dal Lake and can be accessed from Ghat No. 12. You have to use a shikara for travelling to the mainland and back and luckily these shikara rides are actually included in your room charges so you don't have to pay a penny extra no matter how many times you want to go to the land. Only the shikara ride around Dal lake which takes you to the floating markets, etc are chargeable. Though it's a little far from the main market, it is easily accessible by rickshaws and cabs. The rooms of the houseboats are big enough and well furnished. Every houseboat has its only dining hall, private terrace, TV, etc. But the most remarkable thing about Amina is the hospitality of the staff. They are really friendly, helpful and will try in every bit to make you comfortable. The food was amazing and homely. As good on the tummy as on the tongue. They themselves guide you about the rest of the trip and the owner himself can arrange for cabs to Gulmarg, Sonmarg, etc at a reasonable price. There are a few cons - the phone/wifi connectivity is not always that good, they cut the electricity for a couple of hours in the morning (though it's at a time when people are likely to go out for sightseeing, etc). But overall it was an amazing stay and I would specially like to thank Bilal bhai, who personally took care of us in the boat, Aslam bhai, the captain of our shikara and the owner of course.
Amazing, superbout of the world
Great experience. Out of the world experience when you see sunrise or sip evening tea in house boat. Firstly houseboats are totally safe. Kashmiris are warmly hospitable & Mr Shakeel bhai (owner) is great example of it. After living in houseboat I lived in very reputed OYO 6410 Amina HouseBoat but experience was no way near one in houseboat. Halal & Gulzar worked hard to make stay of guest comfortable. I think anybody will be fool if one does not experience stay in Amina house boat. I also criticise those who have given negative reviews as every thing you ask is provided in houseboats.Location, food, hospitality, rooms, decor everything is superb. definitely it is the biggest and most amazing houseboat of Dal lake
First visit to The Land Of Heaven - Kashmir
Staying in a houseboat was my dream which became true this 1-4 March tour of Srinagar with my wife. After a long research over the reviews of various houseboat options, I found this one better and it was totally a very satisfied stay of 3N/4D. Amina Group of Houseboat is situated at a very prominent place in Dal-Lake and shikara was mostly ready within 1-2 minutes to drop us at the road side. Mr. Hilal was our caretaker and made us feel very comfortable with his quick service. Quantity & quality of food was really awesome as we included both breakfast and lunch/dinner with our stay. Amina Group of Houseboat will be our home whenever we visit Kashmir next.
Became awsumm stay due to rain
I was there on 4th may .. Called mr. Shakeel at night when i reached ghat no. 12 and he managed shikara to bring us there .. In that heavy rain .. Actually this houseboat is not located exactly opposite to buleward road .. Its slightly backside but view is amazing from there .. I paid around 1100 on mmt for 1night with dinner and breakfast .. Worth stay .. Dinner and breakfast was good .. Staff not provided hot water at night but provided tea when i asked .. Overall service was good .. Beauty of Dale lake can be experienced here
Overall it is average, not excellent
We occupied four rooms in three different houseboats. All are different from each other. One room I occupied is below average, this is in the smallest houseboat. The view available in the makemytrip site is of the best houseboat of the group. So, others are not like that. Mosquitoes are plenty. On my request, one mosquito repellent was provided, but not available in all rooms. Drinking water is important. Houseboat supplies mineral water bottle on payment. It is average.
An excellent location with wonderful service !!
On of the most memorable stays so far. Shakil and his team at Amina offered excellent hospitality to us and made our stay in Srinagar a memorable one .. A highly recommended property with GOOD, CLEAN, POLITE service. Most importantly, the houseboat group has their own group of Shikaras which would always be ready to take you to the banks whenever you want( even at 10 in the night !! ). Truly satisfied !!
Different experience and comfortable rooms
It is different from a normal OYO 6410 Amina HouseBoat. The manager, Halil, was friendly and helpful. The breakfast was a big turndown. It had bread-butter, bread-omlette and Poha on demand. However, rooms were comfortable and cosy. The floor shakes when someone is moving in the corridor. But it feels nice. That is what makes you feel like you are in a house boat. Overall, a nice stay.
Good experience & quick service
It was a good experience overall, we stayed in a cottage houseboat. Service was quick. Food quality was also good. Would recommend all to stay there. Behavior of the attendant (faizal) was very polite. Requesting all not to buy anything on your way from shikara to the houseboat as the vendors cheat you by selling duplicate products.
Excellent house boat good hospitality
It's excellent houseboat in Dal lake, beautiful location and rooms are really excellent with royal look. It's services are also very good and prompt, staff members of OYO 6410 Amina HouseBoat are also very good, excellent hospitality from OYO 6410 Amina HouseBoat staff members. Food was very good including breakfast & dinner.
Best service and staff
It's a great experience with Amina Boat, all kind of support with us by the staff, service is the best. I suggest to all of you to stay with Amina Group for best experience.
Awesome location and friendly staff
The location was awe inspiring, staff friendly, safety maintained, value for money perfect and overall great. I would recommend you to have a stay there. The boat aka shikara used to travel to the houseboat is great fun in itself.
For the ones who are going out there for 1st time amina house boat is great deal but make your stay for 2days as it is better shikara is for free and rooms are okay to stay amazing staff as gulzar bhai and bilal had made stay wroth amazing place and great deal
A nice stay
Nice stay at Amina group of houseboats, pleasant behaviour, good location and service is also good. Room mainly cottage are good and nice to stay, thank you very much, good hospitality and cleanliness maintained.
Nice houseboat with good services
We stayed one night with my and my brother family. Good experience. Gulzar who takes care of the particular houseboat served us with very energy. Food was good. Location was fantastic. Overall, a good experience.
Good location and services
Very good place to stay with family and friends. Location is good. Service is good. Rooms are clean and cosy. Supportive staff. Really a new experience to be at house boat. Beautifully decorated rooms with magnificent wood work.
Very Nice and comfortable stay .. Enjoyed the cottage room with complimentary breakfast .. Location is good but the best part is the service .. Very attentive and humble .. Will surely come back whenever in Srinagar
Very nice stay
If you really want to enjoy real Kashmir, do stay at one of the houseboats and we have chosen Amina group of Houseboat. This place is classic and you will feel real Kashmir while your stay, in terms of the local art and craft used at every corner of this houseboat.
Room conditions was excellent
Location is very good and room conditions was excellent. Low Price houseboat and excellent room service. Hotel sikara not good and not punctual in time. Hotel management staff was very good in natural.
One of the very Nice house boat in Dale lake
Every things is OK, no words about any quarry. Only one mistake by me I book here one stay. Superb service, reasonable & deliciuos food quality, antique furniture, awsome location in Dale lake, maintained property, twenty four hours service available.
Good location with nice service
Houseboat is situated in the centre of dak lake. Service is good but food is not so tasty. Staff is cooperative and helpful. In evening view of Dal lake is amazing, char chinar looks so beutifull. Overall this houseboat is a relax place.
We stayed one night with two friends, we had a wonderful stay, Room was clean, and very Nice with royal look, service was good, food also was very good, amazing location and amazing people .. If i ll go to Srinagar again i ll absolutely stay there again
Very nice rooms with all needed things. Hot running water in the bathrooms. Hillal bhai was a very nice person always at our service. Shikaras are available for free from 8 am to 9 pm to reach road side and houseboat. Though cost of food is little high.
Spacious rooms & delicious breakfast
Houseboat was very good. The rooms are spacious and very much clean also. The breakfast was also delicious, they serve you with butter toast cup of tea and poha. Location is also very good. Ghat no. 9 and 12 are the closest point from where you can take the shikara to reach the houseboat.
