Golden Tulip Amritsar
Ranked #4 of 100 Hotels in Amritsar
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 24 December 2012 via mobile

This hotel was our first in India and it was pleasant in every regard. We stayed here for three nights as part of a self-organised visit to Northern India.

The hotel is clean and comfortable, if a little dark in places, and the staff were very helpful, bringing us a drink whilst the desk staff prepared our early check-in.

Our room was clean, as was the bathroom, though the latter was dated. The shower was hot and strong (something we now appreciate is a rarity!) and the usual array of soaps and shower gels is provided, with plenty of towels.

We ate in the hotel restaurant on the first night, then ordered from the restaurant as room service for the other two as we were really suffering badly from jet-lag and didn't have the energy to go elsewhere. The food is better than any Indian restaurant food I've tasted in the UK, and a lot nicer than some of the other restaurants we've eaten at in India, especially for a hotel.

The only complaint I have is regarding the noise. We were in room 201 and bordered by the stairwell and corridor on two sides and the noise from the road on the other. We'd already been told that the hotel was fully booked, and the noise was at it's worst on our final night, otherwise we'd have asked to be moved. Do yourself a favour and don't get a room next to the stairwell!

We asked at reception if the hotel did tours and were told no, in fact the receptionist printed out a guide to Amritsar for us as an alternative. We booked a trip to the border with another hotel, only to find ourselves sat in traffic behind a Golden Tulip car at the border! Might be worth pushing for more info and explicitly stating that you want to visit the border to get their prices and itinerary.

The hotel is pleasingly warm and they're definitely set up for cold weather, unlike other places.

We noticed that our Lonely Planet India guide had the hotel listed as Hotel Grand Legacy, which was slightly confusing.

Having visited other hotels since, I'd say this is a good all-rounder and I'd happily stay here again.

Would like to visit the (small) rooftop pool; perhaps when it's a bit warmer. In this weather the rooftop garden is great for watching the world go by. We even spotted an elephant!

Room : Spacious and very comfortable. Tea-coffee facility was provided. Did our laundry n it ws good. Mineral water bottles were provided too. Bedsheet clean, bed comfy, towels clean.
Bathroom : Clean tho it didnt look all new n bright. Basic toiletteries were provided. Good flow of running tap for a great shower.
Lunch : Buffet...superb...a variety of choice.
Dinner : Ala-carte ...good n tasty. Enjoy having dinner to the soothing entertainment of ghazals in the dining area.
I wouldnt mind coming back to this hotel again.
Distance to the Golden Temple and wagah border is about 20mins drive.

Room Tip: Higher floor rooms are better...i was in 30...cant remember nw..

We stayed here to visit the Golden Temple and the border closing between Pakistan and India (my favorite experience of our entire trip). The room we were shown was large; however, the bathroom was small, no hot water, and there were burns all over the counter and bathtub (from what I have no clue). The hotel is dark and dreary once you leave your room. The food very average by Indian standards; however, after a long day the last thing I wanted to do was to leave and find food. It is relatively conveniently located from the airport and the tourist attractions. I would try to locate another hotel instead of using this one on my next trip.

I stayed here for couple of days to visit the Golden temple and wagah border. This hotel was good and very comfortable. Helpful staff who are tourist friendly. Rooms are huge and well done. Feels quite luxurious and i would think this is great value for the price we pay. They also give complimentary pickup/drop to station etc.
I would give the breakfast a miss here even though the spread is very good---this is nothing to do with this hotel but that the dhabas in Amritsar are just fabulous.

My wife and I visited Amritsar to experience the wonderful Golden Temple and sought a hotel based on Tripadvisors recommendation. We arrived from Jalendar and the hotel lived up to the hype. Beautiful facilities, amazingly professional staff. God willing, we would gladly return to this property.

We stayed at this hotel in March2012 for 2 nights and it was just so fabulous that this is our pre-decided destination hotel for all future trips to Amritsar. Hotel Staff is well behaved, professional and very hospitable. Best part was the terrace pool but since it was still quite cold in March month, we couldn't enjoy a dip but just relaxing by the pool had its holy effect on us. Kids really enjoyed the pastries at the Coffee Shop but the size is a tad bit big for 6 & 7 years old.

Location is good too as it takes just about 15-20min by car from the Railway Station. All in all a very good option if you're planning a quick trip to the city of the Golden Temple.

Golden Tulip is a decent option to stay when you go to Amritsar for a holiday. The service is decent, food is decent and the rooms are decent. The car pickup came as scheduled to the railway station. The staff were helpful and assisted us in getting to Harminder Sahib. The hotel is located close to the station, but slightly away from Harminder Sahib. It is a good value for money hotel, which meets ones requirements for a 2-3 day stay.
