Photos Facilities Map Streetview Reviews

Veena Palace is a neat, quite group of Houseboats on Dal Lake which will suit your budget (economy or deluxe).

The Veena Palace is a group of 4 HouseBoats on Dal Lake, Srinagar. Two HouseBoats are category Deluxe and the two other houseboats are category C. (The official Rectorat of Tourism of Jammu and Kashmir issues certificates for HouseBoats and categorizes them into 5 categories: Deluxe, A, B, C and D.)

Apart from the bedrooms, HouseBoats of category Deluxe have a shared living room, a shared dining room, a shared patio and a shared rooftop. The category C HouseBoats have a shared living room, a shared patio and a shared rooftop.

There is running water in every room and hot water is available at anytime (unlike in other accommodations). There is a private bathroom with a bathtub in every room.

You can request vegetarian breakfast (additional 130R per person), vegetarian lunch (additional 200R per person) and vegetarian diner (additional 200R per person). Extra charges for non- vegetarian meals.

To go from the peer to the houseboat, a Shikara (taxi boat) service is included in the price.

The place is extremely quiet and the landscape wonderful.

There are a lot of options to go hiking, sightseeing, trout fishing, camping, tours to Lama Valley in Ladakh, etc.

This is a Trusted Review. Why?

Staying at Veena Palace house boat is value for money. It is very safe, clean and comfortable. Mr. Firdooz's service is excellent. I found the simple breakfast and dinner very delicious.

Despite being a single Indian lady traveller visiting Srinagar for the first time, I felt very much at home at Veena Palace House Boat. Mr. Firdooz made all the arrangements for my sightseeing and ensured I was safe all along. He even came to pick me at the airport. The sightseeing plan he suggested was such that I did not get tired at the end of the day but covered all the important places.

On my request for shopping suggestions, he arranged for sellers of orignal Kashmiri products to come over to the house boat and show their products. It was a very different experiece to see their products in the cozy living room of the house boat. The products were authentic, unique and very nice. He even helped me get discounts.

He also arranged for me to pay through credit card for my stay and the things I bought even though they did not have credit card facility.

I would recommend this place to all those who travel on a budget but want excellent value for their money.
