What's Good: We stayed in New Alexandra houseboat for One night when we were in Srinagar, 15th June 2015 . The stay was fantastic! The houseboat offers a lovely view of mountains and the cool calm waters of Dal lake. They really take good care of you and make sure that your stay with them is very comfortable.The food was much to our liking and the houseboat is very well maintained as well.Highly recommend this if you are looking for a comfortable stay.

What's Good: Overall the experience was nice - good food, nice rooms, nice location and view, nice housekeeping Just that I am not sure if the houseboat I stayed in (Manhattan, opposite Ghat no 3) was from the New Alexandra Group. Everything else was fine. Had a memorable time there. My best wishes.

Good Service and nice Ambiance, great food, the interiors are like palace. If you if not stayed in a Houseboat then you have not enjoyed real Kashmir. Also take Shikara ride and enjoy the romance of hills.

I would never ever recommend anyone to stay in this houseboat. The room condition is bad, the toilets are in pathetic state no soap is also available to wash hands. The caretaker is not at all friendly, he will always say no to whatever you ask him. Food provided was very limited and after asking for more he said nothing is left. In short waste of money...

People say house boats in Dal Lake has lots of flies n mosquitoes. So they prefer not staying in houseboats. And i too was of similar opine. But my family wanted to stay here 1 night n give it a shot. And it was worth it. ******NO FLIES NO MOSQUITOES****** So here are 2 boats. Great Alexander and Princess Alexander. I stayed in Great Alexander as Princess Alexander was occupied. The only difference between the 2 were the bathrooms. Princess Alexander had more elegant bathrooms. Besides that rooms, Kitchen, Living room all were same. Infact almost all boats in Dal Lake have similar structures n ambience. So before booking this I visited many boats and all were same. With Kashmiri carpets n chinar wood furnitures. So you will find all similar house boats. Now talking about Alexander, its situated between gate 12 n 13 of Dal Lake. They provided Shikara as many times u want to travel to n fro. I had gone out shopping and called the shikara 11 at night. He came there even at 11th hour to take me fro. There is a small kitchen where they prepare breakfast, lunch n dinner. There is always a guard there to help u out in case of need. So overall good ambience, good people, good service. And Dal Lake mai housboat mai nahi rahe toh Kashmir Kya hi dekha......
