Sitara Niwas Hotel
Ranked #63 of 100 Hotels in Amritsar
Reviewed 29 May 2014

After having surveyed up to eight different hotels in the block, we finally decided to spend 1000 Rs for a non-A/C room in this hotel, as all other options seemed worse in at least one aspect.

Compared to the rest of the bunch, Sitara Niwas was cleaner, bigger, had softer beds and working tv and relatively okay staff. Hot water worked (but who wants hot water in May?) and so did the wi-fi. About 7 3/4 minutes walk to Golden Temple.

There's a very similarly named hotel around the corner - Sita Niwas, which was cheaper but only had box-sized rooms.

Room Tip: Rooms on the backside have a balcony and are really pretty quiet. Top floor is much hotter than the...

After looking at 20 plus hotels in Amritsar we decided to stay at the Sitara Niwas Hotel. The price was only 1200 rupees and it had wifi, and hot water both of which worked well. The room was large and clean. The room had a nice window with a balcony which was a nice bonus. If you go to the rooftop you can see the Golden Temple. The roof top would make into a wonderful roof top restaurant.

This hotel is on a really noisy street next to a roundabout. No hot showers and the staff is not really helpful. Good size rooms and clean. It still is a good walk to the golden temple. I would stay here again if it's a short visit.

The room I got was very spacious and had plenty of hot water, balcony and at night it turned out - quite cosy with the bed-lightening on. The wifi was very fast and stable in the room, and although they had no restaurant, they offer room-service from a place nearby. The room and the hotel in general is very clean.

The management at night was not so good at English (but still very friendly), but at daytime the guy was aboslutely capable at communicating -. helpful and very friendly.

The hotel is abt two minutes walk from the Golden Temple, so it is a perfect location.

For a budget hotel to be - this is good value for money. I initially booked one night, but stayed two. When I left, they helped me to get a rickshaw.

I felt very good in this place, and can recommend it.

Stay was OK. Only one person to look into all needs of Customer in all Rooms. Hot water was not working my Room (115). After telling at the counter the night before (Immediately after checking in), they still could not fix it. Next morning also they were unable to provide hot water. After seeing good reviews booked the hotel but was Bit disappointed.

This hotel is situated at the best location in Amritsar. Very near to Golden temple and Jalianwala bagh. Service offered by the staff is fantastic. Little improvement that they can do is in quality of food.
