Reviewed 18 April 2014 via mobile

Hi,

We have visited Amritsar for 2 nights.
The hotel is very basic and quite old.

The people are very friendly and helpful.

The standard comparing to other guest houses/ hotels in the area is higher.

If you are coming for a short period (1-2 nights) that can be a good option.

Stayed: April 2014, travelled as a couple

We stayed in this hotel after reading good reviews on TripAdvisor. We were very happy with the hotel - the room was very clean and tidy (and much larger than we expected). The staff are very helpful and friendly, always asking how you are and taking the time to chat.

The best thing about the hotel is its location - it is 30 seconds walk from the Golden Temple!

At first we had a bit of trouble finding the hotel but if you give the full address when asking how to get there then you shouldn't have too much trouble.

Room Tip: Ask for a deluxe room when booking online.

the hotel is very close (100 meters) to the golden temple and in a very central and busy road. It has been very difficult to find it since its tinyneon signboard it is not very big, but once you find it you will enjoy every moment. The atmosphere is nice, the room was sparkling clean and spacious, full of natural light and with hot shower. The staff (especially mr Aggarwal) was polite, helpful and full of hints and tips about what to do in the city beyond the visit of the golden temple, what to see and where to eat the best punjabi food.He will go extra mile just to make you feel comfortable and make you enjoy your stay. I would definitely come back and recommend this hotel.

I would never normally stay in a hotel like the Holy City but was pleasantly surprised by the standard of my room. It was a Super Deluxe room which was very nicely furnished, comfortable and well worth the money. For the budget traveller who has a short time to visit the Golden Temple then you could do no better that to stay just a 5 minute walk away from the temple. The staff were very kind and informative. I'd stay there again.

Room Tip: Super Deluxe rooms

Service is very helpful, staff very friendly, rooms are clean and bathrooms nice. The localisation is excellent- 5 min from Golden Temple. You can order a taxi whenever you want, taxi drivers are ok and the price is reasonable. Around the hotel are many places where you can eat good food and go shopping. We strongly recommend.

Its is a good hotel. In the old city, really close to golden temple. It has clean rooms, good shower, and nice service. And its not so far from the train station, so its very cheap to take a rickshaw to get there.

This hotel is run by Mr Aggarwal and Mr Gupta. They were both very friendly towards me and showed genuine concern when I got good poisoning from too much bazaar food.

My room was good but that's because they told me that non a/c rooms were not available so I ended up paying more than I wanted.

The location is fantastic. You can walk to The Golden Temple in a few minutes only, a place I recommend you spend the bulk of your time in Amritsar. It is very beautiful and utterly peaceful.

Overall the hotel is a good stay, with a clean a/c room, tv and hot shower. I would stay here again when I come to Amritsar.
