“Great location, shoddy stay”
Reviewed 30 October 2013

This hotel is by the side of the Golden Temple and less than a block away from Jallianwala Bagh, Amritsar, giving it a truly vantage position. We stayed here in end-October and found the rooms rather cramped. The staff was polite and helpful though. Food is expensive at Rs 400 per head for a simple vegetarian meal. The hotel offers pick-up and drops to the airport and railway station at all hours, which was a big help. But the approach road is blocked and broken, making access with luggage an impossible task.

Room Tip: Do ask for a room that matches their promotionals

Good hotel located at 2 minute walk from Golden Temple. Very good housekeeping and quite polite staff. Although restaurant is not up to the mark, but food is good. Hotel car is available for city tour.

Stayed there in Aug '13, Starting with the one and only good point about this hotel - it's location, 5 mins walk to Darbar Sahib.
IF YOU ARE PLANNING TO STAY HERE, DONT. rEAD BELOW TO KNOW WHY.
The hallways, Cafeteria, smell overwhelmingly of used socks and stale food in the fridge. Inside the room (DELUXE ROOM nevertheless) the bed sheets feel tacky in their cleanliness, the same smell as the hallways inside (ESP in the rooms on the ground floor), the air conditioners in the room are from the year 2000 and before, the air conditioner in my room had wires protruding from it and you had to switch it OFF to start it, which i came to know wen a untidy guy from the staff came to check it 45 mins after i complained for it at the reception.

And once you pay advance for it but later decide to cancel the plan, they promise you to return it to your account but THEY just wont return your advance payment.

Room Tip: I stayed in the super deluxe room on the ground floor and it was terrible.

We have done our booking thru Clear Trip before 1.5 month prior to our visit. But trust me the room are so unhealthy and uncleaned. Dirty use towels are their in the bathroom which are not taken by house keeping. lots of dirt and even the dirty pillow covers are kept on the bed.

Room Service is too poor they never give tissue papers when ever we ordered any food. Sugar cubes are kept on the plate instead of Sugar pot. What I say should be less.. After spending one day they have shift us in the room which is actually booked by me. They didn't give priority to the customers who came from cleartrip or some other website. They welcome and gave priority to people who come thru jacks.

Since it was very Very busy due to the Celebrations of Gurpurab that by mistake of Housekeeping used towels have been left in the room but we immedieately got the whole linen changed for you & even on your request we gave you a bigger room at no extra cost for your mother since she was unable to walk.

We serve sachets of sugar & not sugar cubes......

But anyways we have pulled up housekeeping & room services to make every Guest Comfortable...

Thanx

the hotel is just in the front of golden temple.. 2 min. walk.... the staff is cooperative... but the problem is that no car can reach at the hotel.. due to the construction of the gurudwara car parking so every one going to the hotel had to step down 100 mts below the hotel, it will take another 3t o 4 months in solving the problem ... but the location is very good.

Room Tip: the room are quiet smaller but have all the requirements ... t.v. are still of the most older versio...

I had stayed in this hotel for one night in end of September. It was OK OK place. This hotel is 2 mins walk from Golden Temple, that is Plus for this hotel. But if you have heavy luggage, it is really difficult because autos and cars are not allowed in that area of this hotel and golden temple. I had to use 2 Tuk Tuks for 3 people of us and heavy luggage to go upon market where my car was parked.
There is Restaurant in this hotel, food taste needs to be improved and also more food items should be added to menu.
Overall place of hotel needs improvement as in cleanliness.
