I recently went traveling to Kashmir; and Srinagar was my base for a few days to explore the nearby areas of Gulmarg, Pahalgam, Gurez, Sonamarg and several others. For all of these areas, I made it a day trip; meaning that I used to start early from Srinagar and return back by evening. In Srinagar, I was staying at this wonderful place called Hotel Grand Valley Inn; and in this post, I want to share how my experience with this hotel was. I will provide more details and a few pictures in the article below but to summarize it all, I will highly recommend this hotel to anyone traveling to Kashmir. My stay here was very pleasant; and I know for sure that every time I go back to Srinagar, this is where I will be staying. I must first admit though that I did not quite came across this hotel all on my own. Faisal runs his motorcycle rental agency in Srinagar and we have been good friends for quite some time now. He is always my go to person when it came to anything about Kashmir; and it was him who recommended Hotel Grand Valley Inn to me. I stayed here on his advice and I must say that I am glad I did. Hotels in Srinagar City Srinagar is one of the most visited tourist destination in our country and as such, hotels here are in abundance. The entire Dal Lake is actually filled with hotels in form of houseboats. Come to Srinagar anytime and you can be sure that you will have no problem finding a place to stay. Common thing among all good hotels is that all have nice clean rooms with good smelling bed sheets and towels. That is more like a given factor because without it, they won't survive in the industry too long. But what sets a hotel apart in my experience is how the people over there treat you.It is the service that really makes a difference.
