Where To Stay In Srinagar

Houseboats are a great way to enjoy your stay in Srinagar.

A unique way to enjoy the picture perfect locations of Srinagar is on a houseboat. These houseboats are typically 2-5 bedrooms and come with a dining room, living room, deck and a bath. These are firmly anchored to the shore. They are accessible by road or by a short Shikara ride.

Houseboats can be booked for stay either on Dal Lake or Nagin Lake and the Jhelum River. The ones on Nagin Lake are more expensive, but the area surrounding Nagin Lake is much quiter than the area around Dal Lake. The cost of hiring a houseboat is inclusive of all meals and travel to and from the nearest jetty. Expect to pay upto Rs. 3000 for a couple per night on a deluxe houseboat. The houseboats on Jhelum River are very close to the bus station and the area is a little less expensive is quiet and nice.

For an on the land experience of Srinagar try the Bloomingdale Hotel behind the Boulevard Road in the heart of the city. A number of hotels line the Dal Lake area, room tariffs range from Rs. 500 to Rs. 5000 per night.
