Reviewed 30 December 2013

When we checked in at 12 midnite, they gave us a run down and damp smelling rooms with terrible combinations of bedsheets, curtains, a noisy air con and damp blankets.

We wanted to check out and were very upset as the rooms online were totally different from the one given to us. We asked them to show us their suites and thats when they show us their super deluxe room and charged us another RUP1500 for a relatively decent looking room, which was below the road level. The aircon leaked the 3 days we stayed there. Good distance to the Golden temple though. Hot tea flask was so dirty and oily... badly maintained except for the good location.

Best location in Amritsar for visiting Golden Temple. Its opposite to Langar Hall & two minutes walk to Golden Temple. Hotel staff is very supportive, welcoming & always ready to assist you. In fact front office Mr. Amar & Mr. Kumar are also very supportive in arranging cabs & ready to guide you. Hotel rooms are decent & spacious.

Room Tip: If budget permits go for suite they are on top & have view of golden temple from room.

I have stayed at CJ International thrice during the visit to Golden Temple. The only reason I booked this hotel was it is bang opposite the Golden Temple entrance. Other than this benefit there is nothing fancy about this hotel. Rooms are small, not too clean, food is very average. I will not recommend this place for a family stay but if you go as a stag and need a place to sleep then fine, else there are much better options in Amristar now. Take your call!

Hotel is very near to Golden temple , restaurants and shops are very near this is biggest advantage of this hotel.

I booked a delux room , most of the rooms are under renavation i think and the room i got was not good , there were open wires , old AC which was not working .

I asked for wagha border taxi at reception they told it will cost 1300 , after checking out side i came to know taxies charge just 800 rs .finally booked out side.

One more thing they have restaurant but no food is cooked there , they will just get it from out side.

12 kms from airport and much lesser from railway station, CJ is 50 steps from the Golden temple complex. Come out of the hotel to enter the complex!!
However, the surrounding area is not clean, roads are barricaded 100 metres from the temple so you need to walk to the hotel with your luggage, But once inside the property it is fairly clean, has a lift, the lowest cost double room is small but reasonable to move around and has attached bathroom and TV. This is a basic B&B- but what should one expect more from a US$30 room, inclusive of breakfast and taxes?
My objective of going multiple time to the temple was made easy due to the proximity of this hotel.
They have room service, lift and staff always willing to assist you. The hotel also provides car with chauffeur for local sight seeing at very reasonable charges.And the reception is manned 24 hours so you are free to come back at whatever time.

The best part of this hotel is its location. It is right opposite to the golden temple entrance gate and at 2 minutes walking distance of Jalianwala Bagh. The golden temple can be seen from the balcony of the room. The rooms are not great but clean and decent. The staffs are helpful. Food is not great. Better to avoid food in the hotel. There are lots of good restaurants in the location. The cabs are not allowed in the golden temple road. You have to get down some 200 mtrs away from the hotel. I called up the reception and they sent someone to take the luggage from my cab.

I had stayed with my wife for 2 nights in the top floor room. It was nice and clean room with Golden Temple view. The staff was courteous and gave us extra tea sachets asked for and food was served hot...Mr. Kunwar at front desk was helpful in arranging taxi to border ceremony...
