I just read the last review of the place and must say I was surprised. I was here last May [May 2011] and I thought it was pretty decent stay.. not as pathetic as mentioned in the below review. Things can change in a year... so can't say.. but I atleast had a decent experience. The staff was VERY hospitable. There are no lifts here.. so that is a bit of a problem.. but I did not experience any other broken latches.. bad bathrooms as such. Infact, they were pretty neat!
The view of the Golden temple is ofcourse not like you get to see the main shrine! but at the average cost of the Hotel, what you get is really not bad.
Its like, almost next door to the Golde temple, so I was not surely complaining. All in all, I had a decent experience here.
[I chose July 2011 as the travel time below, as the review does not let one select beyond one year's travel dates.]More
