    I want to recommend the New Buckingham palace, I found this houseboat through a New Zealand couple I met during my stay in Leh, Ladakh.

    I spend 3 days on the houseboat during my trek in the north part of India.

    The owner has shown me a lot of Srinigar during my short stay. like the mughal gardens, dachigam national park and mosque in old city. also a Shikara was included which was a really nice experience.

    When i arrived at the houseboat i was feeling a bit sick but the lovely family of Mr. Hameed provided me just what i needed. some smashed potatoes and a coupe of soup. The prices mentioned on the website are true.

    regards, P. Gerrits

  3. After exploring Ladakh we arrived to Srinagar and we found Abdul Hameed Dunoo owner of the New Buckingham Palace who offered us luxurious acommodation in a houseboat on Nageen lake. The houseboat is really floating palace. Of course the price for this houseboat we found very much for us but the owner has negotiated the price with us. We are a group of six person (three ladies and three gents) and have stayed there three nights. The boat itself, the service and food we have found really excellent.
    Mr. Hameed has arranged and suggested to us beautiful sightseeing places. Me on behalf of other five people (Ms. Petra Chaloupecka, Ms. Eliska Krejsova, Ms. Magda Leva, Mr. Martin Setnicka, Mr. Pavel Menc) all Czech Republic highly recommend Mr. Hameed Dunoo, his beautiful houseboat, food and service.

    regards, Michal Setnicka
