Gulmarg makes you feel in a winter paradise and I think that’s the main reason why Kashmir is known as Mini Switzerland. Here is a complete review of Hotel Fluorescence, Gulmarg, based on my experience.
The place is ideal for everyone. Be it a honeymoon couple, or a backpacker or trip with friends.
About the property:
Hotel Fluorescence is located in the scenic beauty of Gulmarg. It is approx a 15 to 20 mins walk to Gandola ride-booking office. Your own vehicle or the cab hired will only drop you till halfway in Gulmarg. Depending on the road condition due to snow, you need to take the local vehicle with chained tires.
They charge 300 Rs in sharing and around 900 to 950 for private booking.
The property has on all 2 floors. The view from the top floor is amazing, luckily we had road facing top floor room. The front view of the hotel was more amazing than the back.
The room had a hot water facility, a room heater, and a TV. There was no bed heating system, considering how cold Gulmarg gets in winters. I think the heating system could have been improved. All the staff including the guy at the reception were very helpful. Overall it’s a good budget hotel to stay in, with definitely good views and is near to the Gandola Ride office.

The breakfast and dinner were included in our package. I had booked this package with a local Tour company from Srinagar(Drop a comment if you need the details for the same). The food was good and they had ample space in the cafeteria. For breakfast, we had bread toast, and paratha with tea.
