    Great to be back here after a few years! Same family run business doing their best to ensure everyone has a great stay and will return again when possible. It certainly works - great staff, superb food, and the decor is just amazing, makes even budget travel feel like five star luxury. Treat yourself.

    It was so nice and I even got upgraded from 8 shared dorm to private room just for free. The sunset view from the restaurant is so stunning and the locals are so nice.

    Was super happy with my stay at Lala Rukh’s. It’s a family-run business with lots of heart and energy, it was a nice experience getting back to the houseboat every day to unwind. Very much recommended!

    I recently stayed at Pasadoona, a group of houseboats that are situated on Dal Lake alongside the main city. They are some of the friendliest, accommodating people I have met and I often ate my meals with the owner and chefs which was a great experience and the food is 10/10. There are many treks with stunning views within a short distance of the houseboat and would recommend to anyone looking to escape the crowded cities and enjoy the more peaceful towns and epic mountain views. Returning soon!

    First of all, though I booked lala rukh they put me in another houseboat named Safina quoting some weird reasons as both belong to the same family. Safina was ok. The staffs primary goal seemed to be making you spend money and once they figure out you are not falling into their tricks, their attitude completely changes. Besides the alcohol parties by the staff on the houseboat made me worry at times. The location is good. Any HB on gate 9 is ok. Don't recommend this place for solo travelers
