“Helpful front desk but untrained and bungling staff”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 November 2011

After staying with the hotel, I find the hotel reviews on Trip advisor for this property - misleading to say the least, and probably sponsored.

First the positives. Close to railway station, Food from room service is good in quality and taste. Front desk is manned by decent people. Television has all channels.

Negatives - Buffet breakfast spread is very limited (flakes, parantha, toast and tea), and on our second day they didnt serve breakfast at all and they didnt inform us. On asking, we were told we can order from the room service. Rooms are nothing great, no carpeting. Housekeeping is horrible. We had to ask for towels on both days. They cleared the room of utensils without permission, my wife had her contact lenses in one of them, and we had to work hard to get them back by going to their kitchen and checking the bowls one by one.The hotel aisle has a door at its end, which opens into nowhere - a risk if you have small children. The staff may be eager to please but seem to have undergone no training.

Vehicle hire was smooth, however the driver wasnt pleasant and impolite at times. He screwed up the main reason we hired the vehicle for - he said it was ok to reach Wagah border at 430pm on the weekend to watch the parade, when infact he should have advised us to reach 230pm or earlier. I thought Rs 1200 for Indica for 8 hr 80 km was on the higher side (included about Rs 70 for parking and toll)

I wouldnt stay there again, nor will I recommend my friends to do so.

i visit Amritsar at least once a year and this time i choose to stay at the Raj continental as the room tariff was in my budget that is under INR 2000 for one night which also included the breakfast
the room size was good and so was the service at the reception
it was a neat and clean room with comfortable beds and nice air conditioning
the complimentary breakfast was also nice and it was very convenient to move anywhere and everywhere in the city from the hotel

Room Tip: room no 105 was the best room and i stayed in it

I was in amritsar with my family and stayed in this hotel. I can say that hotel was very good in price and location also. Staff were very cooperative. Hotel is located within a km from amritsar railway station and near by from market. I will recommend this hotel every one who are going to visit the Golden City along with family.

Room Tip: All rooms are good so no need to worry.
